2019 Wedding Trends Forecast
Settle down class, school is in session! We’re saying ‘salutations’ to 2019 with a 2019 wedding trends forecast. We’ve compiled a list of the latest trends, straight from the mouths’ of the experts!
Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral
We’re ready to go under the sea with Living Coral! Pantone has finally selected their color of the year. Here’s what they had to say about their choice: “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” Pantone goes on to characterize this vibrant hue as a “fusion of modern life.” Experts at Pantone recognized this color trend on social media and seeing it as “a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays lively presence within social media.” We love how versatile this color is for different event types / seasons- even if it makes us want to sip a cocktail on the beach!
A work of floral art –
Step aside Michelangelo, there’s a new sculpture in town! Sculptural floral installations, to be exact. Now, more than ever, designers are experimenting with the highs and lows; Adding drama to an everyday tablescape with elegant installations- while mixing in traditional centerpieces. The options are endless with this trend!
An abundance of Greenery
Color us… not surprised. This trend isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. Couples are opting for whimsical garlands and “wild” bouquets to evoke even more romance on the most romantic of days!
The new metallic is.. Rust!
Finally! Those “forgotten” items are back in style. While rose gold is still extremely popular- event designers are incorporating more warm toned metals and even opting for monochromatic color palettes (different tones of the same hue). So don’t pack up that rose gold yet- pair it with rust-colored décor and BAM(!) a monochromatic look that’s not your 1940’s TV show.
“Au Naturel” –
“You’re beautiful just the way you are!” Let us just say that we love ALL types of makeup looks, we’re just here to say that we’ll be seeing a lot more “no makeup-makeup” looks. Makes sense, right? Brides and Grooms are opting for a glow-from-within complexion as opposed to heavily covered up. No matter what you choose to rock, you’ll look stunning!
The one time you can ACTUALLY play with your food! Creative food displays are here, and we’re here for it. They’re an off-beat way to showcase your personality. Consider displaying your favorite foods, a bite that represents how the two of you met, and more!
Mix + Match –
Bring the essence of “home” to your event with mixed-plating! Mismatched china is all the rage and it’s not hard to see why. It’s charming. It’s eye-catching. Each plate has a story to tell.
Blend it all together –
Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Mixing and matching is on-point at the moment, so this is one thing you won’t need to compromise on! We’re seeing rich textiles mixed with lighter elements like lucite, and warm, rustic goodness mixed with modern, industrial elements. Thus, creating a balanced look that’s sure check everyone’s boxes.
Candles galore –
If you’ve a flair for theatrics, then this trend is right up your alley. Start collecting candles now, because this trend require A LOT of candles. To create an even more romantic ambiance, designers are decorating event spaces with candles of all sizes, shapes, and colors. The result: a candle-lit affair that looks & feels cozy.
Long-sleeved dresses –
It was the wedding of the year! Megan Markle and Prince Harry exchanged vows at the beginning of 2018 and introduced the world to a slue of wedding inspo. We adored the floral wall (and after all… you’re my flower wall) and loved (!) her dress. Get ready, in 2019 we’ll be seeing a lot of long-sleeved dresses thanks to Megan and Princess Eugenie.
You want guests to know it’s your event right? 😉 Event branding took a turn for the hot, hot, hot. Calligraphers are in high-demand and we’re sure they’re not mad about it. In 2019, we’re going to see a lot more wax seals, personalized invitation suites, and unique signage.
Unique floral arches –
Arch you glad we’re concluding this forecast with more floral talk?! Obviously you want your wedding to be picture-perfect. So don’t forget about the altar! While you and your future spouse will look amazing, consider adding a gorgeous backdrop to tie it all together!
