It’s official, our favorite new wedding trends have arrived. And from the looks of it, couples are stepping away from traditional trends and opting for more individualized options. From rose gold engagement rings to stand out suits, these five fresh ideas are taking over weddings this year.
Pantone announced ‘Living Coral’ as its color of 2019. This is a sunny, bright, pink/orange shade. Its cheery tone makes it perfect for weddings, especially sunny summer weddings. Expect to see coral incorporated into many weddings this year via flowers, bridesmaid dresses, cakes, and overall color schemes. If you’re planning a 2019 wedding, here are some great ways to incorporate Living Coral into your wedding theme.
Rose gold engagement rings
Rose gold jewelry has been on the rise over the years. It’s a great option for on-trend brides because it’s more durable than yellow or white gold and surprisingly more affordable. Not to mention, rose gold complements all skin tones. Its vintage appeal gives off romantic vibes and pairs perfectly with traditional white diamonds or colored gemstones such as morganite. This makes it a timeless, but treny option for brides. Many jewelers, including online jeweler, Blue Nile, offer rose gold engagement rings in modern and classic styles. This makes it easy to shop this metal of the moment and find your perfect style.
Lavish wedding cakes
We’ve seen a lot of extraordinary wedding cakes over the years, but in 2019 we’re expecting to see even more impressive ones. The likely reason being the influence of 2018’s royal weddings on couples to make more luxurious choices. Regal piping, personalized monograms, and metallic accents will all be popular options for cake decor this year. Look for a variety of textures on wedding cakes as well including rippled icing, gorgeous sugar flowers, and other decorative finishes. Wedding cakes this year are all about letting your imagination soar!
Stand out suits
In recent years, we’ve seen many brides allow their bridesmaids to stand out through mismatched bridesmaid dresses. This year, we’ll see the groom and his groomsmen doing the same. Rather than wearing the same exact suit, look for a selection of shades and styles on the altar this year with the groom wearing the same cloth as his groomsmen but with a slightly different style and detailing. This creates a strong and cohesive look, but also allows the groom to stand out.
Simple wedding dresses
Minimalists rejoice because this year we’ll see the return of classic and simple wedding dress styles. With Meghan Markle as the poster girl for this trend, we’ll see many brides wearing royal wedding inspired dresses this year. To achieve this look, tailoring is key. It’s also important to find the proper silhouette to suit your shape. Check out these classic wedding dresses to help nail your modern princess bride look.
