2019 is sure to be an incredible year in the world of wedding stationery; we can expect to see beautiful styling reflected throughout a wide range of pieces. Here are just some of the trends set to inspire unforgettable 2019 wedding stationery.

Simple and Sophisticated

Simplicity is key for 2019, with many of our lovely customers opting for minimalist yet sophisticated designs. Many of these are predominantly white, showing that white weddings are as popular as ever. This is partly thanks to people taking inspiration from the royal weddings of 2018, but it’s also due to the rise of small, intimate weddings.

Nature

Many couples are choosing nature-inspired designs, with botanicals remaining a strong theme for 2019. Wedding stationery adorned with roses is a popular choice. However, lots of people are also choosing sunflowers, pairing it with rustic styling – a very widespread theme for the last few years. Foliage is gradually overtaking flowers, with more designs than ever featuring plants, particularly the on-trend eucalyptus.

Royal

Lots of 2019 couples are choosing regal designs – royal wedding fever isn’t dying out anytime soon. Designs with fancy swirls against neutral backgrounds are preferred by many – it’s a classic, timeless look. Likewise, elaborate fonts are also becoming more popular.

Bright

Colours are set to be a massive trend for 2019 weddings, and we can expect to see this through the stationery that people are choosing. The trend of blush pink is dying down, and many are choosing much brighter shades, taking inspiration from the 70s with shades of red, orange, and yellow. Likewise, the ‘Jewel Tones’ colour scheme is also rising in popularity, with many people choosing stationery in colours including shades of purple, pink, and green.

We are also seeing singular shades trending, including burgundy, and Pantone’s Colour of the Year, ‘Living Coral’.  These shades are perfect if you’re looking for something a little bit more eye-catching for your stationery.

Trends For An Autumn Wedding By Veritas

With Autumn well and truly here, it’s time to get to grips with this season’s bridal fashion and top jewellery trends. Our friends at Veritas Gift have been keeping a close eye on the recent bridal catwalks and have given their top trends that will be making waves this Autumn here on Bride Icon:

Forehead BandsBeginning with forehead bands, which were seen on every bridal catwalk at the bridal fashion shows – it seems they are here to stay!  An alternative to the veil – this season it’s all about adding an elegant and 20’s inspired twist with an embellished, lace headpiece. With so many different styles to try, it can enhance the vintage chic glamour look or perhaps go a little more subtle with a plain lace band.

Adding a hint of chic to the wedding outfit, it seems a choker style necklace is going to be a strong contender within bridal fashion this Autumn. Coming in many different shapes and styles, you can definitely find one to suit your taste, perhaps go a little more elegant with a silver band choker.

veritasStill a firm favorite on catwalks, delicate necklaces seem to always add some sophistication to a bridal outfit, bringing a certain elegance to the décolletage area. However, you may want to opt for perhaps a more luxurious diamond encrusted necklace which you can treasure for years to come.

 

VeritasPendants are always popular with brides, purely because they are a piece that can be kept and cherished.  Many pendants open up allowing to keep a photo inside, which of course, adds a very personal touch. Veritas gifts offer an array of beautifully crafted pendants in many different styles and colours- their acorn pendant is particularly a strong favorite with their clients.

Enamel jewellery has long been a favourite for many women who want to show off their individual style.  The enamel range of jewellery seems to be making its way slowly into bridal fashion.  There are many different designs and colors to choose from, with some popular options being enamel cuffs that add a touch of drama to a bridal look!  For more tips and jewellery designs see  www.veritasgifts.co.ukVeritas
