2019 Wedding Trends you’ll want to try now!

With unique wedding themes, colours and gowns the 2019 wedding season is going to be an exciting one! We collected some of our favourite current trends for you that you’re sure to want to add to your wedding plans. 


  1. The first trend we’ve noticed coming out for 2019  is celestial decor themes. It adds a feel of magic to any wedding with its glittery star and moon decorations and deep blues and golds. This trend is sure to stick around and can help make any wedding even more romantic. 


Via: Etsy

2. Next on our list are the beautiful and boho belle sleeve wedding gowns. Giving a throwback to the 70’s this 2019 trend has become popular again this year and will definitely be sticking around for 2019. We love the flowy romantic look it gives and you can find it in different styles that would suit any bride. 

3. Geometric backdrops are the perfect mix between modern and rustic. Natural materials add a feel of warmth and cozy to any wedding and these geometic backdrops filled with flowers are simply stunning. 


4. We’ve seen a lot of these this season already and we’re only at the end of May! Bridal kimonos/robes are a fast-spreading trend that we’re sure to see a lot of in 2019, especially for those getting married early Spring or Fall. These kimono add a classy yet bohemian touch similar to the belle sleeve trend and the combination of both trends makes for a very romantic look.


5. Neon signs are one of our top 3 trends for the season, they look fantastic and they add an unexpected design element to your wedding that you can keep for years to come! Check out these examples we found that add some flare to your special day!

3 Bridal Jewellery Tips for the Big Day

Aside from style, colour, and how to accessorize your wedding jewellery, there are three common sense tips we’d like to impart for your big day that are often overlooked. 

The first being to match your jewellery to your dress, and not the other way around. Seems obvious enough, but often times a bride-to-be will fall in love with a piece of jewellery before she’s purchased the gown. That can lead to major disappointment if the much-loved jewellery doesn’t fit with the dress. 

The second is to be extra cautious with bracelets. Bracelets can add romantic charm and a little bling as it slides up and down your arm. It can also snag on just about everything and drive you bonkers while doing so. Find a non-catching bracelet or try one on with your dress or a lace skirt. Do a little dance, move around and see what happens.

Lastly, the earings. Avoid anything too heavy. Again, this may seem obvious, but they may not feel heavy until you’ve had them on for 7 hours and your lobes are dragging on the ground. Give them a test run for the entire day before you commit.

Give Your Bouquet an Elegant Vintage Throwback

It’s often the little subtleties that can make a simple wedding feel elegant and luxurious. Bouquets are one of the aspects of your big day where you can add a bit of pizzazz and personality, with aspects that are both personal to you and befitting of a vintage-inspired wedding. The bouquet ideas below are easy to create at home and will give your walk down the aisle a simple nod to old Hollywood glam.

Pearls. Whether you have a simple strand of pearls that hugs the stem of your bouquet, or you go all out with pearl brooches woven through a white rose bouquet, you’ve got yourself some vintage glam. Between the tiny bit of colour and the various textures, the bouquet will add just enough aesthetic without taking away from your gown. 

Image / Pinterest

Lace-Wrapped Bouquet. For lovers of delicate lace, this is the bouquet you never knew you’ve always wanted. Hydrangea, snowberry, sage, stock, dusty miller, English roses, seeded eucalyptus all resting in a twine nest and wrapped in vintage lace. The best part about this bouquet is that the lace can come from just about anything, including your mother’s or grandmother’s old wedding dress or veil. With that kind of sentimentality, your walk down the aisle will become that much more special. As an added bonus, this bouquet can serve as your ‘something old’.

Feathers. For those opting for a more glamorous and grand wedding, this bouquet is definitely a step in the right direction. Perfect for black-tie events, this bouquet just screams old Hollywood glamour. The soft feathers add gorgeous texture to the all white bouquet and really give it that vintage feel.

Tips for Walking in Heels (Like a Boss!) on your Wedding Day

If you’re determined to wear heels on your big day, then go for it. Even if you’ve never worn heels before, you’ve got plenty of time to get comfortable. The best tip for high-heeled elegance is practice, practice, practice. Here’s how the models do it:

Buy your wedding shoes (or another pair of heels of the same height) and wear them around the house every day for a week or 2 for a couple of hours. Also, try wearing them out to places in public. It might feel awkward at first, but after a while of breaking them in you’ll feel more comfortable. Be sure to scuff up the bottoms a bit so that you don’t slip and slide in them.

Bridal Hats for the Bride with Panache

There are some brides who don’t dream about veils, headpieces or diamond-studded tiaras. They dream of hats. In fact, hats have become the bridal accessory of choice for some of the most fashionable brides. To give it a try, find yourself a millinery boutique. Hats are measured in circumference and it’s very important that the hat finds harmony with your proportions, the shape of your face, and the style of your wedding. It should sit above the ears and frame the face to make your eyes stand out. Check out some of these gorgeous options.

Choosing your Bridesmaid Gifts

Your bridesmaids are an important part of your wedding. They’re your people, the closest of the close, the inner circle, the BFF squad. Not only do they stand with you on one of the most important days of your life, but they also invest a great deal of time, money and effort into making sure your day is the best day that it can be. 

Getting them a gift is non-negotiable. Budget this in at the beginning. It’s important, and shouldn’t be an afterthought. When it comes to picking out gifts for them, there are two ways to go about it. The first, is that each girl gets the same gift. Jewelry and/or handbags are quite common. 

Image / Pinterest

This is a great idea for a group that is super close. Having something that is the same (with minor variances) will make them feel forever part of the tribe. If this sounds like your “I do” crew, consider splurging for something a little more personal and a lot more permanent. Your sisters are forever, right? They are the anchors that keep you grounded. Together you have unbreakable hearts. (Or something like that.)

