Getting Married in 2019? Consider These Top Wedding Trend Predictions
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start thinking about wedding planning for 2019 (actually long past for some) — but wedding season is right around the corner! And there are so many fun 2019 wedding trends that we are anticipating.
The 2019 wedding is all about being casual, intimate, and ethical, with a big focus on the experience rather than glitz and glamour. So what do I foresee for 2019 wedding trends?
Here are our top predictions!
Ethical Celebrations Are In for 2019 Wedding Trends
Even weddings are getting “woke”. If you’re planning your wedding in 2019, you might want to embrace the conscious green wedding trend that’s fast emerging. All-natural, vegan/vegetarian, and eco-friendly weddings are becoming more and more normal. You may want to think about sustainable sourcing from local vendors (we’re full of them here in Florida) and making sure there are plenty of “woke” options for you and your guests.
Low-Key Weddings Are Making Lives Easier
I’ve also been noticing a lean toward low-key, intimate wedding plans — and 2019 may just be the year of the casual affair. Couples want to make the day special by spending time with the people closest to them, rather than spending all of their money on gimmicks and decoration. Take, for instance, potluck weddings, which have both the eco-angle and the low-key vibe. But a low-key wedding can look however you want it to. Think small, tasteful, intimate — whether at home in your backyard or as a destination wedding somewhere warm and sunny, like right here in Florida or the Caribbean.
The Markle Effect Is Here To Stay
The royal wedding may be over, but the Markle effect is very much still here. The Duchess of Sussex is anticipated to be one of the biggest wedding inspirations for 2019. Next year’s bridal looks will be all about class and simplicity, with one or two bold details. It might be a long veil like Meghan, a fun shoe, or a bright pop of color — but it should be classy and romantic all the way.
Mixed Gender Wedding Parties Are Growing In Popularity
I’m so pleased to see that mixed-gender wedding parties seem to be here to say. In fact, if anything they’re getting more popular. More and more, couples are choosing to include their closest friends and family in the most important day of their lives — no matter what their gender. So have fun with the styling and go wild with the people you care about most.
Practical Ensembles Are Finally Here
It’s. About. Time. Expect the hottest wedding dresses of 2019 to come with pockets — yes, pockets — and some brides will be ditching the dress altogether in favor of a pantsuit or jumpsuit. Plus, many brides are opting for specially designed wedding sneakers. Being comfortable is so important — which is why so many brides dance the night away barefoot during gorgeous beach weddings down here. But it’s not just for the brides — expect to see more grooms opting for comfortable footwear in 2019. They want to dance too, you know!
Grooms Are Starting To Branch Out
Beyond their footwear, men are starting to have more and more fun with their wedding ensembles and showing just as much personality as the brides get to. One of the 2019 trends for grooms is sure to be floral suits, which are a lot of fun while keeping the wedding feel, while others are going wild with denim. Brides are also bucking tradition, so don’t be surprised if you see more colored wedding dresses for 2019, especially in warmer climates like ours.
The 2019 wedding season is shaping up to be a great one, with some of the hottest and most fun wedding trends we’ve seen in awhile. It’s great seeing couples embrace more low-key, intimate experiences with some classic romantic touches still making an appearance. However, a trend that will never subside or be “too trendy” is that of a memorable experience!
