Now that the year is coming to a close, it’s time to review the best and biggest wedding trends of the year. Here is a look at what to expect next year and some fun ideas for your wedding planning!


Last year was all about pastels and soft wedding colors, but this year brides moved on to bolder and brighter hues. One of the biggest wedding trends was swapping blushes and pastel yellows out for hot pink and bright orange. If you want to try this trend, combine these bolder hues with florals and greenery for a more natural and less neon feel.


As rustic style comes more into fashion, freshly picked wildflowers have gained more popularity. Instead of choosing flowers with no regard for this season or what is available locally, brides are now opting for in-season, local, freeform bouquets of flowers. This wedding trend is a great way to get to know your local florist (or the local flowers in the fields near your home).


A huge wedding trend that started to gain even more popularity this year is using chauffeured luxury transportation to get to and from your wedding venue and reception. Instead of worrying about a friend driving or renting a car, brides are opting for the beauty and elegance of luxury transportation. The Franklin Chauffeur provides luxury transportation for countless weddings every year. By opting to hire a car for your big day, you won’t need to worry about getting there on time, having the right directions, or traffic. You will be able to ride in warmth and comfort and relax with a glass of champagne with your new partner instead!
