London – VIJAY SHAH
Global wedding events association International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning (IAWEP) has released its fifth annual ‘International Wedding Trend Report’ highlighting the hottest new trends for weddings this year as well as the essential statistics on the wedding planning industry according to experts in the field, journalism.co.uk reports.
The hundred experts who lent their observations to the report include household industry names such as Colin Cowie and Mindy Weiss and the document covers many of the upcoming wedding trends making their mark in 2019 in the UK and Europe, North America, Australasia, South East Asia and the GCC region. Overall, there is an increasing trend towards ‘eco-conscious’ weddings that minimise the use of plastics and other environmentally unfriendly materials.
In announcing the free public release of the report, the IAWEP’s chief executive officer, Kylie Carlson said in a press release from the association: “The International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning is a global leader of continuing education in the weddings and events industry,’
“Our connection to industry experts around the world provides us with the unique opportunity to invest in researching and revealing worldwide wedding trends. Each year offers new and exciting styles and designs, and we’re thrilled to share that 2019 has a lot in store.”
Among the highlights covered in the International Wedding Trend Report will be the rise of new colour trends and floral arrangement choices among brides and grooms-to-be, as well as trends in centrepiece and table layouts.
More couples are opting for sharing foods and buffets over traditional plated assemblies, they increasingly want to capture the memories of their big day as videos and animated images such as GIFs, rather than the classic shoot with a wedding photographer, and more people are opting for holding their weddings on Fridays and Sundays, rather than the usual Saturday, the report states. The report can be accessed via this link. Highlights from the Report can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLYtFv57ag0
