Every new year just keeps getting better & better when talking about trends.
We are so lucky to have so many resources available to really create exactly what you want for your special day. There are so many amazing wedding locations to tie the knot, plus some of those draining traditions not everyone wants to pursue are slowly slipping away & its becoming more about what matters most - the love between you & your lover!
Couples are making each aspect of the wedding uniquely their own which is what makes them all so special! It is so nice to be able to create your own colour palettes & style that really reflect your one of a kind love story!
Sustainable lifestyles are becoming the new normal & so are sustainable weddings.
Sourcing your own flowers & greenery from natural sources is an economical & even creative way to make your own. Making DIY decorations is a great way to save on plastic & clutter.
You also could use a styling company that recycles & re uses.
When talking about food you can always check with your wedding venue host what suppliers & vendors they use to choose which one suits you on personal preference.
Rustic weddings have been of particular interest over the last few years, they have been around for ages & the vibe hasn't really faded. Rustic weddings have a strong country, garden or farm like influence & they tend to feature lots of sustainable things such as wild flowers, bark, wood or wild fruits. Also mason jars, mismatched vases, cloths & unique plate ware are all commonly found at a rustic themed wedding.
The smaller weddings are beautiful when the couple can really hone in on each other in an intimate setting, you can veer away from the traditions & make it simply all about you. These have become very popular of late with couples having a strict budget or only wanting their nearest & dearest there on a small guest list.
Who doesn't love to get amongst a grazing table, they are my absolute favourite! I love the idea of the pre-reception snacks to go down with a few wines! These are a big trend of late with individuals wanting to get away from old traditions & create their own lush table for guests to mingle at with a wine in hand.
all inclusive menus
Dietary requirements have boomed and making sure everyone has access to a delicious meal that suits their needs is much higher on the list of important things to do. Couples are being more thoughtful about guests when it comes to being gluten free, vegan, vegetarian & making sure they are catered for & included.
mix-matched bridesmaids dresses
This has became extremely popular of late, the mix matched theme is obviously a big thing with the same colour tones but different dresses.
It really shows that individualism when all the girls are dressed up & can add great contrast in photos. Once again its all up to the bride & everyone is different in their own with what they desire!
In 2019 it was all about pastels then this year those earthy tones are starting to take over, more searches for burnt orange & terracotta are becoming more prevalent and brides are choosing colours based on the seasons they wish to get married.
wedding after parties
Ever been to an event where you are having far too much fun for it to end by midnight! Taking the party elsewhere if you want to continue into the early hours of the morning is picking up in popularity. Most venues will have a curfew with their liquor license which means the fun must stop. But can you find somewhere else to kick on?
Wedding after parties are another huge trend for 2020 to take the party elsewhere & not let the fun end. Wedding recovery parties could be the next big thing!
