Having a unique, magical wedding is almost every couple’s dream. Gone are the days where weddings have to follow strict traditions and rules—today’s wedding is more fun and customizable than ever. From outdoor weddings to colorful, vibrant wedding décor, 2019 is sure to be a landmark year when it comes to wedding themes.
Here are several different wedding themes and wedding décor to look out for in 2019
These types of weddings allow the couple to make nature part of their big day, and they can also utilize naturally growing flowers and plants as part of their decorations. An outdoor celebration can make for stunning photographs.
Many couples are choosing to have their entire celebration outdoors—from the welcoming toast to the after-party.
But, even in the nicest of climates, weather can be unpredictable. If you choose to have an outdoor wedding, make sure there’s a backup plan in case of inclement weather.
In terms of 2019 wedding destinations, top wedding planners see that Portugal and Spain are on the rise.
Unique wedding décor and colors
Move over, pastels! Dark, shocking color palettes are set to be on-trend in 2019. Think dark velveteen textures and dark jewel tones, like ruby red and emerald green.
These color choices give the bride, groom, and wedding party a perfect opportunity to brighten themselves up to stand out among the crowd.
Ditching flowers in favor of alternative arrangements
More and more couples are opting for arrangements including different plants and grasses, like wheat for example, instead of an all-floral setup.
This approach might cost the couple less money, and it involves less upkeep! Plus, it allows the couple to integrate more neutral colors into their theme.
Completely untraditional bouquets are also on-trend for 2019. Already, we’ve seen doughnut bouquets and paper flower bouquets. The sky’s the limit.
An emphasis on creative food and drink
Less and less often, couples are leaving the food and drink options up to the venue. Many couples are now completely customizing their offerings, with some couples even creating unique cocktails specifically for the wedding!
From “cake” towers made of cheese wheels to organic food offerings to world-class cocktail hour snacks, brides and grooms-to-be are taking advantage of the seemingly limitless food options available for today’s wedding.
Playful dessert stations, vegetarian and vegan-friendly substitutions, and family-style entrees are all predicted to be on-trend in 2019.
After your dream wedding ideas are in place, it can be tough to find the perfect venue to execute your ideal plan.
