2019 Wedding Trends to Avoid

Naked Cakes

Naked cakes became really trendy with rustic wedding themes. We’re seeing them everywhere now. Naked cakes are too casual for elegant weddings. They just look unfinished, which, in a sense, they are supposed to be. Naked cakes also lack extra frosting causing the cake to prematurely dry out as well.

Oversized or Overcrowded Bridal Bouquets

Oversized bridal bouquets can look sloppy and be too big to hold and still look elegant. Smaller overcrowded bouquets look jam-packed and too compact. For a more elegant look, choose a loose and natural style with movement or a simple and refined arrangement.

Everything Overly Monogrammed

Using a monogram is classy and elegant. Overusing a monogram looks too repetitive. Avoid putting your monogram everywhere and on everything. Use your monogram sparingly, like on your wedding invites and cocktail napkins. Don’t make it the focal point of your decor and design elements.

Family Style Reception Meal

Having a family style meal for your rehearsal dinner is great. However, it can create problems for your reception meal. Large platters of food will overly crowd the table. This leaves very little room for your centerpieces. Furthermore, your wedding guests will be all dressed up in their fancy clothes. Don’t make them lift and pass food platters around the table to avoid a spill or accident.
