Plants and herbs are decorating tables.

Instead of traditional flowers, Ali Philips of Engaging Events by Ali in Chicago, shared that couples are still looking to include greenery in their reception décor, but are selecting something other than foliage. “Greenery in the form of plants and herbs in modern vessels are going to be decorating reception tables in 2019. White ceramic, black ceramic and wood boxes are some of the modern-style containers being used.”

Couples are choosing upgraded linens with lots of textures.

It’s not just plants, herbs and ceramic and wooden vessels that will enhance the look of wedding reception tables. For wedding trends in 2019, linens are going beyond basic white. “Instead of a solid color tablecloth and napkin, rental companies have a diverse selection of textured linens to choose from,” says Ali Philips of Engaging Events by Ali. Trimmed in lace, frayed edges and embellished with beads and ribbons are some of the distinctive ornaments to give linens an upgrade.

WEDDING DAY DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND

Marilyn Monroe certainly got it right when she performed her most famous song. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend — especially on her wedding day. However, choosing accessories for yourself and/or your bridal party can become a daunting task. Let New York Bride & Groom assist you on your search for the perfect necklace, earrings, bracelets (and more) to achieve your dream day look.

Before shopping, determine what piece of jewelry you are looking for and what kind of statement you want that piece to make. Many brides base this decision on their personality. If they are naturally dramatic or love being the center of attention, their accessories are often large, chunky statement pieces — like thick rhinestone chokers or opera length necklaces. More reserved and classic brides tend to gravitate toward modest drop earrings or delicate pieces like diamond bangle bracelets. Search for accessories that fit who you are and complete the look you wish to achieve on your day.

Cuts, styles and embellishment on dresses also play a role in choosing accessories. For example, if you have a high-cut neckline, or lots of sparkle on your dress already, many brides choose to go a more natural route and opt for classic diamond studs or small diamond chandelier earrings.

When in doubt, turn to Hollywood for some inspiration. Sure, the starlets have access to the world’s finest jewels, made by the world’s most fabulous jewelers, but you can get their look by shopping for similar styled items. Looking through pictures of the latest awards shows like the Oscars or Grammys can inspire you and also educate you on the current trends.

Actresses and performers set the bar high when it comes to accessories and you can too just by looking around a bit. Vendors such as Bel Aire Bridal have beautiful pieces. Notice that item number J2009 looks very similar to Mariska Hargitay’s stones.

Visit New York Bride & Groom to find the perfect jewelry for your special day. Because, square cut or pear shape — these rocks don’t lose their shape, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

Choosing the flowers for your wedding is a vital step in the process, one that you cannot avoid. That being said, it is crucial for the couple to be open to using different types of flowers for their wedding. This is because some flowers are seasonal and your first choice may not be available for your wedding date.

Luckily, there flowers available year-round. For instance, there are roses, carnations, hydrangeas, orchids, callas and so much more. Remember, the last thing you would want is to limit your options. That being said, it would also be useful for you to take flower seasons into consideration before setting an actual date for your big event.

Of course, the type of flower is one thing but there is also color that must be taken into account. Remember, like most things in nature, the colors of flowers are never really exact. However, you will want to pick the ones that best fit with your overall motif. That is why you should work closely with your florist so that they can help you better understand the specific undertones and the different flower varieties.

These are just two of the things you need to take into account when choosing wedding flowers.

A PLAN TO COMPLETE YOUR WEDDING DAY TASKS

If we asked: Has the run-up to your wedding day felt like everything has been set to fast-forward? We have no doubt you would respond with a resounding “Yes!” Life seems to move at double (triple?) speed when you’re trying to pull together all the details of the ceremony, the reception and the honeymoon. It starts to feel like every day is getting shorter and shorter the closer you get to the finish line.

We kind of hate to say it, but just wait — the day of the wedding will feel like time is moving at the speed of light. With so many details to be handled in those precious few hours immediately before, during and after your walk to the altar, you’ll need to have an extremely organized plan going in to pull it all off seamlessly.

Thankfully, the great folks at Wedding Ideas magazine have come through for you in a big way on this. More than just a plan for the wedding day, on their website they have published a fantastic timed schedule for doing practically everything you can think of that needs to be done. The itinerary begins five hours before the ceremony with some light breakfast suggestions and concludes with you and your husband’s exit from the reception nearly 15 hours later.

WEDDING DAY FUN WITH FEATHERS

“Sex and the City” fans will recall that infamous scene in the first feature film when Charlotte questions Carrie about the item in her hair. “It was a bird!” Carries cries, “I put a bird in my hair for him!” While you may not want to go as far as fashion forward Carrie went to look fabulous on her wedding day, feathers are definitely an accessory you can have fun with and make a fashionable statement.

Feathers are often worn in brides’ hair. Whether they are small and single, or used as an accent piece underneath a flower hair clip, they add texture, glamour and a modern appeal to a wedding day look. Feathers look great in textured and tousled hair — like corkscrew curls or loose waves, since the hair is already voluminous and in glamor girl mode. They also appear frequently attached to head bands. These feathery accessories are carried by designers that can be found at New York Bride & Groom.

Some brag-worthy hair accessories can be found in Bel Aire Bridal’s line. Style number 1951 is made up of roses, feathers and rose sprays that sit on a comb to be easily placed on your sculpted up-do. Another great feather accessory in the line is comb number 1956. It’s comprised of organza flower petals with feathers intermittently placed among them.

Feathers are also spotted on dresses. Some are adorned around the bride’s bust line, or gracefully fall off the shoulder line. It is also trendy to wear them lining the bottom portion of your dress to create fullness, drama and consistency.  Designer Maggie Soterro’s Kristen dress has a pretty feather and flower embellishment that sits strategically above the hip of the gown.

Think about letting the feathers fly on your wedding day — they are fun, flirty and fantastically fabulous!
