Planning a wedding in 2020? If you’re the type of person who likes to keep up with the latest trends, you’ll need to know what’s happening in the world of weddings next year. Here’s 5 new wedding trends for 2020.
Green and Sustainable Weddings
Clean, green sustainability is a huge talking point in the world right now, and we expect to see this flowing over into wedding preparations. There’s a host of ways you can make your wedding sustainable, whether it be using eco-friendly catering supplies, sourcing all your stationery and decorations in an ethical manner. You can even share flowers or donate them to a worthy cause to ensure there is zero waste from your big day.
From pressed flower cakes to edible table decorations, this is becoming a big trend and we expect it to explode in 2020. There’s actually a huge leaning towards flowers in all parts of the wedding, and the same will apply to cakes. Not only do pressed flower cakes look amazing, they’re also delicious and take a step towards the clean, green sustainable wedding trend!
Smaller Weddings, Bigger Parties
Huge guest lists appear to be making way for a smaller number of guests to share your big day. This may coincide with the trend of destination weddings, but it’s also a way to ensure a more intimate experience with those especially close to you. It doesn’t even mean you need to trim you budget – it just means you can create a bigger, better party to share among less people.
Earthy colours are making a comeback, as are 70’s, hippy inspired wedding fashions. We expect to see more earthy tones in bridesmaids’ dresses, such as light brown and pale yellows and pinks. With large, natural flower arrangements making a comeback too, you can colour co-ordinate to the max.
A New Take on Catering
Up until now, many wedding catering services have done things their way. Similar menu types were the norm, because people loved them. Now, with such a higher level of people going meat-free or gluten-free, weddings hosts will need to take special steps to ensure the food can be enjoyed by everybody. Wedding caterers will be creating more inclusive menus in 2020.
