Today we’re talking wedding trends! Yearly trends are some of our favorite things to explore over here on United with Love. As we come up on summer weddings in the DMV, we wanted to share some thoughts on the 2019 trends for the upcoming “busy season” from some fantastic DC area wedding planners. Although… if you ask us, the “busy season” is all year round in the wild world of wedding planning! Keep reading for ideas on what you can include on your big day.
What 2019 wedding trends are you most excited for and how can couples include them in their wedding day?
While pink and gold are going no where, (certainly not in a more stylistically traditional city like DC,) I am seeing alternative metallics like copper and silver, and a move from blush to either peach or dusty rose. I am also seeing richer jewel tones making their way back into the color palettes as an accent option. Natural materials are still very popular: everything from marble and stone to wicker and bamboo. Fabrics look more natural; folks are generally staying away from shiny fabrics like satin. Couples and designers are also looking at ceilings and floors more than before, ensuring that weddings are customized from top to bottom; not just in the middle part of the venue. – Janice, Bellwether Events
One of my favorite wedding trends for 2019 is everything is leaning towards geometric designs. You can incorporate that with different style tables like rectangular, squares and rounds all together… A backdrop for your ceremony made with hexagons or triangles. Or an interesting food display with different shapes. – Katie, Elegance & Simplicity
We are all about the “guest experience” for 2019! This means interactive food stations, creative guest books such as a silhouette artist cuttings that double as favors, and neon light backdrops bringing back the era of photo-booths with Gif-booths! – Tabitha, Roberts & Co Events
I do love that the Pantone color of the year is Coral; a bold happy color and I’m hoping clients will use them throughout their decor and embrace this fresh color. – Vicky, Event Accomplished
Creative and fun dessert stations, either in addition or instead of wedding cake. They could be interactive like an ice cream sundae bar or tie-in where a couple grew up like a “Pittsburgh cookie table” I love that vibrant colors are still on trend. Couples can choose to include a more fluid color palette with more of a range and variety of colors that go together vs. a strict 1-3 color scheme. I love that earthy/natural elements will continue to be on trend. There is something so beautiful and fresh with incorporating greenery and botanicals in the wedding design. It works in outdoor weddings as well as in door wedding and bringing the “outside in.” Ratan accents are trendy and could be used as chargers or in furniture rentals. – Margo, Bright Occasions
