THE TOP WEDDING TRENDS OF 2020
Planning your wedding this year? Create the most unforgettable wedding day with some of the hottest current wedding trends around.
1. Eco-Friendly Weddings
The importance of sustainability is on the minds of more and more people as time progresses. It has become a recurring theme at lots of weddings, and this is why we are sure it will be present in 2020 wedding decor trends. Couples have begun to consider ways of reducing their carbon footprint, minimize travel, and use organic and local products. From portion sizes that minimize waste to the use of biodegradable confetti, and seed paper for wedding stationery, or even just digitization of all wedding communication.
2. Micro Weddings
This wedding trend is by invite only—think 40 people or less. But like any exclusive party, a celebration of this kind delivers big. The budget per guest is higher, which means your very nearest and dearest are treated to bespoke touches, elaborate meals and tons of personalization. This style soiree is perfect for introverts or people hoping to celebrate with a smaller group of loved ones.
3. Natural Bridal Make Up
Minimalist bridal makeup is the latest wedding trend to hit weddings. Brides want to look as natural as they can. The secret is to invest in good skin prep before the wedding. For the brows, fill the sparse areas to give a natural depth to the face. You could also hit light bronzer on the places where the sun rests like the forehead, nose tip, cheeks, and chin. Contour minimally to sculpt and flatter the facial angles. A waterproof mascara on your natural lashes subtly lifts and defines them. Highlight the high points of your face very gently, then use a lip-stain and blur the edges. This is against using staining lipsticks.
4. Non-Traditional Wedding Parties
Gone are the days where these lovely creatures were left out of wedding celebrations. The new trend in weddings is the non-traditional style. And with kids and pets at your wedding, the pictures take a cute turn.
Pets can walk the bride down the aisle. You can also have them pose next to your wedding attire before the day begins. Make pets a part of the bridal and groom photos, a very cute upgrade from the regular.
Kids are very sensitive, so to avoid picking favorites, have them lead the processional. You can ditch the traditional flower girls and ring bearer roles for this. They can also be junior bridesmaids and groomsmen.
5. Dark Color Palettes
Not every bride is interested in the traditional all-white or bright wedding. Some couples and event designers prefer a more unique palette, with subdued hues. Something which might better reflect the personality of the couple. Rustic bridal shower decorations could benefit from such uniqueness if the colors are carefully chosen. For instance, a color palette consisting of black, ivory, and merlot.
6. Wedding Balloon Decorations Ideas
Balloons are typically associated with birthdays – but they make amazing wedding decorations! This is one of the newest and craziest trends. You can intertwine balloons with flowers, or order balloons-only decorations. It is a great solution if you or your guests are allergic to flowers!
Add to your wedding reception their soft, silky textures. Use them for bride and groom sculptures, balloon arches, columns, and centerpieces. Balloon decorations are great both for indoors and outdoors.
7. It’s Lit
Good lighting is the surest way to get those 2020 wedding decor trends noticed. From hanging installations to tube lighting and LED bars, the options are endless. Change up the feeling of your party from dinner to dancing with a light show or add strings of fairy lights to a concentrated space, like above your cake table for maximum effect. And fret not, candlelight is still on trend for creating an intimate and romantic vibe.
8. Edible Florals
Frozen in ice-cubes, tossed in salads, sprinkled on tops of dessert, edible flowers are a big wedding reception trend for 2020. This pretty extra is perfect for floral-loving duos and an easy way to elevate virtually anything from infused water to classic vanilla cake. Florals and weddings are synonymous so pair your edible petals with dried flowers for a romantic effect.
9. Barrettes and Combs
Veils aren’t going anywhere, but tiaras have given way to the latest in hair jewelry—barrettes and combs. These wedding hair accessories are often adorned in pearls, rhinestones and colorful enamels. They’re great for holding back natural curls or creating a second style for your wedding reception.
10. Statement Wedding Decor
Go for the wow-moment. Instead of stretching your decor budget to include many things, narrow in on one or two true statement moments, like hanging florals over dining tables, a neon installation that doubles as a ceremony altar or an explosive firework sendoff. Your guests will be sure to remember a real standout detail, especially if it feels very “you guys.”
