Happy New Year! We're looking forward to another year of beautiful Weddings and many more celebrations of love. 2019 is going to bring so many fabulous wedding trends to New England weddings. Here's a look at just a few:

Statement Cakes and Nontraditional Desserts

Bold colors, flavors and designs will replace traditional wedding cakes this year. The standard cake stand will take a back seat to more exciting presentations, like this magical cake swing.

Donuts will continue to be a requested dessert item for New England weddings in 2019, particularly for rustic weddings. They'll be presented in more creative ways, such as with a fresh glass of local organic milk, as wedding favors, or miniature donuts on top of bold wedding cakes.

Macarons are such a great choice for weddings because they're fun, tasty, and super Instagram worthy. They're completely customizable, with endless options for flavors and colors.

Joyce's Pies

Cupcakes continue to be a big hit at weddings, and displays will vary from rustic milk crates to ultraluxe, over-the-top presentations.

Dramatic altars and florals

Macrame altars had a big moment in 2018. This trend will continue throughout 2019, especially when paired with elements of nature in outdoor weddings.

Drone Photography

Drone photography will be hotter than ever in 2019. Did you see that stunning footage from Priyanka and Nick's wedding?! Even if you won't have a 72 foot train like Priyanka, drone photos and video will give you a striking view of your special day. Capture unique shots of your venue, bridal party, first look, and ceremony.
