Whether you are about to walk down the aisle or you’re on maid of honour duty, it can be a tricky proposition to navigate the deluge of wedding ideas from Instagram, Pinterest, and the like. Do you want a traditional white dress or maybe you should go bold and try something eccentric? Hmmm, what’s a bride to do?

If you’re wondering what’s new and next for the wedding season, we turned to some of the industry’s top experts for their take on what’s in for 2018, from colour palettes to unforgettable decor pieces:


Floral and Fruity
“There’s a growing trend of combining florals with fruit. For example, lemons and thyme in Italy; pineapples, orchids, and camellias in the tropics; or pomegranates, grapes, oranges, jasmine, irises, marigolds, and some orange lilies in Morocco.” - Renée Strauss, wedding expert and co-founder and CEO, Wedaways. We love this because if you’re in the mood to incorporate something tropical, then we have the perfectribbon colours for you. With more than 80 ribbon colours available, the possibilities to create truly unique wedding packaging are endless.


Natural and Organic
“Locally sourced organic ingredients are still in demand. Beautifully presented, simple food is on trend. Think: burrata with beetroot and lime, mini tacos with a shot of tequila, or mini sliders with a side of sweet potato fries.” - Sarah Haywood. The demand for more eco-friendly weddings is on the rise, with more people being environmentally conscious, we have noticed a demand for our natural packaging.Natural kraft packaging is the perfect retail gift packaging solution for natural skincare and beauty products, organic and specialty gourmet food gift hampers and now weddings too.


Feminine and Gracious
Inspired by the iconic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's and everyone's darling, Audrey Hepburn, today's colour palette is a feminine, classic and elegant affair.  These wedding features Tiffany & Co. blue paired perfectly with the sweetest soft pinks, hints of grey and black with accents of Tiffany silver and gold. If femininity is what you have your heart set on, you are going to love ournew rose gold collection. Rose Gold is everywhere and it isn't going away in 2018, in fact it's getting more popular by the week. We are delighted because frankly - it's gorgeous! You now have the opportunity to capture the contemporary trend of Millennial Pink in all its shades into your own luxury gift packaging with our unique Rose Gold pearl lustre gift boxes available across 6 sizes.


Bright and Bold
Summer weddings usually sport the brightest, boldest colour palettes—and for good reason. They're sandwiched between a flood of spring pastels and the rich jewel tones of fall. Embrace the hues of the season, or let a favourite metallic lead your colour scheme. From metal to bright, take a look at ourslot boxes and interchangeable ribbons to match your theme. If you're going for a bold and bright colour scheme, choose hues that are either complementary (opposite each other on the colour wheel) or analogous (next to each other on the colour wheel).Read our blog post on the art of combining colours.
