Every year, fashion followers wait with bated breath to see what will be revealed during fashion shows throughout the year to forecast the next year’s trends, and each year the designers don’t disappoint. What did we see on the runways this year and what else do we have to look forward to seeing at weddings in 2019?
Pantone’s Color of the Year – 2019
For the last 20 years, the color experts at Pantone have searched and analyzed ongoing color trends around the world. They arrive at a decision that influences multiple industries, including but not limited to fashion, weddings, and interior decorating. This year, inspired by digital art and an appreciation for natural beauty, they chose Living Coral.
The hue brings a whimsical and lively sense to any event. The color could range from bridesmaid dresses to brightly colored macarons on the trending dessert table. This eye-catching and taste bud tempting shade is a great accent color that we’ll see used in weddings to bring life to the celebrations next year.
Engagement and wedding ring stones
It seems like 2019 is going to be a year of color, and that even extends to wedding rings. We’ve begun to see an emergence of a return to including rubies, sapphires, and emeralds as accents in wedding rings, like the ones offered by Blue Nile. Even the late Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge have opted for a gemstone ring.
Traditionally, these stones, which were more rare than white diamonds, were used to signify various ideals that were important to the couple. For instance, sapphires represent that the couple will always stay true to one another, while rubies will bring a vitalization to the relationship. While they are softer stones than diamonds, they make great additions to any wedding band or engagement ring.
Bridalwear The runways for the spring of next year showcased bows for wedding dresses, but not your average cinching bow. These accents will become more of the focal points of dresses, giving either a modern or traditional twist to a dress. Attention-drawing oversized bows are seen to be a trend for next year, inviting another great outlet to incorporate colors.
Speaking of colors, we even saw an entire collection from Vera Wang featuring colors far beyond the traditional white, ivory, or the popular blush for wedding dresses. The introduction if color in her lines isn’t strictly new for this designer but this year, the combination of colors and how they work together to bring a look together is truly something to behold. Bold and beautiful, brides for 2019 hoping to embrace the trending designs will be far from the blushing brides of old.
