This Year’s Wedding Trends for 2020

March 6, 2020

After you get engaged, it’s time to dive into the endless online boards and pictures for wedding inspiration. Even if you’ve spent your life looking forward to your big day, you may run across a few surprises. You’ll find so much to learn about planning a wedding that you won’t know about until you get started.

When you think you’ve nailed down the last tiny detail, there’s a surprise waiting around the corner for you to unravel. You’ll need to consider the textures of your table linens and the colours in your bouquet. Where’s a good place to start?

Check out this year’s wedding trends for 2020 so that you know what other brides find most interesting. It may help you find things you wouldn’t have thought of otherwise or introduce you to new design concepts you can’t help but fall in love with. 

Use Lots of Greenery

Brides used to cover their wedding venue in flowers. It’s why florists have so many different options to choose from for centrepieces, bouquets, garlands and hanging arrangements. On the other hand, flowers are one of the most significant wedding expenses, which has many modern brides looking for budget-friendly alternatives. Foraging for greenery can keep budgets down.

Don’t Go Too Big

Brides are under pressure to host a big wedding with everyone who has ever been a friend. That commitment requires a considerable budget, but don’t worry. Today’s wedding planners now want to host micro weddings and ceremonies for a more intimate vibe. They’re perfect if you want a celebration with minimalist decor or if you have a small venue in mind. You’ll get to spend more money per guest and not worry about last-minute arrivals or additions. 

Specialise Your Menu

Your guests want to celebrate you and your fiancé during your ceremony, but they’re all looking forward to the reception too. It’s easier today for people to talk about their dietary restrictions, which is why brides strive to specialise their reception menus. 

Think of what you want to serve as your main course and accommodate common food allergies so that everyone can eat something delicious. Ask about allergies on your RSVP card and discuss the responses with your caterer before printing menus. Indicate which options are best for vegetarians and vegans, and point out food that has nuts and milk in it. Every little effort will make your guests more comfortable and help them have a great time.

Provide Guest Transportation

Many wedding guests come in from out of town. They’ll need a place to stay and a way to get around. Instead of leaving guests on their own, provide easy transportation options like hiring a charter bus. The driver will escort everyone to the venue and reception so that you don’t get confused calls from panicked revellers.

If you want to have a destination wedding, transportation is even more vital to consider. Hiring a driver to get everyone where they need to go makes the day easier for everyone.

Pick Special Lighting

Your venue will have adequate lighting for regular events, but it probably won’t help set the mood for your wedding. Brides now pick special lighting to make the room look more festive. Candles, whether they have open flames or batteries, create a warm atmosphere. Look into string lights, lanterns and Edison bulbs to try out out some of the most popular lighting trends.

Think About Your 2020 Wedding Style

The best way to know which 2020 wedding trends are right for your ceremony is to think about your style. What do you like, and what kind of interior designs do you prefer? Use your personal taste to guide your wedding choices and plan the ultimate ceremony.
