We're fastly approaching spring and I can't wait for the warmer, brighter days ahead. I've been studying fashion and interior design trend predictions for 2019 as these always have a way of translating into the wedding industry.
Here are my personal top 5 wedding trend predictions for 2019...
1. Opulent Blooms
Dolce and Gabbana's Spring/Summer 2019 collection features a stunning set of florally frocks and accessories which I can see translating well into the world of weddings. Bold and dramatic shades of red, fuschia and purple look fantastic against black and gold accents such as cutlery and candlesticks.

2. Pampas Grass
I have to admit, I was somewhat surprised the first time I saw pampus grass featured in a wedding shoot but I quickly fell in love. Pampas works brilliantly for a bohemian vibe and can be used in many different ways, whether it be as a ceremony backdrop or floral arrangement. Perhaps a product of the concept of 'wabi sabi', the Japanese answer to 'finding the beauty in nature', pampus grass is an original addition to any bohemian wedding.

3. Cool Coral
Spring and Summer weddings this year will feature shades of coral following the announcement of Pantone's colour of the year, 'Living Coral'. This fun, vibrant colour will work beautifully with other zesty colours such as pinks, peaches and oranges to create an analogous colour palette. I can't wait to see a sea of coral coloured bridesmaid dresses and florals!

4. Bringing the outdoors in
Foilage was huge in 2018 and that trend is set to evolve in 2019 with the use of real and artificial trees. Foliage and greenary is a fantastic way to create a whimsical feel, and can work particuarly well with high ceilings to give the illusion of a more intimate setting.

5. Eco concious weddings
This year, more couples than ever before will consider the environmental impact of hosting their wedding. I've come across some chic alternatives for dinnerware and seen some beautiful examples of using natural resources wherever possible, whilst keeping aesthetics in mind. Prince and Meghan's wedding last year pathed the way, using foam-free flower installations.
