Stylish Bridal Gown Sleeves
Stylish bridal gown sleeves are a bridal gown trend that is oh-so chic while elevating any bridal look! Flutter sleeves, bell sleeves, draped jewels and off-the-shoulder long sleeves are only a few of the stylish bridal gown sleeves we saw in weddings in 2020. How absolutely adorable are these brides and their stylish sleeves?

Velvet Bridesmaid Dresses
What’s better than your girls standing by your side? Your girls standing by your side in velvet bridesmaid dresses! Velvet made a strong statement in 2020, and velvet bridesmaid dresses add the prefect variety to any wedding look for your desired bridesmaid style. We’re definitely on board of the velvet bridesmaid dresses train for 2021!
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!
Specialty drinks were already one of our favorite weddings trends, and as if they couldn’t get any better, 2020 put this trend on wheels! Drink carts brought cuteness and a touch of fun to weddings this last year. As one of the latest trends of 2020, bubbly drinks, brews and craft coffee carts are a delicious trend we can’t wait to see continue in 2021!
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!
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!

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!

Minimalist Bridal 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!
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’!
Grandmillennial style – or granny chic – was one of the most emergent trends in 2020, even though it’s been around for quite some time. Grandmillenial style emphasizes floral patterns, bold colors and eclectic antiques, creating a blended style that marries a millennial’s modern take on their grandma’s traditional style. As the juxtaposition of minimalism and maximism, grandmillennial style is comfy-cozy and the perfect reflection of the individual’s story and personality. We adore how down-to-earth this unique, vintage and nostalgic trend turned out in these 2020 wedding scenes!
While we love these trends from 2020, we’re way too excited to see all that 2021 has in store! Follow our blog to make sure you’re always on top of the latest trends in the new year!
