Every decade has had its most memorable trends! The 1990s saw sleek gowns being selected by brides and destination weddings becoming popular. The 2000s moved wedding ceremonies to hotels and country clubs and cupcakes wrapped up receptions as the sweet treat. In the 2010s, personalization was all the buzz. Couples wanted customized wedding favors and everything else. What trends can couples expect to pop up in the 2020s? Check out where the industry is going as the decade turns over.
More Florals: Beyond bouquets, flowers will crop up as edible accents in food and drinks. Also, florals will be the foundation of interesting decor.
Eco-friendly: Sustainability remains important to many couples, who will be looking for ways to make their weddings leave less of an imprint.
Making it an Experience: Weddings will be more than just dinner and dancing. The bride and groom seek to create an interesting and memorable experience with the addition of unexpected elements, such as a sketch artist or magician.
Groom Fashion: Guys will be spending more time and consideration on what to wear on their wedding day and donning more than just a black tuxedo.
Dress Reboot: Brides may see more big sleeves on the rack when dress shopping. Inspired by the ’80s, puffy sleeves have more of a romantic vibe this time around.
Hair accessories: Brides will be donning barrettes and combs as hair jewelry as a way to add style or a pop of color after the ceremony and during the reception.
Unplugged for the Moment: Weddings have been including requests by couples to keep cell phones off as a way to encourage connections with their guests. This is expected to extend to honeymoons as the newlyweds want to stay off social media and stay in the moment.
Giving Back: Generosity is taking center stage as couples use the opportunity to have guests donate as part of their wedding registries. Some even make donations in addition or instead of party favors.
Video Keepsakes: Photography has always been an important component of weddings. Couples are moving toward movies by seeking out videographers to capture their special days. The use of drones can bring a whole new perspective to any wedding film.
