Today’s weddings have become less about tradition and more about choosing your own adventure with the biggest wedding trends being all about individuality. The industry has evolved, and brides are no longer pigeonholed in their decision making. Check out these 2020 wedding trends by category.
If you have been dreaming of wearing a big white gown on your wedding day, you won’t find a shortage of options. The new generation of bridal designers are offering up a world of choices for the bride who doesn’t want to look too “bridal” or wants to wow her guests in multiple looks on her wedding day. Names to have on your radar include Dana Harel, Hermione de Paula, Monica Byrne, Danielle Frankel, just to name a few.
Couples are choosing their rings together – both the engagement ring and wedding bands. There has been a spike in popularity for cushion-cut, hand-mined diamonds (a square cut with rounded corners, like Jessica Biel’s engagement ring) and predicts a rise in yellow-gold rather than platinum bands, alongside Art Deco pieces. “Couples want the rings that tell their story”.
The undone bun or freshly washed and tousled tresses are becoming the new normal for brides keen to avoid traditional or overly coiffed hairstyles.
Brides are looking for ways to reduce the environmental and ethical impact of their weddings. Last year Princess Eugenie made plans for a plastic-free wedding. There are numerous ways to make your wedding sustainable – from using wedding stationery made from recycled paper to selecting a catering company that sources ethical, local and organic produce. In place of favors, ask for a charitable donation to your favorite charity.
Wedding cakes have evolved from the traditional fruit and fondant into towering works of art covered in anything from edible flowers to dripped icing, brush strokes to gin flavoring.
Still remains dramatic with lighting a key focus. Utilizing a mix of table shapes and sizes to create a fun relaxed party atmosphere is still a leading trend.
We strive to keep up on industry trends with continued education opportunities. This enables us to help guide our clients in designing the wedding of their dreams.
