If you got engaged during the holidays, congratulations! It’s certainly an exciting time and adding to the excitement is the thought of planning your special day. So, who is going to be by your side on the big day and what are they going to be wearing? These are important questions to consider. If you need some help figuring that out, keep reading for the top bridal party trends of 2019!
Smaller Bridal Parties
One of the biggest bridal party trends for 2019 is the concept of smaller bridal parties. Spurred by the Royal Wedding, many couples are opting to slim down their bridal parties to just a couple members. You might think this will offend some people, but there are other ways to incorporate those you care about into your big day. You can ask them to wear a specific color to designate themselves or ask them to do a special job like handing out programs or doing a reading during the marriage ceremony.
In 2019, you can expect to see bold and bright colors like turquoise. These colors are being incorporated into all aspects of the wedding from stationary and décor to bridal party attire.
For bridesmaids, consider going bold with the dress color. If that’s not exactly your taste, you can incorporate bright colors by adding a belt or having bright colored shoes, jewelry, corsages or bouquets.
Taking into account that you probably don’t want your groomsmen in turquoise suits, consider adding pops of the color in their ties or socks. You can also incorporate pops of turquoise into the boutonniere.
Mix & Match
Mixing and matching has been increasing in popularity lately and 2019 is expected to be the biggest year yet. With more weddings taking place outdoors or featuring a low-key vibe, couples are looking for ways to reduce the formality that’s often associated with weddings.
For bridesmaids, this means mixing and matching dresses. While some brides opt for the bridal party to have the same color and length dresses, just different styles, you can go as unique as you want. In 2019, look for bridesmaids in varying shades of a certain color or even in different pastel colors.
For groomsmen, it can be a bit more difficult to mix and match without clashing. Thankfully, there are a few areas where you can mix and match without detracting from the overall look of your bridal party. Consider purchasing different boutonnieres for your groomsmen or allowing them to choose different patterned ties in the same shade. Mismatched socks are also a trend growing in popularity for bridal parties in 2019.
Natural florals are another bridal party trend for 2019. Instead of choosing flowers for boutonnieres and bouquets, couples are gravitating to more subdued natural greenery. The more organic and natural the florals are, the better!
