Home » 15 Top wedding day trends for 2020

With the new year approaching lets take look at the 15 top wedding day trends for 2020. What to look out for at exclusive wedding venues in 2020.

1. Aisle procession dances.

Find your inner rhythm as you and your bridal party rock down the aisle to your favourite tune. If you have a spare 5 minutes, Jill and Kevin’s dance will make you smile for the rest of the day. Just make that yours is all caught on camera!

2. Group activities for guests

Keep your wedding guests happy with some hands on entertainment such as laser quest and zorbing. Carnival and fun fair themed attractions and rides will also be popular.

3. Signature Drinks

Create your own signature drink, perhaps in honour of where you and your partner first met. Cocktail making bars are IN right now and we don’t see any signs of their popularity decreasing any time soon.

4. Less focus on the religious element

Couples are choosing to focus more on themselves during their wedding ceremony and less on religion. A Humanist wedding ceremony is a celebration of your marriage. Include readings, music and promises that are all personal to you.

5. Upping the unique and personal

It’s the little finishing touches that make all the difference between a ‘wedding day’ and a ‘never to be forgotten wedding celebration’. Couples are looking to add extra special personal finishing touches that truly make the day.

6. Winter weddings

Planning a winter wedding is looking hot on the agenda for 2020 and why not! A winter wedding can be a truly magical experience. Think glitter, candles, hot mulled cider and roaring fires. Keep those fingers crossed for snow!

7. Say no to Brexit

We are not talking about how you voted here, but many couples are choosing to ban any mention of Brexit and Boris at any point during their wedding day celebrations.

8. Mixed-gender bridal parties

When it comes to your bridesmaids, the old rules no longer apply! You can have men in the bridesmaid party and for example if the groom is very close to his sister, she could be his best man!

9. Pets are in!

A great way to personalise your day in 2020 is to include your pets! Expect to see fluffy kittens in flower crowns and dashing dogs acting as ring bearers. Many people can’t imagine their wedding day without their beloved pets so why not try to involve them in a super cute way.

10. Environmentally-conscious weddings

Going for a much more environmentally-conscious wedding gets our seal of approval. There a many eco-friendly choices you can make when planning your wedding. For example ordering locally sourced wine and finding caterers who use ethically produced ingredients where possible.

11. Exclusive wedding venues

Exclusive wedding venues where privacy is everything. Couples are choosing exclusive settings for their marriage and they expect to have the property and it’s grounds at their complete disposal for their entire stay.

12. Delicious vegan dining

Another way of focusing on an eco-friendly wedding. Vegan and vegetarian dishes will be on the menu for 2020. If going 100% vegan sounds a little drastic for you maybe think about creating one dish to suit your menu.

13. Fairytale wedding gowns and high-low hem lines.

For 2020, classic styles have been re-vamped, feathery gowns and fairy tale frocks will create a whimsical feel to proceedings and the high-low hemline will be putting in a reappearance. See more wedding dress trends for 2020.

14. Buddymoons

Prepare to see the rise of the buddymoon, a honeymoons with the added bonus of family and friends! The millennial mindset of “the more the merrier” appears to be on the rise. Wedding planning website Hitched estimates that the average honeymoon costs £3,630, a figure that could explain why some millennials are opting to travel with their squad.
