Wow! Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner and the New Year is almost upon us. If you’re anything like us, you will love keeping a close eye on the latest wedding trends and we can’t wait to see what 2020 brings to the industry.
It goes without saying, more and more of us are doing our part to be kinder to the environment, even when it comes to weddings! Couples are opting to go green and are embracing eco-friendly and sustainable ways to say, ‘I Do’. This is definitely a trend we can get on board with!
Long Trestle Tables
Gone are the days of traditional round tables for the reception. Long, trestle or banquet tables are a huge hit for 2020 and we can definitely see why. They are informal yet luxurious and can be styled in any way to suit your celebration.
While we’re on the topic of tables, let’s talk about your centrepieces! 2020 is the year of statement centrepieces, whether that’s gilded urns overflowing with big, blousy blooms, stunning chandeliers hanging above the tables or more candles than you can count. It’s time to go all out with your centrepieces.
Luxury floral design has stolen the spotlight in recent years, and it looks like this trend is set to stay for 2020, with floral sculptures making an impact in big ways. Raised installations brimming with blooms can be used during your ceremony, reception or even above the dance-floor and they are the perfect way to transform your space into a floral paradise.
We adore getting up-to-date with the latest floral trends so we are over the moon to hear that roses are making a comeback. From bridal bouquets to centrepieces, you can expect to see this romantic flower throughout the wedding industry in 2020.
When it comes to bridalwear trends for the year ahead, we can’t ignore embroidered gowns. We love this modern-meets-vintage style of wedding dress and it really is a design for all seasons. Opt for beautiful floral appliqué, lace details and intricate needlework for a wedding gown that wows.
Pub Wedding Venues
Let’s talk about venues. It seems that couples are swapping extravagant settings for something a little more intimate and cosier, and what better place than a pub wedding venue? With cities boasting an array of heart-warming pubs, excellent transport links and photograph backdrops aplenty, it’s no wonder that brides and grooms are swapping the countryside for something a little cooler.
Quirky Food & Drinks Stations
Couples are getting their creative caps on for 2020 and are swapping traditional wedding breakfasts for stylish, self-serve food and drinks stations. We’re talking taco bars, doughnut walls, burger vans and more. Grubs up for your guests and this is one trend that is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
Grazing Tables and Vegan Options
Who’s feeling hungry? You will be now! We love the idea of a relaxed and informal grazing table in place of a traditional wedding breakfast and it seems like they are going to be bigger and better for 2020. Plus, you can even go down the vegan and vegetarian route if you wanted, with oodles of options on offer.
Forget Minimalist, It’s All About Maximalism
You heard us right! Once upon a time, it was all about being minimalist with your wedding styling but 2020 is the year of embracing the extraordinary and having some real fun with your details and décor. Think bold colours, oversized flowers, edgy lighting and so much more. It’s time to make your wedding day impossible to ignore!
The textures trend goes hand in with the above and we are expecting to see couples incorporating an array of different textures into their wedding styling next year. Velvet ribbons, linen tablecloths, thick luxurious card for stationery – the options are endless.
Hand-painted wedding stationery is effortlessly elegant and unbelievably timeless, making it the perfect fit for a 2020 wedding. Whether you ask your stationer to draw your wedding venue or you have sweet illustrations of you as a couple for your save the dates, there’s something so sentimental about hand-painted stationery. This is one of the loveliest trends for the year ahead!
Vintage-Inspired Bridal Gowns
Ellie Goulding’s bespoke Chloé silk crêpe gown stole the show in 2019 and it seems to have catapulted vintage-inspired gowns into the wedding throne for 2020. Inspired by the Victorian era, Ellie’s wedding dress has brought high necklines, low hemlines, layers of lace and long sleeves into the forefront.
Swapping Veils For Headbands
The wedding industry often follows the world of fashion and headbands have been impossible to ignore. It seems that this high-street hit has made its mark in the world of bridalwear. Brides are expected to say goodbye to the veil and instead say hello to the modern, statement headband. You can go for a simple, understated design or you can go all out with a headband that’s bejewelled with gems, embellishments and sequins. It’s time to sparkle your way down the aisle!
Let’s not forget about 2020 wedding trends for the groom. Jewel tones, mismatched suits and velvet jackets have been huge over the years, but we’re excited to see where patterned suits find their feet in the wedding industry. This is definitely a bold move for the fashion-forward groom but we love how couples are getting creative with their aisle style.
