In the world of weddings, professionals are well into the new year. Dresses are being ordered in the latest fashions, and wedding planners are in full swing creating the perfect event. In this article, we will show you what you can expect in 2019.
Wedding gowns and accessories
Brides are steering away from the extremely revealing, barely-there gowns of last year. Instead, they are opting for classic charm. Traditional gowns with plenty of volume or sleek, form-fitting gowns are on the rise.
More brides are going with soft ivory wedding dress instead of bright white. Those who are selecting bright white are going all the way with diamond white.
Brides are opting for the bridal cape instead of a traditional train. The cape has evolved into a beautiful gown accessory that is hung from the next or shoulders and cascades down as far as the bride desires.
You will see a lot of mock necklines. The illusion that the lace top provides allows a bride to wear a sweetheart neckline or deep backs. The look is undeniably sexy while displaying charm and gracefulness. Designers are putting a twist to the mock neckline by making the lace top a halter style. This draws attention to the face and gives the illusion of a sexy gown.
Long sleeves are popular this year. The newest change in sleeves are the bell shaped sleeve. The chic sleeve is enhanced with extra fabric above the wrists.
The royal wedding has influenced many brides to skip the veil and wear a beautiful tiara instead. Bridesmaids are wearing a smaller version of the sparkling crown or a jeweled hair comb.
Pink has always been the “go to” color for weddings. But, this year pink is being replaced with hues of purple. Lavender is perfect for pastels and shades that vary all the way to royal purple are trending.
Purple comes in so many colors that it is sometimes hard to match. This is the reason you will see bridesmaids in matching dresses. If they want to create a little individuality, they can choose different shoes.
Burgundy, wine, and deep red are also hot this year.
Metallic fabrics have been hot for the past two seasons. The metallic color for 2019 is rust. Gold and silver made a big fashion statement in 2018. If rust is a bit too dark for you and you like the metallic fabric, rose gold is your best choice. Rose gold is still trending in wedding fashion.
The floral vines that grace archways and above tables are being replaced with lovely sculptures made of flowers. They are very popular centerpieces and are bringing back the formal reception.
Brides are opting for smaller and much more expensive bouquets. They are letting go of the large amount of greenery they were carrying down the aisle. Instead, they are carrying roses, orchids, or lily’s. The arrangements of last year featured fully bloomed flowers. Rose buds or partially opened flowers are the look for this year.
The selection of venues this year is not so much about a wedding theme. Rustic barns, vineyards, and parks were very popular last year. Of course, beaches are always at the top of the list for weddings. You will find the theme wedding this year is romance. Romance regardless of where you find it. A couple may choose a lovely church or chapel for their ceremony. The romantic setting of generations of couples before you, pledging their love to each other on this very spot.
They may find a gazebo in a beautiful park romantic, or a beautiful lake. Romance is the theme and romance can only be defined by the bride and groom.
Getting married in 2019 is going to be an experience you will always cherish. Your wedding will be as romantic and unique as you are. What a wonderful way to begin the next chapter of your life. Also, be prepared for the honeymoon right after the wedding day – take care of all your wishes you’ve made since you were child and plan an amazing love trip with your husband/wife in advance!
