Vancouver Wedding Trending Trends for 2019

One thing we didn't mention in our 2019 Vancouver wedding resources guide in December is that soon you may be able to plan your special day in a unique and exclusive location. City councillor Melissa De Genova wants to make it easier for couples to get married on the beautiful grounds that surround Vancouver's iconic city hall, and perhaps even in the council chamber.

Spring and wedding season are around the corner, and many couples are finding creative ways to plan a unique ceremony.

To help give you some ideas, here’s what the experts are saying are the key wedding themes for 2019 in Vancouver and across the country.

Key Wedding Trends for 2019

To get you started, WeddingWire has put together some of the biggest trends for weddings in 2019:

  • Weddings will feel and look more personalized and natural.

  • Brides will embrace polka dots and crop tops, while grooms will mix and match different fabrics and prints.

  • Guests will enjoy custom creations from interactive food stations and wedding favors that double as decor.

  • More and more couples will gravitate toward minimalist, yet bold aesthetics.

Speaking with Vancouver Magazine, event planners Aly Armstrong and Jessica Minnie provided some expert insight on what the latest bridal trends are in 2019. Certain wedding trends will stay behind in 2018, while others will pave the way into 2019.

New trends include:

  • Floral Explosion

  • Glamorous Dresses

  • Chic décor

According to WeddingWire, the biggest 2019 wedding trend of all is the idea of creating an event that feels personal, whether that includes following all the trends to a tee, or doing what feels right for you.

Vancouver Wedding Shows are a Rich Source for Trends

Typically held during the first three months of the year, bridal and wedding shows in Vancouver are also good ways to get an idea of what this year's trends are.

The FLEUR Wedding Show, held in Vancouver in January at the ultra-new and ultra-luxurious Parq Vancouver, provided some pointers on bridal trends for the coming wedding season.

The glamorous wedding show was produced by Aly Armstrong and featured immersive workshops, panel discussions, industry influencers, and an incredible fashion show. Get an idea of this seasons' hottest trends with this photo-packed recap of the show.

Speaking with the Vancouver Sun, Aly Armstrong, FLEUR’s creator and the founder had this bit advice for planning a wedding:

"At times, couples will try to save on costs by bringing in friends and family to do a job that should be left to professionals. For example: photography or flowers. I would not recommend enlisting the help of friends for either of these tasks — unless they’re experts in that field. It only causes more stress in the long run and can jeopardize the overall vision or end result."

Wedding Trends for 2019 Include a "Touch of Drama"

Aly Armstrong also says a "touch of drama" is a key trend for 2019.

“We’re seeing oversized bows incorporated into bridal gown designs," says Armstrong in an interview with the Vancouver Sun. "We’re also seeing a lot of sparkle and 3-D components like floral appliqué. The illusion neckline, as well as off-the-shoulder designs are what you can expect to see when shopping for wedding dresses."

Very Velvet

“Velvet is a great way to add a rich detail to your tablescape," says Armstrong, still speaking with the Vancouver Sun. "Expect to see velvet napkins and ribbon making their way to dinner tables across the globe.”

Less is More

“We’ve seen a lot of rustic weddings in the past two years," says Armstrong. "The trend is now moving toward a more minimalist and contemporary look. Mason jars and burlap are items of the past. You can still keep costs low by going the ‘less-is-more’ route.”

More Colour

There’s going to be a lot more colour coming through in 2019, according to Armstrong. She expects to see brighter and deeper colours going into 2019. While rose, gold and copper have been popular colour schemes, in 2019 we’re going back to the classic silver and gold.
