2019 Wedding Trends

1. Foliage, Nature and the Eco-friendly Revolution

Natural themes are a thing, and it is here to stay! Expect some natural elements brought inside like trees, foliage, re-pottable bouquets, and recycled paper. Boho themes like small huts and buntings are also big.

2. Ayo Technology

The best gadgets are being used to create the perfect wedding videos from aerial drones, live mapping and CGI effects. How about doing a video map on your bare wedding cake?

3. Colour Everywhere


Brides will take a break from the usual muted and neutral tones and instead explore on color. Expect to see a pop of color not just for the florals but even for the wedding gowns.

4. Royal Wedding-esque

The Duchess of Sussex will still be a big influence to 2019 brides. After all, simplicity is the best accessory! Brides will opt to copy her light wedding dress silhouette to bring focus to other features like the bouquet or makeup.

5. Sampler Plates

Thanks to the popularity of feasts, practical couples will prefer smaller plates of a much wider variety of food. This way, guests can experience more without really noticing the smaller portions.

6. Food Stations

It’s all about the customization. Everything from long grazing tables, pasta stations and even the standard chocolate fountain can help guests create have a wonderful experience from main course to dessert.

7. Souvenir Place Cards

Remember the time when place cards were literally just printed out? Not anymore! Guests take pride in having their names printed on place cards that can be attached to menus and souvenirs. Talk about IG-worthy!

8. Event Branding

This has been going on for a while, but couples will make it a point to have consistency in their event from invites, to table napkins, to thank you cards, and yes, even the hashtag. Consider having your own wedding monogram and have it present in all your printed materials.

9. Welcome Kits

The entourage can receive gifts from the couple to officially welcome them to the team. It can be as simple as a wedding starter pack that has bobby pins, mints and other essentials–or something as a grand as designer items with the wedding date inscribed.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.

We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.

We didn't have to worry about anything except getting ourselves ready on the day - she really helped make sure everything went off without a hitch
