When it comes to planning a wedding, you should stick to things the two of you love most. Every year new (and often re-visited) trends pop up in the wedding industry. Even though all of the magazines and popular sites are telling you what is "in" at the moment, the ideas they are offering may not be your cup of tea.
That's perfectly okay! In the opinion of WhereBridesGo.com, wedding trends are not a rule you must go by but rather a wonderful source of inspiration to spark your own creative wedding ideas! Here are a few of the latest wedding trends we're expecting to see a lot of in 2019. Some you will love, others you may not. Use the ideas that make you smile and let your own personal creativity take off from there.
Each year everyone looks toward Pantone to declare a Color of the Year, and for 2019, the vibrant shade of "Living Coral" is the winner. They describe this color as "sociable and spirited" which sounds like a wonderful vibe to create at a wedding. This lovely color pairs nicely with shades of teal, aqua, yellow, navy blue, raspberry, gold, and mint green, to name a few.
Elegant dots are popping up in bridal fashion recently, and these can easily be carried over to your wedding decor. This can be a terrific way to add a playful touch of whimsy to your wedding while also creating a flirty yet romantic vibe.
Couples are choosing to feature more pictures and illustrations on their wedding stationery, from invitations to menus to programs and more. It's a great way to make these items unique. You'll find some excellent DIY wedding invitation kits at WhereBridesGo.com that allow you to add your favorite illustrations and photos.
Bring the Outdoors In
This trend has been popular for a while and doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. It makes sense because the natural beauty found outdoors offers an incredible ambiance for a wedding. If you aren't able to have your ceremony and reception outside, bring its beauty inside with you! Use lots of greenery and lush flowers and foliage. Add a few pops of metallic accents here and there to give this organic look a bit of glam.
Instead of tall, extravagant centerpieces, this year couples are more often choosing to keep the table decorations low enough for guests to talk over rather than under. Rectangular banquet tables are also gaining popularity over round tables and this look works beautifully with those.
Most couples are leaning toward wedding decorations that can easily have a personalized spin added to them. Monograms are very popular and they are the perfect way to add your "stamp" as the new Mr. & Mrs. These 3 simple letters add elegance to lots of items. We carry many wedding cake tops that feature a variety of monogram styles. Most of the items at WhereBridesGo.com can be personalized for free when you order and many of those allow you to choose between monograms, names, dates, and sayings.
Signs at weddings have been used for many years now, but the personalization trend is having a heavy influence on these too. Couples are getting incredibly creative with seating chart displays. An easy way to personalize your signs is to use chalkboards or you can easily order many different styles of pre-made personalized signs from our online wedding store.
We hope that the wedding ideas featured in today's blog have sparked some type of magical creativity inside of you that has all kinds of beautiful possibilities for your ceremony and reception coming to life.
