With every New Year comes a new set of wedding trends and we’re excited to see what’s in store for 2020. As we look back on previous years, we can make some predictions and bring you some inspirational wedding trends for 2020.
Throughout the decades, we’ve seen many wedding trends come and go. From the puffy sleeves of the 1980s to the crushed velvet of the 1990s, wedding trends are quick to catch on and always pique our interest.
While wedding fashion is constantly changing, so too are all the other elements of a wedding. Food, décor, florals – wedding trends apply to all areas of wedding planning.
We’re excited to see some of these 2020 wedding trends at Markovina Vineyard Estate. It’s going to be a good year!
Bold colours and statement décor
It looks like we’ll see a go-big-or-go-home approach to colour and décor in 2020. This is one of the 2020 wedding trends we look forward to the most as it allows our couples to let their creative streak shine.
We’ve seen bold colours creeping through slowing down over the past few years. Many couples have moved away from the previously fashionable pastel hues and added pops of colour to their attire, décor and floral arrangements.
When couples opt for bold colours and statement décor, we see them having so much fun with the endless creativity this offers. It not only adds a touch of their personality to the wedding day, but it also creates a very memorable environment for their guests.
Sustainability is on everyone’s minds at the moment and couples are now looking for ways to be more eco-conscious in their wedding planning.
We think this will be one of the most popular wedding trends in 2020 and we’ve seen it slowly evolve over the past few years. We’ve learned that sustainability can be achieved in many ways. From sourcing ethical fabrics to going plastic-free on the day, every little bit counts.
In 2020, upcycling will be key to achieving sustainability in wedding décor and attire as couples strive to cut back on unnecessary waste. There’s truth in the saying ‘one man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ and we will see more upcycled goods featured in many areas of 2020 weddings.
In 2020, formalities will be a take-it-or-leave-it aspect of a wedding. While many people still consider wedding traditions and formalities important, we are well and truly in an age where it simply doesn’t matter how formal or casual you choose your wedding to be.
For decades now, wedding couples have been slowly phasing out the idea that formalities are essential in a wedding. Some couples choose to keep formalities to a minimum while others stay away from them altogether.
Formalities such as the first dance and the cutting of the cake are just some of the areas we’ve seen couples remove from their wedding day. That’s not to say they’re not important, it just shows that we live in a time where anything goes.
In 2020, have your wedding the way you want to have your wedding.
Grazing platters get cooler and more creative every year. This hot wedding trend offers the perfect nibble station for guests between the ceremony and reception when the bride and groom are off having their photos taken.
With such an array of tasty treats, guests always flock to a grazing table. While it’s a great source of sustenance for a long day, it’s also a common meeting point where guests can have a chance to get to know each other.
In 2020, we’ll see grazing platters taken to a whole new level. Savoury or sweet, we’ll see grazing platter creativity peak this year.
Next-level amenity baskets
Wedding guests love a good freebie and bathroom amenity baskets always offer a nice surprise.
Particularly in summer weddings, bathroom amenity baskets provide guests with some handy necessities to freshen up during a day in the sun. From sunscreen to deodorant, the typical amenity basket has all your wedding staples.
In 2020, these will be taken up a notch.
This year, couples will work harder to make amenity baskets a little bit extra, making their trip to the bathroom rather memorable. From a selection of lipsticks for the ladies to a variety of cologne options for men, bathroom amenity baskets will be a source of excitement for all guests.
We’ll see wedding couples really think outside the square when providing for their guests in 2020 and bathroom amenity baskets are just one of the many ways in which they’ll do this.
Looking ahead, 2020 is going to be a busy and exciting year. We’ve got plenty of wedding bookings to look forward to and next summer is already starting to fill up. If you’re planning a wedding, now is the time to call us to ensure we can book a space for you.
We only host one wedding per day which allows our couples to take their time and have full use of the grounds. As a spacious yet private wedding venue, we have plenty of room for large wedding parties while still offering the perfect venue for a more intimate wedding.
Our food and beverage menu is what really sets us apart from the rest. We take a lot of pride in the food we serve here at Markovina Vineyard Estate and will work with you to create the perfect menu for your day. We can cater to all dietary requirements.
There’s a reason we call ourselves an all-inclusive venue and that’s because we include everything you need for the perfect wedding in our wedding packages. A premium venue, luxury menu, great entertainment, decorations and helpful staff are what you can look forward to with a wedding at Markovina.
Give us a call to arrange a time to pop up to check out the venue. We’d love to take you on a tour of our grounds and talk about how we can help make your wedding the day you’ve always dreamed of.
