Top Wedding Trends for 2020

At Clock Barn, we’re already excited for 2020 and we can’t wait to welcome all the couples who’ll be celebrating with us in the next 12 months. Every year, we see a change in wedding trends and 2020 looks set to be absolutely spectacular. From new wedding cake ideas and fabulous wedding theme colours to ideas for planning an eco-friendly wedding, there’s a lot to look forward to. Here’s our guide to the top wedding trends we’ll all be falling for over the coming year.

Wedding ideas for 2020

There are so many fantastic ideas appearing for 2020 that it’s hard to know where to start! So, we’ve chosen our favourite new wedding trends that will work particularly well at Clock Barn for this rundown. If you’re looking for a totally trend-led wedding or if you’d just like to a include a few new ideas in your plans, here are the things to look out for over the coming months.

Firstly, let’s talk about décor and in 2020, florals are going to be more important than ever. Suspended floral displays and hanging arrangements will be super popular and for table centres, arrangements that sit above guests when they sit down are going to be big news. For these centrepieces, set your flowers on high structures and let them cascade down towards the table tops. The other trend for 2020 will be aisle ‘meadows’ instead of pew ends of floral chair backs. These arrangements line your aisle, looking as if they’ve grown there and they’re perfect for a barn wedding. After your ceremony, move the arrangements to your reception space to everyone can enjoy the blooms again!

Another big trend in wedding décor, particularly for your tables, is all about you. More and more couples will be basing their table decorations around their hobbies and personalities. So, if you’re known for your love of books, films, sport, travel or even baking, gardening or music, finding ways to incorporate props and details into your tablecentres is a great idea. You can use these details alongside flowers or on their own, they work whatever you do!

At Clock Barn, we’re always excited about wedding cake and in 2020, we’ll be seeing lots of creative and dramatic cakes. Bigger, bolder and more impressive, wedding cakes will be less white and more wow in the upcoming year. Show-stopping bakes are sure to steal the show!

Wedding theme colours and wedding dresses

Blush pink has been a colour that we’ve known about for a little while now but in 2020, it’s going to become incredibly popular. Think about blush additions to your stationery, your flowers, your overall décor and even your outfits. There are so many ways to bring blush pink into your wedding and it works so well with other colours.

And that brings us neatly to the Pantone colour of 2020 – Classic Blue. This timeless shade is perfect for weddings as it’s a great accent colour to so many other shades, including blush pink. Soften this strong blue with pastel shades for a romantic look, team it with white for a classic, almost nautical look or mix it with orange tones in autumn for a great look.

When it comes to wedding dresses, there are a few trends that we love already. Firstly, graphic lace is going to be everywhere in 2020. This trend takes our current love of lace to whole new levels with big, bold patterns and a stronger look that’s perfect for modern country brides. Wedding gowns with a Victorian influence are another style to look for. Think about high necks, billowing sleeves and a high, almost Edwardian waistline. Finally – bows. Big statement bows on dresses are back and we are so thrilled about this!

The eco-friendly wedding trend

If there’s one overall trend for 2020, it’s got to be the eco-friendly wedding. From mouth-watering vegan wedding breakfasts or feasts that feature sustainable and local produce, our on-site catering team will be serving more and more eco-friendly food in 2020. If you want to know more about your food and exactly where it comes from, just ask and we’ll be happy to help.

To be as eco-conscious as possible as you plan your wedding, there are so many things that you can do. Think about the card used in your wedding stationery and ingredients in your wedding cake. Ask about the materials and manufacturing processes when you order your wedding dress. Consider seasonal wedding flowers and wedding food and look for suppliers local to Clock Barn if you want to cut down on travel and emissions. If we all do what we can, we can make a big difference.
