When it comes to acquiring styling tips, we only entrust it to the best in the wedding industry. With countless experiences in designing many brides' dream weddings, we have the Creative and Marketing Director from Designmill Co., Emilia Tjongkono to share her own prediction for 2019 wedding trends. Known for their bold, creative, conceptual, and elegant styling, the Bali-based wedding decorator is now exploring new designs and trying to formulate different approaches to wedding as a visual experience by drawing inspirations from outside wedding industry as well, including fashion, art, and design.
While most weddings in 2018 highlighted shades of lilac as it was Pantone's color of the year, Emilia shared how the trend in the upcoming year will surely change. The purplish hue won't completely go away, but it won't be the dominant shade anymore. On the other hand, natural elements are still widely favored, so don't hesitate to incorporate them to the setting, such as leaves, branches, and stones. Since Emilia also collected inspirations from the runway, it's no surprise how she predicted patterns that you'd usually see on clothing pieces, from tribal and ethnic to chinoiserie, or even plaid could be brought into your big day. Additionally, she's hopeful to have future brides integrating bold colors like black or maroon, in their wedding aesthetic.
We also get to discuss the most frequented request at traditional weddings these days, which is to infuse a combination of modern and not-so-feminine touches to the surrounding area. Apparently, there's no easier way to make the ambience more modern than placing an installation of mirrors, crystals, or marble elements as well as neater, cleaner flower arrangement in neutral tones. She also added, structural artistic elements will give the decoration a bit of an edge. Such a bit of bold color could transform your table setting to be more dimensional and standout. Additions of leaves and branches will exceptionally give an overall rustic-masculine vibe.
Always go with something classic, then find one or two features to make the wedding truly yours. This is such a useful tip to keep in mind if you are still deciding the wedding theme. Emilia further advised to prepare an inspiration board before collaborating with your preferred decorator, so that both people can come up with interesting details or personalized elements. "You have to know what you like and don't like first, then the brainstorm session can be more exciting and everything else would go smoother," she enclosed.
Now that you've seen their beautiful projects, don't forget to add your favorite images to the inspiration board!
