    Most Chic Wedding Deco & Style Ideas For 2020

     

    The wedding industry is evolving and experiencing a lot of growth when it comes to décor. While some ideas are going out of fashion, others are making a comeback from the past. Choosing the best wedding décor can be the most stressful part of planning for the big day. 

    Since they are personal affairs, no one approach applies to all weddings. However, there are décor trends that you can borrow from other couples and customize to fit your style. 

    Here are some of the trends that will be a big hit going into the year 2020. 

    1. Use of Coral

    Coral as a color has become one of the new wedding trends. It adds a new twist to weddings by adding life to wedding themes. It stood out as the Pantone’s color of 2019, and as it is, it will cross over to 2020 as one of the most popular wedding theme colors. 

    As a vibrant and buoyant color, it can match almost all types of settings, whether indoors or outdoors. It also seamlessly matches the bridal party attire, the cake, and entertainment. Coral is also an excellent choice for a variety of wedding themes ranging from vintage, modern, or even rustic.

    Having flowers in this color can be quite helpful in pulling off the idea of a coral-colored wedding. Finding bridal attire in this color should also be relatively easy. 

     

     

     

     

     

    2. Floral Decorations All The Way

    One of the current trends that will live into 2020 is the use of elegant floral styles. The idea is to incorporate textures and little details that reflect the personality of the couple and family. While using floral decorations, the décor can easily be customized into ruffled or fringed textures. 

    As part of floral decorations, pampus grass has become a popular choice for decoration. It works well for lounges, aisle décor, and tablescapes, and the secret is to avoid overdoing it. 

     

     

     

     

    3. Going Green

    Eco-friendly wedding themes are on the increase, informed by the need to reduce the carbon footprint. Eco-friendly wedding décor ideas include choosing a nature-friendly venue.  A place that is naturally endowed with live flowers and green scenery will require less synthetic décor. 

    If you must incorporate your own décor ideas, adopt more ecological approaches. Choose to use flowers that have been grown organically. Instead of using electricity for lighting, use solar panels at the venue. For your wedding cards, use recycled seed paper and reduce the amount of printing you do.

     

    4. Table Setting

    The way food is served at weddings is a trend that is changing. One concept that is gaining momentum is grazing tables. These refer to areas full of a mix of sweet and savory snacks. The idea is to keep the guests encouraged to come back for more servings if they like.

    This is one area where the green concept can easily pull through. The caterers are challenged to source for more local and organic produce for the grazed tables. They also are coming up with more creative ways of utilizing the vegetarian menu for a “farm to table” experience. As for the drinks, brewing some wine and having it delivered in real bourbon barrels is a significant trend.  

     

     

     

    5. Wedding Hairstyles

    Although not directly related to décor, how the bride and her maids look is also crucial for the big day. Hairstyles dictate how well you pull off the wedding theme, especially boho and rustic weddings. Among the popular hairstyle trends, this year are half ups half downs, French braids, and all types of braided hairstyles.

    Hair accessories have also been part of the picture. Large flowers, hairpins with flowers, or hairlines are simple ways to add style to the different hairstyles. For something simpler, go for a sleek ponytail or trendy mermaid hair coloring.

     

     

    Take Away

    Wedding decoration styles come and go, but some are here to stay. This year has seen the entrance of décor ideas that will last long into 2020 due to their elegance. Most of them are inspired by the need to do things differently and ditch tradition. 

    One of the trends has to do with color. Coral is the one topping the list as there is just so much it can blend with effortlessly. Other trends have to do with food arrangements, wedding hairstyles, and utilization of eco-friendly concepts.

    Don’t limit yourself to these ideas. With creativity, you can come up with an idea which people will borrow and celebrate in the coming year.

    Known for its sunny beaches, California is a growing choice for newlyweds. Places like Santa Barbara are available for peaceful romantic days but the option for a busy day out in L.A is also on the cards. It’s ideal for any couple wanting to relax or go on an adventure. Snorkeling, hikes and even sea kayaking are all common day trips in California, and you never know, you might bump into a couple of actors on the beach.

    Greece

    Mykonos has been dubbed the new St. Tropez, a relaxing holiday that never seems tire from the perfect blue views. It’s become a famous craft beer location spot for holidaymakers and premiered the largest pool in Europe in 2017.

Ideally, you could hire a car for your stay as most of the neighboring towns are less than a thirty-minute drive.

    Will Rain Ruin Your Wedding Day?

    You have taken the time to plan a beautiful outdoor ceremony, whether in a park, plantation, courtyard, or the beach…it is your vision, to be married under a clear blue sky with a couple puffs of friendly white clouds…

    Over 90% of the time this happens!! However, I always recommend having a Plan B, in case of bad weather!! This Spring, we have skirted a couple of storms, we had to move a wedding from a 4pm time to a 1pm time to avoid the storms, and we had rain at the end of one wedding. We are as flexible as possible with the weather.

    We watch the weather very closely, and 1 week prior to your ceremony, we discuss the weather, and if we need a potential Plan B. If the weather is questionable, 2 days prior to the wedding, we will again discuss the options as well as a deadline for when the decision needs to be made by.

    So what do we do if it rains?

    First thing we check is when is the rain. The general weather may say 60% chance of rain, but if that is in the morning and you have an afternoon wedding, no problem! Next we check the where. It could be pouring in Mount Pleasant, and not a drop in Charleston, or Folly Beach. How flexible are we with timing? If it is an elopement it is easier to say afternoon storms, so let’s do the wedding at 2pm instead of 6pm. If we have 30 guests, it is harder to change time.In most locations, there is a covered area close by. We also check with where the reception is being held to see if we can use the space, or if there is an area at your accommodations.

    Often we hear from brides, “we don’t care if it’s raining, we are going ahead with the ceremony!”

    We understand that thinking, however, if it is thunder and lightning, for safety, Reynolds Treasures and any vendor contracted under Reynolds Treasures will not be out in the weather. If it is a soft rain, the officiant can still perform the ceremony, but most photographers and musicians will not allow their equipment in the damaging weather. Each vendor has the right to make a judgement call with their equipment or instruments.

    We don’t want to scare you away from your dream outdoor wedding! We just want you to have a plan just incase!!! We perform over 250 weddings a year, and rain may affect 10% of the weddings, and we need to make changes to about 1%, while the others the storms dissipate. As always Reynolds Treasures will always work with you and help you along the way to avoid any last minute worries!!
