Weddings in 2020 look very different from how they used to. Today, masks are the must-have accessory, backyards are the hottest reception venue, and cocktails are served from trays (so long, open bar).
Unfortunately, to hold a wedding with all the bells and whistles, couples will most likely have to postpone until at least next fall. But, you wouldn’t be alone in putting off the big day. Over half of respondents (66%) to the Brides American Wedding Study said they chose to defer their 2020 nuptials.
For your décor, lean into the antique look with weathered wood tables or mismatched chairs from the flea market. The color palette should be light and airy with plenty of pastels and floral patterns. And, of course, lace is never out of place – either in your tablescapes or wedding attire.
Don’t let uncomfortable shoes or worse, blisters, keep you from dancing the night away at your reception. Take the time to break in new shoes in the weeks leading up to the wedding. You might also consider bringing a backup pair of flats – just in case!.
Perhaps you hail from a town known for lobster rolls, your first date was over tacos, or you simply can’t imagine saying I do without your beloved (but not exactly wedding staple) bison burger or chicken vindaloo. Even if they’re seemingly too casual, messy or quirky, it’s definitely possible to include your dream foods in your reception menu.
