A new year, and what it may bring, is always an exciting thought. However, if you’ve picked up this magazine, chances are 2019 will a super-significant one. Congratulations! Getting hitched is not only a memorable time for you and your beloved, but also for your friends and family. Once the engagement excitement settles, it’s time to think about a date, a venue, and who will be by your side on the special day. If you opt for no bridal party – we love that!

Supermodel Karlie Kloss recently tied the knot with her beau Joshua Kushner at an intimate country ceremony. The beautiful bride chose a stunning custom-made Dior gown, featuring a fitted button-back bodice with long-sleeved lace overlay and a full skirt.

what’s popping up in 2019

1 Relaxed Food Much like how couples personalise the décor and style of their wedding, food is taking a turn towards reflecting a couple’s palate. We’re seeing many more relaxed reception celebrations that would seamlessly suit taco stands, seafood bars and dessert trucks. 2 Bright Flora Experts reckon that after years of muted flowers and foliage, pops of bright colour will make a comeback, with rich, bright-hued dahlias being hailed as the wedding flower for the year.

Celebrations that focus on the ceremony, rather than an afternoon-into-the-evening party, are fantastic for couples who want a personalised event that’s also cost-effective.…
