Quirkiest wedding trends for 2019

Wedding trends are changing all the time. From colours to cakes and dresses to discos, all wedding elements are influenced by new and exciting trends. If you want incorporate the latest fashions into your wedding, but are also looking for something a little different for your big day, choosing a few quirky trends could be the perfect solution. Here are some of our favourite off the wall fashions for 2019 to get you started.

Dried flowers

Although dried flowers may not be the first things that spring to mind when you think of wedding bouquets, they’re an increasingly popular option for brides looking for something a little bit different. As well as being long lasting – you don’t need to worry about dried flowers wilting in the heat of your marquee – dried blooms can be really beautiful. Often available in a range of pastel tones and muted shades, dried flowers come in a huge variety of different shapes and sizes.

Straw hats

If you’re getting married in the midsummer heat, a hat will help to protect you from the worst of the sun and prevent your cheeks from reddening in the warm weather. Instead of choosing hats that blends in with their wedding outfits, more and more quirky brides are opting for oversized straw headwear instead. The perfect choice for a country summer wedding, wide-brimmed straw hats make a real style statement. As well as looking good, this practical headwear option is a great way to protect yourself from the sun while you’re outside having fun.


We’ve seen a lot of colour trends come and go in the last few years. One of the newest shades on the block is rust. As @junebugweddings says, “Not-quite-burgundy, not-quite orange, the nuanced hue fits right in with two major influences on weddings this year: retro styling and desert vibes.” Use rust accents in the accessories on your wedding outfit, your centrepieces and the décor in your venue for a fantastic on trend look.

Festival line up

If you and your partner can’t decide between a band, a DJ and a string quartet, this fun trend could be the perfect solution. More and more couples are opting to turn their wedding into a real celebration by creating a festival-style line up for their big day. This works especially well if most of your reception is taking place outside, however it can also be used to great effect in interior venues. Choose a lively and fun act as your headliners to make sure your celebration goes out with a bang.

Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to let your quirks hang out and create an event that reflects your personality. Get more unique weddings ideas by taking a look around our site or getting in touch with a member of our team.
