Baby’s Breath

Dainty and delicate, baby’s breath is the loveliest newest floral trend to set the stage in 2020. As the sweetest addition to any floral installation, baby’s breath is the perfect addition to any floral display – any season, any style and any theme. In bright white or soft pastels, bunches of baby’s breath are a unique trend we know we’ll see in the new year!

Minimalist Wedding Gowns

Sometimes less is more, and if these minimalist bridal gowns are any evidence, going minimal can really make a huge statement! We can’t get over how simple yet extremely elegant these brides were in 2020 with their minimalist gowns. So simple yet so lovely – and we couldn’t love it more!

Textured Wedding Cakes

If it’s true that a cake is only as good as it looks, than these textured wedding cakes must taste incredible! From textured fondant to layered buttercream, the stunning features of these unique textured wedding cakes instantly caught our eye. 2021, this trend is coming for you!

Pastel Palettes

Pastel palettes are a timeless wedding trend that made big statements in 2020. Light and bright wedding scenes stole the show this last year, as light pinks, blues and purples infuse these palettes to create a pastel dream. We can’t help but absolutely love all of the soft and subtle hues from these 2020 wedding scenes!

Unique Seating Charts

Unique seating charts came to life in 2020, and we adore how bold and fun these ones are! Seating charts are a great way to incorporate a little fun into wedding decor and reflect unique elements about each couple. What an adorable way to bring your guests a little bit of extra joy as they find their seats for the celebration!

Pampas Grass

Pampas grass is a classic boho wedding element that definitely made its appearance known in 2020! Used in almost every floral installation imaginable, pampas grass is a trend we know we’ll see make even more appearances in the new year. Gorgeous in themselves or paired with complementing dried florals, pampas grass is a trend we’re LIVING for, and these scenes are the epitome of pampas grass in the most stunning ways!

Wedding Gown Capes

There’s the wedding veil, but have you ever seen the wedding gown cape? Wedding gown capes are a bridal gown trend that is oh-so chic while elevating any bridal look. Elegant and sophisticated, wedding gown capes made a HUGE statement in 2020 that we are absolutely here for. How absolutely lovely are these brides with their wedding gown capes?

Craft Cocktails

Nothing is better than a craft cocktail, and 2020 definitely brought these tasty sips into style! Perfectly customizable, craft cocktails are the ultimate personalized wedding trend of 2020. Cheersing with a drink at the end of the day is the only way we want to be ending all of our celebrations. Cheers!

Neon Signs

Neon signs are an edgy and moody decor piece that can brighten up any wedding scene – literally! One thing we love about neon signs is their customization and the sweetest personal touch they add to traditional wedding decor, while being perfectly non-traditional in the most stunning way. While being completely versatile, neon signs fit just about any and every wedding theme and style. We can’t wait to see this trend continue into 2021!

Balloon Installations

Whimsy at it’s finest, balloon installations popped into our favorite wedding trends of 2020, and it’s easy to see why! Balloons add just the right amount of visual interest to any wedding reception, and we adore how unique and non-traditional they are. These displays took creativity to a whole new level, whether being multi-functional or just being an eye-catching focal point of these wedding scenes. With a balloon display, these celebrations were definitely poppin’!
