2020 Wedding Trends

Although we’re only halfway through the year, 2020 will be approaching in no time. If you’re recently engaged and in the process of planning a wedding, there are a few trends you should know about. So, read below and prepare to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new.

Dance, Dance Revolution

Besides the delicious reception food, most people enjoy visiting wedding venues in Glendale, CA for the nonstop dancing. For decades, hiring a DJ who could play all types of music has been the trend. A good DJ can keep the party going, knows when to slow it down or to play the “Electric Slide.” However, come 2020 bands will be all the rage. The element of live music really enhances any reception and gets people out on the dancefloor having a good time. Experts predict nearly 75% of wedding receptions in the coming year will utilize a band in place of a DJ.

Bye-Bye Greenery

The day of using greenery as an accent is a trend of the past. Today, couples are choosing a wide array of flowers and colors instead. This new movement noticed at venues near me and across the country adds a vibrant feel to the celebration. Bold statement colors are all the rage, especially coupled with different textures and designs. Speak to any local florist about how these types of displays can add an explosion of color to your reception.

Waste Not Want Not

With so much focus on going green and being environmentally friendly, it’s no surprise this movement carried over to weddings. Expect to see receptions without straws or with paper straws instead of plastic. Also, be prepared to recycle onsite and for couples to pledge a ‘zero waste’ commitment. Some will even vow to donate flowers to good causes and to eliminate as much waste as possible. The possibilities are endless when it comes to eco-friendly receptions.

Simplicity and Functionality

Typically, when thinking about a wedding gown, the words simple and functional do not come to mind. However, in 2020 brides are opting for clean, simple dresses with pockets. That’s right, pockets. This makes sense for the bride to carry her phone, tissues, and lipstick, but it’s a novel trend. Also, the days of bedazzled dresses, with many details and accents are gone too. In the coming year, we expect more elegant, sleek designs, thanks to Meghan Markle, according to experts.

Cakes like a Boss

On the flip side of toning down the razzle-dazzle of wedding dresses, creative cakes are on the rise. Since shows like “Cake Boss,” and “Wedding Cake Championship” gain popularity, the bar for wedding cakes keeps escalating. In 2020, you should plan on your wedding cake to be a focal piece of the reception. The more unique and show-stopping the cake looks, the better. Displaying the dessert with mirrors, lights and on elevated surfaces are a few methods couples are implementing.
