Top 10 Bridal Trends for a Stylish 2020 Wedding

The wedding industry seems to be bucking tradition as more Millennials get married. Nowadays it seems every couple planning to get married wants their wedding to be personalised and unique.

Wedding planning takes some time. Many people usually start preparing for their wedding a year or two in advance. Therefore, it’s important to consider what bridal trends will be popular in the coming seasons.

Planning a 2020 wedding? Check out the following wedding event styles we think will be trending next year:

1.  Capes

Brides, capes to compliment your dress as one of the must-haves.  If you’re planning a 2020 wedding, you’ll want to start shopping now for capes.

There are a wide variety of capes available. Some just cover your shoulders and bodice, others are full length and bountiful.

Capes can be simplistic and elegant. Capes can be intricate and extravagant. The choice is yours. Either way, they are a wonderful way of enhancing the bridal look on your big day.

The cape can also serve a practical function of keeping you warm if you plan to marry during the cooler months. Better than having to borrow you granny’s cardigan on the day.

2. Princess Brides

Many still haven’t recovered from the impact of Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. In fact, the influence will likely be seen for a few years to come. Her dress captured the hearts of many throughout the world.

A princess-themed wedding will not only be glamorous but also make you feel like royalty. Go for a simple ball gown instead of a body con dress.

When I was trying on my wedding dress a little girl in the shop said “Look, Mum, a real live princess”

This is your dream come true, you get to wear the princess dress to meet your prince charming at the altar. Just type princess wedding dresses into google and your options are endless.

3.  A Second Look

Traditionally, brides invest in one wedding dress. Break the norm in 2020 and plan a second look. Get two outfits: one for the wedding ceremony and the other one for the evening party.

This used to a trend that is regaining its popularity. Forty years ago, the bride would always have changed from the wedding dress to her going away outfit midway during the wedding party.

A great excuse to do more shopping for a glamorous outfit.

Depending on your destination for your wedding night it means the responsibility of dealing with your wedding dress has been passed on and it is one less thing you have to worry about on your honeymoon.

A more relaxed outfit for the party allows you to relax and enjoy the party. You can dance and move freely, making the most of the time celebrating with family and friends.

4.  Jumpsuits

Every bride wants to stand apart from the rest. To achieve uniqueness, you have to overlook the tradition. Why not replace the traditional wedding dress with a stylish jumpsuit?

Depending on the theme for your wedding, the jumpsuit could match the day perfectly. Consider it to as the second outfit. This will give you great comfort to enjoy your party, while still being the belle of the ball.

5.  Robe Dresses

Courtesy of Meghan Markle, brides are now considering the option of wearing a robe dress for their weddings. A robe dress can be flattering for any body shape.

Brides who are torn between a traditional or modern look should consider a robe dress. These dresses are a wonderful balance of these two looks. The design is crucial, be sure to try on a few options to see what style best suits your figure and taste.

6. Non-traditional Choices

Wedding traditions are now being abandoned as brides strive for adventure. Normally, white has been the traditional bridal colour. However, new shades like gold, champagne and blush are frequently being introduced into the bridal palette.

There are some gorgeous colours variations you can choose to match your skin tone. White is not the best colour for every skin type.

Therefore try various colours and shades to see which colour suits you best. Do not be afraid to ask to see what options are available.

7. Sunday Weddings

Many couples are now opting for Sunday weddings. The couple hosts their family and friends over the weekend for a full celebration.

To start there is a welcome party for all the guests. A lovely way to greet all your guests, many may have travelled long distances to spend the weekend celebrating your wedding.

Everyone is together as you prepare for the wedding ceremony. What a joy to share these moments with those you love the most. Then after all the preparations are complete you enjoy the wedding ceremony and wedding party together.

What a memorable weekend for everyone!

8. Quality Flowers

Brides are now overlooking quantity for quality. Less is more. Agencies offering bridal floral designs have noted that most brides would go for quality flowers, often in a simplistic form. Gone are the days of the big floral bouquets.

Native flowers have been a recent trend. These are often more durable and wilt less than some of the traditional bouquet flowers. Greenery in a bridal bouquet is definitely something to consider as it enhances the overall earthy, natural look of your bouquet.

9. Rusty Palette

Metallic evolution is growing more interesting every day. Just last year, brides were all about silver and gold. Surprisingly, couples are now opting for rust in their wedding palette.

However, ensure you use a bright shade of rust to avoid dullness.

10. Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor weddings will be trending in 2020. This is good news for wild-at-heart couples who would like to have more space and fresh air on their wedding day.

There are many venues offering that rustic, country wedding feel. Many of which are set in some of the most picturesque scenery. The wedding is held at one venue so there is no travelling for guests between the ceremony and reception venue.

Kids have room to roam and let off steam, giving you a family friendly event, that eases everyone's stress levels.
