Are you planning a wedding in 2020? Whether your wedding is fast approaching or you’ve still many months before it arrives, there’s always time to get some inspiration for your big day. Here are some of the biggest 2020 wedding trends to help with your planning.
With the environment continuing to be a serious concern for people all around the world, it’s perhaps no surprise that sustainable weddings are a big trend right now.
If you want to be more sustainable, think green when planning your wedding. This is one trend that is likely to be around for a long time.
You could have a zero-waste policy in place at your wedding by using as many things as possible that can be reused and recycled, and you could reuse everything from your grandmother’s wedding ring to your mum’s wedding dress. Here are some more ideas:
● Create a menu with locally sourced seasonal food
● Use vendors who have a sustainable reputation
● Reduce or eliminate single use items
● Use paper straws for drinks
● For your wedding gifts, ask for a contribution towards a tree-planting scheme
Flowers play a major role at most weddings, but in 2020 they are taking on an entirely different role – they are being used not only as decoration but as food.
Yes, edible flowers are set to be a big trend during 2020. You can use them in the salad, sprinkle them on top of meals or add them to the snacks at the reception. They look very fancy, and they are sure to make a great talking point. They also add a lovely touch at a spring or summer wedding.
Many weddings turn out to be expensive for the guests when buying their own drinks after the meal. But in 2020, more couples are choosing to set up a self-service bar instead.
You could do this by setting up a wall-mounted dispenser and beer taps, or you could simply invest in a few kegs from a brewery and set them up outdoors – perfect for a relaxed country wedding. Alternatively, set up some pre-mixed cocktails ready to go, or fill up a few barrels with ice and beer bottles.
The only risk is that people might overindulge – but if your wedding crowd is likely to behave, self-service drinks could be a great option to create a relaxed party vibe that your guests will appreciate
While people have been providing a vegetarian option on the menu for years at weddings, in 2020, there is a growing trend to make the entire wedding meal veggie- and vegan-friendly.
This goes back to the growing focus on sustainable living, but also to the growth in popularity of veganism over the last few years. Also, there’s simply a lot of great vegan food out there, and it saves having to serve different meals to different guests.
Embroidered dresses have been fashionable since the end of 2018, and this is a trend that has been growing over the last year – and it’s going to be even bigger in 2020.
There is currently an embroidery boom, and wedding dresses are being adorned with lines of poetry, love letters and more. It adds a creative and personal touch and it’s a great way to really make your wedding dress unique.
There is always an “on-trend” trend, and in 2020 it’s mystical. Think crystals, palo santo, ‘perfume sticks’ and the like. Rose quartz crystal is the stone of love, so you could find a way to incorporate it. You might choose to add subtle mystical elements, rather than going all out, but it depends on your style.
The rose is back in 2020. Something like the rose never really goes out of fashion, but it is very much the flower of 2020 when it comes to weddings.
Previous years have been dominated by everything from succulents to lilies, but now the rose is taking centre stage once more. This classic symbol of romance is perfect for using in the decorations, but you can also use it in the bouquet.
