Congratulations! You’re getting married in 2019! Saying “I do” to spending your life with someone you love is worth celebrating. And this is your year to shine! Here are the biggest and latest wedding trends for 2019.
2018 was a year of big weddings thanks to the royal family, which only means 2019 is bringing bigger and better trends.
Now’s the time to go green, even when it comes to your wedding. Once again, Price Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was an ethical affair, so you can expect brides and grooms of 2019 to follow suit.
What’s in an eco-wedding? You can expect to see locally sourced ingredients for the treats and food, foam-free flower displays, and ethical wedding dresses, non-toxic makeup and hair products, and of course energy-efficient venues.
2. Simple Wedding Dresses
2019 might just be the year of minimalism since we’re seeing so many classic, simplified designs trending. The days of the big, princess dresses are in the past. Let your true beauty shine with some of the trending simple, classic wedding dresses.
All this was sparked by Meghan Markle’s ceremony gown and reception dress. She’s redefining what it means to look like a princess in the 21st century. Check Azazie for the latest simplified inspiration.
3. Instagram Moments
It’s no surprise that social media is playing a huge role in our special events nowadays. More weddings are opting to include “Instagrammable” moments within their ceremony and reception. From colorful confetti to photo backdrops, couples are finding fun ways to include their guests in the photo festivities.
5. Copper Accents
When it comes to metallic accents, we’ve seen almost everything. Yet, copper is a trend that’s due for a moment in the spotlight. Kim Forrest of Wedding Wire insists copper is one of the most versatile choices when it comes to wedding styling, so it’s expected to be everywhere in 2019.
This is a modern take on a metallic accent that fits this year perfectly. It’s the perfect mix of pinkish-orange to match any color scheme without looking overdone or old-fashioned.
As you can see, there are a lot of fun trends to look forward to in the upcoming year. We’ve seen a lot of changes and there are even more to come. What do you think of these latest wedding trends?
