1. Small Budget-Friendly Weddings

There’s loads of tips on how to elope, and how to do it without offending family.
3. Sustainable Wedding Ideas
Brides in 2019 are woke. Massive celebrations always end up generating a ton of waste, so it’s of no surprise that eco-conscious brides are looking for ways to make their wedding celebrations zero-waste, or at the very least, eco-friendly. These sustainable wedding ideas are pretty Instagram-friendly too, with flower petals replacing confetti (because it’s biodegradable) for the wedding toss and opting for wedding favours that are less harmful to the environment (i.e: fresh flowers to bring home, personalised mason jars for drinks at the wedding, which the guests can also bring home after).
4. Gold Wedding Gowns
Want a little something different for your bridal gown? Instead of looking at the white dresses, why not opt for a gold gown? It’s super on-trend at the moment too!
5. Wedding Flower Garlands
Instead of standing floral displays, brides seem to be going for floral garlands more this year. It ranges from massive installations to little whimsical touches, but no matter the scale, flower garlands make for a very pretty Instagram op, both for the couple and their guests.
