Today's couples find an increasingly creative way to personalize their wedding day.
Ahead of the engagement season, WeddingWire has compiled some of the biggest trends that you might see when your loved ones get married in 2019.
Next year, many couples will continue the marriage tradition for almost every aspect of their big day, exchange flower arrangements in vases for flower installations, choose more unique ways to display food, and combine fabrics like velvet in their decorations.
From an interactive food station where guests can customize snacks for up to two pieces of wedding dresses, this is a wedding that might look like next year.
Starting with bridal wear, hope to see lots of spots.
