Wedding Planners Share the Top Trends of 2019

Wedding trends are always in flux, and today's newlyweds are all about bucking tradition in favor of personalization. In other words, modern couples lend more credence to "something new" than "something old." As for "something blue," well, you'll have to read our bit about wedding color palettes (it's all below).

The wedding planners have spoken! These are now the biggest wedding trends of 2019:

Creative (And Liberal) Use of Flowers & Petals

2019 Wedding Flower TrendsFlowers have gone beyond bouquets and boutonnierre and boquets. Flower walls, flower chandeliers, flowery seating, and flower petal confetti are all the kinds of creative ideas couples are taking to their 2019 weddings.

Moody Palettes

Moody, edgy, romantic. Those are the magic words to describe the hot color palette trends for 2019. Think dense purples and burgandies, dramatic deep greens, and even gothic hues like grays and black!

 

Textures Galore

 

Along with deep colors, more and more couples are emphasizing texture as well. Whether it's a velvet suit jacket for the groom and groomsmen, flower petal textures on the light fixtures and wall decor, metallic speckles on the cake, ruffled cloth over the wedding arch, or even textured dresses, couples are loving the visual and kinesthetic charm that some texture brings to their big day. It also gives them even more ways to personalize the details.

Round Ceremony Setups

Ceremonies in the round are becoming more and more common as couples ditch the traditional and embrace the innovative. Another big trend is snaking aisles that wind through the seating, rather than the traditional straight line. It's a great way to make your ceremony more unique (read: memorable), and express your personality as a couple.

Oh, and arches at the altar? Those are going round too!

Unique, Creative Lighting

Wedding Lighting IdeasMulticolored, day-glo neon tubes hanging from a shape-shifting ceiling of LEDs. Floating paper lanters hovering above tranquil, sparkling pools of water. A mesh network of sparkling single-point white lights, simulating a starry night sky above the evening ceremony. Unique wedding lighting is taking the world by storm, and the ideas are as unlimited as your imagination.

Colored smoke streamers are a great way to add some "wow factor" to your wedding photos and engagement announcement posts...and couples are taking notice! This has been atrend all year, and while it won't last forever, it's definitely still hot. Where there's smoke, there's fire, and this trend still has plenty of wick left before it burns out.

Minimalist Makeup & Hair

Wedding Hair and Makeup TrendsWe spoke to wedding beauty experts, and all agree: minimalist approaches (by wedding standards) to hair and makeup are IN! "No-makeup" beauty looks and messy hair buns are popular, but that doesn't mean beauty is taking a backseat. More brides are prepping with diet changes and spa treatments starting in the weeks, or even months, leading up to their big day. Cutting out refined carbs and white sugar is a biggie, along with medspa treatments like botox to smooth lines, microneedling for bright and clear skin, and microblading for flawlessly-sculpted bridal brows.
