Distinctive. Unique. Bold. Intentional. These are just a few of the words that come to mind when we look at some of the wedding trends that are rising up to be popular in 2020. If you are planning your big day for any time next year, then keep reading for some unique ideas that will make your wedding stand out and be uniquely you.
Trends come and go, and couples have been reinventing wedding traditions for decades. But, some of the things we found that brides are implementing more and more are just proof that individuality and personalized touches on the traditions are the way to go.
No Rules Wedding Dresses
Whether you’re the type of woman who knows exactly what she wants to wear on her wedding day, or the type who has absolutely no clue, this trend will work in your favor. Nontraditional gowns, colored gowns, two-piece sets, it all goes these days.
Sustainability in the Details
Sustainability is not just a trend as much as it is a way of life for those who are passionate about it. Decisions in the wedding planning like using recycled paper for invitations or making charitable donations in lieu of favors for guests are just a few ways you can bring an attitude of sustainability to your wedding day.
Floral Design Including Landscaping & Living Plants
This one definitely plays off of the sustainability trend, but is still mentionable in its own right. Using the pre-existing landscaping at your venue, or potted living plants to add to your floral design plan for your wedding not only saves you money, but is naturally more sustainable!
Curating an Atmosphere and Vibe Over A Strict Theme
Continuing on the theme of individuality and bringing uniqueness to your wedding, focusing on the atmosphere and vibe that your guests experience is a growing trend. Bright pops of color rather than a palette and mix-and-match centerpieces are just two examples of how you can play out this trend at your wedding.
Small, intimate gatherings are becoming more popular as couples start to focus more on the experience and memories of their wedding day than all the “should dos” and “have to’s”. When you shrink your guest list, your budget per guest goes up, there’s more wiggle room in the timeline for the celebration, and you can create a one-of-a-kind and special experience for your guests.
Not to mention that your venue options tend to widen when you have a smaller guest list.
What is a thoughtful menu? Something for everyone. You will have guests that may have allergies, dietary restrictions and preferences. Caterers and venues are getting more and more accommodating these days, so don’t look at this as a limitation, but an opportunity to get really creative with your menu!
Unique Lighting and Statement Installations
Going bold when it comes to decor is not new, but it is definitely picking up pace. Custom neon lights, acrylic signs, massive floral installs are just a few of the statement pieces we’ll be seeing at weddings in 2020. If this is something that you’re considering, then you definitely need to keep your desired installation in mind when you choose your venue.
Funky Table Layouts
Straight rows of tables are so last year! We are seeing a lot of creativity and ingenuity when it comes to table arrangements for the reception area. Whatever trend you do or don’t choose to use at your wedding, be sure to stay true to yourself. Letting your personality shine through all the little details at your wedding will make the day even more special for you and your guests.
