Wedding Trends for 2020

The New Year (not to mention DECADE) is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to see what fresh wedding trends will start to take form in the wedding world! In an industry heavily influenced by fashion, art, and technology, there are no limits to what exciting wedding trends 2020 may have in store for us! Here is what Orange Blossom Bride is expecting to see when it comes to wedding trends for 2020!

Flower Power

Flowers are going to steal the show in 2020, but not necessarily in the traditional ways we may expect. Floral installations will continue to gain popularity, and we can expect to see unique floral structures and design taking the place of a traditional ceremony arch.

The flower trend doesn’t stop there, as bridal fashion week showed an interest in elaborate floral headpieces and even jewelry. For us, this will likely translate to something along the lines of flower crowns breaking out of the “rustic, garden party” mold and becoming a bit more bold and fashion forward. The use of floral cuffs are also a fun way to incorporate flowers into your wedding day fashion.

Live Entertainment

The trend of creating an amazing wedding experience for your wedding guests isn’t going away and we love it! One of the ways that we are seeing this done is couples including live entertainment. From dueling pianos to Samba dancers, this is a great way to keep your wedding guests entertained!

Bridal Beauty

In addition to an emphasis on floral headpieces, hair accessories, in general, are starting to pop up. Thick headbands and barrettes have been seen on the runways, and our local boutiques have already started picking up on the trend and have been adding new wedding day hair accessories to their collections.

Wedding Day Makeup may also get a makeover. For a while brides have been beautifully rocking a more natural look when it comes to makeup for their big day. This year, expect to see ultra glam and bold colors popping up!

Roaring 20’s

Since we are heading into the year 2020, it is natural to expect a fair share of weddings with a Great Gatsby/Roaring 20’s influence. The classic black, white, and gold wedding day color scheme is always a hit, and there was never a better time to incorporate 1920’s fashion into a wedding day look!

Pantone Color of the Year

Classic Blue was announced as the 2020 Pantone Color of the Year, so you will start to see this color brought to the forefront when it comes to wedding colors. However, blush and burgundy will continue to remain popular throughout a portion of 2020. The difference being that couples (and planners) will try to come up with unexpected accent colors to give a fresh take on an old trend.

Sustainability

Couples have become more focused on sustainability with the sourcing of the items that they include in their wedding, especially when it comes to the menu. Local sourced and farm to table food will continue to be popular in 2020.

Feels Like Home

Lounge areas at weddings have become very popular over the past few years. However, this year we are going to see couples adding more personal touches to these areas that “feel like home”. Frames with photos of the couple, throw pillows, blankets, along with elements that reflect the personalities of the couples, create a relaxing and memorable vibe for wedding guests.

Custom Attire

Continuing with the personalized theme, brides and grooms will be opting for custom attire on there wedding day. Whether having a seamstress sew a top and bottom of two gowns together for a customized look or creating a custom tux out of the groom’s favorite fabric, we will be seeing a lot of unique wedding style this year.
