Our Favorite Wedding Trends for 2019

With wedding season in full swing, we are excited to share the biggest 2019 trends with all of you. From stunning lights to innovative florals, these decor ideas will have your guests marveling that your wedding is the first to stand out from the cookie cutter celebrations they’ve been attending all year.

Unique Lighting
We have long known at IAE that lighting is crucial to create the perfect ambiance, and we love the new obsession with custom neon lights. Hang neon bar signs to light the way for guests to easily grab their next drink or accent your sweetheart table with a neon sign of your new last name - both will add a vibrant accent to your event.

Wedding Party Favors Are Out…
Experiences are in. While wedding party favors can be a fun keepsake, most of the tokens get tossed by the wayside. Instead, delight your guests with an unexpected experience that will fill all of their senses. Cigar rolling, whiskey tasting, and CBD mocktails are always a huge hit.

Unique Wedding Send-Offs
Whether walking down the aisle as a married couple or exiting your reception, put a twist on tradition and go out in style. Instead of tossing rice or lighting sparklers, think dreamy bubbles, biodegradable confetti, or our favorite, colored smoke sticks. Not only do they create instagrammable moments, but these send-offs will be as magical for you as they are for your guests.

Diverse Wedding Parties

Many couples have stopped conforming to the tradition of gender-exclusive bridesmaids and groomsmen. Instead, they are choosing the people closest to them, irrespective of gender, to stand by them on their big day.

Pampas Grass
For brides who crave non-traditional blooms and a neutral palette, pampas grass is the perfect addition to your celebration. This plant complements both romantic and boho décor, and you can find it in colors ranging from crisp white and warm cream to a soft pink hue.

That rounds out our favorite 2019 wedding trends. We love planning weddings that simultaneously reflect our clients and amaze their guests. We’re already having so much fun incorporating these fantastic designs details into this year’s IAE events - we hope you are too!
