Wedding trends change from year to year and season to season. Just like most fashion, it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what styles you should select to create the look or theme you’re going for. Here we’ve put together our ideas for the top 7 wedding trends for 2019. Send your bridesmaids down the aisle in gorgeous gowns, beautiful colors, and fashion-forward looks.
For the bride who wears her heart on her sleeve, there is one trend that looks gorgeous on all body types. Flutter sleeves are delicate and flowing, giving bridesmaids a subtly romantic accent and keeping eyes focused on the top of the dress. This emphasis makes flutter sleeves an excellent look for bridesmaids of all shapes and sizes and allows for a variety of dress lengths for mix-and-match options.
Tie the Knot
For the bride who loves things that feel both formal and classic, the effect that tied sleeves offer is a great way to show off your wedding colors on bridesmaids. For early spring weddings, long sleeves with ties at the wrist are cool-weather appropriate, while summer brides may have their bridesmaids showing off their shoulders with a dress that ties at the neck. Don’t be afraid to feature your bridesmaids in dresses or tops with tied sleeves in 2019. The wrap dress is also a very popular choice for bridesmaids in 2019 and looks beautiful on all body types, as well.
Bedazzle Your Bridesmaids
Jewel tones will be experiencing a surge in popularity in 2019, and it’s no wonder – the sumptuously saturated hues flatter almost every skin tone. PPG has already released a prediction for the “color that will define 2019,” and it’s a deep, rich teal called “Night Watch.” (https://people.com/home/ppg-2019-color-of-the-year/) Brides marrying early in 2019 can expect to lead the way with avant-garde gold and jewel-tone themed weddings. Spring and summer 2019 will feature the same colors as highlights that brighten up neutral base colors.
Not all dresses are created equal, and the continued trend of mix-and-match bridesmaids means you can custom build a theme for your wedding while allowing your girls to get comfortable. If the length of your bridesmaid dresses matters to you, there is an emerging trend for dresses in 2019: tea length dresses hit an elegant note in wedding wear. A “tea length” dress is simply a dress whose hem falls about three to four inches below the knee.
Also seen on the runway: many shades of glamorous grey. Grey dresses are dominating the bridal runways, mostly featured in the length as mentioned above. Combining two trending elements will look beautiful at any garden wedding full of colorful flowers with sparkling jewel toned accents. The great thing about going with grey is that there is an enormous variety of neutral, flattering tones that pair well with any wedding colors you may choose. Brighten up your wedding theme in the spring and summer by featuring grey prominently and accenting with fresh, bright colors.
Unconventional but undeniably chic, the hot 2019 look for bridesmaids is stunning separates. Send your bridesmaids down the aisle feeling their best while also being the most considerate bride. Separates make it easy for your girls to find the perfect fit for their figure and personal style. The possibilities are endless, given a color palette and an online retailer with a wide range of options. For instance, tulle skirts and very structured wrap tops suit some, while more softly feminine tops in lace with an a-line skirt are more comfortable for others. Consider matching separates for your flower girl, as well!
Rich in Rose Hues
One of the hottest trends for 2019 weddings features vibrant and voluptuous rose tones. Think the deep pink of real rubies, crushed burgundy grapes, and the marbled beauty of rose quartz when it comes to making a statement with your bridal party. These colors are showing up in velvet this year, adding another dimension to colorful and romantic wedding themes. When it comes to putting your bridesmaids in beautiful colors, consider the accents: complementary tones for rich, rosy velvets include deep mustard and gold, saturated greens and peacock blues.
These trends are starting now and will continue well into 2019 if what we’re seeing on the latest bridal runways from fashion week is any indication. Which of these trends feels right to include in your 2019 wedding?
