Even though there is something timeless and magical about going all-white, plenty of women in 2019 are considering getting rid of the idea that a bride should be dressed in white. Instead, future brides are choosing gowns in hues such as ivory, cream and eggshell. More daring women should definitely risk it and go for fashionable shades such as orchid, blush or chardonnay, as featured on popular bridal fashion week runways. Also, women are not the only ones who are experimenting with colours. Grooms are encouraged to try out suits which come in various colours ranging from bright pink to lime green!
When it comes to makeup, we could not agree more: Less makeup looks a lot more beautiful on a wedding day than a caked up face. For instance, take inspiration from none other than the stunning Meghan Markle who nailed the natural look on her big day when she married Prince Harry. Instead of a lot of heavy eye shadow and blush, focus more on the eyebrows and dewy skin. The natural look will have everyone staring. Minimalist makeup is definitely effortless yet stunning at the same time.
We only have one planet Earth, and we should take good care of it. One way to do this is by making sure that the main theme of the most beautiful day ever is sustainability. More and more couples who are planning to celebrate without causing harm to the environment. Luckily, there are plenty of eco-friendly alternative options to make sure that wedding waste is reduced or completely eliminated. For example, choose upcycled items and elements whenever possible. Opt for handpicked flowers or reusable tableware.
One of the most important elements at a wedding is the music. The right musician can be hard to find and sometimes unavailable for your date. Fortunately, there are companies that make the search for artists stress-free. For example, residents of Sydney can find talented artists for hire in Sydney. Also, one of the hottest trends at weddings is karaoke stands. When the musicians are taking a break, guests can grab the microphone and keep the party going!
A growing number of couples are travelling to exotic or unusual places for their big day. Usually, destination weddings require a bit more planning than the conventional ones. For example, couples need to keep in mind how their guests will get there as well as the accommodation. Popular destination wedding spots are Bali, Japan, Greece or any of the many Pacific islands.
In summary, do not feel obliged to stick to wedding traditions just for the sake of it. Instead, experiment a bit and think outside of the box.
