Top 6 Wedding Trends Every Bride Should Know About

Are You a Bride About to Get Married in 2019?

Here are the top 6 wedding trends that every bride intending on walking down the aisle in 2019 ought to know.

1. Here Comes The….dress

2018 had its fair share of weddings, with the highlight being the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle. And for brides hoping to get married in 2019, all eyes were on the dress. Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress did not disappoint. It featured an elegant open boat neckline, three-quarter sleeves, and a train of sizeable length. The dress has continued to inspire, and as you shop, there’ll be no shortage of similar dress trends on the market.

2. Colorful Floral Bouquets

We for one are happy to see colorful floral bouquets trending once again. Recent wedding seasons have seen brides opting for muted color palettes for both their bouquets and their main centerpieces. However, it seems the colour is back in the game and it promises to be a really bright 2019 wedding season, indeed.

3. Eco-Friendly Décor

There has been a recent upsurge in couples looking for more eco-friendly décor and stationary options. A lot of couples looking to get married are making environmentally friendly decisions regarding their big day. This includes choosing wedding invitations made from recycled paper, opting for cutlery and paper plates that can be recycled, as well as for settling for less synthetic décor and more shrubbery and flowers.

4. Radical Food Choices

Gone are the days when weddings were strictly a traditional affair. Today, people understand the concept of hosting a wedding their way. For this reason, we’ve seen more couples break away from the expected meal arrangement of having a traditional formal, sit-down meal. Hire a food truck! Serve your food buffet or cocktail style! Enjoy the freedom of throwing your wedding, the way you want it. Remember, your wedding, your rules.

5. Statement Wedding Cakes

Now you can have your cake and eat it too! If you’re going to splurge on one thing, you might as well make it the cake. In 2018 we saw a lot of interesting wedding cakes and desserts. One thing that was clear to see was that couples seemed to have no qualms about splurging on their cakes, and the bigger the better. The trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down, and will likely continue all throughout 2019.

6. Balloon Walls

We’ve all heard of flower walls, but have you heard of balloon walls? Balloon walls seem to be all the rage this wedding season, because of the numerous ways in which you can get creative with them. If you don’t want to simply float balloons into your reception hall, then consider getting fashioned into a monogram featuring you and your partner’s initials.

Watch These Worthy Wedding Trends in 2019 | Clarence House

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 a 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.
