2018 Wedding Trends

Another wedding season is upon us so get out your wedding planner and pull up your Pinterest boards, because it’s time to start planning your perfect Palmetto Dunes wedding. While a lot of wedding traditions and timeless touches will never go out of style, tapping into the season’s wedding trends can add that extra special something to your celebration.

Here are our top 5 wedding trends of 2018 that are definitely worth your consideration.

1. Embracing local culture

As the trend of destination weddings continues, couples are becoming more and more inspired to connect with the local culture during their festivities. Whether it’s a regionally-themed menu, locally-sourced wedding favors, or entertainment from the region, embracing the details of the destination offers your guests with a truly authentic celebration experience.

2. Emphasis on the after party

If you’re planning a Lowcountry wedding, there’s one thing that’s certain—your guests are going to have a good time. Especially with the newfound focus on the after party! This season’s brides and grooms are going for a smaller ceremony and reception and pulling out all the stops later in the night. Offering guests midnight snacks, late-night drinks, and live entertainment, newlyweds are taking advantage of every moment with their guests.

3. Unique food

Couples are opting out of the traditional 3-course set wedding menu for meals with a more memorable touch. From serving their favorite foods and signature drinks to bringing in the big guns with food trucks, portable pizza ovens, and the like, the wedding dining experience is now being taken to the next level. At Palmetto Dunes, we suggest setting up a shucking station to introduce your guests to oysters—a local delicacy in the region.

4. Vibe over palette

In years past, it was all about the color scheme. But this season, instead of starting with colors, brides and grooms are now letting the feel of their celebration dictate the details of their big day. Whether couples communicate visions of a relaxed beach celebration or an elegant Southern affair, or somewhere in between, our team of wedding experts can help turn any dream into a stunning reality.

5. Garden Garnishes

Flowers have always been a key player in wedding décor, but this season look forward to seeing more of the garden brought in the mix. From lush hanging arrangements and fresh cut greenery on tables to living botanical bars and potted plants along the aisle, you’ll see much more of a creative approach to floral displays. We always love making the sleepy oak trees that line Hilton Head Island part of the décor.
