Planning a wedding can feel overwhelming at the best of times, not least because of the sheer amount of decisions to be made on everything from location to the cake and the outfits. And, some decisions and tasks can prove much trickier than others. For example, finding a wedding venue in London. But, once you have secured one, then you can get on with the things that are going to make your big day special. So, if you plan on tying the knot next year and looking for some inspiration then on reading as we are about to discuss next year’s trends.
Beautiful lighting can make your wedding venue sparkle as the sun goes down. Therefore, it isn’t a surprise that one of the top wedding trends set to hit 2020 is mood lighting. When the sun sets and your lights come on, they can set the entire mood and tone for your evening. There are many different ways in which you can integrate lighting in a creative way. But, Neon signage continues to be popular and can be customised to suit and makes a great keepsake.
One of the biggest trends that we are going to see next year is informal gatherings. More and more couples are deciding to opt for more intimate celebrations with their close family. They can be informal but can still keep with tradition or combine both for a modern wedding. Most importantly, though, they allow brides and grooms to spend more quality time with every single one of their guests.
Wedding photography has long been important, but with more choice and videographers, weddings being captured by film is becoming more popular and is a brilliant way of relieving your big day. With videography become more popular we will also see the use the drones more. They are great for taking stunning group shots from above.
Flowers displays are a defining part of any wedding; they provide a visual uplift and can even transform a wedding venue depending on how they are used. Bold colours and different textures are set to dominate the wedding industry in 2020. The greatest thing about floral arrangements is that they are all about getting creative. Think about all the different ways flowers can make a difference to your big day. Going local is also a trend that has been gaining traction over the past few years. Sourcing your flowers from a local independent florist is a brilliant way of putting a personal stamp on the day of your wedding.
More and more couples are looking at ways to reduce their carbon footprint when it comes to their big days. Wedding venues are also becoming more green and sustainable. One of the biggest trends that we expect to see in 2020 is for couples to upcycle or pledge to zero waste weddings. This can be from giving away their flowers to good causes or going plastic-free. Other ways can also include using paper straws instead of plastic ones and offering to replant tree as a will of good gesture.
As we head for 2020, we are seeing more and more couples opting for statement wedding cakes instead of smaller dessert displays. The great thing about choosing a statement wedding cake is that it doubles up as a decoration as well. And, you can also customise one to match the decor in the wedding venue you choose.
Balloon walls are a great way of transforming a wedding venue into something more contemporary and exciting. They are no longer just for New Year’s Eve or children’s parties; they make for celebratory decor for pretty much any event but especially weddings.
Hanging installations started to become popular this year, and we expect to see them becoming more and more elaborate in 2020. We can expect to see more creative designs and décor incorporated into these rather than common floral styles.
Everyone loves wedding entertainment, but this is going further than a standard band and average photo booth. Couples are now choosing creative entertainment for their guests, whether it’s fireworks, or dancers, to make their wedding even more fun and unique.
It’s Your Big Day, Do It Your Way
Although all of these things are expected to be big in 2020, always make sure that you do things your own way. Whatever the trends are remember that it is your big day, so make it your own. It doesn’t matter what other people are doing or what’s popular. Create a day that you will truly remember for the rest of your life.
