Looking ahead to 2019, here are just some of the trends we’re loving for making your big day that extra bit special.
Pantone has announced it’s colour of 2019 is a bright, sunny, pinky-orange named ‘Living Coral’. A cheery tone that’s perfect for weddings, coral is a fantastic hue to incorporate into a sunny summer wedding via everything from coral coloured flowers, bridesmaids dresses, cakes, makeup and colour schemes.
A return to simple and classic wedding dresses
Minimalists can rejoice because 2019 heralds the return of classic designs and simple styles. And of course, the poster girl for this trend is Meghan Markle and her striking yet simple bracelet-sleeved, bateau-necked ceremony gown and halter neck reception dress.
Bringing the outdoors in
For 2019 weddings, greenery continues to be a classic go-to shade, with flowers and foliage becoming more organic and lush. “Trees and use of foliage throughout floral designs will take centre stage,” describes wedding planner Bruce Russell. “Florals will be natural, whimsical and romantic.”
Three-piece suits for grooms
After years of wedding trainers and loose-fitting shirts, according to menswear expert Dominic Trooper from The Wedding Gallery, 2019 is the year we’ll see grooms suiting up in their best three-piece.
“The styles will be sharper than ever,” says Dominic. “An impeccably tailored and flawlessly fitted design will work perfectly for a super sleek ceremony showpiece. As formalities end and the party really starts, the jacket can be removed and shirt sleeves pushed up for a cool, confident and more relaxed look.
Scenting your wedding
Candles have always been a wedding favourite for creating a romantic mood. To further enhance this, we’re seeing more and more guests opt for their favourite scented candles (or even creating their own scents), to really transform their wedding’s ambiance, and also create a scented memory that they can enjoy and reminisce for years to come.
Opulent wedding cakes
We’ve seen a lot of amazing wedding cakes, but 2019 will welcome even more impressive creations. 2018’s royal weddings are likely to inspire couples to make more opulent choices. Metallic touches, personalised monograms and regal piping will be on everyone’s cake agenda. Even more exciting are the amazing array of textures we’re expecting – rippled icing, decorative finishes and show-stopping sugar flowers will take guests’ breath away. It’s all about bespoke – let the your imagination soar and the magic begin.
Banquet tables with low florals
Another Insta-loving trend we’re seeing is swapping the round tables and tall centerpieces for long banquet tables with rows of low flowers. Guests can see each other, the happy couple can sit in the middle without feeling like they are on display, and it makes for wonderful photos. Win! Source
