2019 Wedding Trends

2019 is here and we want to let you know about 7 of the biggest trends you’ll see this year! We’ve all had dreams about what our weddings would look like and have thoughts on how we want to make it come true, but let us give you even more inspiration! The best part is the girls at Lesner Inn can help make all of these dreams come true! Just ask us about our wedding design services and we’d be more than happy to make your vision come to life. Now sit back and let us tell you about the biggest trends for your 2019 wedding!

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!

Edgy weddings

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!                      Above: Luke and Ashley Photography

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!

Bringing the outdoors in

We started seeing more and more couples using greenery at the end of 2017 and well into 2018 and we will see this throughout this year as well, but we will also see couples using grasses in their décor! 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!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    Working with Lindsey and the Lesner Inn was great! I planned the majority of my wedding from out of town and Lindsey could not have been more patient with my constant emails. The venue looked beautiful at the reception and my guests loved the views and the food. The crab cakes were everyone’s favorite. Thank you so much to the Lesner Inn team and & Lindsey for such a beautiful wedding!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
