Can you believe that 2018 is almost over? It’s been an incredible year with some of our most beautiful weddings yet, but as 2019 approaches, I can’t help but think about what’s on the horizon. Here are some of the worthwhile wedding ideas that I’m looking forward to seeing pop up in destination and Colorado weddings next season!
Bright Florals: Muted palettes and pastels will always be a wedding classic. However, with Living Coral named the vibrant new Pantone Color of the Year, I predict we’ll be seeing lots of bright, beautiful shades, especially in florals. Wild, bold-hued bouquets really pack a punch and so do bright boutonnieres for the groom. I can’t wait to see more brides embrace their colorful sides!
Minimalist Gowns: Call it the Meghan Markle effect, but wedding gowns with clean lines and minimalist silhouettes are the height of bridal fashion. I love how a beautiful, simple gown can really make a mountain bride shine against a stunning natural backdrop. Another Meghan influence is statement veils. Edged with lace or covered with 3D embellishments like flowers, pearls or embroidery, a statement veil is a lovely way to show your personality, especially when paired with a classic gown.
Ethical Weddings: This one is very near and dear to my heart! It’s wonderful to see so many couples these days embracing eco-conscious thinking while planning their big day. Go plastic-free as much as possible, send invitations by email or on biodegradable paper, or donate leftovers from your meal to a local shelter – every kindness helps.
Illustrated Invitations: Hand-illustrated stationery designs are such a great way to make your wedding invitations stand out and make your guests feel special. An illustration of yourselves or your reception venue just makes it all just that much more sweet and personal.
Grazing Tables: Forget traditional canapés! We’re loving the idea of beautifully presented grazing tables (aka charcuterie stations), featuring cheese, meats, fruit, and so on.
Which wedding details and ideas are you looking forward to seeing more of in 2019?
