Three Wedding Trends for a Waterfront Ceremony

Wedded Bliss in 2018

Located on the Sheepscot River, right along the beautiful water you’ll find one of the most picturesque waterfront wedding venues in Maine. Water’s Edge at Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort features one of the most spectacular facilities to say, “I Do!” The beginning of the 2018 wedding season is underway; here are our three favorite weddings trends for a waterfront ceremony this year.

Trends for Bridalwear

There are quite a few trends within bridalwear that you’ll want to test this year! Veils and the use of tiaras are becoming increasingly favorite among 2018 brides. Along with headwear, long trains for dresses are something to think about when it comes to finding that beautiful dress for the big day.

You might want to mix up the colors of your bridesmaid dresses, while all one color and style is still considered very classic. Changing up the hues and designs allows for your bridesmaids to pick the perfect dress for their body type and ultimately let them be comfortable.

Trends within Menswear

Menswear is seeing a resurgence of color. Whether it’s in the suit or the tie, colored outerwear is increasingly more popular in 2018. You’ll spot hues ranging from pale blush pinks to deep emerald greens. Royal blue continues to thrive as an alternative to black, white, and grey suits.

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and fabrics either! On vests, we spotted fabrics from twills and tweeds combined with the smooth material of cotton for jackets. Make sure to have fun and let your personality shine through the clothing you opt to wear when you recite your vows.

Decor Ideas to Make your 2018 Wedding POP!

Ultra Violet is the Color of the Year, according to Pantone and you’re going to want to have your wedding POP with this bright hue! This bright violet shade works well with yellows, blues, pale pinks, greens, ivory, and more. Your color options will be endless! Use it in your decor, flowers, and so much more. Plus, purple shades work well with the backdrop of the coastal woodland here at Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort and Water’s Edge.

Other fabulous decor ideas:

  • Lots of flowers: potted plants, hanging arrangements, over the top bouquets
  • Add more greenery for a natural touch
  • Create personalized favorites: whether it’s cocktails or menu items
  • Welcome bags and small gifts over the course of a few days rather than one big favor
  • Metallic and geometric elements are significant this year
  • Make sure you consider a photo booth for your guests – the props are endless and we can add your signature wedding name to the photo
