Most women hold up their wedding day as one of the happiest days of their lives. However, with decisions to make over budget, style, food and guests, plenty of blushing brides-to-be find the lead up to the ceremony a little overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together a list of five vogue wedding trends every bride needs to know to easily style a truly memorable 2019 wedding.
5 Wedding Trends Every 2019 Bride Needs to Know
- Non-traditional Engagement Rings
As soon as you announce your engagement, the first thing all your friends will be asking is what the ring looks like. Historically, couples have leaned toward tradition and selected diamonds and gold for their wedding and engagement rings. However, the past few years have seen new styles rise up that buck against conservative traditions. In 2019, our top pick for fashion-savvy brides are pink sapphire rings. This gorgeous style strays slightly from tradition while remaining timeless.
- Colored Wedding Dresses
Another way to inject your own style and flair into your wedding is to play with color. Although wedding dresses are traditionally white and ivory, we’ve seen an influx of new-age brides experimenting with pops of color. According to Vogue’s bridal week, pastels are still in style, with peach offering a gorgeous alternative to classic white. However, 2019 is pegged to be a year of even bolder wedding colors. If you’re a bride that’s not afraid to demand attention, vibrant reds and purples are set to stun.
- Statement Florals
Choosing the perfect arrangement of flowers for your bridal bouquet can be a challenge. Again, it comes down to whether you’d prefer to play it traditional or whether you’re willing to give your bouquet a trendy, modern twist. If you’re loving the 2019 lean toward bold wedding colors, be sure to put dahlias on your list. These big, vibrant blooms come in a range of gorgeous colors, from café au lait for conservative color schemes to romantic, punchy reds.
- Miniatures on the Menu
Let’s face it, the food is one of the most memorable parts of the wedding for your guests. A bountiful spread will facilitate good moods and hearty conversation, while a busy buffet can fall short of expectations. For a trendy option that everyone will love, ask your caterer about miniatures. From soup in shot glasses to bite-size sliders, miniatures put a fun and Instagram-worthy twist on your menu.
- Personalized Wedding Baskets
One of the biggest wedding trends of 2018 and 2019 is wedding baskets. Wedding baskets are essentially adult versions of a goody bag. If it’s in your budget, you can give your wedding a celebrity feel by providing each guest with a welcome box or basket. These personalized boxes generally include cute edible favors, candles, flowers and wedding information for your guests. By putting a disposable camera in each basket, you can encourage guests to become shutterbugs and help you create wedding memories.
Whether you’re a traditional bride or love to break all the rules, with so many fantastic new trends surfacing, 2019 is the perfect year to plan a wedding you’ll never forget.
