10 of the Biggest Wedding Trends

Save the date, favors, place cards, bouquets, wedding cakes and so on: long, very long the list of things to which the couple must think! Having an idea for the wedding mood is already a starting point before pronouncing the fateful “I do”. What are the trends for the 2020 season?

Flower Clouds

The latest latest floating flowers taking the flower and wedding world by storm are flower clouds. A twist on the hanging flower installations we’ve seen over the last while which hang downwards or take over an entire ceiling, flower clouds hover above the heads of your guests in a perfect cloud formation that appears to be floating. We’re big fans of this new trend and can’t wait to see flower clouds coming through in our real weddings!

Animal Inspiration

They’re part of the family, so it’s no surprise that pets have earned a special place in many couples’ big days. Not only can you plan on seeing dogs in the wedding party, but prepare to receive pet-themed invitations, sip on pet-inspired signature cocktails and pose for pet-centered photos. (Couples, just make sure your venue loves animals as much as you do!)

Dramatic Veils

Chalk it up to Meghan Markle’s 16-foot stunner at her royal wedding, but cathedral and chapel-length veils have made a serious comeback. The dramatic floor-sweeping silhouette works both ways, complementing voluminous ballgowns or adding drama to minimalist sheaths. Pearl, crystal or lace embellishments only amplify the effect. Top it off with another trending bridal accessory: the statement headband.

Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses

With large bridal parties the new norm, most weddings now showcase a variety of styles up at the altar. Not only do many brides encourage friends to pick different styles in the same hue, but also they’ve embraced a richer range of shades. Many groups now coordinate dresses within the same cohesive color scheme — a surefire way to ensure both visually stunning photos and happy bridesmaids.

Elaborate Seating Charts

No matter how many tables fill the reception space, guests need a heads-up on where to go. A style-minded list — whether it’s written on a repurposed mirror or displayed on a rustic wooden board — acts as both a helpful guide and statement-making decor. Elevate a black-tie ceremony with a custom acrylic sign, or use chalk pens to illustrate whatever vibe you’re going for on a plain blackboard. Another simple plan for embellishing your display: reposition an arch or floral arrangements from the ceremony by a table with escort cards.

Twilight Photo-Ops

While traditional portraits require ample natural light, some photographers have come up with creative solutions for shooting wedding parties outside at sunset, dusk or after-dark. The striking results prove it’s worth taking the time for a quick photo session by a glowing horizon or underneath the stars.

Classic Blue, Pantone’s Colour of the Year

Pantone describes the colour of year as “a timeless and enduring hue elegant in its simplicity,”. This classic shade which is darker than sky blue but lighter than midnight blue, is a much more relaxed hue, especially after vibrant shades like Living Coral and Ultra Violet in previous years!

Fault Line Cakes

The latest wedding cake trend is here, and it’s oh, so sweet. Fault line cakes are the new, edible pieces of art that look like an outer chunk of your cake is missing and you can see into the cake’s interior which features piles of sprinkles, flowers, fruit, hidden layers and more.

Planted Aisles

Ceremony flowers are are making the move away from pedestal arrangements towards gorgeous, planted garden-style aisles. This style of aisle decor features blooms at the edge of guests’ seats which appear to be organically ‘planted’ – a beautiful outdoor ceremony option.

Disco Fever

New twists on metallics, disco balls, fringe, neon signage and holographic details, all things disco are making a comeback for 2020 weddings – with a ’70s meets ’80s edge.
