Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. You no doubt want your big event to be perfect. For many engaged couples, that means choosing a venue, theme and ensemble that matches their combined style and personality. This also means incorporating some of the latest wedding trends. The majority of trends come and go as styles change and new ideas for wedding themes and décor emerge.
Below we discuss three wedding trends that we can see lasting for the long haul. Whether you and your fiancé are considering a dreamy beach wedding with a bohemian flair, or a classic, formal affair with elegant details, you’ll want to be aware of the hottest trends for 2019. The following 2019 wedding trends are bursting with inspiration for your big day.
1. Dramatic floral installations.
Flowers aren’t just for bridal bouquets and wedding centerpieces anymore – this year is all about dramatic floral designs. From fragrant floral walls and backdrops to eye-catching hanging installations and beautiful blooming arches, wedding flowers have made a comeback in 2019 in a big way. There is something magical about walking into a beautiful venue filled with aromatic florals that make for an unexpected and memorable event. Even if you’re not prepared to create a larger-than-life wedding flower wall à la Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, there are many other ways you can incorporate dramatic florals into your wedding day.
2. Colorful, unconventional groom attire.
In 2019, color reigns supreme. No longer are grooms and groomsmen expected to don the standard black, dark blue or gray suit and leave the distinctive look up to the ladies. Grooms and their friends are thinking outside the box and embracing colorful, non-traditional attire. We are seeing things such as brightly colored suits and mismatched separates – and the result is nothing short of fantastic. This 2019 wedding trend is fun and unexpected. It gives grooms the opportunity to show off their personality too. Whether you are planning an intimate beach wedding, a low-key event with your closest friends and family, or a luxurious, formal affair, consider branching out from the classic look and choosing a more unconventional ensemble.
3. Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles.
They say that history repeats itself when it comes to fashion trends and weddings. As far as wedding fashions in 2019, ruffles are definitely back in! Hold on; if you’re picturing demure, innocent ruffles circa the 1950s, or the flouncy ruffle style popular in the 1980s, this year’s wedding trend is nothing of the sort. Additionally, the hot ruffle trend in 2019 isn’t just reserved for brides who favor an ultra-feminine style. Today’s ruffles are versatile and fashionable and they can be styled to suit any wedding theme or color scheme. From romantic, cascading ruffle gowns that feel sleek and sophisticated, to vibrant, whimsical beach wedding dresses featuring flirty, fun silhouettes, there is a ruffle dress out there for everyone.
How to Make Your Wedding “You”
Certain trends are worth incorporating while others are fine to let go. It can sometimes be difficult to know the difference. Every year, the options available to engaged couples for wedding décor, fashion and florals grow larger and larger. This can be overwhelming. But, the solution here is simple. By staying true to your style and personality and injecting of-the-moment touches like dramatic florals and romantic ruffles, you can throw an event that is truly “you” and that your guests won’t soon forget.
