Modern weddings have become a more personalized affair. Brides are putting more of their own personal touch into their Big Day and updating classic traditions to be more uniquely them. Still, trends continue to guide brides who are looking for inspiration for their wedding, which is why we have compiled this list of top wedding trends to look for in 2020.
1. Non-Wedding Wedding Dresses When you think about your wedding day, perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is the white wedding dress that you wear as you walk down the aisle. Although the white wedding dress is not going away any time soon, brides are beginning to add more personality to their wedding attire and gravitate towards styles that are more diverse and not so traditionally “bridal”. In 2020, expect to see more brides walking down the aisle in separates, knits, and even jumpsuits that fit their individuality and everyday style. Our partner, David’s Bridal, designs a wide range of dresses that fit every bride. Take a look at some of their best dresses here.
2. One-Of-A-Kind Wedding Rings
Weddings in 2020 will be all about shirking tradition and embracing customization. We will continue to see this as brides plan for the Big Day before the Big Day – their engagement. Engagement rings are no longer restricted to traditional diamonds, so expect to see a rise in more varieties of stones and designs that are created by artisans and bought online. Morganite is a very popular stone right now as are quarts, opals, and pearls. Many brides are finding their handmade engagement and wedding rings on artisanal crafting sites such as Etsy and even the Amazon Handmade marketplace.
3. Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
The trend of letting each bridesmaid select her own dress has become more and more common, and we won’t see that trend slowing down anytime soon. Mismatched bridesmaid dresses not only allow your bridesmaids to stand out, but it also leads to happier bridesmaids! Consider giving your wedding party the freedom to pick a cut or color that completely flatters and feels most natural to them. David’s Bridal is our one-stop shop for both wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. Take a look at a few of the unique styles they offer.

4. Customized Wedding Bouquets
Here at The Bouqs Co., we know that brides have their eyes on the details and take as much care in selecting their wedding flowers as they do their wedding dresses. A customized wedding bouquet gives you the opportunity to create an arrangement that’s filled only with the flowers that mean the most to you. Think back to Meghan Markle’s royal wedding bouquet for example – every flower was thoughtfully selected and filled with symbolism. Brides will continue to take the reign on the flowers they include in their wedding bouquets, which is why we continue to offer popular DIY wedding packages that you can customize for your special day. Our most popular packages are Heartfelt, Passion, and Adore, but you can see the entire selection at bouqs.com/services/weddings.
5. Eco-Friendly Weddings
Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword anymore, it’s a lifestyle that more people are continuing to fully embrace. This trend doesn’t stop when it comes to planning your wedding day – brides are more eco-conscious than ever and are looking for new ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle in 2020. Many brides are starting to donate their wedding flowers to local hospitals and charities after the dancing and dining are done. They’re also using biodegradable confetti and wedding invites made of recycled paper. One more trend you can expect to see in 2020: plastic-free weddings.
Modern weddings have transformed from purely traditional to purely and uniquely YOU. We predict that these five wedding trends will be hot in 2020, but of course it all comes down to what you and your partner and looking for on that big day. Which trend are you embracing?
