"Outdoor ceremonies are looking to be as popular a wedding trend as ever this year. With many couples now planning a relaxed and informal celebration, the trend for an outdoor ceremony is going nowhere. Although, at present you are still required to marry within an approved permanent structure, an increasing number of venues are creating the required space so they can offer outdoor ceremonies."
"Some couples are now opting to take this trend one step further and are choosing to keep their legal nuptials a low-key affair by inviting family and friends to celebrate their marriage with a celebrant led blessing. With woodland ceremonies and family land looking to become an increasing popular choice this year, outdoor ceremonies are the way forward."
"The relaxed and informal wedding trend is also filtering through to the wedding dining experience. With more choice than ever, couples are now looking to replace the traditional three-course wedding Breakfast with luxury grazing tables. A visual feast for the eye as well as the palette, these beautiful creations display a vast array of mouthwatering platters each elegantly styled to perfection."
"For couples looking to create a visual statement, balloons are going to be a huge hit in 2019. Think big – large bespoke arches, garlands, clouds and even full ceiling coverage." The balloon wedding trend is fulfilled by using balloons of varying sizes and textures, designed using a colour palette to compliment that of your wedding day styling.
"Having played a massive role in weddings for many years, 2019 will to be no exception. As with the introduction of large balloon installations, it’s looking like 2019 blooms are going to be just as big a wedding trend in 2019.
"Using the floral arch created for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day as inspiration, flower arches are now on the top of many couples wish list. Layers upon layers of succulent foliage overflowing with fragrant blooms, these eye catching creations can be designed to enhance ceremony areas, adorn the entrance to your church, venue or marquee and not forgetting gracing the back drop of your top table.
"Another floral trend predicted to be popular for 2019 is the meadow effect.
"Brides are increasing requesting that their aisle, staircase and top table to name a few be decorated with these exquisite garden style arrangements. Bursting with fragrant and vibrant blooms, it’s easy to see why these creations will be a popular addition to weddings this year."
