A wedding is all about celebrating a couple’s future together. This is why it’s important to find fresh, new ways to decorate and celebrate the big day. As brides and grooms begin planning their 2019 ceremonies and receptions, here are some of the biggest wedding trends for 2019 we’ll be seeing this upcoming year.
While blush tones dominated the wedding scene in past years, varying shades of purples will be taking over in 2019. Purple is a great color choice for wedding details as it can be bold and dramatic or light and airy. Other popular color choices in 2019 will be silver sage, dusty rose, dusty orange, sunset, sun yellow, berry pink, dusty blue, champagne gold, and cinnamon. As far as metallic accents go, copper and rust will continue to be the go-to options.
More brides and grooms are hoping to make their weddings a memorable experience not just for themselves, but for their guests as well. Personalization is key in today’s weddings. The biggest trend for wedding favors is to have them be related to the couple’s hometowns or current towns. Look forward to seeing food-related favors at weddings in 2019, such as a popular dessert from the couple’s hometown.
In past years, we saw flowers hanging in the air at weddings. This year, florals will be moving back to the reception tables as centerpieces. Greenery will be a popular choice for bouquets and centerpieces with a few bold flowers as accents. Another popular flower trend we’ll be seeing in 2019 is floral arches.
While traditional diamonds will also be a timeless, popular option for brides, 2019 brides will be incorporating color into their engagement and wedding rings. Some brides will be adding gemstones to their bands to add a little color to their ring finger, while other brides will be ditching the traditional white diamond as the centerstone in place of a large colored gemstone such as a ruby, sapphire, or emerald. Online jeweler, Blue Nile, offers a colorful collection of engagement rings directly on their website, allowing you to shop the latest trends without having to leave your home.
Greenery won’t be the only thing decorating reception tables this upcoming year. Velvet, black accents, and lucite are other elements that brides and grooms will be using to create gorgeous, modern tablescapes. On the other hand, traditional tablescapes will be making a comeback as well. Over-the-top tablescapes with monogrammed napkins and tall silver candle holders will be popular choices for the more traditional couples.
