Wedding Trend #1: Dip Dye Wedding Dresses
These one-of-a-kind, gorgeous wedding dresses are one of the biggest 2020 wedding trends and most unique things you’ll see at weddings this season. You can dip dye your own wedding dress by following a tutorial, or there are services that will help you color your wedding dress to your exact specifications!
Wedding Trend #2: Dinner with a Twist
There’s nothing wrong with chicken and green beans, but we love how brides in 2019 are serving their guests unique and fun foods that communicate their personality. Whether it’s taco bars, donuts, s’mores, ice cream sundaes, or Chinese food, we love this growing trend! Now, where’s the nearest wedding with food trucks catering?
Wedding Trend #3: Farmhouse Chic Decor
Farmhouse chic isn’t just a great style for home decor, Joanna Gaines—it’s an adorable theme for weddings! We love this theme because it combines everything great about traditional wedding decor with a fun and modern twist. If you like weddings with a more casual, warm feel, this 2020 wedding trend was made for you!
Wedding Trend #4: Dark Color Palettes
Deep, moody colors like maroon, burnt orange, and dark greens are the 2020 wedding color palettes taking center stage at weddings this year. According to marthastewartweddings.com, event designer Jessica Sloane says that weddings are “getting edgier.”
Wedding Trend #5: Flower, Flowers, and More Flowers
Flowers and greenery are not only showing up in wedding bouquets and centerpieces this year, they’re being used as wall art, accessories, arches, flower crowns, and even on wedding dresses! This year’s motto when it comes to wedding flowers? The more the merrier!
In order to accomplish this look without breaking the bank, we recommend prioritizing your real flower budget for the areas your guests will get up close to, and then using fake flowers for your wedding arch and decor accent pieces. There are companies that create STUNNING silk flower arrangements that could fool anybody!
It is the year of the flower, and we are loving it!
Wedding Trend #6: Personal Cakes
I’m sure you’re familiar with personal pizzas, but have you ever heard of personal cakes?
This alternative to the three-tier traditional wedding cake is too cute not to love! They’re perfectly sized, adorable mini wedding cakes designed to satisfy your guests sweet tooth—a fun and new take on a ceremony classic! Thanks to hundreds of different styles these cute delicacies can come in, you can class your mini wedding cakes up (as pictured above), or go with a more fun, light-hearted angle. There is so much room for creativity with this dessert!
Most guests don’t have room for a huge dessert after a wedding dinner, so this is the perfect sized dish to follow a wedding dinner. Not to mention, they look DELICIOUS. It’s all the good taste of a cupcake and cake pop rolled into one, except it’s not messy to eat, and there’s enough to actually satisfy your sweet tooth!
Wedding Trend #7: Tapered Candles
Bohemian weddings are bringing out all of the classics! We love the elegant and sophisticated touch these candles bring to a table setting. By simply adding a few, it elevates your wedding decor, giving your wedding a finished and polished look.
Tapered candles are about taking a traditional element and making it feel new and romantic. WeddingWire says, “As couples continue to pare down their wedding decor with a ‘quality vs. quantity’ mindset, they’re also going back to the basics. Cue the timeless taper candles! These long candles, which might have felt too formal or old-school for modern couples in years past, are no doubt one of the top 2019 wedding decor trends.”
Wedding Trend #8: Statement Wedding Invitations
“The bigger and more unique the better,” the Knot reports. “Invitations set the stage for an epic party.” We agree! That’s why we created the most unique book-style wedding invitations on the market. We believe your wedding invitations should do more than tell people a time and place—they set the tone for your entire event!
Ever since the first wedding invitation was chiseled on stone tablets thousands of years ago, there hasn’t been much improvement. Today’s wedding invitations leave no room for you to be you. For you to tell your story, for you to not only invite your guests to your most important day, but allow your guests to be a part of your love story. And that is where we come in!
