Wedding trends that you need to know about


From year to year, it doesn’t seem as if wedding trends change by much, but when you get a photo album or your mom’s or your grandmother’s wedding, then you can definitely tell the difference between then and now. Of course, things have changed a lot since then, with weddings becoming more and more lavish by the year. Thankfully, trends are veering away from the super expensive, jewel-rich styles, and headed toward the more down-to-earth styles. 2019 is a great year to get creative.

Down-to-earth decor

What this means is that people are going for the overgrown garden look. It’s all about having green absolutely everywhere. You can have as much as you want, and it will look awesome. For some people, it’s about having a floral escape, and they can include all kinds of natural flowers with more earthy greens and whites. You can get creative with the time of year for your overgrown look too, for example, using more autumnal colors if you’re having a fall wedding. This can create the magical fairytale look you’ve always been dreaming of. Style this right, and you’ll be the talk of the year; It’s all about bringing nature to your big day.

Flowers you can wear

Forget the tiara and diamond earrings, it’s all about wearable flowers. Flowers are beautiful no matter what, and the great thing is, there are so many out there you can choose from that there is always a flower that suits you and your wedding. Also, florists are becoming more and more creative when it comes to what you can turn your flowers into, so whether you want a corsage, a headband, or even a necklace, you name it; you got it. They’re the perfect addition to your wedding dress and can add a spritz of color if that’s what you want.

Wild wedding cakes

Most of the time, the cake is pretty much the show-stopper, second to the bride of course. However, it’s no longer about how big your cake is, or how many tiers it has; it’s all about the design. Wedding cakes can be made into practically anything if that’s what you want, and almost any design created to your taste. Whether you love the idea of a marble effect or a giant Star Wars cake, the idea is to make it the most memorable cake of your life.

Keeping it unplugged

Sometimes people are so attached to their cell phones, it’s tough reminding people to put them down every once in a while. Good guests will respect your wishes if you choose to keep your ceremony private by requesting that your guests turn their mobile phones off for your big moment. After all, that’s what you’ve hired the photographer and videographer for, right?

Coral colors are the new thing

Practically every year has a preferred color scheme, and this year it’s coral’s turn. All this means is keeping your colors happy and cheerful, choosing pinky oranges and keeping things upbeat. These colors are especially perfect for a summer wedding.

Of course, your wedding is all about what you’ve always wanted for your big day, but there’s no doubt that these trends are here for a reason; because they’re undeniably impressive. They’re also because someone might have tried something new and it’s taken off because it works so well and everyone wants to try it for themselves.
