5 Upcoming Wedding Trends You Should Know:
With 2019 now here, the wedding planning fun is just beginning. Wedding vendors and planners are already seeing a ton of new trends popping up as they start to look towards the coming year. Here are just a few of the trends we’ll be seeing in 2019 that will help make your big day extra special.
1. Shades of coral
Pantone recently announced its color of 2019 is “Living Coral”, which is a vibrant, but mellow coral hue with golden undertones. This cheery tone is perfect for weddings and is a fantastic color to incorporate into a sunny summer wedding. From flowers, bridesmaids dresses, color schemes, and cakes, we will surely be seeing a lot of coral in 2019 weddings.
2. Alternative engagement rings
We’re seeing a rise in alternative engagement ring styles, proving not all girls want a diamond as their best friend. Opal engagement rings are on the rise right now, as are colorful stones, like Princess Eugenie’s blush-pink sapphire engagement ring. Online jeweler, Blue Nile, offers a variety of alternative engagement ring styles on their website allowing you to purchase the hottest styles directly from the comfort of your own home.
3. Simple and classic wedding dresses
With two royal weddings under 2018’s belt, it should be no surprise that one of the biggest influences on bridal trends this year is Meghan Markle. Just as Kate Middleton’s long-sleeve lace bodice served as inspiration for brides after her wedding to Prince William, expect to see hints of Meghan’s bracelet-sleeved, bateau-necked ceremony gown and halter neck reception dress when you’re shopping. For this particular style, finding the right silhouette to suit your shape and tailoring are key!
4. Banquet tables and low centerpieces
Couples are ditching round tables and tall centerpieces for banquet tables with low floral centerpieces. This is great because not only will your guests be able to see each other, the newlyweds will also be able to sit in the middle without feeling like they are on display. Not to mention, it makes for wonderful photos!
5. Do It Yourself
There are so many DIY details you can add to your reception to wow your guests. Food bars, donut walls, unique escort cards/seating charts, and personalized cocktails are just a few of the many ways you can make your reception look and feel more upscale without breaking the bank. Here are a few projects you can do on your own that are so pretty, your guests will never even know you made them yourself!
