Don't Make These 7 Wedding Trend Mistakes

Don't Make These 7 Wedding Trend Mistakes

We’ve been talking a lot about trends this month and it’s time to get into the things NOT to do this year if you want to avoid your wedding being on the “been there done that” list. So, let's take alook at these 7 wedding trend mistakes!

An overly Instagramed wedding!

Wedding trend mistakes Your guests are there to celebrate with you right? Invite guests to put away their phones, by providing a professional photographer that will capture all the candid moments you are all craving. Stay off your phones and immerse yourselves in the beautiful event you worked so hard to create. Don’t let cell phones and hashtags and selfies get in the way of you and your friends making fun memories out on the dance floor or a meaningful conversation with your grandmother. The most cherished keepsakes from your wedding day are the special moments you share as a couple with your friends and family.  

Wedding favor or junk drawer contender? Don't fall into one of these wedding trend mistakes!

Wedding trend mistakesWhat’s the truth about the cute bauble you picked out as a favor for all your wedding guests? You know the little decorative trinket you spent money on? Unfortunately most of these get left behind at the wedding or placed in your guest’s junk drawer when they get home. Forget about the wedding favor and put the money towards something that people care more about, like being witness to a beautiful well-thought out wedding ceremony. Put more focus on your precious nuptials.

#badhashtag

Wedding trend mistakes Hashtags are a supertrend that aren’t just going to go away. However try to avoid making a creative and probably confusing hashtag. You may induce serious eye-rolls with your oh so cute hashtag creation. We advise keeping it simple and genuine by just using your names.

Can I monogram that?

Wedding trend mistakes Please stop putting your monogram on EVERYTHING!! It’s important to use this sparingly or else it just looks tacky! Put your monogram on the invitation and use it in one design element at the reception. Keep it off your dance floor. Don’t put it on napkins, signs, or table cloths. Just keep it simple and sophisticated.

A sea of gray… I’m bored

Wedding trend mistakes One of the biggest wedding trend mistakes to ditch this year is the monochromatic bridesmaid look. Minimalism is still in, but with a flair! You can stick with a complementary palette but then let your bridal party wear varying patterns, hues, designers, and styles that show off individuality and helps them feel good too!

Geometric ceremonies are too trendy

Wedding trend mistakes While we will see more art installments in wedding receptions this year, avoid using geometric backdrops at your wedding ceremony. It had it’s fifteen minutes of fame last year, but this trend is not one that will last. You will be looking at your wedding photos forever, a geometric backdrop will seriously date your wedding, making it a wedding trend mistake you'll want to avoid. Another thing to watch out for are asymmetrical designs. The look tends to draw the eye into a particular direction, away from the couple; it’s distracting. When it comes to your ceremony backdrop, choose elements that are symmetrical, chic, and timeless.

2019 Wedding Traditions vs. Trends

2019 Wedding Traditions vs. Trends

At times wedding traditions can get in the way of the bride creating her perfect day. Every couple is different and deserves the opportunity to make traditions work in a way that is authentic for them. Moving forward into 2019 and beyond we are ready to see how brides turn to creating something that feels a bit more personal and heartfelt. The days of showing off just to show off are done. Your wedding should be a genuine expression of your love and an experience your guests can enjoy and celebrate.

Wedding Traditions Versus Wedding Trends

The groom must not see the bride before the wedding ceremony

Wedding Traditions you want to keep This is one of those wedding traditions that stems from arranged marriages and is pretty old fashioned in today’s day. If you have parents that are sticklers about this tradition though, you can have a first look before the ceremony. It’s more modern and intimate, and it still keeps the suspense of the groom having to wait until the wedding day to see his bride. Rather than having your fiancé react to seeing you for the first time as you walk down the aisle in front of a small or large crowd of friends and family, you can have that special moment alone together. It also means more quality time for the two of you on this big day.

Your engagement ring should be a diamond

wedding traditions you can change It is said that wearing a diamond in a gold setting helps protect you from evil spirits and demons. This tradition, while still timeless, is not completely trendy today. This accessory will be something you wear everyday so keep that in mind and choose something that reflects your style.

Your wedding dress should be white

wedding traditions worth changing Nope! This is one of the wedding traditions that proves they can change. A lot of brides opt for something that, once again, represents their personal style. You want to look and feel your best on your wedding day and that may mean wearing something other than the traditional white wedding gown. There are so many options out there too. You can choose a gown that’s a completely different color or you can add pops of color like died tulle under a your skirt for a unique, but subtle look.

Your bridal party must match

beautiful wedding traditions In 2019 we will definitely see bridal parties wearing multi-colored, varying patterns, and different cut dresses. Don’t expect to see monochromatic color schemes or shades of white. Each bridesmaid is beautiful and unique and giving them the freedom to choose a dress within your style and design parameters, will help them feel and look great. Also, more bridal parties are co-ed today. You aren’t really going to have your guy best friend in a purple tux are you? Have fun mix and matching your bridal party!

You must send save-the-date cards

Even for more formal wedding events sending a save-the-date by mail is out of style. Instead, hiring a professional photographer to create a beautiful keepsake and digital invitation for your friends and family is the way to go in 2019. Many couples will also be creating wedding websites where their guests can rsvp, look at your wedding registry, and receive updates leading up to the big day.

Take the pressure off yourselves and set your wedding date far in the future and just enjoy each step of the process.

This is also a good time to take care of your body so that you are feeling and looking your absolute best on your big day. Having a longer engagement will help you finance your wedding, but it also gives you time for financial talks as a couple. Set goals to prioritize and start your married life on the same page. bridesmaid wedding trends

Backyard Weddings

One of Pinterest’s highest searched keywords by brides-to-be last year was “Backyard Weddings”! This has always been a popular choice for couples and families looking for a budget friendly venue option that is comfortable for everyone. We love the backyard wedding because helps set your guests at ease and puts everyone in the mood to party! It’s nice being able to save a little money to put towards a future home, your honeymoon, or maybe beef up the design budget. Photo from Minnow Park Photography.

flower wedding trendsViolet Florals

2019 Florals will be wild, bold, and free! We will see violet colored flowers making a splash in many bouquets and floral designs. Pantone’s color of the year was purple! Think bright orchids and vervain, or pretty pansies that will pack a purple punch.

reception wedding trendsAlternate Reception Entertainment

We are really looking forward to seeing are all the unique entertainment ideas for 2019 weddings. Having a DJ or band for music is surely a must to get everyone moving during the reception. However, having other types of entertainment for your guests to be involved with throughout the evening will put everyone in party mode! For example think, tarot readings, a classic photo booth, ice cream bar, horse shoes, archery or acrobatic performers! Don’t forget to hire a photographer to capture all the candid instagrammable moments! Photo from Style Me Pretty.
