Wedding season is approaching quickly and, if you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking about your décor. But hosting a stylish wedding can be hard if you’re not up to date on the latest and most fashionable trends.
As one of the best wedding venues in Columbus, The Grand Event Center and its expert planners stay on the cutting-edge of 2019 wedding trends to help make the setup for your big day as seamless as possible!
This year, we will see the little details make a huge impact on décor plans, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re having a wedding in 2019, take a deeper look at these latest trends for the upcoming season.
Move over flowers, this year is all about greenery. This is shaping up to be a popular trend for 2019, as couples start to shift from wanting an outdoor wedding to having it at a trendy indoor venue like The Grand.
With greenery, we are able to bring the outdoors inside, all while creating a customized piece. Whether it’s for a bouquet, centerpiece or altar arrangement, greenery is a great addition to create a timeless, organic look. A benefit to this gorgeous trend is the cost—compared to flowers, greenery can be inexpensive, meaning these pieces can be bigger and better!
Candlelight can really change the entire mood of a room. Using candlelight as centerpieces for your reception will create a romantic feel and a timeless look. There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to candlelight—pillar candles, taper candles and floating candles all work perfectly for a wedding reception.
What’s better than the candle itself? The candle stands. You can match the candle with an antique holder or a clear cylinder depending on the look you are going for. When creating a candlelit centerpiece, try combining candles at different heights. This creates interest and dimension for every table.
If your taste is more modern, we have a trend just for you. 2019 will see many translucent details, and the options seem endless. You can incorporate this trend through ghost cars, chairs, clear charger plates, signage or even place cards!
Translucent details are easy to use as they go with just about all themes and colors. Add some calligraphy and a touch of greenery to bring your modern look to life. With such a versatile detail, you can’t go wrong with translucent.
All couples should think about which accent color would go best with their color scheme. Sometimes silver is the answer, sometimes gold. In recent years, rose gold has been a go-to. One way to incorporate this accent is through metallic flatware for your guests to use during meals.
Not only is metallic flatware a unique trend, it can also add that special touch to your tablescape that you were looking for. If you love this trend but aren’t feeling metallics, don’t feel left out! There are also other flatware options–like black and Lucite–that are just as trendy and stunning.
Mix of Colors
The wedding colors we will be seeing this year are a mix of pastels–such as blush pink–and big, bright pops. The pastel colors give off a romantic vibe, while the pop of color will add a trendy and visually enhancing element.
Need ideas for where to pop that bright color? Try adding it to your floral arrangements or linen selection. At the end of last year, Pantone announced their Color of the Year for 2019: Living Coral. This is a beautiful pastel color option to add to your wedding palette!
Changing up the fabrics used throughout a wedding can alter the feel (literally and figurately) more than one would think. In Columbus weddings, we saw a big increase in velvet over the last year–specifically in clothing.
Incorporate this trendy material with velvet table linen, apparel or even furniture. Although this texture works great with most themes–adding the richness everyone needs in their big day–we highly suggest velvet for alternative and vintage-themed weddings in 2019.
Last but not least, laser-cut details will make a huge appearance in 2019. Laser cutting can assist with personalizing your wedding and ensuring your piece is as unique and special as you. One way to incorporate this trend is to use laser-cut names on your place cards. Each name can be cut out and placed at every seat. This idea will help your wedding stand out from the rest, and these pieces double as favors. A win-win for you!
