When looking ahead into the coming months, there are lots of trend forecasts we're interested in. From wedding dress trends we saw during New York Bridal Fashion Week to the latest in interiors (to help beef up those registry lists!) to the prettiest new flower ideas , there's so much to look forward to in 2019.
