Without further explanation, let's dive in and take a look at the top trends that have continued to exist in most weddings for the past decade.
- Pampas Grass
Pampas grass used to be more prevalent at boho weddings, but over the past few years, this super cool, soft, and romantic pampas grass is now a must-have in most weddings today. Even though the pink-colored pampas grass is most used at weddings, the classic variety is also very beautiful.
- Naked and Semi-Naked Wedding Cakes
Wedding cakes without the icing have been trending for some years now. This would seem to be a result of the drive towards informal wedding celebrations.
- Food Trucks
When it comes to parties, food trucks are part of the main attractions, little wonder a lot of couples have been recruiting them for their wedding parties for some years now. From pizza to burgers and chips, food trucks are perfect fun choice for your event.
- Grooms in Separates
While suits still remain in fashion, a lot of grooms over the past few years have been expressing their sense of style in fashionable separate trousers, with a mixture of different textures and colors. A striped trouser here, a velvet blazer there; this look can also be an affordable way to get a bespoke look for your big day.
- Coffee Trucks
Coffee lovers will find this amazing - It is now a major trend to find a coffee truck park at wedding venues to deliver caffeinated delights. Think hot coffees after the ceremony outside your local church, an espresso martini reception on the grounds of your venue, or flat whites for all your guests the morning after the night before. This is a fun touch that your guests will thank you for!
- Hanging Flowers
If you want to make a big impact with your wedding flowers, hanging florals are the way to do it. Of course, you need the right florist to pull this one-off, but the finished result is luxurious, romantic, and so gorgeous!
- Wedding Dresses With Sleeves & Statement Headpieces.
Sleeves of any kind are having a moment. This wedding dress allows you to jump on board with the sleeve trend in a way that feels classic. Plus, the dress also represents two more trends—florals and convertible. After the church service, consider removing the top layer of the skirt to reveal a new, sleeker style for your reception.
Also, Baroque-style embellished crowns have also become increasingly popular in recent years, and thanks to Meghan Markle, tiaras are making a comeback too. We predict brides will even go bolder with their choice of headpieces in 2020.
- Photo Booths
While photo booth props are slowly disappearing from weddings, the booths themselves are going nowhere, lots of couples love the idea of capturing fun spontaneous photos of their guests long after the professional photographer has gone home.
- Festoon Lights
Also known as bistro lights or string lights, festoon lights have replaced fairy lights as the romantic lighting of choice for weddings. Indoors or out, they add instant atmosphere to any setting.
