Scrolling through my Instagram feed I have noticed a shift in 2019 wedding trends.  In the past few years wedding style has drifted from boho chic to rustic romantic and vintage to ethereal.  This year, while wedding trends continue taking a unique path, I am noticing a greater movement toward artistry, authenticity, and celebrating the place and season of the celebration.  Here are my five favorite wedding trends on Instagram and the wedding artists, designers, and vendors I enjoy following the most!  




1. Out-of-the-box Florals

Recently I have seen an uptick in the use of non-traditional florals.  By using locally sourced materials not only do you add authenticity to your decor, but you are also making and environmentally conscious decisions to source locally.  Plus, this calls for some amazing applications of floral decor, including low greenery table runners and dramatic hanging florals.  Here are a few examples that I love:

2. Art Printed Materials

I have also noticed that printed wedding materials tend to be less formulaic, giving way to a greater sense of artistry and creativity.  My favorite company, Designs in Paper is a creative genius at using watercolor and illustrations to customize their printed materials; telling the story of the couple and their big day. Be sure to checkout their Facebook and Instagram to see all their beautiful new creations!

3. Universal Wedding Bands

A number of factors play into the rise of simple wedding bands.  First, we see many brides still opting for the double wedding band trend (think ring guards).  Not only does this trend give balance, symmetry, and an extra punch of sparkle to your wedding set, it also helps protect the engagement ring from getting bumped and banged.  Second, many brides are opting for non-traditional engagement rings including gemstone wedding rings and vintage style cocktail rings.  When you have a bold engagement ring, it's best not to add to much visual competition to the set.  A simple gold or diamond band will bring contrast to the set and ensure the engagement ring still 'pops.' Here are my favorite universal wedding bands in the collection:

4. Statement Cake

Step aside naked cakes, statement cakes have arrived!  These bold cake designs are opulent centerpieces that are almost too pretty to eat.  Some of my favorites are bold monochromatic towering designs and richly colored designs that catch the eye!  Do you have a favorite?  Comment below and let me know.

5. Defined Fashion

Today's wedding gowns are far from cookie cutter, they include bold and statuesque designs, regal gowns, and ethereal dresses adorned with fluid sheer overlays giving intricate lace underlays a soft fluid nature that calls to mind a romantic dream.  Keep an eye out for bold bows, splashes of color (both bold and subtle), geometric elements, and daring deep necklines.  Here are just a few from my favorite designs including dresses by Kelly FaetiniGemy MaaloufRivini by Rita Vinieris, and Carol Hannah.  If you're getting married, you need to be following these unique designers, they will give you endless inspiration to think bold and be true to your unique style!
