The end of another year is almost upon us and what better way to celebrate that than with a wedding trends update for 2019! These forward-thinking prediction offers ideas and inspiration for brides-to-be and will help in making your wedding up-to-date. With that being said, it’s time to look at the hottest trends for the upcoming year. Let’s go!

Minimalist Mood

The effect of the Sussexes’ wedding this year has given all of us an indication of what’s to come – Meghan being the next royal to take the fashion world by storm. All eyes were on the Duchess’ gown when she walked down the aisle in May with a custom-made Givenchy dress. It is expected that famous wedding gown designers will follow suit of the minimalist gown trend for 2019.

Keepin’ it Shiny

Metallics have been all over the runway for the past seasons. From athleisure, evening gowns to makeup and accessories. But for brides, coppers and bronzes are your top picks. Either colour will bring a certain warmth to the atmosphere and visually change the look of the whole venue.

The Rise of Video Mapping

Have you ever seen the viral videos of cakes having projections on them? Well, technology has certainly gone a long way because this phenomenon is making its “grand entrance” into the wedding cake industry. The feature supposedly makes any cake come to life with its 3D video projections. How cool does that sound?

Go Green

The idea of bringing the outdoors IN with a lot of greenery will replace the use of flowers for main setups. An organic background can uplift and entertain the guests before the start of the ceremony and the banquet.

Bring in the Colours

x Bright & Bold Wedding Cake x I am thrilled to share with you yesterday's wedding cake, celebrating Michelle & Anthony's ceremony at the beautiful Crathorne Hall Hotel. The 9" tall base tier is two cakes double-barrelled, with flavours of lemon, and vanilla & black cherry. The top tier is three layers of rich chocolate cake, sandwiched with very chocolatey buttercream and covered in dark chocolate ganache. The vibrant brush strokes were hand-painted with Rainbow Dust Colours. I loved making this striking cake 😍 – – – – #red #redwedding #redweddingcake #cake #weddings #weddingcake #brushstrokes #cakeart #cakeartist #sugarartist #sugarchic_cakes #sugarchic #hartlepoolcakes #teessidecakes #northeastwedding #northeastbride #rainbowdust #rainbowdustcolours #handpainted #cakesofinstagram #cakesofinsta #cakesofig #amazingcakes #massaticino #ilovemassaticino #massaticinolovers #dreamweddings #crathornehallhotel #instabride

Infuse some colour into your big day. By adding a pop of colour, you and your partner can inject some personality and quirk into your wedding theme. It can help guests easily distinguish your personality and at the same time ring in a more modern vibe.

It Takes Two to Tango

In 2019, brides will begin to look far and beyond traditional, floor-length wedding dresses. Dancing in an intricately-designed gown is less than practical to do that’s why modern brides are opting for not just one but two dresses for the occasion. This decision can be quite difficult for brides on a budget but note that reception dress is not as grand as the dress used in the main ceremony.

Trends are certainly not for everyone, that is why staying true to one’s vision is of the highest priority. These predictions serve as ideas and suggestions in preparation for one’s big day. Whatever theme, dress, or decoration you choose make sure to bask at the moment and just enjoy the best day of your life.
