Top Wedding Trends 2019

Top Wedding Trends 2019

2018 offered us two Royal weddings, meaning that it felt like the year of weddings. However, here at Kamaara, we love a brand new year! It brings with it a fresh host of wedding trends, and 2019 is set to be a good one. If you’ve chosen this year to say your “I dos” and need a little #inspo for adding those finishing touches, today’s blog post is perfect for you. Here, we’ve rounded up the must-know top wedding trends for 2019.

Living Coral

With Pantone revealing its ‘Colour of the Year 2019’ as ‘Living Coral’, unsurprisingly, we’re expecting to see the hue effortlessly incorporated into weddings. The thing about this colour is that’s it’s refreshing, cheery and bright, and so perfect for spring/summer weddings. Go all out and choose this colour for your bridesmaid dresses.  Or nod to the trend via your flowers, offering an easy way to add a splash of colour to your wedding day.

Classic Style

One thing we learned from Meghan Markle is that simple, elegant dresses are a chic option. With the new Royal choosing a fitted, minimalist dress for her wedding, designers are following suit.  They’re creating gowns which are simplistic, yet gorgeous in their silhouette.

Embracing The Great Outdoors

Thankfully, we’re not talking about getting married outdoors, which would rarely work in this country. Instead, couples are choosing to bring the great outdoors inside, thanks to the simple addition of flowers and foliage, which are more on the organic side. Whether it’s a statement tree, floral arch or addition of greenery in finishing touches, we can’t wait to see the infusion of this wedding trend this year.

Extravagant Cakes

Last year definitely offered us a wealth of dramatic cakes and 2019’s mantra is the bigger the better. It’s all in the details, with metallics, personalised monogram toppers and elegant piping the order of the day. The emphasis is on a bespoke finish so get creative and choose a baker who can bring your vision to life.

Sharp Suits

While menswear might have taken a turn for the worse (wedding trainers, anyone?), we’re pleased to say that 2019 will reinstate sharp suits, with terrific tailoring at the focus. With brides spending so much on their dress, fashion-conscious men are set to give them a run for their money, by having their suits custom made. And if this is too extravagant for you, choose a good quality three-piece suit for the perfect finish.

Setting The Mood

Believe it or not, wedding scents are a real thing. Couples are choosing to set the mood for their wedding day by choosing candles, which reflect their personalities. Or, go a step further by having a signature scent made. Light these for your ceremony and set the tone for your day.

Illustrated Invitations

Wedding invites are one of the few forms of post we receive these days (or at least the most exciting). Couples are really going to town on this by commissioning hand illustrated designs, which are effortlessly cute.

Colourful Confetti

Colourful confetti gets a yes from us, if for nothing else but a spectacular photo and looks fantastic in slo-mo video. Your wedding day should be fun, which can be hard to portray in photos so this post-ceremony shot is an easy way to achieve this.

Things To Do When You Get Engaged

Things To Do When You Get Engaged

With the festive season comes an influx of new engagements. After you come back down to earth, you may find yourself wondering: “What happens next?”  Not sure where to start? Don’t panic! We’re here to help with this list of things to do as soon as you get engaged.

 

1. Spread the news

Before you begin sharing photos on Instagram or Facebook, there are a select group of people who would more than likely prefer to hear your news from you, rather than seeing it on a screen. Whether it’s your parents, siblings or close friends, tell them in person that you’ve just got engaged.  Before the social media status update.

2. Book a Manicure

Although it definitely isn’t necessary, many like to kick start their engagement by having a manicure. Besides, with all eyes on you – not to mention that ring, treating yourself to a manicure will keep your hands and nails in tip-top condition, perfect for ensuring your new bling is showcased to perfection.

3. Celebrate in style

Start the next chapter of your lives together by marking the occasion. Whether it’s a romantic hotel break with your fiancé, a family meal or a big engagement party, celebrate getting engaged in a way that suits your style.

4. Book an engagement shoot

A popular way to mark getting engaged is by booking an engagement shoot.  Before the chaos of wedding planning begins, this can be a lovely way to celebrate your love, with a beautiful set of prints that you can cherish together. Also, make sure to get a video shoot done of your engagement!  A great way to add to your wedding video and all your cherished memories of this time of your life.  Also, make it extra special, choose a location with sentimental value to you both.

5. Get your ring insured

A task that’s easy to neglect, but important none-the-less, getting your new ring insured will offer you peace of mind should anything unforeseen happen to it. Thankfully, adding your engagement ring to your home insurance policy is pretty easy and cheap.

6. Get your ring resized

And on that subject, if your other-half surprised you by choosing the ring himself, and it doesn’t fit you perfectly, have it resized by a professional jeweller to avoid the risk of it slipping off!

7. Enjoy it!

There’s no doubt that planning a wedding is a pretty big deal, and therefore it comes with its own stresses. So, before you get stuck in, allow yourself a few weeks off to enjoy your new engagement and enjoy it before the work begins.

