We personally cannot wait for 2019; with so many amazing trends which lend themselves so perfectly to bohemian dry-hire and outdoor weddings, couples will be quite literally spoilt for choice. And we cannot wait to see how some of these big-hitting trends fit into people’s special day.
Here at Wed in The Wild, we aim to bring only the best inspiration to you, which is why we have collated all of our favourite trends into one insane top trend list…
Fast becoming a show-stopping feature at weddings and events, Australasian-style grazing is set to grow even more in 2019. Gone are the days of afternoon tea and beige buffets, theses insane works of art add colour, texture and taste to your big day.
And whether you want to include an iconic grazer instead of canapés, or have it replace your wedding breakfast or evening banquet, there is only really one company in the UK that you should be contacting…Grape & Fig.
Dried Flowers & Foliage
As much as we love flowers in any form, we are loving the textures that dried flowers bring to the table; especially big palms and grasses. Mix dried flowers with fresh flowers to create a gorgeous contrast, or go all out and utilise just dried flowers in your bouquet, ceremony arch or flower crown.
Be sure to speak to your florist well in advance for the possibilities available to you for your wedding date.
Some say that stationery is a waste of money, but we beg to differ. It may be paper, but there is a world of opportunity available, especially if you opt for a bespoke design. Illustrated stationery is on the rise as more and more couples understand the importance of a good stationery suite, and how the right design can set the tone for your whole day.
Why not ask your stationer to include an illustration personal to you, like your wedding venue, parts of your decor, a portrait of you both or even a map detailing your wedding day and all it’s little details.
In a world which is under threat from pollution and global warming, many couples are interested in how they can ensure their wedding is more eco-friendly and ethical.
There are so many ways you can help; from choosing to hire rather than buy, choosing second hand or reclaimed over new, utilising small businesses over mass-production large-scale companies, utilising bio-degradable cutlery and crockery, and of course, ensuring all waste is recycled at the end of your day.
Anthology Vintage Hire has all the reclaimed/vintage furniture you need for your day.

OK, so backdrops aren’t anything new, but over the past couple of years we’ve seen a huge rise in big-ass statement backdrops in bohemian weddings. And this year has seen a sharp incline in wooden and multi-textural backdrops in particular…a trend we see continuing into 2019.
From geometric and tribal patterns, to swathes of hand-dyed linens, tassels, macrame and beading, make a statement backdrop part of your big day and give your guests an altar to really talk about!
Big Jewellery and Crowns
When we say big…we mean big. Gone are the days of flower crowns…there we said it…statement jewellery is set to be all the range for 2019 and beyond.
From earrings and rings to intricate, mind-blowing crowns, there are some amazing brands, like Verbena Madrid and Opal Milk, which are paving the way for beautiful statement bridal jewellery that is different to the usual stuff you see on ASOS.
