Wedding Trends for 2019

The 2019 wedding trends that you need to know.

Wedding trends come and go, some quicker than others, so how do you know which trends are worth including in your big day? Here we talk to our wedding suppliers and round up whats really going to be hot in 2019.

Garden Weddings

According to Pinterest, searches for garden weddings were up 441% in 2018, which is lucky for Holkham as we have two stunning outdoor sites for you to create your own
secret garden wedding. Theres a marquee spot right in front of Holkham Hall with views over the south of the park or you theres the Walled Garden - complete with wild
meadow flowers - all to yourself. For those not willing to risk the Norfolk weather, we are also seeing a trend of brides bringing the outdoors in, using fabulous trees and foliage as decoration.

Smoke Bombs

Move over fireworks, the latest wow-factor at weddings is smoke bombs! Pink, blue, orange Any colour goes, just make it bright and bold. We think this trend would be amazing over the lake at Holkham. Make your entrance as a newly married couple in a rowing boat to a puff of fabulous rainbow-coloured smoke, and just think of the photos!

Coral

Since Pantone announced coral as its colour of the year the bright and bold hue has already made its way into weddings, whether its in the flowers or the cakes. Emma from Buns of Fun is seeing brides bring coral into their cakes in different ways, from using coral roses on the top, to subtle washes of the colour in the buttercream.



Clean and Green

Perhaps inspired by Meghan and Harrys royal wedding flowers, classic whites and greens wont be going anywhere this year, predicts Sue Barnes from Lavender Green Flowers. She says they will just be used in more interesting ways. With outdoor weddings on the up, tall grasses and palms will be popular. We are definitely seeing a slow move away from rusty shabby chic foliage in favour of a more linear look in both bouquets and floral installations around the venue.

Sharing Platters

Whats going to be big in wedding food in 2019? Sharing, sharing, sharing, says Tristram Abbs of Julie Abbs Catering. We are seeing more sociable platters being requested, full of colour, flavour and delicious aromas to excite all the senses and get guests interacting with each other.



Tiny Bites

In contrast to the heavy sharing platters and trays of canapes, Tristram reports that couples are opting for small, bite-sized desserts, petit fours and delicate palate cleansers that wont weigh the guests down, leaving them ready for a night of dancing.

Doughnuts

But dont worry, sweets arent being completely ousted from wedding days. Our own wedding expert Belle Hutton is a big fan of the doughnut wall and she isnt the only one. Pinterest listed doughnuts as one of the big trends for weddings and celebrations in 2019 after searches for the pretty, round pastry shot up.
