Vel­vet
Vel­vet will con­tinue to be used through­out this next year. It was a sta­ple at some wed­dings last year, but will become more promi­nently used in a lot of wed­dings in 2019. The great thing about vel­vet is that it can be used in all sea­sons depend­ing on the color you choose!

This will be the year of mood­ier accents. We started see­ing the darker images with a lot of con­trast in 2018 and this trend will only con­tinue to grow. Cou­ples are lov­ing the edgy look that this style of pho­tog­ra­phy gives so expect to see more through­out this year!

Per­son­al­ized place settings

This trend will be seen more in smaller, inti­mate wed­dings, but it’s so cute that we hope to see it the big­ger recep­tions as well! Instead of place cards, cou­ples are writ­ing notes for each guest and plac­ing it at their seats. How adorable would it be to receive a per­son­al­ized note from the bride and groom?!

This might be one of our favorite trends!! This will def­i­nitely be mak­ing more of an appear­ance in 2019, espe­cially dur­ing the cock­tail hour. 2018 wed­dings started this trend of bring­ing the indoors out if they had an out­door cock­tail hour and it’s such an ele­gant idea! Be on the look­out for more of these seat­ing areas through­out this year!

Min­i­mal­ism
This start­ing mak­ing its way into wed­dings last year and min­i­mal­ism in décor and design has no inten­tion of going any­where. The smaller color schemes and min­i­mal decor that View More: http://stellarexposures.pass.us/openhouse18cou­ples are lov­ing not only cre­ate for a lit­tle less has­sle with design but it also allows for a very nat­ural look for their big day!

Ban­quet tables
Ban­quet tables have always been a sta­ple at wed­dings and they will con­tinue to be a big part of 2019 wed­dings. A lot of peo­ple do opt to just hav­ing round tables, but ban­quet tables are some­thing to def­i­nitely think about dur­ing the plan­ning process as they’re a big favorite for your day!

How fun is it that they’re bring­ing in nat­ural ele­ments inside to their recep­tion space?! We can’t wait to see this more in 2019!
