Reading the mood of the nation, it would be easy to surmise that we all cannot quite believe that it is already the year 2020. If there is one thing we have learnt, though, it is that we cannot stop time and we cannot stop change. As with both fashion and interior design trends, wedding trends change with the time. We have seen many modern weddings employ rustic motifs (which unsurprisingly still loom today), as well as vintage emblems which speak to the most memorable aspects of our parents’ generation in the worlds of weddings…
In 2020, we will see many of these trends recycled, as with the sustainability movement that characterises the focus of our nation; we will also see a heightened interest in city weddings. As more and more of us move toward the UK’s big cities, it is without doubt that bridal couples will begin to transform old-standing city buidings into floral infused wedding locations! Another trend that has been on the rise since the early 10’s is the flux of couples opting for destination weddings, and it is difficult to see this losing popularity in the next few years at least! Luckily then, we have done our research, and have spoken with some of the most 2020-ready wedding suppliers overseas. Read on to find out who can help you host a wedding that speaks to your traditional values and your optimism for the roaring 20’s!
Perhaps ones of the most important parts of organising a wedding is making sure that you have a wedding photographer whose style you admire and who allows you to enjoy your day, knowing that at the end of it you will have a brilliant wedding album you can look back on in the years to come. In recent years photojournalism style photography, like that of Natan Photography and Antonio Micelli has dominated wedding photography trends. Taking candid shots of the best and natural moments of your wedding day means that both Antonio and Natan give the illusion that they weren’t even there! This style will still be at the height of fashion in 2020, but we predict that we may also see an interest in portrait wedding photography, which was fashionable in the late 20th century. Both Luca Bottaro and Samantha Capitano Photography mix this style of photography with that of photojournalism, so you have a choice of styles which you think will best capture the atmosphere of your wedding day!
Raffaele Vestito Photo&Portrait are another wedding supplier who we recommend for your wedding day! They manage to find the ideal balance between perfection and originality, which, based on your preferences and availability, are used to create a customised package for you to remember forever!

Bridal make up trends also see change, and in 2020, we predict that bridal make up will stay relatively minimal as we look to wedding dress trends (using embroidery and such fabrics) to make a statement. One make up trend that we do see being toyed with in 2020 is the lipstick colour, and finish. A matte bold lip is super on-trend for 2020, while the rest of the bridal group’s faces are natural and minimal. Laura Make Up, who has more than 15 years in the business, is constantly keeping up with wedding trends, so you can be sure to be in safe hands with her! Equally, io amo il mio parrucchiere, are a dynamic team focused on giving their brides the look they want, whether that be minimal or bold!
Wedding stationary and flowers have also been aspects of wedding organisation that has changed much over time. Gone are the super-regal cream coloured motifs… 2020 paves the way for super-sleek details that reveal just a little of the overall theme of the wedding day! The Wedding Letters di Laura Mazzetti‘s designs are very indicative of 2020 style – the sleek calligraphy speaks to a new age of modernism, which Blue Rose Events di Simi Maria Cristina‘s floral arrangements are often created using a dominant flower with pastel coloured supporter flowers and smaller bouquets make way for the showstopping wedding dress design that has characterised wedding style in recent years.
Catering will also undoubtedly change in the next decade. As more and more people opt for a more plant-based diet, it is up to the catering companies to match this demand. One of our favourite wedding catering suppliers in Italy is Mencarelli Group. They present beautiful placed platters which are never left empty!
The 20’s in the year of weddings is about respecting the traditions of the earlier years while welcoming change in all the various aspects. If you’re planning a wedding this year, make sure to contact any of our recommended suppliers to give your guests a wedding they will remember forever!
