The beginning of the year is a time when we can mentally reset our clocks, reprioritize our lives, and set attainable goals. It’s also a time to look ahead to the next 12 months and predict what trends are staying, what trends are going, and what trends will be most popular. If you’re getting married this year and want to stay on top of the latest wedding crazes, here are the 2019 wedding trends we’re most excited about:
Colours: Pantone-Inspired Palettes, Purple Hues, and Dramatic Tones
Fashion is cyclical, and wedding trends are no different. Coral has been bouncing around for quite a few years now as a popular wedding colour, but now it’s official: Pantone has named “Living Coral” as the colour of the year. Luckily, this friendly shade of orange-pink is easy to find at flower shops. You can find everything from peonies to roses to hypericum berries.
This year, purple is on fire. With a wide range of popular shades, such as vibrant violet to soft lilac, there are plenty of ways to express yourself with purple. Plus, these royal hues are suitable for every season.
Not into the purples or pinks? No problem! In 2019, colour trends have gone slightly moody. Dark, smoky blues, deep greens, and dramatic burgundies are giving these bright tones a run for their money!
The Return of the Wedding Cake
The traditional wedding cake has been through a number of transformations in recent years. This decade, newlyweds have opted out of tiered cakes in favour of cupcake towers; fondant-friendly layers were stripped down during the “naked cake” craze; and lately, having no cake at all as been a popular way to save money.
But in 2019, the wedding cake is making a comeback! This year, you’ll find wedding cakes that are fit for a museum or a tea party at the Mad Hatter’s house. Cake designers are going all-out this year to show that the tiered wedding cake is an essential part of the wedding day.
What better way to distinguish your wedding than to create a signature wedding scent? This year, couples are investing in their guests’ olfactory experience by spritzing their invitations with a bespoke scent and adding plenty of scented candles to their décor and centrepieces. Send your guests home with a candle that smells uniquely like your special day; it will rekindle memories of your wedding every time they light it.
The Return to Nature
Nature and weddings go hand-in-hand. From table arrangements to the bridal bouquet, incorporating nature is a trend that you’ll see often this year. In 2019, couples are taking that one step further by bringing in dramatic boughs, tall grasses, and mossy décor. Expect to find living archways and wedding favours that you can plant.
