Less than 3 months until Christmas!!! Wow this year has flown by fast! If, like us, you can't wait to see what wedding trends and styles become the hot new trends of 2019 we've put together a list just for you; so you can be ahead of the curve!
1. 'Practical' dresses
Modern brides are both savvy & practical, opting for functional dresses over more traditional flowy designs. This trend has also brought exciting designs to the fray such as dresses that can effortlessly transcend from ceremony to party! We say the less time spent in the changing room and the more time spent on the dance floor the better! Brides of 2019 may also take gown inspiration from The Duchess of Sussex who opted for a simple silk fabric for her Givenchy dress unlike the heavily-laced counterparts that have reined supreme on the gown circuit in previous years.
2. Colour, colour everywhere!
Moving away from conventional whites and creams, reds, pinks and even oranges are set to take a starring role in everything from floral arrangements to bridesmaid dresses. Metallic wedding dresses are also on the horizon (Wow!) meaning bold, brassy and literally golden gowns could soon be 'the thing'... we can't wait to see what designers do with these colours & styles!
3. 'Conscious' Ceremonies
This is one we're right behind! Sustainability is more than just a fashion trend and the wedding industry is taking notice. Expect a rise in eco-friendly occasions, featuring flowers that can be replanted, organic menus and minimal plastic. The surge of 'conscious ceremonies' has been spearheaded by Princess Eugenie, who recently revealed that her impending nuptials to Jack Brooksbank will be entirely free from plastic. Yes Princess!!!
4. Technologic weddings
Video-mapping and drones may sound like something more suited to a science fiction film than a wedding, but such technologies are already infiltrating the matrimonial sphere, with some couples employing drones to take memorable snaps of their big day from a great height while using an array of other advanced technologies to capture the experience on video. It's all about getting the right shot for the 'gram!
5. Engagement Moons
The married couples of tomorrow may shun traditional honeymoons and opt for engagement moons instead, says Shephard, choosing to go away together prior to the wedding itself as opposed to afterwards. This is primarily because, as we all know, weddings are expensive and a person's pockets may be feeling a little empty after splashing out on the day itself. Hence the desire to plan a trip sooner, whilst the piggy bank is still looking healthy!

Looking for a beautiful wedding theme this year? Look no further than the Bohemian trend thats been sweeping the wedding industry for the last few years. Not sure what that is? Well if you Google the definition of Bohemian and you get this:
"Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic or literary pursuits. In this context, Bohemians can be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds."
So how can we translate this to the wedding industry? Well for us boho wedding is an rustic affair with a relaxed carefree attitude. Quirky and creative styles are adopted, resulting in a fantastic mix of eras, styles and tastes.
Whatever your setting - beach, woodland, a festival style field or a cool & quirky adventure, often the destination has one thing in common nature and being natural.
First let's explore the dress options! Think flong, flowy & quirky. A Boho bride is an unfussy bride!
Next on the list; Hair! One of the key looks for a Boho bride is the hair, it should scream effortless & carefree. Think pretty messed up waves, loose plaits, fishtail braids and braided hair crowns.
Flower & decorative crowns are a huge bridal trend right now and very bohemian. Our Katya Headpiece (available for only £50 per hire) is the perfect option!
Staying with flowers, create a boho look and feel for your wedding by going wild! Yes, mismatching wild flowers in an array of eclectic jars and receptacles look gorgeous and are incredibly boho! Your bouquet should be unstructured and loose.
When it comes to styling your big boho day, think of nature. For an authentic boho look use materials like feathers, wood, lace, ribbons, DIY Jars and bottles. Mismatching crockery and furniture will pull the whole look together.
We absolutely love the boho look and many of our items translate perfectly to this theme and the plants & flowers we grow on our allotment make rich pickings for you budding boho brides.

One of the latest items added to our ever-growing stock is this gorgeous headpiece made by one of my favourite designers; Debbie Carlisle.
Described on her website as "absolutely stunning paired with a long flowing simple tulle veil pinned at the back of the head", when I first saw it I knew it would be the perfect addition to my items. Perfect for a wedding day or to add a touch of glamour to any photo-shoot or party this piece will surely be the centre of attention.
The Katya headpiece is intricately woven using a total of 12 metres of wire and hundreds of individual faceted crystals. The piece also uses beautiful carved mother of pearl flowers for a truly special show-stopping look! But, despite it's obvious glamour it still maintains a classy and elegant looks thanks to it's open weave and not 'over-the-top' colouring.
Having been a big fan of Debbie's for a long time I couldn't wait to bring one of her gorgeous items to lucky brides on the south coast of England, and Brighton & Hove in particular. The item can be worn in a variety of ways, as pictured, or paired with a veil to blow your partner away on the big day!
Since arriving with us it's been hired a number of times and as such I've seen it worn in a variety of ways for a vast array of different ceremonies and it's never failed to look truly stunning.
At just under £500 this item would be an expensive one to own personally, but with us you can hire this statement piece from only £50 per hire! Click HERE to view this item, and others available for hire from us.
