The Top Wedding Themes of 2020

The Top Wedding Themes of 2020

There is a lot to look forward to going into this year. For starters a “dawn of a new decade”. Themes change so often in today’s world, mainly influenced by social media trends and what’s “Instagram-worthy”. If you’re looking for a wedding theme in 2020 that’s refreshing and unique, we got you covered!

Desert Chic

This is a theme that is topping the charts for a perfect 2020 wedding. There are more and more women who strive for the boho bride look and feel. This theme is perfect for them because it adds elegance to a desert landscape. Besides the wedding apparel and obvious décor, there are many ways to add the desert chic look without breaking the bank. Succulents are a simple way to add a little desert-chic flair to your wedding day, as well as custom cocktails that have simple pops of colors and green leafy garnishes. From playful prints to entire bachelorette party themes, desert chic is making a statement this season, and we’re all for it!

All of the Lights

A huge trend this year is a throwback to earlier decades. This specific theme brings us back to the 80s and 90s. A number of couples want a unique, not so uptight wedding. That’s why a neon themed wedding could be something fun and out-of-the-box yet also nostalgic! It’s the 90s babies’ turn at the alter and this theme takes them back to their childhood. This celestial-inspired details (an updated take on those glow-in-the-dark stars every ‘90s kid had on their ceilings).

Viral Trends

The current world has been taken over by social media. People of course want their wedding to be personal, but they also want to have the wedding that is post-worthy. Here’s the ultimate challenge for today’s soon-to-be weds: Create an event that feels personal but that’s also good for the ‘gram. This can be done with trends such as unique wedding photos, your entertainment, and of course your food choices. Some examples include selfie stations and food trucks. Your wedding can be trendy, but remember to make it timeless!

Going Green

Sustainability is not just a 2020 wedding trend—it’s a way of life, and that extends to planning a wedding with the environment top of mind. People are becoming aware and “upcycling” their wedding, by committing to zero waste or a reduced carbon footprint. You can start by hiring vendors who also practice sustainability. Also, resetting a family engagement ring, rather than going brand new (this can be just as special if not more). It is becoming more and more popular to couples to try and “do their part” by following some simple eco friendly trends.

Micro Wedding

I bet you’re wondering, what is a micro wedding? In simple terms, a micro wedding is an abbreviated celebration of marriage that has only a handful of invited guests (normally 20 or less), is shorter in duration and is simpler in format, relaxed in atmosphere and less stress to organize than a traditional wedding. Why have a micro wedding? It can be much easier to keep sight of your budget when there are less guests. Micro weddings allow a couple to focus on just the important parts of their day with the people who are most important to them.

Whether you choose one of these themes, or you have something else special in mind, your theme should be one of your first decisions while planning your special day. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen apparel, colors, décor, and maybe even venue all depend on the wedding theme.
