A year of COLOR
2020 is predicted to be a colorful year! Brides Magazine stated that, “…there are some mixed opinions in the crowd!—but know that one thing is certain: The rules are out. Color is the new neutral, mismatched bridesmaid dresses are the new standard, dried flowers are the new specialty bloom, and sustainable practices are the new expectation.”
The experts from The Knot give us some ideas of how to “go green!”: “Sustainable weddings are on the rise and we’re here for it. Consider “upcycling” your wedding, by committing to zero waste or a reduced carbon footprint. A lighter version of this 2020 wedding trend includes resetting a family stone or heirloom engagement ring, repurposing ceremony florals, sourcing locally grown food or hiring vendors who also prioritize sustainability.”
Non-traditional wedding dresses are in! In fact, they don’t even have to be dresses at all! Try jumpsuits!
Yay or nay? Dried and pressed flowers have been around for awhile, and some debate whether it’s time for them to make an exit, but it looks like they’ll be sticking around for 2020!
Some other growing trends include mismatched bridesmaid dresses, 90’s trends such as the barrette, blue suits over black ones, and nostalgic food choices (think grilled cheese and ramen), or the trending Charcuterie boards. The point is, anything goes! With so many options, why not just be you? Be individualistic! Who cares what the “trends” are? If it make you happy, go for it! This is your big day!
Say good-bye to…
Some of the trends that designers hope to be leaving behind in 2019 include velvet, donut walls, photobooths and Polaroid guestbooks, long wedding speeches, traditional wedding favors (try a welcome bag or experience), pampas grass, and so on.
We say, break the rules! It’s 2020, try something new! You don’t have to stick with the traditional practices of weddings (i.e. cut the cake, throw the bouquet, etc.).
