10 Hottest Wedding Trends of 2020

A new year means new wedding trends! We put together the top 10 wedding trends that we think are going to take over 2020. Go ahead and incorporate these into your big day!

I – Interactive Eats

Want to create a fun and interactive experience for your guests? Action stations are the way to go! We have seen a huge increase in the popularity of action stations and they will definitely  stay on the rise in 2020! Make action stations your own by going for a more classical approach with a carving station or a pasta bar, or add a little extra flair with a guacamole, ice cream, or slider bar for your late night snack!

2 –  Statement Veil

Statement veils are making a comeback! We would like to think that Hailey Bieber made this a fashion statement when she married Justin, but the reality is that statement veils have been an essential part of the bride’s attire since the 1930’s! We think that adding a statement veil when walking down the aisle makes that moment so much more impactful…no one in the room will be able to take their eyes off of you!

3 –  Sustainable Weddings

2020 – the year of sustainability and making the earth a little greener! And that doesn’t stop with weddings. There are many ways to incorporate sustainable alternatives into your wedding planning design. Opting for eco-friendly invitations, sustainable food options and glass instead of plastics are great ways to reduce your carbon footprint (just to name a few). Be sure to ask your florist for foam alternatives & ways to donate your flowers after the big day!

4 – Two in One Wedding Dresses

Here at SBW, we believe that two is always better than one. Especially when it comes to wedding dresses! However, we do know that purchasing a ceremony dress and reception dress can become quite pricey (trust us, we understand the price of weddings!!). So why not get one wedding dress that has two incredible looks? Want to look like a princess at your ceremony but be able to dance the night away at your reception? This is perfect for you! Check out some of these gorgeous options:

5 – Intimate Weddings 

Large weddings are becoming a thing of the past, and we are seeing a huge shift towards more intimate receptions. Say goodbye to walking through your reception and meeting people for the first time (sorry to your long lost 3rd cousin) and say hello to small, intimate receptions with the people who mean the most to you!

6 – Gender Mixed Wedding Parties 

Do you have a best friend of the opposite sex that you can’t imagine going through this process without? No problem! In 2020 we are expecting to see mixed gender wedding parties become one of the most popular trends! Bridesman, Groomsgal …whatever you want to call it, we are here for it!

7 – Welcome Bag instead of Favors 

Are you dreading spending a crazy amount of money on favors that you know your guests aren’t even going to use? Well it’s your lucky day! We have noticed that many couples are opting to not have favors and instead spend some extra money on thoughtful welcome bags. Welcome bags are a nice sentimental way to say “Thank You” to those guests who have travelled to be with you on your big day. They will most definitely appreciate the thoughtful gifts! See some of our favorite ideas below:

8 – Suede and Satin 

2019 was the year of velvet, and 2020 is the year of suede and satin! We are seeing many brides choose to play with textures when designing their decor. We love a gorgeous suede chair mixed with a satin napkin. Don’t be afraid to step outside the box and play with some designs!

9- Bridal Jumpsuits

Bridal Jumpsuits are one of our most favorite trends of 2020! There are so many ways to incorporate a fun jumpsuit into your big day. Are you not interested in wearing a traditional wedding dress? Go ahead and get a chic jumpsuit to wear from ceremony to reception! Or are you looking for something comfortable to dance the night away in? Change into a jumpsuit during your reception! Below are some of our favorite jumpsuit looks:

10 – Bold Colors and Patterns

We are suspecting that 2020 will be the year that we see a lot of bright & bold colors and patterns! This comes from many couples opting for the more nontraditional route when planning their wedding. We are excited to see a mix of patterns from the grooms suit to tables and bold colors mixed in throughout all of the decor!
