2018 Wedding Trends


We enjoy keeping an eye on wedding trends for our clients and thought we would share what we have gathered for 2018. We have also included a gift guide for you! We hope this helps during this busy wedding season!

We reached out to some of our local designer and bridal boutique owner friends for their input on wedding trends for 2018. Most wedding planning begins with the dress, and we will begin right here as well!

Wedding Rings

Southern Living revealed wedding ring trends to look for in the year of 2018. These trends includes styles such as east-west, multiple bands, hexagon cuts, bold band, rose gold, stacked, and mixed metals.

Here is our take on these trends...

Bold Band

The 14K Gold Vine Ring by ExVoto Jewelry cast from an antique Victorian wedding band and can be stacked with other bands.

Stack-able

The 14K Gold Winthrop Ring by ExVoto Jewelry is also cast from an antique Victorian wedding band and makes another great option for adding to a stacked ring set.

Stack-able

The Dottie ring by ExVoto jewelry (available in our showrooms), also available in 14K gold, makes for a great wedding band and perfect for stacking.

Mixed Metals

Mix up our favorites for a mixed metal look! The Vine ring and the Sterling Silver Winthrop ring make a great pair for a stacked, mixed metal combo.

 

Groom's Ring

The Patrick Ring and the Basket Weave Ring (available in showrooms) from ExVoto Jewelry are both nice options for a man’s wedding band. Both styles are cast from antique rings. The Patrick Ring can be engraved as a signet ring with either initials or a meaningful date making it highly personal.

Several brides have gifted their mothers with our Molly Slide Pendant on Keller Necklace and custom engraved a personal message inside.

The Tracey Necklace with the Christy Pendant also makes a great gift for a mother. Custom engrave a message on the inside and say something special.
