6 Best Wedding Style Trends You Need to Know

When you begin planning your wedding, the immense range of options available can be overwhelming and it’s hard to know where to start, so we asked AVPartners Wedding Stylist, Mallory, at Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort for the hottest trends in styling and theming.

Mallory’s advice is to think about who you are as a couple when considering wedding styling and incorporate elements that complement your personalities and your vision for your life ahead.

With that in mind, here are 6 stunning wedding style trends to inspire your dream day.

#1 Dried Flowers

Dried flowers and grasses are huge this season; from delicate strands tucked in napkins, to elaborate and luxurious wall features and suspended wreaths. This chic bohemian style can incorporate grasses, wheat, dried leaves, green foliage and florals, adding texture and dimension to any setting. Brides also love that these stunning creations are keepsakes they can take home and treasure forever.

#2 Classic White

In 2019, we’ve seen a shift towards elegant, classic wedding styling. Think crisp white linen; white flowing chiffon down the aisle, looped on arbours and woven overhead; and timeless florals of roses and delicate buds with rich green foliage. Finish this everlasting sophisticated style with white and classic decor: wishing wells, understated table centrepieces, crystal glassware and candlelight.

#3 Greenery

Luscious greenery and foliage are transforming weddings into glorious gardens and rainforests this season. One approach to the style incorporates tropical palm fronds and rich leaves accentuated by touches of wood, festoons and fresh pineapples; another includes incredible green walls as a backdrop for ceremonies or behind the bridal table instead of traditional linen backdrops.

#4 Tipi Weddings

Tipi weddings have been in vogue for a while now, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down! These incredible structures are versatile and can be set up in a variety of locations in multiple configurations. From an intimate single tipi on the sand of the lagoon to multiple tipis for a grand affair, tipi weddings can cater for small to very large receptions. Offering overhead protection while enjoying the balmy night air, tipis can be styled for sit-down dinners, or more relaxed with floor and bar seating and lounges. Whichever way you decide, tipi weddings offer a truly memorable experience.

#5 Neon and Festoon signs

These larger-than-life signs are very versatile, adding a bright pop of festivity to your day. Neon and festoon signs can be used in a variety of settings: out on the grass, hung in a tipi above the bridal table or by the dancefloor.

#6 Timber Accents

From long communal dining tables and bench seats, grazing tables, outdoor furniture and games, personalised place settings and centrepieces, timber adds enchanting impact. These touches are a return to natural elements, bringing earthy tones and woodsy scents. Timber accents work beautifully with tipi weddings and other outdoor reception styles that can incorporate festoon lighting and gorgeous florals.
