Happy New Year from Elite Marquees, we hope you’re looking forward achieving all that you need too in 2020.
Only on at the start of December 2019 did we remind you that we are now taking bookings for 2021 and that will be here before you know.
But with 2020 only a week old, we thought we would have a look at some of the wedding trends you are set to see in the upcoming year and beyond.
Wedding trends come and go, and it’s hard to stay on top of the latest ones. But we’re set to see brides ditching mason jars and flower walls in favor of the latest popular accessories.
Fortunately, brides don’t have to scour Pinterest for the latest must-have details ahead of their big days, as wedding website The Knot has rounded up the top wedding trends of 2020 in its annual report.
Other soon-to-be newlyweds will be invested in the latest food trends, which include everything from molecular gastronomy to self-service champagne.
For other couples, this means a focus on an eco-friendly wedding, where guests can expect to see anything from recyclable invites to repurposed floral arrangements.
Have a look at some of wedding trends that you can expect to see everywhere in the new year.
Simple wedding dresses have been replaced with show-stopping ones as glamorous ball gowns return to popularity. According to The Knot, “more is more when it comes to the 2020 wedding dresses”.
Even wedding food will undergo a transformation in the coming year as conveyor belts replace traditional waiters holding trays of appetisers. Molecular gastronomy and fusion flavours will also be huge as couples incorporate cuisines from a variety of backgrounds.
Spray Painted Stems
To add a pop of colour, brides may choose to spray-paint their bridal bouquet in fun, bright shades. If you are looking for a more subtle look, you can try adding metallic details or frosted pastels to the arrangements.
Philanthropy will be a huge theme, as couples look for ways to give back in the new year. Whether you link to a charity on your wedding registry or make donations on behalf of each guest, weddings will be all about what you can do to help others.
Dressed to Impress
Black may be a classic, but 2020 will see grooms dressed in shades of blue, including navy, teal, and cobalt, according to the wedding site. If an entirely teal tuxedo seems like a lot, grooms can incorporate the trend with a bow tie.
We are not entirely sure on this one. But some weddings are forgoing the bartender this year, as the new beverage trend sees guests pouring their own drinks – by using a wall-mounted dispenser similar to those found in bars. Whether it is a cocktail or champagne, the method makes it easier to keep guests refreshed. Of course, you can always try our sister company Elite Bars to cover the bar part of your big day.
Sugar flowers have been replaced with actual ones, as the
trend makes its way into ice cubes and food.
You take the floral theme to the next level by incorporating dried flowers, according to The Knot, which recommends using them for confetti or pressed in the invites.
According to our research, the biggest trend of 2020 will be mysticism – meaning anything from sage and burning incense to crystals. For some couples, this may mean including a crystal in each guest’s goodie bag. The bridal website also suggests passing around your wedding rings to guests who can “imbue them with good energy and well-wishes”.
Barrettes and Combs
Brides will be wearing barrettes and combs in the coming year, leaving tiaras behind. These accessories can add a hint of sparkle and be worn during either the ceremony or the reception. The look also pairs well with veils, which aren’t “going anywhere,”.
In the coming year, expect to be among just 40 guests or less, with weddings expected to get a lot smaller. Fortunately, this means the budget per guest is higher – so you can expect special personalised touches as a guest.
