With summer right around the corner, brides-to-be are gearing up for epic summer weddings. Each year, new trends come and go, but 2019’s trends seem to be timeless. Read below to see our predictions for the top summer wedding trends of this year.
Wedding Planning Fun: Minimalist Wedding
While some people dream of extravagant weddings, they’re not everyone’s cup of tea. This year is all about the simple things with a focus on small details. Expect venues, menus, cakes, and dresses to embrace uncomplicated elements and make a statement in their simplicity. From single flowers to clean and classic table settings, less is definitely more in 2019.
Dried Flower Bouquets
A different take on the traditional live bouquet, modern brides and grooms are embracing dried flower arrangements to serve as bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres. Dried flowers are a unique way to be different while keeping your wedding chic and classy. A Frosted Affair works with floral vendors that can make amazing dried floral bouquets.
Event Planning Ideas: Wedding Art
Couples in 2019 are embracing art as a fun twist on wedding entertainment for their nuptials. Caricatures, acrobats, and arts and crafts stations are a great way to engage your guests and ensure they’re having as much fun at your wedding as you are. They are also a great way to provide guests with a keepsake they can take home. We can help you conceptualize the perfect art experience for your guests while giving them something to remember your wedding by long after the party is over.
Wedding Altar Art
For couples who want a unique backdrop for their wedding vows, floral sculptures, and structured art pieces are a trend we expect to see this summer. Instead of traditional flowers at the altar, you can say your vows in front of a circular floral sculpture. If you are looking for something more low-key, consider creating the backdrop for your vows with candles and mirrors. From balloon sculptures to a wall of picture frames, to swaths of fabric, the wedding altar has gotten a makeover in 2019.
Event Planner Fashion: Copper Wedding Accents
Following in the footsteps of top fashion trends, weddings this summer will highlight copper elements, bringing a chic elegance to any ceremony. Copper accents on dresses and boutonnieres and features on centerpieces and table settings are a subtle way of deviating from the norm without going over the top.
Statement Table Linens
The table is where your guests will spend the majority of their time, so it’s important to get the elements just right. Couple beautiful table linens with exquisite flatware in unexpected metal colors like gold, silver, rose gold, and weathered zinc. It is a timeless way to elevate your table settings. Like the variety we are seeing in the wedding vow backdrops, the options this summer for setting your tables is nearly limitless. Monogrammed table runners, ombre colored napkins, crushed velvet tablecloths–it’s all possible and only limited by your creativity.
Wedding Cuisine: Interactive Food Stations
Move over donut and cookie bars, weddings in 2019 are all about playing with your food. Sushi tables, s’mores stations, and nacho bars are just a few examples of how wedding couples are choosing to have more interactive food stations this summer. It gives guests an opportunity to customize their cuisine and to have more fun. It will set your day apart from all of the other summer weddings, guaranteed.
