Nuptial Inspo 2019: Canterbury Bride

When it comes to the big day, it’s your opportunity to be the belle of the ball and the life of the party. And, while you want the day to be all about you, there’s no harm in looking to global trends to make it the best when it comes to your matrimonial celebrations.



1. Coral Cravings
When Pantone announced its colour of 2019 as a bright, sunny, pinky-orange named ‘Living Coral’, chances are the colour institute hadn’t banked on starting a new bridal trend. But they’ve certainly got us craving coral and this showstopper is perfect for a sunny summer wedding.

2. Banquet Beauty
Smaller round tables and tall centrepieces are being eschewed for elegant long banquet tables with low centrepieces or simply draped in greenery and dotted with simple tea lights or fairy lights. It’s more social and it’s more Insta-worthy – win-win!

3. Less is more
Sometimes less really is more and this can certainly be said of 2019 wedding dress trends as we herald the return of classic designs and simple styles. Heading the return is the poster girl for minimalism, Meghan Markle, whose own dress, designed by the British fashion designer Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of fashion powerhouse Givenchy, transformed how we seek to dress on the big day.

4. Go-to Greenery
We’re bringing the outside in for 2019 weddings, with greenery reigning as a classic go-to shade of weddings this year. Trees and foliage are taking centre stage, offering lush rich table runners and decoration that makes a strong base for the popular minimalist look.

5. Well-Groomed
Groomsmen are proving three’s not a crowd in 2019 as they take their best three-piece suits to the aisle. The three piece suit is a classic and about as suave and stylish as it can get for the men in our lives.

6. Writing’s on the wall
Handwritten notes are a nostalgic thing of the past, which makes handwritten wedding invitations something extra special and 2019 brides are utilising professional illustrators to let their fingers do the talking.

7. Colourful confetti
There’s no denying that 2019 weddings all come down to Insta-worthiness and the colourful confetti trend certainly takes the crown for that! Of course though, this is 2019, so the confetti is enviro-conscious confetti; water-soluble, non-toxic and biodegradable, but wow-worthy none the less.

8. Gender Fluidity
We’re used to bridesmaids and groomsmen, but this year expect to see more bridesmen, groomsgirls and best women! Because the beauty of 2019 weddings is that we don’t have to fit our celebrations into boxes – and that includes our nearest and dearest.
