In 2018 we saw floral installations take the place of centerpieces on wedding tables. This trend will continue into 2019, but instead of over-the-top hanging installations, expect to see curated floral moments on tables instead.

2. Gesture Cakes

This year it’s all about variety as couples are getting unique with their desert choices. While a traditional cake is still at the forefront of popularity, couples are incorporating a few of their favorite desserts like cupcakes, pies and candy for guests to enjoy and having a small “gesture cake” to fulfill the traditional cake-cutting duties. 

3. Single Stem Bouquets

Step aside greenery, this year brides are opting for single stem bouquets that they can DIY. Not only is this a budget-friendly option, but it also plays into the trend towards simpler, minimalistic wedding décor elements.

4. Polka Dots

From subtle patterns on the gowns themselves to polka dot veils, you’ll for sure be seeing spots this wedding season.

5. Grazing Tables

2019 will bring one of our favorite wedding trends—grazing tables. Gone are black tie waiters and waitresses walking around with appetizers. Instead, cocktail hour will be filled with beautiful charcuterie stations for guests to graze at before the meal. Think tables of breads, meats, fruits, nuts, cheeses, and chocolates (what more could you ask for)!

6. Engagement Moons

Engagement moons have been gaining traction over the years as wedding costs have continued to rise. Couples are opting to take a pre-wedding holiday after their engagement instead of a honeymoon to cut down on costs and save for the wedding. This way they’ll be able to spend some quality time together celebrating their new engagement before the stress of wedding planning sets in.

7. Velvet Linens

Table linens are taking a cozy turn this year as velvet decor is being chosen as a key table element. Not only is this a perfect fit for fall and winter weddings, but it also helps to create a cozy, yet moody vibe for guests.
