Trends for 2019 al­ready tak­ing shape

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - WEDDING GUIDE -

WITH 2019 fast ap­proach­ing, there are plenty of trends making their pres­ence felt in the wed­ding in­dus­try.

One of these is per­son­alised gift boxes or bags, which are de­signed to spoil each guest and can con­tain items like can­dles, wine, gourmet snacks and more. These are es­pe­cially great for guests tak­ing part in desti­na­tion wed­dings and can also in­clude prac­ti­cal items such as wed­ding itin­er­ar­ies/sched­ules, sun­screen, mints and more.

Rus­tic and DIY style wed­dings aren’t go­ing any­where, with stylised green­ery in dec­o­ra­tions and feathers as a de­sign el­e­ment also hav­ing a mo­ment.

Bold colours, in­clud­ing shades of pur­ple and blue, are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar as dec­o­ra­tive themes or even as part of the colours worn by the bride, groom and wed­ding party.

Many brides are branch­ing out from the clas­sic white gown to dresses in any num­ber of shades, from muted pas­tels to strong colours.

Other brides are tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the re­cent royal wed­ding and wear­ing tiaras at their wed­ding, or wear­ing dresses in­spired by the style of Meghan Markle.

Some brides are even em­brac­ing pantsuits and jump­suits to ex­press their per­sonal style.

Brides and grooms who want to cut loose at their re­cep­tions are em­brac­ing the idea of sub­tle out­fit changes dur­ing the day so that they can more com­fort- ably dance, from chang­ing shoes to the bride wear­ing a shorter or less con­fin­ing dress.

When it comes to wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy and videog­ra­phy, drones are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar as a way to cap­ture a new per­spec­tive of your big day.

Grooms­men are be­ing en­cour­aged to dis­play more of their per­son­al­ity, from mix and match suits to pops of colours and pat­terns in their ac­ces­sories.

While some en­joy shar­ing their big day with so­cial me­dia, and the pop­u­lar­ity of wed­ding hash­tags con­tin­ues to be pop­u­lar, many cou­ples are opt­ing for un­plugged cer­e­monies to keep all in­volved fo­cused on the mo­ment.

When it comes to re­cep­tions, fun touches such as un­usual or state­ment place cards, DIY food sta­tions and hang­ing cen­tre­pieces are among the items grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity.
