We can only capture moments once, so make the most of it! Wedding trends evolve every year, bringing fresh and fun ideas to personalize the biggest day of your life. Get inspired with these six ideas for the new year.
1. Inclusive Menus
Weddings are memorable for many reasons. While couples remember their wedding as the day they officially tied the knot, guests remember other things, like the food (for better or for worse!) Couples are seeking to make their wedding inclusive to their guests and menus are no exception. Vegan? We got you. Vegetarian? Peanut allergy? Gluten-free? Not a problem. Personal attention to guests’ food restrictions and preferences make them feel special and cared for.
2. Alternative hair pieces
While a classic veil never loses its enchantment, it is not the only way to adorn your locks on this fairytale day. From headbands and vintage hair pins, to choosing something budget-friendly or “something blue”, check out these beautiful ways to add some hair-candy to your tresses.
3. A well-planned photo keeps a moment from running away
Engagement pictures capture the essence of love at its peak, and in 2020, engagement shoots are getting even more exciting and dramatic. Showcase your upcoming nuptials in epic fashion with a private charter aboard our vintage yacht Lady Grebe. From grandiose skyscraper backdrops on the Chicago River to skyline sunsets on Lake Michigan, endless breathtaking photos await.
4. Flowers: big and bigger
Flowers add beauty and ambiance to any wedding, and this year, flowers are going big. Go beyond the classic centerpiece with large garlands of blooms trailing off the ends of tables or create a flower wall for that perfect insta-worthy shot. Even consider flowers as a parting gift for guests! And don’t let the flower fun end there. Use flowers in your hair, as a necklace statement piece, as edible blooms for food and drink decor, and more. See more trends here.
It’s a throwback to the 80’s, wedding dress style. Think long or puffy sleeves, harkening to the classic 80’s look but with a cutting edge approach. Suits are also a sleek alternative that are comfortable, figure flattering and completely on-trend. See more trends for 2020 here.
Last year bold colors made their mark on the wedding scene and that color trend will continue through 2020.
