The Meghan and Harry royal wedding showed that there are elegance and class in simplicity. Simple lines in classy ceremony dresses, paired with dramatic veils are trending strongly.

3. Bridesmaid dress trends
it is becoming common to see bridesmaids in different gowns. The trick here is to match the general aesthetic but cater to individual bridesmaid skin tones and body shapes. The trend is to have the bride pick her wedding dress palette and silhouette then leave each bridesmaid to experiment with what works for her. This means you can have 2-3 shades in the bridesmaid’s dresses.
4. Wedding décor and flowers trends
Simple but sophisticated is the trend in 2020 when it comes to décor and flowers. Initials on the napkins, simple one-piece bouquets on vintage furniture, a tastefully done floral arch, and another simple to implement ideas can make a big difference in changing the ambiance. Small bouquets are more preferred to the showy monstrosities of the past.
5. The wedding day
Few wedding locations can match the eccentricity of Vegas. Your wedding day is more about you as the wedding couple rather than playing to the gallery. Your tastes and preferences should be reflected in the décor, entertainment, and event catering. You can have class in simplicity with a thoughtful event planner. The idea is for the wedding to be a day to enjoy each other’s company on your big day and the audience to love it or hate it if they so wish.
Weddings are also celebrating more rituals, customs, and traditions from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. One of the more colorful weddings was that of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas during which Christian and Hindu customs were observed. If you and your partner are of different backgrounds, your wedding day is perfect for blending.
Ask the wedding planner to have some desert flowers and shrubs in the decorations. This lends a natural and relaxed look, especially for a garden wedding. While roses and azaleas are still impressive, there is an element of eccentricity to match the Vegas vibe. There are a lot of interesting species in the Nevada desert to make for interesting and colorful decorations.
6. Sustainability trends
The sustainability trend is strong for many events, occasions, and generally way of doing things. This is more so in Vegas where extreme temperatures are a reality. Do invitations on WhatsApp, Facebook email, and other digital media instead of paper, ask for sustainably farmed foods, wildflowers and shrubs. Some wedding event planners offer all-vegan menus. You can also insist that portions be sensibly served, any excess food be distributed to the needy, and guest leftovers be composted.
You can extend the sustainability requirement to your vendors. What is their carbon footprint? You can cut fuel emissions by insisting that all products be sourced from locality. The décor should be reusable; the flowers be donated where they can bring cheer, for example, the local home for the elderly.
