As the busy summer wedding season has drawn to a close, we take a look at the wedding trends for 2020. Contemporary minimalist looks are making their way in and the style coming through Is most definitely Less is more!
More recently we have seen the very exaggerated flower walls, tables decorated with floral waterfalls and even more opulent ceiling installations. However, the tide is changing and shifting more towards non-traditional floral design comprised of grass, pampas or wheat.
Due to the nations interest in sustainability and with the environment in mind, couples are turning more to locally sourced flowers.
Furthermore on the sustainability subject, there is a huge rise in vegan catering options for weddings. There are so many caterers now offering diverse and innovative botanical menus, it is becoming increasingly popular to offer this throughout wedding days.
Many couples are opting for Eco-friendly favours for 2020. Either by doing no favours at all and opting for guests to make donations to charities. Or, potted plants that not only look beautiful on your table-scape, but offer a lasting gift that your guests can remember your day by- for many years to come.
Bridal gowns with feathers are a huge wedding trend for 2020. Feathered gowns are a glamorous and feminine look that are taking the wedding runways by storm.
The traditional ceremony set up means that the bridal party and family are close by to the couple as they take their vows. However, others can feel quite distant from the action. So, a trend on the rise is the ceremonies ‘in the round’. This allows all guests to feel included in arguably the most relevant and important part of the day.
Similarly, many couples are now requesting a mobile phone free zone at their ceremonies. This not just allows exclusivity for the photographers, but it allows guests to be present in the moment.
There is a real artistic and fun style of cake design on trend at the moment. Think watercolour finishes and dripping icing. There is a real move away from the traditional cake style and a real sense of fun taking over.
Hand illustrated designs are a very popular choice for wedding invitations in 2020. Ever since Kate Middleton sketched the church for her sister Pippa’s order of service, brides are opting for this style. Commissioning someone to design your invites gives a very personal touch and gives guests a first taste of the wedding and what’s to come.
