We know how overwhelming it can be when you start planning your wedding. Whether you’ve just got engaged or are nearly ready to tie the knot, we’ve found the top 2019 wedding trends to be aware of for your special day…
Fuss free wedding dresses
This year, it’s all about minimal design and maximum impact when it comes to wedding dresses. Following Meghan Markle’s simple and elegant bateau-necked ceremony gown, there’s been a steady rise in the demand for classic tailored wedding dresses. The key is finding one that’s the perfect fit for your shape.
From biodegradable confetti to locally sourced food and cake ingredients, there’s a big focus on throwing an ethical and sustainable wedding for 2019. Brides not only want to look great, but feel great about their big day.
Choosing not to have your special day on a weekend can help keep costs low if you’re wedding planning on a budget. Opting for a midweek wedding, could allow you to reach a wide variety of venues who are likely to have more availability during the week. It’s also worth looking at late availability weddings to see what upcoming dates are free and at what discounted price. Our midweek weddings (Mon-Thurs) at Coombe Abbey Hotel start from just £70 per head.
Quirky wedding favours
Gone are the days of sugared almonds for wedding favours. More couples are realising the fun you can have with getting creative when it comes to saying thank you to your guests. What quirky ideas can you think of that are personal to you and your partner? If you love drawing, how about personalised pencils and notebooks? Or if you’re both lovers of gin, perhaps mini personalised bottles?
Unique venue for photos
Nobody wants to feel their wedding is just another on a conveyor belt. This trend for 2019 is all about finding a hidden gem to hold your wedding. Discovering a wedding venue that offers character, personality and a tailored service that can’t be found anywhere else. At Coombe Abbey, our hotel sits in 500 acres of beautiful parkland – perfect for those wedding photos – and offers unique rooms each with own personality to host your special day.
Bringing the outdoors in
A big theme for 2019 weddings is recreating an enchanting garden inside your reception and ceremony room. Think hanging florals, whimsical trees and ivy foliage on tables, not to mention using tree stumps as cake stands and spray painted leaves for name places.
We hope our list of the top wedding trends for 2019 has got you excited and inspired to plan the rest of your big day. Why not explore our full range of wedding day packages and special offers to see if we could be the perfect match for you?
