Our Favourite 2020 Wedding Trends
2020 is well underway here at Gaynes Park and we’re looking forward to another year of fabulous weddings. As always, we can’t wait to see how our couples makes Gaynes Park their own and 2020 looks set to showcase some fantastic wedding trends.
The Big 2020 Wedding Trends
One of the biggest wedding trends for 2020 is a slight continuation from recent years but now, it’s being taken to a whole new level. Ethical and sustainable weddings will be most definitely be one of the biggest 2020 wedding trends and whether you’re doing what you can or planning an entire eco-conscious day, you’ll be in good company.
At Gaynes Park we are always looking at ways to be a more sustainable wedding venue. We use wood from our estate in a biomass boiler to heat the water in the Coach House, have a woodland management programme and every year we pick our Christmas trees from the estate too. We’re conscious of our impact on the environment and try to have a positive effect in any way we can.
Ethical and sustainable strands can run right through your wedding and food, and plant-based wedding menus are going to be big news in 2020. More and more of us are cutting out, or cutting down, our meat consumption and that’s definitely filtering through to wedding food. Our brilliant on-site caterers here at Gaynes Park will work with you to create your perfect wedding menu.
We also have to talk about bridal fashion trends for 2020 and gowns with a Victorian influence are coming through to the forefront. Ellie Goulding brought the Victoriana trend to our attention when she took her vows in a stunning high-necked dress and lots of collections are looking back to this famous period. Alongside the high necks, you’ll notice long, full sleeves, fuller skirts and lots of texture in your fabrics.
Other bridal trends include skirts made with masses of Tulle, coloured gowns and variations on traditional lace. New varieties of graphic lace featuring bold designs will put a spin on one of our favourite bridal fabrics.
Wedding Flowers For 2020
We love seeing all the details that our couples add to the Orangery, Mill Barn and Gather Barn and when it comes to wedding flowers, 2020 is going to be all about unstructured floral arrangements and, thinking about eco-conscious weddings again, lots of florists are going to be ditching floral form and working in a much more natural way. Think also about seasonal flowers, particularly those with fragrance as scented weddings are set to be big this year too.
For the last few years, peonies have been the romantic flower of choice, but 2020 weddings are going to see a change. The dahlia, in all it’s fabulous forms, is going to be super popular this year and with good reason. British grown dahlias have a long season and they come in a range of adorable shapes and colours from pom-pom varieties in sweet pastels to the huge, blowsy Café au Lait dahlia that’s sophisticated and so eye-catching.
