LA-based event planner Colin Cowie has organised weddings and parties for the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey and Kim Kardashian. He says:
"I’ve never been one to do trends— I’m much better at creating them. When you work around your client’s unique DNA, you end up with something unique that truly tells a story.
But, of course, being in the industry for as long as I have, I can quickly pick up on a few things we can expect to see in 2019: keep an eye out for the return of modern, minimalist looks; this year, less is more. Eco-friendly weddings will also be trending this year and, with that, the rise of vegan meal options. Finally, I’ve also begun to see many couples request limited phone use throughout their celebrations, keeping everyone present and unhidden by a phone screen.
Round ceremonies like this one [pictured] are something I’ve always enjoyed designing because they ensure friends and loved ones are no more than a few feet away from the couple, creating a more intimate atmosphere."
