Trends and Predictions for Weddings 2020

 In Media

The trends are always evolving!  Textures, colours, activities and design styles… and it’s all very exciting!  The DreamGroup Planners got together and brainstormed some predictions for the coming season… Happy Pinning!

DreamGroup Founding Principal Planner Genève McNally:

  • Charcuterie Grazing Boards featuring specialty cheeses, artisan cured meats, seasonal berries, artisanal crackers, nuts, olives, fresh blooms and foliage Cocktail Receptions or Late-Night Snacks are ALL the rage! They offer a lovely interactive and visually inspiring way to provide guests with sustenance!

  • Playing up the Groom’s visibility and ownership of the wedding… More attention being given to groom’s involvement in the wedding from custom suits and fashion accessories, on day transportation with luxury exotic cars, to pre-wedding and wedding day experiences like hot shaves, shoe shining, facial and spa treatments, etc.
  • Boomerang photobooth – I love this one taken at DreamGroup’s 15th Anniversary Party by the wonderful Lucky Booth with our custom Neon Sign created by Steveston Creative!!
  • Incorporating unique furniture in rich colours, designs & textures into the ceremony seating. Vibrant Velvets!
  • Nutritious and thoughtful Wedding Day Party sustenance!

  • Custom removeable decals on vehicles is a wonderful way to add something personal w/o breaking the bank! Makes for great IG worthy photo moments!

  • Vintage Cars are back baby! After a couple years of a seemingly lower interest they are making a comeback with a beautiful vengeance!  Also incorporating luxury vehicles in the plan is also very big right now!  Used for Groom’s Arrival and Bride & Groom Transportation from Ceremony to Reception.

  • Pampas grass
  • Llamas and other live animals continues to be popular
  • Friday and Sunday weddings
  • Off-season weddings – March, April, May, September, October
  • Vintage chic, not rustic….
  • “Cinematography“ in place of “videography” – couples are spending just as much money on wedding cinematography as they are on photography.
  • Mountain, forest, riverside elopements. Intimate and meaningful in place of traditional ceremonies.
  • Rental chairs make a big impact for a minimal cost.
  • Host bar with limited alcohol offerings at key points throughout the wedding but still meaningful and personalized beverage options
  • Sweet & salty late-night snack
  • Custom cookie favors


DreamGroup Planner Bonnie Wong:

  • Mismatched bridesmaid dresses is still going strong with same/different styles in a variety of shades, textures, or cuts to bring out each bridesmaid’s personality and style in a cohesive and stylish way.

DreamGroup Planner Sandy Hoong:

  • It’s all about Individuality for 2020… creating an atmosphere and overall vibe that is bespoke as opposed to being led by trends!
  • Multi-day extravaganza
  • Dramatic Cakes with edible flowers, Sustainable options, Fragrant Bouquets –featuring locally grown 5 mile seasonal blooms, scented florals such as lavender, freesias, lilacs, sweet peas…and herbs…rosemary, sage, mint, thyme!
  • Statement Blooms – If working with a tighter budget focus on one statement flower and build around it with seasonal options.
  • Individuality is HUGE! Signature cocktails, to big bold fashion or subtle fuss-free dresses…something that looks and feels good to showcase the personality.
  • Embroidery with personal messages – sometimes big and bold like on the veil for all to see or understated and private “hidden” in the dress design.
  • Charitable donations instead of favors is increasingly popular.
  • Vibrant POPS of colour to add personality.

  • Environmentally conscious weddings
  • Throwing tradition out the window
  • Celebrating our differences that bring us together
  • Destination! Destination! Destination! Especially “local” destination weddings like Grouse Mountain, Whistler, Vancouver Island, Squamish, etc.
