The most on-trend and unique wedding ideas for 2019 from Bellissima Weddings
Who wants some wedding ideas for 2019?
Working in weddings everyday & for many years has meant that we have seen it all! From the biggest and silliest wedding dresses to the craziest dances and most outrageous wedding cars, but we are still always hungry for new wedding ideas! 2019 is set to be an amazing year for weddings with brides now having an unparalleled access to information and ideas via the internet combined with a modern approach to creating a big day that is stylish, not brash and truly reflective of yourselves as a couple. 2018 saw the royal weddings of both Meghan Markle & Princess Eugenie. Both of these brides reflected this shift in taste and a movement towards the understated (as understated as royal wedding can be!?) and unique.
In order to further guide you on your bridal journey we have put together our favourite wedding ideas for 2019 below – things that we believe will help create a wedding day look and feel that you will cherish forever.
Clean designs are still going strong and thanks to the Duchess of Sussex’s dress we see this trend continuing. Unique floral and greenery installations are really on-trend and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, the more natural and organic the better!
PASTELS AND BALLOONS
Highlights of pastel colours such as coral, teal, turquoise and blush pinks will pop amongst a background of natural greenery. Oversized balloons dot their way around the venue with glitter, confetti and all things pretty.
When it comes to decor options rose gold and blush are definitely on their way out. Bright and rich colours are what we are seeing for 2019. You can incorporate these colours in all aspects of your wedding decor from table settings, candles, linens and florals. Turquoise is definitely one of the key colours for 2019.
Looking forward into 2019, it is clear that size really does matter! Less is most definitely more as couples look to optimise their wedding budget by becoming increasingly discerning in regard to the length of their guest list, choosing only to invite those closest to them in favour of offering a better quality of experience.
No longer are brides and grooms choosing suppliers to work on their weddings but they are now choosing to work with planners who create a journey and experience for all the guests to enjoy. This can be from scenting invitations to immersive decoration creating a wedding experience that stays with your guests for long after the wedding day itself.
We all know that a wedding isn’t a wedding without flowers. Many couples are now opting for air balloon arc displays with minimal flowers as opposed to a full floral one. The wedding world is big on balloons right now.
WEDDING “HONEY FUNDS”
Top 2019 wedding trends is the “honey fund” where guests can send money over to an account that they can then use for whatever they like, rather than a wishing well or postbox at the wedding.
THE MEGHAN EFFECT
It’s totally stating the obvious, but it has to be said. The Meghan Markle effect is going to be seen in weddings in 2019. Not just in pared back, super simple and elegant dresses; but also in detailed veils. We can see the appeal for lots of brides in splashing out on a veil with amazing details that truly delight. Dress styles from Mori Lee or Enzoani would make good choices.
ONE GOWN OR TWO…OR MAYBE THREE?
Again, we have to thank the Meghan Markle but we will certainly see more and more brides and also grooms looking to have a number of outfit changes with a little more focus on comfort come the evening, allowing them to hit the dance-floor in style as well as comfort. We predict we will see more elegant jumpsuits or simple, classic designs of gowns come the evening reception.
And there it is. Our top wedding ideas for 2019. We hope that was inspirational for you and you are now desperately pinning on your wedding Pinterest board or chopping out chunks of the latest Brides magazine for your mood-board.
Lots of love
