While some wedding elements tend to remain classic, each year there are some wedding trends that are on their way out and some that are on their way in. Not everyone agrees, but here are some of the expected wedding decor trends for 2019.
While pastels aren’t totally going away, a move toward richer, darker colors, like burgundy, emerald, turquoise, midnight blue, and rust is one of the wedding decor trends for 2019. Coral is the Pantone color of the year, but in general, pinks are being replaced with purples. When couples use pastels, they may pair them with black or other darker, unexpected hues. Celadon is expected to be popular. Metallics are trending away from rose gold and back toward copper, silver, chrome, and gold.
Trending Flowers, Greenery, and Other Plants
Although people still enjoy using greenery, arrangements with greenery alone are becoming less common. The succulent trend is starting to run its course. P
Trends in Linens
Couples are opting for more opulent linens, including velvet and other textured options. They’re also likely to be more eco-friendly and choose linens instead of disposable tablecloths. Avoid awkward napkin placements, like those where the napkin is under the plate, and skip the silk table runners.
Other Decor Trends
Some couples are choosing to have balloon walls. Statement lighting is also becoming very trendy. Think lanterns, neon installations, and candles of varying heights. Moroccan-inspired details are also becoming more popular, as are monograms as long as they aren’t overused. Lucite elements are being used more often including everything from the table numbers to the flatware, chargers, and name cards. Couples are moving away from blue and white chinoiserie, plexiglass, and out of season decor. However, patterned vases, mix and match place settings, statement place cards, and colorful flatware are increasing in popularity.
