2019 Wedding Trends – Everything you Need to Know

Every year comes with new wedding and bridal trends. If you are planning a wedding for next year we’ve compiled a list of all the 2019 wedding trends to help get the planning process started.


This year, couples are moving away from pale colours and opting for reds, pinks, and oranges. Bolder colours that stand out are going to have their moment in 2019. Colourful weddings are warmer and more vibrant than all-white weddings.


Wedding decorations are following in the footsteps of everything else nowadays and are going eco-friendly. You can expect the substitution of paper and glass over plastic wherever possible. There’s usually a lot of waste left over after weddings, so why not do your little bit for the environment and switch up plastic straws for paper straws and plastic cups to glasses.


One of our favourite 2019 wedding trends is wedding celebrants (not that we’re biased). Couples are opting for a more personal and memorable wedding ceremony, so are using wedding celebrants instead of getting married in the church. This trend has been building momentum for the last few years but 2019 is set to be the most popular year for wedding celebrants yet.

Hair and Makeup

To match the favourite colour schemes, a bold lip is really on trend for 2019. A classic shade of red will be particularly popular with 2019 brides. Silver eyeshadow has also covered the bridal runways for 2019 wedding looks.

In the hair department, tendrils are making a comeback. The return of this look is probably down to Meghan Markle’s bridal look. Beachy waves with flowers in your hair will also be really popular with 2019 brides.
