Happy New Year, lovelies! Did you get engaged over the holidays? Or perhaps a midnight kiss and proposal last night? Is 2019 your wedding year?

We’re so excited to celebrate all the new wedding dress trends, creative ideas, engagement stories, real weddings, honeymoon destinations & all the new things happening in the wedding world in 2019.

What am I most excited for? Well admittedly, I’m on my honeymoon right now (don’t worry, I’m lounging by the pool in Thailand) celebrating our new life as a married couple. We’re traveling for a bit (a long bit) and I’m looking forward to hitting up all the best honeymoon weather, month by month, as we extend our ‘eternal summer’ as long as possible.

It’s also my best friend Christina’s wedding this year – hurray! And not only do Jack and I get to celebrate her nuptials, so do you all, as she’s a regular writer here on Bridal Musings. A bridal stylist & talented musician, I can’t wait to have her share all of her rock and roll wedding plans – I’m imagining a bohemian Stevie Nicks bride queen.

For now, you can read a few of her advice columns as you shop for your wedding dress like when & when not to bustle your dress, choosing a wedding dress for your astrological sign & why you should consider wearing color on your wedding day (wait until you see the gowns she’s selected!)

We plan to share even more eco-friendly wedding tips, plenty of expert planning advice & I’ll be sharing my own wedding in Mexico very, very soon (you can read my Real Bride Diary from last year if you so please).

For now, I’ll let you get back to making your resolutions, celebrating the day with your love & maybe a little wedding planning? If you’re newly engaged, start here.

If you’re new here be sure to give us a follow on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter and feel free to shout out with any questions & ideas you may have for the coming year at Bridal Musings. Have a wedding or styled shoot to share with us? Find out how to submit your beautiful work here, we can’t wait to hear from you!
