2019 wedding trends
Updated: Oct 24, 2019
Here's where weddings are heading in 2019.
Florals, cakes instead of desserts, changes for the reception, long veils, there are a stack of trends happening and I've captured the most impressive ones here.
The Outfit Change
Obviously, we can thank Meghan Markle and Gwyneth Paltrow for this one! We will see more brides/grooms with a number of outfit changes throughout the course of their wedding. For the evening reception, we’ll be seeing jumpsuits, elegant separates, classic/simple gowns.
The Statement Veil
Again, thanks to Meghan Markle: the statement veil is back. Meghan’s 16-foot cathedral veil was embroidered with a flower from each of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth which made a statement as she walked down the aisle. You will also see short lace veils worn across the face, tuffed-up blushers (see Mandy Moore) and also coloured veils!
Bright Floral Arrangements
Unique floral and greenery installations are hot and will continue to boom but be ready for bigger, bolder and brighter arrangements. You will see violet flowers and shades of purple making an appearance.
Violet floral arrangements are going to be big in 2019
Desserts Instead Of Cake
2018 has already seen a trend for dessert tables, ice cream carts, doughnut walls, these will continue to trend in 2019.
We know how great glittering confetti looks when it’s tossed on newlyweds as they make their grand exit. We’ll see more couples skip the plastic confetti and opt for lavender or flower-petal toss instead. Both smell great, have the same visual impact, and will biodegrade, leaving behind no waste.
Wedding Guest Entertainment
In addition to a band/DJ, we’ll see couples experimenting with ceremony entertainment. Think lawn games, magicians, tarot readers, circus performers, face painters and so on!
Calligraphy dominated 2018 but in 2019 it will be about the nouveau and gold-foil lettering.
