The 2019 wedding season is off to a great start, and we’ve seen quite a few noteworthy trends to watch. We find it interesting how each wedding season seems to carry its own unique styles and ways of doing things, and it appears 2019’s wedding trends will not disappoint.
Here are the top wedding trends we think are worth watching because of just how popular they seem to be.
1. First Look and First Private Photos
Traditionally it was considered taboo for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony. Today, however, many couples seem to think differently and are choosing to deliberately share a private moment before exchanging their ‘I do’s’. This first look trend is also a great opportunity to get some quick portrait snaps taken by your photographer.
2. Spruced Up Wedding Favours
Gone are the days of gifting your guests a boxed piece of cake as a wedding favour. Couples are getting creative and choosing rather interesting things to include inside their wedding favours. We’ve seen everything from natural soaps, to puzzles, and miniature alcoholic beverages handed out to guests. If you really want your guests to feel valued, there is nothing like personalized and unique wedding favour to do the trick. It’s not a bad idea to include a hand-written ‘Thank you’ note as well.
3. Eco-Friendly Weddings
Are you a big fan of the environment, or just worried about the environmental impact of your wedding? We’ve seen an increase over the years in couples who are big on making sure that their weddings have as little impact on the environment as possible, and for this reason are choosing ‘greener’ options for their big day. Practically this might mean using biodegradable plates and cutlery, wedding invitations made from recycled paper, and organic décor. Most wedding reception venues are stepping up to accommodate these admirable values.
4. Non-Traditional Food Stations
Not a fan of traditional sit-down wedding meals? Don’t worry you’re not alone. There’s been an upsurge in couples daring to choose non-traditional food options for their weddings. This is especially true for couples who aren’t interested in footing the enormous food bill that’s generally associated with traditional buffet-style or sit-down wedding meals.
5. Destination Weddings
When people hear ‘destination wedding’ they automatically think of an overseas affair. However, couples are re-defining the term and choosing local, exotic, out-of-the-way places for their big day. For this reason, we’ve seen couples who choose to travel out-of-state for their wedding and come host their weddings in our prestigious The Victorian in Sydney.
