Top Wedding Trends for 2019
Each year brings along several new wedding trends, and each year, some are amazed while others don’t make too much fuss about it. This time is no different, but the variety of trends has certainly reached its highest point. From creative non-traditional venues to exceptional cake choices and experiential dining, you’ll certainly be in for a treat and opt for at least one of the following trends for your big day.
Richer colour palettes
While we’ve had the opportunity to see the delicate pastel shades throughout the previous couple of years, the future period will be marked by richer and deeper tones. Forget about the light and airy feel and get ready for a more dramatic and almost edgy vibe that richer colours and deeper textures will introduce. Expect burgundy for floral arrangements with a touch of black accents. Due to the variety of colour and textures, artificial flower arrangements continue to increase in popularity. Silver and chrome will join the recently popular trend of gold and copper as well and will continue to make an appearance in wedding bouquets.
Signature eats and experiential dining
Weddings have been accompanied by signature cocktails for years, but the following year will switch this tradition up a little. Guests can now have an option to choose from his or hers entrée option, or even name passed hors d’oeuvres. If you’d like to turn it up a notch, think about having “experienced” cuisine at your wedding, where you can place a hanging installation of nibbles, open-fire cooking or a chef plating something in real time.
Making an entrance
Riding in style will most likely be your priority, which is why you need to start thinking about some classy vehicles that’ll drive you to your venue. If you still haven’t decided who to turn to, Queen Street Wedding & Car Hire services will definitely be the best choice, as they offer a fleet of top-notch cars like Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini and Mercedes, but many others as well. Not only can you arrive in a lavish vehicle to your big day, but also drive to the airport for your honeymoon right after the reception, and truly experience your wedding day in style.
Treating guests to extras
The experience has become a much more relevant segment of the wedding, rather than favours. That’s why the following year will be all about treating the guests to extras and offering them an entertaining experience. A passed after-dinner treat, a lipstick touch-up bar, a specialty sip station, or even a fun late-night cover band are more likely to be the couples’ choice of treating the guests, unlike offering them wedding favours they can take home. However, if you’re planning a destination wedding, thoughtful welcome bags can still be a nice way to let your guests know you’re very pleased and happy they’ll be attending the wedding.
From retail registry to cash
While some couples are still opting for registering their gifts at their favourite retail store, the majority is leaning towards cash. Whether they have a fund for their dream vacation, or they need to refurnish their home and the money is of great importance, they decide to pass up on the retail registry and go straight for the money. Also, fundraising for charity has been a noble way to celebrate your wedding and help others as well. So, if you’d like to help someone too, you can ask all the guests to donate the money to a charity of your choice and make you and others happy.
Wedding trends come and go, but they always manage to take our breath away. If you’ve been wondering what your wedding might look like, think about opting for some of the above trends and make your big day truly exceptional, and a wonderful experience for both you and the entire wedding party.
