From baby llamas to silent discos, there isn’t a wedding trend that we haven’t openly celebrated (or secretly scratched our heads about). And by this point, we’ve pretty much seen it all—or so we thought. The Wedding Academy recently released its 2020 International Wedding Trend Report, a guide so chockablock with fresh ideas that we’re practically counting down the days until wedding season. We scanned the entire 175-page document for the most inspirational and nontraditional ideas, and these three are our faves—now where’s the champagne?

Interactive Food Experiences

Take a page from Claire Olshan’s dinner party playbook and have your guests play with their meal. Live culinary experiences and edible decor seem primed to take over this year: Catering pro Erin Corriveau suggests gastronomy dessert bars (“Science is fun to eat!”) and crepe stations with a shave-able chocolate wheel. 

Large Floralscapes

Dress (the venue) to impress: 2020 is all about drama. This means forgoing tiny bouquets for an impressive flower display, whether it’s a single statement piece or a hanging installation. Jenni Hill-Horsburgh of Little Hill Floral Designs even suggests using fresh blooms to create a living ceremony arch. 

Royal Blue

Technically, the verbiage used in the report includes all shades of blue, from dusty aqua to deep navy, but with Pantone’s color of the year in mind, we’re choosing to err on the side of vibrant. Pair the tone with terracotta for a palette that’s on trend and fun—nary a blush pink in sight.
