The 2019 Wedding Trends You Need To Know
April 8, 2019
2018 was a year of royal weddings! Seeing Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry’s weddings gave the world all kinds of inspiration and sparked a bunch of new trends. Trends changing is completely natural cycle, with some things getting overdone and old faithfuls being brought back from the past time and time again. Luckily, wedding umbrellas tend to stay the same and quality simple design will suit any wedding.
Here are few of the more interesting trends for 2019 that caught our eye:
Pantone’s colour of 2019 - perfect for spring and summer weddings. Instantly brightens the theme when added through flowers, bridesmaids dresses, cakes, makeup and colour schemes.
Directly inspired by Meghan Markle’s wedding dress. Her simple, brilliantly tailored look made everyone appreciate minimalism once again. The key to nailing this style is knowing what shape suits you and finding the right silhouette. Clean, fresh makeup finishes the look.
Churches and venues continue to be decorated with green branches rather than flowers. An organic and botanical look incorporating trees and foliage is the way to go this season.
Royal Wedding Cakes
Royalty inspired cakes started popping up at weddings towards the end of the year and 2019 is set to carry on with this opulent trend. Complete with monograms, metallic touches and piped icing decorative finishes - the cakes have definitely moved on from the naked trend of previous years.
Bridesmen and Groomsgirls
With gender related conversations continuing to take up more space, wedding planning could not avoid being affected by it. And rightly so! Mixing up genders and age when it comes to your wedding party is a modern way to go. Bridesmen, groomsgirls, flower grandmas (instead of flower girls), and best women show us that gender and age should not impact on who we want standing next to us on the most important day in our life.
Alternative Engagement Rings
With so many wonderful rings out there it’s no surprise that future brides want to receive a unique one. Princess Eugenie’s blush-pink sapphire engagement ring took centre stage at her recent wedding and Katy Perry received a bright pink oval shaped diamond from Orlando Bloom. If colour isn’t your cup of tea, there’s also plenty of more muted rings out there to think about such as grey diamond rings.
With everyone going vegan and vegetarian at the moment it can be quite hard to organise wedding feast that will please everyone but grazing tables full of nutritious snacks such as olives, cheese, nuts and crackers will be a sure winner!
