Although the 2019 wedding season has only just got underway, wedding professionals and engaged couples are already looking ahead to next year’s trends. If you’re planning on getting hitched in 2020, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about everything from your décor to your menu. Here are our wedding trend predictions to ensure you make all the right decisions.
Sustainability is incredibly important and more and more couples are opting to build their weddings around environmentally friendly ideas. Plastic-free weddings , in particular, will be big in 2020, with more couples than ever before opting to forgo convenience and help save Mother Nature instead. If you want to make your wedding a little greener, think about replacing any plastic cups, crockery or cutlery with biodegradable alternatives and swapping plastic decorations for foliage, paper and other sustainable materials.
Dresses with a difference
Although traditional white dresses will still be the most popular choice for brides getting hitched in 2020, an increasing number will opt for original and unique gowns. Dresses with pockets are likely to become more common in the coming months. As @FRweddingstyle says, dresses with pockets ‘Allow you to combine beauty with utility, since the bride can put some personal belongings such as a mobile phone or lipstick in there for a discreet little adjustment.’ Off-white dresses and even trousers are also set to be big in 2020, giving brides a great selection of looks to choose from when walking down the aisle.
The food is an important part of any wedding. These days, guests expect to be treated to an impressive array of dishes and top-quality ingredients. A lot of people also now expect the wedding menu to be innovative and original as well as mouth-watering Instead of serving traditional wedding fayre on your big day, why not surprise your guests by opting for something a little different? Asian food, Mexican food and Italian can all go down very well with people of all ages. Alternatively, keep things simple by organising a BBQ or hog roast for your guests to enjoy.
It’s now possible to personalise everything from your wine bottles to your tablecloths. Stamping all your accessories with your initials, the date of your wedding or even photos of friends and family will help your wedding décor to really look the part. What’s more, when the day draws to a close, your nearest and dearest can take home a selection of accessories as souvenirs.
