Weddings in 2019 will be all about creating an event to remember for both the newlyweds and their guests. Personalization is key! From bold bridal gowns to decadent desserts, there are so many ways to personalize your special day and create an unforgettable experience. Get inspired by these 5 new wedding trends we’ll be seeing in 2019.
Dresses with bows
Bows have long been a feature on wedding dresses and if you had any doubt they were here to stay, 2019’s bridal collections wiped that right out! In the past, bows were used more subtly in bridal design. This year, we’ll be seeing more oversized, statement bows – making for a perfectly ladylike wedding day look. Bows are a great way to show off the beauty and drape of a fabric and also add a point of distinction to your dress.
Mixed-metal engagement rings
This upcoming year we’ll be seeing more two-toned engagement rings than ever! While the traditional solitaire cut engagement ring will forever be a classic, their versatility allows for a modern twist as well. Mixed-metal bands are a great way to make a traditional solitaire ring more unique and modern. They represent a shift towards craftsmanship and uniqueness, rather than tradition. Many jewelers are now offering a variety of two-toned metal engagement ring styles. Online jewelers like, Blue Nile, make it easy to shop for this hot new trend by offering their selection of mixed-metal engagement rings online.
Greenery decorations are one of the biggest wedding trends for 2019. Rather than traditional flowers, many couples are incorporating greenery in the form of plants and herbs into their reception table decor. Modern vessels such as white ceramic, black ceramic and wood boxes are just a few of the modern-style containers being used in these organic style tablescapes. Long gone are the days of struggling to mingle with other guests due to high centerpieces being in the way. Many couples are now opting for lush low centerpieces, making it easier to see your table guests.
In past years, peak lapels have been viewed as more formal, making them less common. However, this upcoming year we will be seeing more peak lapels on grooms as they make more of a statement. With their edges that “peak” upward toward your face, peak lapels have the effect of making you look taller and slimmer. Double win! Burgundy tuxedos with black lapels will also be big this year.
There have been a lot of wedding food trends over the years and the latest craze is donut walls. As well as looking awesome, a donut wall makes a stunning and unique backdrop for your wedding cake or dessert table. Whether you cover a wall with hooks, which donuts can be hung from and picked up by your guests or spell out words such as “Love” with donuts, there are so many fun and creative ways to incorporate this trend into your special day. This is perfect for the DIY brides out there as it is relatively simple to craft yourself with a few hardware supplies. It can also be customized based on your wedding theme and colors!
