Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s time once again to reflect upon all the gorgeousness we saw this year from central Texas weddings, and today we’re sharing our favorite Austin wedding decor trends of 2018! These statement-making decor choices add a pop of pizazz to ATX weddings and styled shoots and inspired us to be bold! Take a look back through some of the top decor trends from this year – and cheers to even more trendsetting events ahead in 2019!

Patterned Linens

Cocktail tables can almost be an afterthought, but a fun patterned tablecloth is just the ticket to make those little vignettes really pop! Stripes, florals and everything in between brought life to receptions all over Austin in 2018.

Rugs Underfoot

Adding casual textures and boho vibes, Austin brides incorporated tons of mismatched, layered and patterned rugs this year. Rugs are a fun way to add color and pattern, allowing you to express your personality in every corner!

Long Family-Style Tablescapes

Round tables are lovely, but in 2018, we saw many brides switch things up and opt for long, narrow head tables and guest tables going for as far as the eye can see! This stately design allows for statement-making table runners and intimate conversations – two things we also adore.

As the end of the year approaches, we wanted to celebrate the beautiful blooms we saw in 2018 and take a look back at the Austin wedding floral trends that caught our eye! Austin brides found so many ways to add life and dimension to their weddings with gorgeous work from our talented local wedding florists. Check out these trending floral designs and stay tuned to see which ones will carry into 2019. Cheers!

Varying Heights

Tight, uniform bouquets are a thing of the past. In 2018, we enjoyed a plethora of perfectly imperfect bouquets – lots of organic arrangements with a loose piece or two sticking out for visual interest. We love this whimsical style!

Peachy Keen

One color we saw again and again in 2018? Peach! This happy hue pairs so well with greenery and warm-colored blooms. Peach made its way into all kinds of bouquets, bringing a cheerful tone to so many scenes!

Climbing Greens

Up, up and away! Climbing greenery was popular in 2018, adorning arbors and staircases and everything in between. Climbing florals draw the eye upward and make such a statement – we can’t get enough!

What a year for bridal fashion trends 2018 has been! We’re rounding up some of our favorite trends as seen in gowns from top Austin wedding boutiques and from local gown designers. These trends speak to so many different styles, and we can’t wait to see what sticks around for 2019. No matter your bridal style, you’re sure to find plenty of inspiration and trendsetting looks in the latest Brides of Austin magazine. Cheers!

Illusion Lace

Ethereal and subtly sultry, gowns with illusion lace popped up in several weddings and styled shoots this year, and we can see why! This style is a romantically feminine way to accentuate your décolletage and to add sleeves, if you desire, without adding too much heaviness to your look. So chic!
