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.

The Best Fall Bridal Looks in 2018

The Best Fall Bridal Looks in 2018

While a full white and unadorned gown is a timeless classic still relevant today, this year’s bridal shows for Fall included looks to help you be uniquely Y-O-U. Designers are getting inspired by their brides when creating their fall bridal look — not everyone is looking for a floor length highly adorned gown, some want a sassy and sweet romper or a chic power suit! This year the bridal styles were influenced by the type of fabric used, minimalism, the weather, natural elements, and trendy 70s boho fashion. We picked four of our favorite looks for Fall straight from the runway.  

Top four favorite fall bridal looks from the 2018 runways:

Bows

Bows were a repeating trend on the runway this Fall. One of our favorite looks was this sweet dress by Carolina Herrera. The blue bow adds a soft pop of color to an otherwise traditional floor length gown — and you can check the box for your “something blue”! This gown is draped in floral lace too, which adds the trendy “nature factor” that’s so perfect for this season.beautiful fall bridal looks

Embellishments inspired by nature

Okay, this is next look is pure art! Whether it’s with your hair accessories or your gown, adding natural elements to your fall bridal look like this Alexandra Grecco gown is beautiful for a Fall themed wedding. We absolutely adore the structure of the nature inspired adornments on this pink beige gown. Additionally, we love the color because it will be stunning with all the Fall color palettes; like crimsons, plums, and evergreen.Unique fall bridal look

70s Boho inspired

Bohemian styles have been trending in the wedding-sphere for a while now, so it’s no wonder why we're seeing some updated looks for this Fall. The Boho bridal styles were influenced by the always flattering look from the 70s, the wrap dress. From the flowing sheer fabric to the fluttering sleeves, this gown is hands down our favorite bohemian fall bridal look! We can totally see this paired with a pretty shawl too.fall boho bride

Chic Minimalism

Our final favorite style from the runway this year was the chic minimalism. This gown by Tadashi Shoji totally stands out. We love the minimalist yet dramatic structure of the dress. Plus, the long backless lines and bow adds an elegant lengthening effect for the bride.simple fall bridal look
