When it comes to weddings, to each their own.
For any couple tying the knot, it’s their day and their day alone to do whatever they want with – begrudgers be damned.
But there as weddings become more commercialised and brides and grooms increasingly look to social media for inspiration for their big day, there are certain trends we see popping up over and over again at weddings.
One of the most overdone trends for weddings in 2018, according to a top wedding planner, is the trusty decorated wall.
Yep, you’ve surely been at a wedding where there’s been a flower wall but Robin Weil of WeddingPlanner.co.uk has told The Independent they’ve become overdone.
It’s a trend that started with celebrity weddings; most notably Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s extravagant nuptials in Florence, Italy in 2014.
We love a flower wall as much as anyone (what better backdrop for a selfie?) but we’d have to agree that we’ve seen a lot of them over the past few years.
If you’d rather go for something a little different but still have a very floral theme running through your decor, you might consider suspended flowers instead.
The trend has grown in popularity on Pinterest recently and it’s easy to see why.
It’s a fresh, colourful touch that would work for either your ceremony or your reception, depending on your venue.
Hanging flowers would make the picture-perfect alternative to the flower wall too and are ideal if you’re going for a rustic or boho theme.
