Happy Wedding Year


Andrew Anderson Photography

Congratulations to the couples getting married in 2019! Let me tell you, the year will fly by and before you know it you will find yourself on Wedding Day watching all of your plans come to life! If you have forgone using a planner you will see that planning a wedding that's timeless vs. trendy, engaging vs. boring and memorable vs. a copy can be tough! Vogue Magazine asked some experts in the wedding and event industry what are some trend mistakes to avoid for 2019. I have picked out the ones that I most agree with and added a few of my own to help those of you currently navigating the wedding planning process! 

Do you have some wedding trends that you wish would go away? Please list them in the comments below! 


Monochromatic Bridesmaid Dresses 

“Monochromatic bridesmaids’ attire is no longer the requirement. Instead, stick with a complementary palette, and let members of your bridal party wear different patterns, styles, hues, and designers that express their individual points of view.” -Rosemary Hattenbach


10+ Bridal Parties 

In the case of large bridal parties, less is truly best! Adding every relative, friend and favorite co-worker to be a bridesmaid or groomsmen has gotten out of control. Large bridal parties are extensive on the budget and the wedding day timeline. Pick the people who will truly help you every step of the way and extend an invitation to the rest as guests! - Covesa Gragg


Coral Color Palettes

“Pantone may have named ‘Living Coral’ their color of the year, but please don’t name it the color of your wedding! The pinky peach hue will quickly feel outdated and make your bridesmaids look like they stepped off the set of a John Hughes movie.” -Bronson van Wyck


Silk Runners on Tables

“This is just beyond overdone. The whole soft and pretty look is on its way out.” -Alison Laesser-Keck and Bryan Keck
