As spring is quickly approaching, we are finalizing details with our spring and summer brides. Between planning with our brides and reading all the wedding blogs, we are learning and experiencing some exciting and new wedding trends. See a list below of some things to expect in the year 2020 with upcoming weddings.
- Quality Over Quantity: One big trend we are seeing are couples opting for a smaller wedding (50 or less people), but using that extra money they would have spent on other guests to enhance their wedding for each guest even more. This means more detail on the food, drink, entertainment and decor.
- Spiritual Vibes: Couples are now including a spiritual vibe to their big day (i.e. crystals, sage, aura photo booths, etc).
- Specialized Menus: Couples are being more sympathetic to those guests who have dietary needs. They are now catering to everyone, even if that means needing to add several other additional menu items.
- Barrettes & Headbands: Brides have strayed from the tiaras and are now wearing decorative barrettes or headbands.
- Saving the Planet: Couples are now more environmentally cautious than ever. They include recycled decor and using plants rather than cut flowers. For example they are using potted plants or nurseries for their centerpieces/decor.
- Food Conveyor Belt: Add a conveyor belt for your hors d'oeuvres to add that extra “wow,” touch to your wedding.
- Bold Colors: Say goodbye to the black and white weddings and welcome the bold color palettes brides are loving.
- Custom Fabric: Customize your aisle runner, table cloths, napkins, etc with your name, wedding date, monogram, etc.
- Pantsuits for Bridesmaids: Bridesmaids are now starting to wear pant suits or tuxedos instead of the traditional dresses.
- Colorful Groom Attire: Groom’s are straying from the traditional black jacket and are wearing bolder colors (blue, maroon, green, etc) and fabric (velvet).
- Self Serve Refreshments: Guests no longer have to wait around for a bartender to fill their drinks. Couples are including a self serve refreshment bar in their wedding.
- Charities: Couples are encouraging guests to help donate to a charity that is near and dear to their hearts.
- Art: Incorporate art pieces from your favorite artists on the walls or tables for your decor.
Spray Painted Floral Stems: No need to wrap those stems in some ribbon. Instead have them showing after your florist spray paints them to a color of your choosing.
