After two Royal Weddings in 2018, there's much anticipation for what 2019 will bring as far as Trends. For Weddings, these are important, but are derived from what's on the runway and popular in interiors. So, without further ado, here's what we're expecting for the 2019 Wedding Season...
Biophilia describes the emphasis on the relationship between humankind and nature and making products using natural materials. Sustainable handmade pieces will be big in Wedding furniture this year, especially as they make a day bespoke to you. Greenery has been a trend for a while now in Weddings, but in 2019, florists are saying goodbye to Oasis for floral arrangements and hello to biodegradable alternatives.
Feminine tones, of blush and dusty pink have dominated Spring/Summer Weddings for years. However, this year alongside this we're adding in bronze accents and mixed metals, but in moderation. Earthy 'honey' tones, or varying hues of beige dominated the Spring/Summer runways this year, Burberry in particular, and are the perfect fit for the bohemian bride.
Rich jewel tones and colour blocking are back! For the past few years it's been all white everything, but colour is making a comeback. Marigold yellow is a big SS19 trend, perfect if our Saffron interior is your favourite. Memphis (primary colours and graphic shapes) was a big runway theme this year, with a balance of 90% white and 10% colour, particularly at Louis Vuitton, with the use of fresh bold colour. For weddings, this can be translated perfectly, as the basis is often white, but by adding statement colourful lighting, the feel can be transformed.
Passamenterie is a trend we can definitely get behind! It's modern interpretations of trims, bullion fringe and tie backs. A big way this has been presented is through fringe, as seen at Longchamp, Tom Ford and Gucci. The easiest way to incorporate this for weddings is with tie backs from our Arabian range to accent your draping, or even fringe-edged linings to frame the whole space.
Traditional Weddings will be making a comeback this year, with the return of simplicity and a classical theme to the day. The fear for many brides being that an overly modern wedding won't age well. Following the 'Meghan effect, many brides are opting for tailoring and clean lines when it comes to their dress. Additionally, we'll likely see an insurgence of Lace, as seen below as an add-on feature to our uncomplicated Oyster Pearl Tent, after it dominated the runways of Erdem, Christopher Kane and Victoria Beckham this past fashion week.
Bring on the 2019 Wedding season!
