5 Unique Wedding Trends


There’s so much happening in the world of weddings right now. While wedding trends might come and go, these trends of 2019 are truly showstoppers. In 2018, we saw the right of minimalism and elegance, but this year is welcoming a lot of new excitement and flirty accents.

Whether you’re planning your dream wedding or just browsing ideas, these 5 unique wedding trends offer something for everyone. Your big day is one for the books, so let’s make sure it’s a stylish affair.

1. Layering Textures
Goodbye minimalism, hello texture. While texture is far from new to the wedding industry, it’s making a huge impact in 2019. This likely stems from the fashion industry where layering textures is super in right now.  What do we mean when we say it’s time to layer your textures? Basically, couples are breaking up with static color palettes and welcoming a new era of color and textures. It’s a feast for the eyes.

2. Medieval Wedding Dress Styles
While bold wedding dresses made an impact in the past year, this has taken a whole new turn. Medieval-inspired fashion is also not a new thing, but the popularity of shows like Game of Thrones have catapulted this fashion style down the aisle. Luckily, these medieval wedding dresses are to die for. With flowing, long sleeves and classic shapes, it’s no wonder these are a popular choice for brides today. This is a unique look you’ll love for years to come. Check this Azazie wedding dress offer for more inspiration.

3. Overgrown Gardens
Gardens have been a wedding staple for decades, but this unique take on this classic has us excited. Last year was all about being understated, and that usually meant having wispy, minimalistic decor and flowers. Today, couples are inviting gardens indoors, and they’re letting these gardens have their way. Overflowing, lush floral arrangements are a part of the newest aesthetic. 

4. Sunday Weddings
Friday and Saturday weddings have been the norm for so long, who isn’t ready for a change? Since weddings are becoming a more drawn-out affair, often spanning over several days, the actual ceremony is starting to be pushed to Sunday. Planning the big event on Sunday allows the bride and groom to get in some much-needed family time earlier in the weekend. 

5. Location-Themed Favor
Wedding favors are the best way to thank your guests for celebrating your big day, but the old favors are getting a bit stale. Today, brides and grooms are sharing a bit of their local flair with their wedding favors. This unique trend is a way to share something that’s special where you’re from. Local candies, food, and handmade items are all popular options. Are you interested in any of these unique trends above? Sometimes, it pays to think outside the box when it comes to saying “I do.” On your big day, make every second something to remember that speaks to you. From choosing a new gown to pushing your wedding day to Sunday, there’s a lot to think about before you walk down the aisle.
