Here at Brides, we like to dedicate the month of December (hello, engagement season!) to brainstorming creative wedding ideas for the year ahead. What will the dress trends be? Is baby's breath still back? Is there a new food truck? But here's the secret: We're not inventing these ideas out of nothing! Instead, we look to real couples who are throwing real parties, and planners who are doing the same for inspiration. (That is, after all, the whole point of the real weddings on our site.) So while we could easily tell you to scroll through pretty pics from now until 2019 for all the best inspo, we thought we would instead do you a favor by highlighting some of our favorite ideas right here.
Below, you'll find 10 trends/things/thoughts that we're excited for in 2019. And we're revealing all of our best secrets! You'll find decor moments we're obsessed with, practices we want to steal (um, we mean politely borrow), and concepts we can't wait to see couples execute. Basically, these are the ideas that could take your wedding from "cool wedding" to "wedding of the year." And not to brag, but we kinda know our stuff: We look at wedding pictures All! Year! Long!
Keep reading to see exactly what we're talking about, but we hope you take these ideas and create some of your own as well. We'll be right here ready to swoon over your wedding pics when you do!
