Did you know that Christmas is the most popular time for marriage proposals? For many, that means a 2020 date. What are the 2020 wedding trends that will be popping up in the coming spring, summer, and fall?
Earlier weddings and brunch foods have been trending for a while, so they’ll most likely be included in 2020 wedding trends. Expect to see design-your-own omelet stations, bacon, lots of fresh mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and breakfast-y treats like doughnuts and waffles.
In the past, it used to be very hard for vegetarian or vegan couples to get the food they really wanted. Even if they themselves didn’t have a specific diet, couples would often feel like they were leaving out the guests they did. As the number of people going vegetarian or vegan increased over the years, companies have taken notice, so it’s easier to find really good plant-based options.
According to The Knot, they expect to see a lot of spiritual and magical elements in many weddings. This includes crystals, tarot readings, sage rituals, and more. At least in America, more people are feeling more spiritual, if not traditionally “religious.” This explains why more couples want to mark their wedding with something deeply meaningful to them that doesn’t necessarily fit into the mold of a classic “church” wedding.
Let there be light
Really good lighting is essential to creating ambiance and for cool photos. Couples have been incorporating all kinds of light-central decor, such as LED bars, hanging candles, glowing letters, and more. That trend is likely to continue as couples become aware of it as an option.
Sustainable living is a big trend these days and it’s carrying over into weddings. There are lots of ways to “green up” the event, such as keeping the guest list really small, finding recycled objects for decor, and asking for gifts to charity instead of presents. Being more sustainable is also appealing to many couples because it can keep costs down.
Classic with a twist
Retro and vintage always have a place in events like weddings, and in 2020, lots of couples will be embracing the classic, but with a twist. Expect to see details like dried flowers, ribbons, and classic patterns mixed with more modern design elements. It’s a great way to recognize the phrase “something old, something new” into the big day.
Flowers won’t just be dried in 2020 wedding trends and they won’t just be in the form of bouquets, either. Wedding experts expect to see more creative uses of flowers, such as edible flowers frozen into ice cubes for unique drinks and “color-blocked” flowers.
For years, weddings have been all about the bride and the dress. However, grooms are finally starting to open up a bit more and get more creative with their suits, as well. Sometimes it’s as simple as choosing unique, statement footwear or going all out with a bold suit color.
Speaking of color, what are some you can expect to see incorporated into 2020 wedding trends? There will probably be a lot of shades of blues and greens, reflecting places in nature like the ocean and green hills. Pastels have also been trendy for a while, and will continue into the new year. Depending on the season, “in” colors can vary slightly.