Image / Pinterest

Image / Tattoos

Image / Pinterest

The second school of thought is to shop for each one like it’s their birthday. This allows you to be sentimental and choose something personal and appropriate for each girl. 

Whatever you choose, don’t cheap out. You don’t have to spend as much as they did on their dresses, but make sure that you put thought and effort into their gifts. And don’t forget the card. A personal note to each girl acknowledging what they mean to you individually is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Write brilliant prose and make those girls cry big ugly tears!

Unique Wedding Rings to fit your Vibe

If traditional bridal sets just aren’t your thing, get started early finding out the different styles and types available to suit your unique personality. (Anything goes, really.) If you also want to enjoy the romanticism of having your groom surprise you, don’t be shy with spamming sharing your favourites with him to give him an idea of your style. Then you can leave the rest to him. Or, if you want to be certain you get what you want, pick them out together as a couple. Here are a few unique wedding rings we found to get you started.

Spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Week on Instagram

The top designers in bridal have been unveiling their new collections at the spring 2017 Bridal Fashion Week in New York City. And what a glorious week it has been. This year the bridal rules have changed. Gowns are now more about personal expression and the versatility of the brides who want to throw caution (and past traditions) to the wind. Brides today have a different way of doing things, and they are definitely bringing sexy back. Check out some of these notable moments from the week.

Flirty and Fabulous


#WTW #WhatsTrendingWednesday Suit me up – “The Modern Bride” Although still a controversial wedding outfit, trouser (pant) suits have been seen all over the catwalks this week in New York during Bridal Fashion Week. For the non-traditional bride #spring2017 is all about structured suits with effortlessly tailored trousers in crisp-white as seen from designers like @houseofherrera. Other designers got even more creative with the silhouette. @naeemkhannyc offered a contoured all white beaded long sleeve jumpsuit while @moniquelhuillier showcased a softer ensemble, a strapless jumpsuit with lace overlay made complete by a delicate tulle train. This fashion choice has got split decision from the Diana Collins Team. It has left us wondering whether the white trouser suit can be just as chic, formal and impactful as a ball gown or if the modern choice is a fashion step too far? We would love to know what you think? #instablog #modernbride #trousersuit #nybfw #carolinaherrera #naheemkhan #moniquelhuillier #bride #bridalgown #weddingdress #wedding #weddingdress #weddinginspiration #bridalwear #bridalsuit #weddingsuit #IDo #weddingsbydianacollins #luxuryweddingplanners #luxuryplanners #luxuryweddings @lovemydress @spraepr @sweetpeapr

3 Charming Boho Bridal Accessories

Boho chic as a fashion trend has found itself coming and going for the past 25 years or so. Drawing on both bohemian and hippie influences, it’s a varied style that places emphasis on loose, flowing skirts, natural materials, and various other elements. If you’re a fan of the boho look and are looking to incorporate it into your bridal outfit, here are a few accessory ideas to help you get started.

Hair Chains

Hair chains are not only very beautiful and regal looking hair pieces, they’re also super comfortable and easy to wear. That’s one of the advantages of boho chic – you look so stylish without all the hassle of feeling uncomfortable! You also have a lot of options here with a hair chain. Keep it simple and minimalistic with the chains and colours if your bridal affair is of a subdued nature. If you’re looking for more sparkle, feel free to pick a hair piece with more beads and jewels.

Raw Crystal Jewelry

Raw crystal jewelry, despite lacking the polish of cut stones, have their own special charm. They refract light in more mysterious ways, their colours are more varied and interesting, and their shapes are not as predictable. Pick a stone that matches your colour scheme, your theme (all stones have meanings!), or, if you can’t decide, layer them! Layers are always good.

White Statement Sandals

Boho chic is all about casual stylishness, so what could be more casual and stylish than a pair of snazzy sandals? Pick a white pair to up the fanciness (wouldn’t want to be too casual) and don’t be afraid of embellishment. Feathers, stones, and metal coins are just some of the many decorations you could go for. Comfort and style – what could be better?

The Language of Flowers: 3 Different Floral Crown Looks

Floral crowns have a long and distinguished history. From important ceremonies to fun and carefree celebrations, people have worn these beautiful headpieces for all manner of occasions. If you’re looking to don a floral crown on your wedding day, you have quite a few options. From the real deal to the fabricated, the freshly picked or the dried. Whichever you decide to go with, here are a few traditional crown pieces to get you started.

Crown of Roses

Roses have been a symbol for love and beauty for a very long time. Ranging in colour from delicate whites, blushes of pink, and vivid reds (as well as some striped and tipped varieties), roses are some of the most traditionally romantic flowers around. Use them in your crown while they’re still partially closed or when they’re fully open, depending on your tastes. Also, if you’re unsure about colour, a soft pink is a great middle ground to accent just about any colour scheme.

Crown of Gardenias

The gardenia, a heavily scented flower nested in dark leaves, is a gorgeous floral accent in any bridal outfit. You can use the flower on its own or arranged alongside others, whichever works best for you. The resulting crown will be a dreamy and elegant thing. Its delicate ivory petals are easily bruised, however, so handle fresh blossoms with care!

Crown of Lily of the Valley

A crown made from lily of the valley is a sure way to delicately enhance any bridal look you’re going for, although they tend to work best with a similarly delicate look. These clusters of bell shaped blooms, although expensive year round, make for some of the prettiest floral crowns around. Their scent, fresh and light, is also simply beautiful.
