Ultra Violet Is THE Color Of The Year
Pantone announces the colour of the year to guide designers and brands in their creative direction. When Greenery was declared the colour of 2017, the demand for green décor skyrocketed, making its presence felt within bouquets, centrepieces and wedding invitations. This year, you could choose this enigmatic shade as your overall colour theme. But if you want to stay on trend and be minimal, include purple accents into different aspects of your wedding, think purple themed gifts or a purple veil.
Say “Yes” To Dessert (Or Snack) Tables
Having a dessert table within the wedding venue will create an element of surprise as guests normally expect to have dessert during their last course. However, with a dessert table in place, they could have dessert anytime they want. Alternatively, you could set up a snack table so that guests who arrive early could help themselves to some food if they’re feeling peckish.
Get Edgy With A Dose of Black
Wearing black to an auspicious event was frown upon since it’s a colour often associated with funerals and bad luck. But times have changed and most brides (and families) are willing to try something new. If you’re thinking about a wedding dress that carries a certain amount of drama, this is the one for you.

2018 Wedding Trends Include Transparent Elements
Glasshouses used to be a place for plants to strive, but in the future, they’ll do more than just house plants. According to wedding planner and blogger Charley at London Bride, transparent settings is one of 2018’s top wedding trend and this isn’t surprising. With the recent interest in minimalism and Scandinavian designs, it’s no wonder that brides prefer see-through decors and venues.

Pearls Are A Bride’s Best Friend
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but pearls are the way to go this year. Forget dainty pieces of jewellery and plain wedding dresses. Instead, pick out an elegant pearl headpiece or an embellished dress for a timeless look to rock these 2018 wedding trends.
Not Your Typical Wedding Meal
In a traditional Chinese banquet, you’ll be served eight dishes since “8” is a lucky number in the Chinese community and it rhymes with the words for “good luck” and “to prosper”. The thing is, most restaurants tend to serve similar dishes: a platter of Chinese cold cuts, Eight Treasures soup followed by fish…you know the drill.
If your family is open to trying something new, why not opt out of the traditional 8-course set menu? You could book a private space and provide your guests with food from say, Mexico or Middle Eastern, through catering or delivery services. Your guests will get to try something new and you could save money by determining how much and what types of food to serve. The same thing can be done at Malay weddings as well since food is served buffet style. Switch up traditional Malay food for something different, if your family agrees to do so. Bringing change to weddings doesn’t mean we’re leaving traditions behind, it’s just a way to spice up events like these. Not sure how to make this happen? Get in touch with our professional team.