8. Decide on a date

When you do begin planning, kick things off by looking at suitable dates. Remember, the most popular wedding venues often book up years in advance, so if you’re considering getting married in the next year or two, choose a few dates that work for you and your family so that you have options.

9. Get inspired

Deciding on what type of wedding day you want requires a little research, which thankfully, is a lot more fun than it suits. In the modern age of technology, there are a wealth of wedding planning apps at your fingertips. Plus, Pinterest and Instagram will offer you a wealth of #inspo. Finally, check out a few local wedding fairs.

10. Money talks

While it’s probably the least romantic part of wedding planning, it’s definitely the most important. Before you book a thing, decide on a budget and what you can spend on each element. Finally, stick to it so that you save yourself much heartache in the long run.

11. Choose your bride squad

A definite highlight of wedding planning, is getting to spend plenty of time with those closest to you, especially your bride squad. Choose your bridesmaids and ask them to be by your side in the lead up to the wedding and on the big day itself.

Are you engaged? Love every minute!

 
12. Revel in it!

Make sure you continue to revel in your engagement and soak up the romance of it all. There’s no denying that planning a wedding can be a stressful experience so don’t lose sight of why you’re doing it. Schedule date nights once a week and make it a wedding-talk free zone.

Wedding Dress Shopping?

Wedding Dress Shopping?

Wedding dress shopping tips to make the search for your dream dress a breeze!

For many brides, as soon they get engaged, one of the first things they turn their attention to is the search for that dream dress. Unless you’ve been married before, or have been a bridesmaid, you probably won’t really know much about what it involves. Thankfully, we’re here to help! Ensure you get your wedding dress shopping off to the perfect start thanks to our top tips for success.  Do also check out our fantastic range of ideas on our Pinterest Wedding Dresses Board.

Have A Budget and Stick To It

Before you hit the shops, have a price in mind, as this is one of the first things your bridal consultant will ask you. In fact, before you take on any aspect of wedding planning, determining your budget will help make the entire wedding planning experience a whole lot easier.

When it comes to your wedding dress budget, remember that this should include alterations, accessories such as your veil or headpiece, plus shoes and jewellery. Once you have a price point, stick to it, unless you are willing and able to save elsewhere.

Wedding Dress Shopping

Begin Your Search Early

Most bridal boutiques in Northern Ireland recommend you begin your search at least 12 months before your wedding. You’d be surprised by how long it takes to order a dress in. Then there’s fittings and alterations to consider too.

Find Your Style

A wedding dress really isn’t like anything you’ve ever worn before so research is vital to help give you a feel for what you like. With the world literally at our fingertips, thanks to the internet, finding some #weddingdressinspo has never been easier. Many brides will initially take to Pinterest, which is a great way to collate styles that catch your eye. If you find you are drawn to one particular silhouette or fabric, this should serve as a starting point when it comes to trying on dresses. You may also find one or two designers whose dresses make your heart flutter.  So it’s worth visiting bridal boutiques which stock a good number of their dresses.

wedding dress to suit your shape

Book Appointments

There are very few (if any) boutiques which will let you just turn up unannounced, so booking in advance is vital. Bring only a few key people with you as too many opinions can lead to chaos and confusion. Once you’ve determined a couple of dates which suit your #bridesquad, book a few appointments with boutiques. Why not make a day of it and treat yourselves to lunch too? Saturdays tend to be the busiest day at boutiques and go like gold dust.  So you’ll need to book well ahead, or consider a mid-week appointment if that suits.

Listen to your bridal consultant

You’d be surprised by the number of brides who tell me that they ended up choosing a dress which is the complete opposite to what they have in mind. Bridal consultants have a keen eye for fashion and they’ll take into account things such as your body shape, personal style and wedding venue to pick out some dresses which you wouldn’t have considered otherwise. The key is not to rule anything out.

buy a dress that suits your shape

Don’t buy a smaller size

Even if you plan on focusing on your health and fitness and dropping a few dress sizes before the wedding, resist temptation to buy a dress that’s too small now. No one needs that stress! Dressmakers are wizards and it’s amazing how much they can take a dress in. Plus, if you do plan to slim down (which we in no way endorse!), your overall body shape won’t change that much.  So buy your dress in your current size.

Don't buy a dress size too small

Examine The Small Print

When it comes to placing your order, go over the details with your consultant. Be clear on deposits and final balance due dates, make sure the measurements are correct and find out when it’s expected to arrive in store.

Bring Your Accessories To Your Fittings

Remember to wear nude, strapless underwear to all your bridal appointments in order to give you a better idea of the fit of your dress. When you return to the store for your fitting, bring along any accessories such as shoes and headpiece.  This will help you get an overall feel for how you’ll look on the day.

Go With Your Gut

Many brides just get a feeling when they try on a dress that it’s the one. While this won’t be the case for everyone, trust your instincts. If you can imagine wearing the dress on your wedding day, it’s a keeper.

wedding dress, the right one

Happy wedding dress planning!
