What’s new with weddings in 2019
Now that 2018 wedding season is slowly coming to an end, we can now look forward to what will be in style in 2019. And of course, the 2 royal weddings this year have had a tremendous influence on next year’s styles. And it appears that brides are looking for simpler dresses, going back to nature with much simpler decor. Ceremonies will be more and more unplugged and the tradition of the bouquet toss and garter toss is dying. So, here are some of the new looks we can look forward to:
1/ Wedding dresses
We will see wedding dresses being a lot simpler with long sleeves. Many brides will mimic the style introduced by Meghan Markle. Strapless dresses are out. You will see more and more matching capes worn over the dress.
As worn by Duchess of Sussex and Princess Eugenie, many brides will also wear tiaras.
Grooms are loosing the sense of uniformity and wanting more a style of mix and match. So, you will see grooms wearing navy blue or grey suits or tuxes and their groomsmen dressed in grey or black suits or tuxes. Less “matchy matchy” as many would say.
The popular color for next year is purple. Metals are still in and the mix and match look is really big especially in place settings.
The tall centerpieces are out and the lower ones have become the range. Also, Dahlia flowers are all the rage. The trend of lots of candles, greenery and twinkle lights continues.
Bringing nature into the decor is really in as seen by the decor of the outside St- George’s Chapel where Harry and Meghan got married.
Many couples are also choosing not to have a sit down meal, but rather have food stations where guests can mingle and taste a variety of different dishes.
Instead of using a videographer, couples are now choosing to have their ceremony video filmed by a drone. I had a couple use a one for their wedding and video turned out really nicely.
Stay tuned to more news on the new trends for 2019.
