2019 Wedding Trends You Should Know

Planning your Priest Lake wedding for 2019?  As we look ahead to the new year, these are our favorite 2019 wedding trends we’re loving for making your special day unforgettable.

Back to the basics

For those who like to keep it simple, 2019 is the year for you! 2019 ushers in the return of the classic wedding dress, with simple designs and elegant styles. For this style, tailoring is key and finding the right silhouette for your body. Clean lines with no embellishments are also key to achieving this look.

Eco-conscious and ethical weddings

Just as eco-tourism is trending now so it would make sense brides and grooms are seeking eco-conscious weddings. From foam-free flower installations to wedding cakes made with locally sourced ingredients, the ways in which you can host an eco-friendly wedding are increasing.

Personalized place settings

While personalization in general is a big trend in 2019, this extra personal touch has seen the most gain amongst wedding trends. If you are planning a smaller wedding, a personalized place setting is a nice touch your guests will appreciate.

Coral colors

Recently Pantone announced that “Living Coral” is the newest color of the year for 2019. This brightly, yet subtle tone is a perfect detail of color to your wedding color pallet. Ideal for a spring or summer wedding, this color will surely brighten up your day.

Statement wedding cakes

Mini dessert displays and cupcake tiers dominated weddings in 2018 but next year anticipate a rise in the statement wedding cakes. It’s a fun way to be bold and daring but in a small way. So, don’t be afraid to make a statement with your wedding cake.


Non-traditional floral components

Outside of the floral arrangements brides and grooms are looking for more natural decorative displays to complete their wedding day. Using grasses such as pampas grass and wheat offer a natural look while also creating a romantic yet bohemian look and feel.

Embrace the outdoors

Enjoy the outdoors at Priest Lake like no one else can.  With Chimney Rock as your backdrop, and towering pine trees surrounding you and your guests, it only takes a little decoration to designate your aisle.  Let mother nature show off her greenery.  You can accent her beauty with a few florals.  Winter weddings are a great way to gather your friends and family.  A snowy backdrop will make your wedding colors pop.
