6 Wedding Trends That Will Be Hot In 2019

August 6, 2018

With each and every year, wedding trends seem to get more and more unique, making wedding planning extra exciting and, of course, extra stressful.

How can you make your Big Day stand out? How do you avoid the clichés? By finding some of the best wedding vendors in the whole city, that’s how! Join us on Wednesday, August 15th at Stillwater Place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to meet with over 40 of Cleveland’s best wedding experts -- including retailers, planners, florists, jewelers, photographers and more -- all in one place!

Until then, let’s take a look at some of the hottest wedding trends that you’ll be seeing a lot of in 2019.

Unplugged ceremonies. That's right, no phones! Many brides and grooms are politely starting to ask that phones are put away during their ceremonies to avoid distractions and to help all guests live in the moment.

Guys, THIS! #burghbrides #unpluggedwedding #putyourphonedown --- Repost from @peace_and_love_ceremonies . Life is so crazy at times. We’re all busy, all trying to remember too much, and for a lot of us, always on our phones. I challenge you, the next time you’re at a wedding, don’t get your phone out until after the ceremony. Be present. Take it in. Catch all the selfies afterwards at the reception. No one wants to live life through a lens. And that totally pure, raw emotion that gives you goosebumps and makes you all tingly happens so rarely, soak it up if you’re lucky enough to witness it. Here’s my favourite unplugged sign to date, from the super cool Caity at @mummagooseshop for Jess and Nath recently ✌--

More DIY food stations. From build your own taco bars to s'more stations, we'll soon be seeing a lot more of those (and we're totally okay with it).

Shades of purple. Pantone's color of the year for 2018 was Ultra Violet, which means brides who are beginning their 2019 wedding planning are indulging in the purple decorations that are everywhere you turn.

Maids, braids & wild bouquets----

Lots of greenery. Succulents everywhere.

Mix-matched bridal party attire. Sure, you've seen a wedding or two where bridesmaids were given the OK to choose their own dresses, whether it be by style, cut or color, but, coming soon, you'll start seeing both bridesmaids and groomsmen doing the same.

Friendship isn’t a BIG thing it’s a million little things, and the right people to share them with. I was beyond blessed to be chosen along with these wonderful women that hold a place in Jessica’s heart, to stand by her side on her wedding day 06•23•18!!! It was a marvelous day; tears were shed, laughs were shared, and vows were exchanged. I couldn’t have been happier to be her MOH #misstomrs #weddingseason #weddingphotography #MOH #bridesmaids #friendshipgoals S/O to some awesome people and amazingly talented photographers! --: @topher_and_rae_studios

Mix-matched place settings. This one sounds tricky because too much of a variety on a small table may seem kind of clunky, but it also seems like a challenge I would like to tackle! 

What other wedding trends do you think we'll start seeing next year?
