2019 Wedding Trends from the Experts

Wedding Planning Pampering

While a wedding in Nassau Paradise Island is as easy as a Bahamian breeze, we know that planning your wedding can get stressful. Enter the Bridal Subscription Box, a collection of wedding-themed gifts and inspiration mailed out monthly, to help brides prepare for their big day. According to Wedding Forward, one of the best out there is the Miss to Mrs Bridal Subscription Box—it’s the perfect monthly companion for the wedding planning journey.

Destination Inspired Invitations

When you choose a wedding destination as beautiful as Nassau Paradise Island, it’s important to show it off! The experts at Wedding Wire share that, “geography is an easy way to personalize a wedding stationery suite by showing where the wedding will be held, where the couple is from, or to share all the events over the wedding weekend.” This style of invitation not only brings The Bahamas to your guests from the very beginning but is a great way to showcase what the island has to offer during their stay.

Bahamian Welcome Boxes

The personalized wedding box is Circle of Love’s number one pick for 2019. With this one-of-a-kind welcome box, you can shower each guest in appreciation for attending your big day. These boxes should include personal notes, wedding details, and small gifts for guests to enjoy. When creating a Bahamian-inspired welcome box, be sure to include island favorites such as John Watling’s Rum, chocolate from Graycliff Chocolatier, and a wood carving or conch shell jewelry—all in a hand-woven straw basket from Nassau Straw Market.

Conscious Ceremonies

Sustainability is more than just a trend and the wedding industry is taking notice, so expect a rise in eco-friendly occasions. “From foam-free flower installations to wedding dresses that use ethical practices and wedding cakes made of locally sourced ingredients, the options for hosting an eco-conscious and ethical wedding are rising.” says Brides Magazine. One way to do this in Nassau Paradise Island is to choose locally-sourced foods for your wedding meal—not only is this an eco-friendly travel choice but a delicious one!

Trending Technology

In 2019, you can take your wedding to new heights with unique forms of photography and videography. The Knot recommends, “If you can fly under the radar (check local laws before take off), capture your outdoor wedding with a drone. The aerial shots offer a unique perspective of your celebration.” And with sandy beaches and turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, what a perspective it will be!

A New Take on Transportation

“Get ready for some new looks to getaway cars…we’ve seen them in the form of tricked-out canoes for camp-style, lakeside weddings, and couples on ski lifts, heading up the mountain with their ride or die by their side, and we only expect this trend to keep soaring from one season to the next.” says Wedding Chicks. From boats to horseback, this isn’t a hard trend to bring to life during your Nassau Paradise Island nuptials.
