Wedding Trends You Need To Know About In 2018
#TheLIST: The Top Bridal Trends of 2019
Peekaboo panels, sheer slits and allover illusion dominated the Fall 2019 bridal runways, and most of the standouts showed off long legs and toned arms without feeling too bare for bridal. Strategically placed tulle, lace and gossamer mesh made all-covered up styles feel weightless, and see-through skirts are the best way to show off killer heels.

There should be no shock here, but yes–you can wear black with your white gown. Opting for an eternally chic black evening shoe, clutch, a black diamond necklace or modern pair of drops ensures you'll be sporting your bridal accessories long after your wedding day.

While your friends always appreciate the honor of being a bridesmaid, they'll appreciate being able to wear what they'd like even more. Forgo a traditional American bridal party and take inspiration from the chicest of bridal Brits; Kate Moss and Kate Middleton both opted for a maid of honor and an entourage of perfectly styled girls and page boys.
Florals reminiscent of Dutch masters' still-life paintings continue to reign supreme over tight, modern bouquets and over the top arrangements. Rich and wild without feeling too bohemian, these painterly centerpieces and bouquets typically incorporate vibrantly colored fruit and fluttery blooms like peonies, ranunculus, anemones and dahlias. The best part? Dutch-inspired blooms can be translated into any palette, from pastels to deep jewel tones. Florists that have mastered this style include Putnam & Putnam (who designed this rose-colored beauty), Saipua and Studio Choo.
The styles of decades-past, from the jazz age to the '70s, have long been a source of wedding day inspiration. But, for the 2019 collections, designers went even further back in time, taking inspiration from the the Edwardian (and occasionally, the Georgian and Victorian) age. Mock necklines, ruffle details, bell sleeves, empire waistlines, and slim sheaths that spill into chapel-length trains were some of the key indicators that this era was on the rise. Intricate metalwork, medieval motifs and colored stones popping up in the season's engagement rings rounded out these modern takes on vintage.

Oversized, trailing bouquets had their moment, but a small clutch of blooms won't overpower your gown in photos or as you walk down the aisle. The Duchess of Cambridge carried a small spray of Lily of the Valley down the aisle at Westminster Abbey, and nosegays of wildflowers, herbs, single blooms or the bride's favorite buds are sure to making an appearance more and more in 2019. Fun fact: nosegays are also a great way to distribute your floral budget wisely, leaving the bulk of your spend for your décor and centerpieces.
Don't feel like your friends are holding out on you if they don't pick up the phone the moment their fiancé pops the question. Odds are your friend is just on her Proposalmoon, where couples opt to keep their engagement to themselves for a few days, a week or longer prior to announcing it to family, friends and their social feeds. On this mini-moon, your newly-engaged world is your oyster: enjoy the vacation you got engaged on with little to no interruption, spend a staycation weekend at home savoring the moment, or simply go on a romantic date before the engagement announcing phone-a-thon ensues.

Sweets may not be your thing, or you might just prefer to have your guests spend the night dancing with champagne in hand rather than stopping the party for a final course. Either way, the ceremony of cutting the cake is not a requirement, and couples looking for something a bit different can now feel free to choose a cheese course (we recommend an elaborate cheese table packed with assorted candied nuts, jams, pate de fruit and honeys) or passed bite-size desserts on the dance floor. Looking for something a bit more playful? Give your guests the opportunity to make their own s'mores at an outdoor affair, or opt for an ice-cream cart or artisanal popsicles in the summertime.
Take a note from the beauty looks that walked the Spring 2019 runways and embrace the fourth of your bridal somethings in eyeshadow. Go for a thin indigo liner for a modern take, or pay homage to Studio 54 with a blended shadow. Check out the go-to products for 'something blue' eyes here.

Tiered skirts, dramatic flamenco-esque skirts, vibrantly-colored hair flowers and macramé lacework were only some of the Spanish influences on the Fall 2019 bridal collections. Long lace sleeves and mantilla veils were among some of our favorite ways this inspiration appeared, and a bride's ability to embrace the look in small or large doses–from a single bold bloom in her hair to an all-over corded lace look–put this trend on our short list.

Quirky, playful accessories like petite crystal tiaras and gilded crowns are a contemporary upgrade on the dated tiaras of the '80s. While these headpieces are a sweet alternative or accompaniment to a veil, they also make for a super-luxe add-on when styling your second look for the reception or after party.
