Looking Back at the Best Wedding Trends of 2020

by Brides of Oklahoma

Through all of the highs and lows of 2020, we can confidently say one thing – this year brought some of the BEST wedding trends we’ve ever seen, and we’re overjoyed to get to share them with you! Each year, we love looking back and remembering the trends that stood out to us, and 2020 is no different. There’s no better way to ring in the new year than looking back through all the remarkable trends we saw this year – from statement florals and decor to minimalist gowns to putting the “cute” in charcuterie and everything in between. Our expert team of Oklahoma wedding vendors more than delivered on the trends this year, bringing them to life in ways we couldn’t help fall in love with. Take a look back with us as we recap our top 10 weddings trends of 2020, and get all the inspiration you’ll need for 2021. Cheers to the new year!

Grandmillennial Style

Grandmillennial style – or granny chic – was one of the most emergent trends in 2020, even though it’s been around for quite some time. Grandmillennial 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!

Champagne Displays

Champagne displays add just the right amount of visual interest to any wedding reception, and we adore how unique and non-traditional they are! These champagne 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 champagne display, these celebrations were definitely poppin’!

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!

Color Block Backdrops

Color block backdrops allow you to bring any color into your wedding scene, whether it be pastels, terracotta or bright citrusy hues! Besides being multifunctional either as an altar or photo booth setting, color block backdrops made these wedding scenes unforgettable with all of their unique touches. We’re definitely riding the color block train into 2021!

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!

Grazing Tables/Charcuterie Displays

Charcuterie – or as we like to say, char*cute*rie – is a delectable and innovative wedding trend that emerged from 2020! Whether as a spread on a grazing table or a small charcuterie tray, our team of vendors knocked it out of the park with the creativity in these displays that can’t help but make our mouths water. As one of the latest trends of 2020, we’re excited to see where 2021 takes this delicious trend!

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!

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!

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!

Stunning Seating Charts

Stunning 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!
