With a new year upon us, it’s time to get up-to-date with all the new and exciting trends that will make your wedding unforgettable. If you are planning on walking down the aisle this year, congratulations! You’ll want to pay special attention to this post. Each wedding season brings an opportunity for couple’s try new, innovative ideas that will set trends for the rest of the year. You don’t want to be recycling fads that were used countless times by other brides in 2018. Sit down and take a look at a list of our five favorite new wedding trends for 2019.
Center of Attention
It’s time to think outside of the box. One new trend that is taking the wedding scene by storm is weddings “in the round.” You may have heard this term used to describe a play or musical done on a circular set with the audience surrounding the performance. This is the same concept.
By saying your vows “in the round,” everyone at the ceremony gets a unique view of the “I do’s,” and more of your guests can sit closer to the altar. This is a fun way to add a bit of flair to your ceremony, having it stand out from the traditional chapel-style set up. On her wedding day, all brides want to be the center of attention, and this set up will give you just that.
Edgy Color Palettes
Jewel tones are all the rage. Edgier color palettes are being utilized more and more in weddings this year, and it isn’t slowing down anytime soon. The décor of your ceremony and reception would have deep teals or maroons coupled with metallics like copper or chrome.
Other ways to incorporate an edgy or moody palette would be the utilization of dark woods. This creates a moody effect when paired with low tea candles. Couples who have executed a darker color palette have also had floral arrangements and centerpieces crafted from darker foliage, like magnolia leaves, to continue the theme.
In the past, bling and opulence have dominated the wedding scene. In recent years, that has changed as weddings have become more personalized and intimate— no matter the size. A way couples have brought the attention back on the nuptials is by toning down the décor with clean lines and lots of empty space. Minimalist cakes, or naked cakes, are also very popular. These types of cakes are mostly bare of icing and are usually topped with elegant foliage and flowers.
You can thank the royal wedding for this one. Whenever a royal wedding happens, it is bound to set some trends. When Megan Markle stepped out on her wedding day in her fabulous, yet classic, gown, the industry was changed for the better. Brides everywhere were looking to capture the natural elegance she exuded.
When looking for a classic wedding gown, search for clean lines and a simple silhouette. Even though classic dresses are all the rage, it is still your big day. Remember to wear something that you feel reflects your personality, beauty and confidence.
Coming up with a great party favor can be tough. Lots of couples are leaving their guests with personalized favors that they can use. Some gift ideas could be cigars, candles with a signature scent or a small bottle of liquor marked with the wedding date or couple’s monogram. There are some many fun places you can take this idea, so the people who were there to share the day with you will always remember.
