1. Think pink
Pantone coined “Living Coral” as its color of the year and everything is coming up roses—literally. This color scheme works especially well for a sunny summer wedding and can add a feminine touch to everything from bouquets to makeup choices.
2. White out
In years past we saw champagne, soft pink, off-white and even non-traditional colors dominate the wedding gown scene. This year, classic white reigns. Whether it’s a long gown with a halter neckline, shorter cocktail dress or a puffy tulle style, white is sure to turn heads.
3. Go green
The natural floral trend that has dominated centerpieces and bouquets isn’t going anywhere soon. In 2019, think organic and lush for a whimsical and romantic look and feel. Speaking of green, more and more brides are opting for eco-friendly and sustainable choices from everything to gowns to food options.
4. Captivating confections
This year brides are opting for wedding cakes that, well, take the cake. So, don’t be afraid to be a little extra when it comes to flavor, texture and finishing touches. It's all about a custom creation – let the your imagination soar and the rest will follow.
5. Invitations to impress
Why opt for traditional wedding invitations when you can make it your own? Some couples are choosing to make a bold statement by commissioning hand-illustrated designs. It adds an element of personalization to the stationary and the wedding itself. You can find designers on Etsy who know how to capture your personality and theme.
6. Bucking tradition
No longer are brides and grooms expected to embrace long-held (and perhaps antiquated) norms when it comes to wedding party selection. We are seeing more couples bringing in their nearest and dearest, regardless of gender, to join them in celebrating their big day. Think bridesmen, groomsgirls, flower grandmas (instead of flower girls), and best women. Anything goes!
7. High (or no) tech
Every bride wants to look back fondly at her special day. Traditional still photos and video can only do the event so much justice. That’s why some couples are bringing in drones to capture different perspectives of the wedding day. On the other end of the spectrum, experts say unplugged ceremonies will continue to increase in popularity. This means guests will be encouraged to refrain from photos during the ceremony for the sake of enjoying the moment.
