While 2017 was all about rose gold and dainty decor/accessories, 2018 is predicted to give a much more industrial vibe to the wedding scene. Copper has been recognized as the popular new metal that is being used in means of lighting fixtures, cutlery, lanterns, and even furniture pieces. This affordable metal pairs nicely with the chic look of white marble, making these two an almost inseparable pair for 2018 weddings to come. Fortunately, this trend doesn’t stop at decor! We will be seeing hints of copper in everything from dress embellishments to floral arrangements and invitations. Even cakes with fondant resembling marble with copper finishes will make an appearance on the wedding table. Can you imagine just how aesthetic a wedding with this theme would be? But don’t take our word for it — check out the mention of this pairing in various renowned wedding publications:
“The great thing about this material, is that it’s super cheap! But looks so effective – especially when reflecting candle light – so lanterns and tea light holders will be key.” – Brides Magazine
“Create an Insta-worthy tablescape by using white marble accents with metallic copper details to add warmth and contrast.” – Wedding Wire
“Metallics are super-hot right now with a major incorporation of copper and rose gold. With acrylic, Lucite, and geometric wedding décor accented throughout. From signs to menus, the theme is definitely a super cool idea.” – Elegant Wedding Invites
The trend is clean, chic, and looks fantastic with the geometrical design elements that we’re seeing so often at weddings. Even if trends start to lean more towards whimsical than geometric, copper and marble will continue to compliment the color scheme of many future weddings. Will you be a daring trendsetter and try this dynamic duo for your wedding? Happy planning, brides and grooms!
