Trends 2019

Wedding Trends: Minimalist

As with a major shift in interior design that focuses on mid century modern furniture, the minimalist look is a trend to watch out for in 2019.  Characteristics of this style include a limited colour palette as well as natural elements like wood and stone. We also see florals with unique shapes and structure taking center stage.  

A wood table runner sets the stage for apothecary bottles with true blue eucalyptus.  The elements and principles of design are highlighted with this trend including line, shape, symmetry and repetition.  We have also included another trend to watch: velvet!

Spotlight: Ricarda’s Toronto - 134 Peter Street

This stunning venue was the perfect backdrop for a minimalist wedding.  Our apothecary bottles were once again filled with greens: sword and leather ferns.  Olive branches decorated the table. We worked with a limited colour palette including white roses with a wide variety of greenery.  Overall, the look is sleek and refined.

Looking to create a minimalist look in your home?
First step-clear the clutter! Pick one major focal point in each room and stick to colours and finishes that compliment each other.

Wedding Trends: Pocket Squares

We are absolutely IN LOVE with pocket squares!  This unique floral feature is so fun and different from traditional boutonnieres… and we hope this trend continues to grow!  Pocket squares differ from boutonnieres (traditionally pinned on the lapel of a jacket) in that the flowers are arranged to sit inside the suit pocket.  The result gives the illusion that the flowers are growing out of the pocket!

This style is great for individuals with allergies as the flowers sit lower on the jacket.  The pocket square is also a bit sturdier than a traditional boutonniere as it has more structure.  There is also less of a risk that guests will be pricked by boutonniere pins or crush the flowers.

Although we are big fans of pocket squares, it is important to make sure that this style fits with the aesthetic of your look and suit.  This look is definitely modern and chic!
