2019 wedding trends
Hello and Happy new year!! For me the new year is a great time to start wedding planning especially with all those proposals that happen in December. Here is where we come into play as we have years of experience between us here at B&D and so thought I’d share some of my predictions with you all.
2018 was a fabulous year with some big and celebrity weddings taking place including two royal weddings. While I had so much fun last year, 2019 is set to be even more exciting with some amazing wedding florals.
Pantone colour of the year:
Pantone is always a huge trend setter and makes an entrance when choosing wedding themes and colours. This year is called Living Coral which is a beautiful mix of orange and pink. Coral is a fabulous colour for summer ad works so well in lots of colour mixes.
British Flowers and Foliage:
Increasingly brides are looking for a more relaxed feel to their wedding flowers and we have chatted to lots of brides and grooms choosing to go down the route of British. Here at B&D we have a calendar of British grown flowers and will try to use British where we can. Foliages used in the shop too is 90% British and ethically sourced. They call themselves the Irish green guys and are awesome. Every little helps to with the environment and you can be doing this even on your big day.
An Insta-loving trend we’re seeing is swapping the round tables and tall centrepieces for long banquet tables with rows of low flowers or Foliage garlands which are very up our street. Guests can see each other, the happy couple can sit in the middle without feeling like they are on display, and it makes for wonderful photos. Win!
It will be interesting to see how much of an impact Prince Harry and Meghan make on this years florals with their amazing and dramatic entrance at their wedding. Here at B&D we are already see big floral installations coming into play with floral arches, fireplaces, balconies and moongates.
