Wedding trends vary each year, so it's important that you're always in the know, in case your big day is coming soon. From the type of cakes to colour palettes and the choice of stationery, you'll have to think about various segments, in order to make your wedding truly remarkable. If you're engaged to be married in 2019, check out some of the following hottest wedding trends in the current year
Minimalism won’t be a big deal only in the sphere of interior design anymore, but it’ll slowly move onto the wedding décor as well. If you’d like to have a minimalistic wedding, all you need to do is stick to clean lines and a simple colour palettewith a maximum of three colours in the mix. Florals with more architectural shapes, along with marble, stone, wood tones and other natural elements are all amazing choices for making your wedding look minimalistic. To keep your wedding attire simple as well, wear a gown with more coverage and clean lines, and avoid plunging back and neckline.
Innovative flower choices
Unexpected flower add-ins are a huge hit in 2019. Think wheat and pampas grass instead of fresh blooms. Grasses can look very chic, adding another layer of depth to the design. Feel free to highlight the aisle in your ceremony with some unfussy grass. It’ll easily elevate any element of your wedding, so consider including it into your after-party to create a bit of that moody vibe. However, this is not the end of floral trends, because you’ll also have a chance to display florals in countless creative ways throughout an entire celebration. Make them a part of the furniture, spread them over the ceiling and cover archways in lovely blooms, to get that special ambience to your big day.
The grand send-off
After the celebration is over, you’ll need a final touch that will leave all the guests in awe. A good sparkler exit is just what you’re looking for, so think about colourful smoke bombs that’ll leave a cloud of dreamy pigment in their wake, making a transcendent set of photographs. Also, setting off to your honeymoon in a cool set of wheels is a great way to make a grand exit. Having a vintage car as a part of your ceremony is a big hit in Australia these days, so think about looking for classy wedding cars that you can rent and ride in style on your big day. Confetti is also back in style, so if you're going for that perfect Instagram vibe, get a whole bunch of colourful confetti and your wedding will be trending in no time.
Outstanding wedding cakes
Thanks to the 2018’s royal weddings, everyone wants to amp up their wedding cake game, so you’ll be seeing a lot of opulent wedding cakes trending all over the internet. Regal piping, personalised monograms and metallic touches are just some of the trendy details everyone is going for in 2019. We’ll also be seeing plenty of amazing textures, such as show-stopping sugar flowers, decorative finishes and rippled icing, that will make your mouth water just by thinking about it. While in 2018 couples wanted an assortment of treats on display, 2019 is going to be all about the statement wedding cake. Think about including warm bronze, gold, pale blue and soft grey into your wedding cake design, for the ultimate eye-catching look.
New entertainment options
Wedding photo-booth has been a trend for years, but now you’ll want to make a difference and look for new and unique ways to entertain your wedding party. How about hiring a caricaturist, or a tarot card reader? The sounds of a harp and a piano will have a soothing effect on everyone after an entire day of dancing, so booking a pianist or a harpist will create an angelic and calming ambience just when it’s most needed.
Have you thought about personalizing your nuptials? Well, we have the perfect suggestion, if the answer is Yes. Think about hiring a local artist who’ll use the artwork in multiple ways to make your wedding stationery as special as possible. If that option exceeds your budget, consider creating DIY save-the-dates with your own illustrations, to add some personal touch. Think about a cohesive look, and start telling the story about your relationship starting from the save-the-dates and through the invitations, all the way to place cards and linen napkins. If you want to go a step further, think about making unique invitations in a form of video messages.
If you’re going to get hitched in 2019, it’s high time you looked at the hottest wedding trends. From minimalistic wedding to opulent cakes and grand send-offs, pick some of the amazing trends and make your wedding the most beautiful even in the years to come.
