New Season of Trends - 2019

Happy 2019! We were so grateful for a fabulous 2018, but are beyond excited for what 2019 has to offer. Some of our favorite wedding design elements like layered textures and mixed metals are still going to come into play along with some gorgeous new trends that we will incorporate into our design plans for 2019!

Today’s weddings are all about creating an event to remember for both the couple and their guests. In short, personalization all the way. From "I do" to favors and everything in between, there are so many ways to personalize your celebration and create unforgettable experience.

Please come with us on this journey of the hottest trends for this year. Some of our standout favorites for tablescapes are layering of textures and deconstructed greenery draped gracefully down a table. Think velvets, muslin, raw silk, natural fibers not the basic cotton and poly linens for tables. Texture adds warmth and visual interest to any design. In 2018 we saw a lot of neutral color palettes. Neutrals are not going anywhere, but expect to see a lot more color used in flowers, linens furniture and attire.

Trend No. 1

Vibrant Color Palettes

We see the trend veering away from soft classic colors and heading in a more fun, pumped up direction. Design plans will be more focused on deep colors with a modern flair. Darker colors will accent the traditional pale hues to add more interest, and the rich tones can be pulled in through furniture and linens, while leaving the blooms light and airy. In terms of colors, we imagine working with emerald greens, smoky greys, and blues paired with blush, mauve, and, of course, Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral . As you can see in these images, the vibrant coral color can be mixed with other shades to create a stunning design. Expect to see this color palette used in florals, textiles, accent furniture and bridesmaids dresses.

Metallics aren’t going anywhere either. Expect to see them used in charger plates, place cards, and vases. Instead of the traditional gold or silver charger plate, look for them to have varied texture or color like the charcoal gray stoneware charger in this place setting.

Trend No. 2

Statement Floral and Greenery Structures

We are very excited about the use of statement floral structures throughout the ceremony and reception in 2019. Instead of formal, traditional wooden arbors, expect to see more unique arches and hanging structures. Some of our favorite designs incorporated our modern, industrial copper structure, copper arch and hanging floral chandeliers into design plans. These structures add an element of drama and richness with a unique architectural piece. These types of structures can be used in so many captivating ways. For example, in one of our designs, we suspended the copper structure to be the focal point above a dance floor. In another design we suspended it elegantly over a food buffet. We have used one of our floral and greenery chandeliers as a lovely and romantic back drop for an intimate wedding ceremony.

Trend No. 3

Deconstructed Greenery

In 2018, we designed many events that showcased structured greenery garlands. Not so much this year. The trend is to go for a more deconstructed, organic look . This can be combined with a metallic vase, candle or charger plate that is both welcoming and sophisticated. In one of our favorite designs we deigned the tables with a natural hand dyed muslin runner, deconstructed greens and a very modern oversized vase with a single Queen Protea for that wow factor. We added custom charger plates and vellum napkin wraps for a visually stunning tablescape.

Trend No. 4

Modern Blended with Traditional

Crafting a balance between using traditional and contemporary pieces with varying textures, is what makes a tablescape feel rich in design. It’s all about incorporating a balance between the two and making the event a true personalized experience. Today’s couples are all about blending their individual styles for their wedding day. Take a look at this table setting where we incorporated the traditional style of soft muted linens and vintage china with mixed metal vases.

Trend No. 5

Creating a Lounge Area at the Reception

Creating an intimate lounge at your reception gives guests a place to go when they want to relax, take a break from dancing, or get away from their tablemates! Depending on your venue, the lounge can be set up anywhere there's extra space, including an area near the main reception room, in a cozy room nearby, or even an outdoor space. Match the lounge area look and ambiance with the wedding's style. This should be a mini version of the wedding. If your centerpieces are voluminous arrangements of garden roses, order a smaller version for the lounge. Choose accessories and accent furniture that mimic the color palette of the wedding. Here are a couple of examples of how to incorporate a lounge area into your reception.

Trend No. 6

Large Dessert Displays

The newest twist on the traditional wedding cake is having a large dessert bar or display. This is an exciting way for you to treat your guests with other desserts besides cake. We took an ecclectic spin on the traditional dessert table by using this vintage ladder with shelves and added cake stands to create dimension. If you are wanting to keep the traditional wedding cake look just place it right next to the display just like we did in the the design featured below. By creating a unique dessert display it will be sure to be the hot spot of the night for your guests.

We are so excited that you joined us on this walk through the hottest trends for the upcoming wedding season! It is sure to be over flowing with magnificent greenery displays, innovative design style combinations and interactive spaces for your guests to enjoy your event to its fullest potential!
