Being on the front end of a trend can be both totally exciting and a little daunting. Will it stand the test of time? Will it look as good as you imagine? We get it. And that’s why we look to the pros to show you how it’s done!
This boho-glam shoot took place at Wilderness Weddings in Kent, a dreamy venue on a 600-acre farm in the UK. For the design, Butler and White incorporated some of 2019’s most popular wedding trends to build a day that’s FILLED with creative ideas + inspiration. (By the way, if you’re a photographer looking to build your portfolio and learn a few things about styled shoots, we’ve come to expect GREAT things from Wild Ones, the hosts behind this day!)
Let’s have a look at how the top trends came together, all captured by Emma Hill Film & Photography!
Fashion Trend: Bridesmaids in Silk Slip Dresses
It’s sleek, it’s sultry, and you can find a dreamy slip dress at several different price points. The silky movement looks SO good in photos and makes for an elegant yet relaxed look. Here are a few of our favorite slip dresses for bridesmaids:
Meanwhile, the gents suited up in classic looks from Moss Bros!
Color Trend: Burnt Sienna
And let’s talk about dark orange/burnt sienna/rust—whatever you call it, we LOVE it.

Decor Trend: Pampas Grass
The neutral-golden tones of the floral designs by Sass Flower brought the day to life! We’re definitely still feeling the pampas grass trend and all its versatile ways, especially in a ceremony space.

Floral Trend: Dried Textures
Dried florals are a top trend that we love for MANY reasons. It’s a sustainable way to give old blooms new life and it looks good.
Decor Trend: Teepees + Tents
This naked teepee from Apache Events made for the dreamiest lounge! Whether covered or not, teepees + tents are popping up around outdoor weddings and we’re diggin’ the boho feel.

Food Trend: Grazing Tables
It’s the food trend we can’t get enough of! This grazing table by Grape and Fig made for a perfect cocktail-hour spread.

Decor Trend: Mixing Natural Textures
Nature will forever be a top decor trend. What’s new is how designers are incorporating new textures like dried florals and earthy elements. Clays, fibers, feathers, gems, linens—so much to work with!

Fashion Trend: Second Look for the Groom
A reception look for brides is a given (if it’s something you want to do, of course), but what about the gents? We love the idea of taking on a more relaxed vibe for the reception—especially if you’re planning a fancy ceremony.

Forever Trend: True Love + Golden Hour = Magic
It’s true. Nothing makes for better photos than golden hour! Something to keep in mind when you’re mapping out your wedding day. Chat with your photographer to make sure you won’t miss the magic!
