If you're a 2019 bride, you know better than anyone that 2018 is almost over and your wedding day will be here faster than you can say "I do." From experience, I know this sudden realisation is both exciting and daunting in equal measure. First and foremost, you should be excited. Getting married might be commonplace for the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, but for the rest of us, it's akin to a lunar eclipse. It just doesn't happen every day. The reality is, though, none of us can devote as much time to planning our big days as we might like.
But you needn't panic if you haven't picked our your plates, chosen your dress or found your favourites—in fact, it could be a blessing in disguise. Much like fashion, wedding trends come and go, and it's only now that 2019's are starting to emerge. Which is where we come in. We consulted with to wedding expert Janice Dwumfour, head of marketing and PR at London's one-stop wedding destination The Wedding Gallery, to decode the trending wedding colours in 2019, along with stunning photos from top wedding planners Knot & Pop and Steven Moore.
Be warned: If you're already married, what you're about to see may make you want to do it all over again…
"Although blue is widely regarded as a good-luck charm, it's seldom used as a full-blown scheme. However, after seeing it on bridal dresses at Vera Wang, I know it's going to trickle into everything else, from flowers to favours."
"Soft blush offers a whimsical nod to romance, and it's proving more popular as the years go on. Less standout than pink, it's little wonder it's the next go-to for ultra-feminine brides."
"Classicists love green, as with so many flowers around, it blends in with the foliage, making it more of a neutral than an accent colour. Glassware offers another dimension to the hue. Layer it in different shades."
"Splashes of burgundy and crimson have been popular towards the end of 2018, so I imagine this scheme will continue to gain momentum into 2019, too. Personally, I think it looks its best paired with rust and blush tones to soften it."
