The 2020 wedding season is right around the corner, and at Jenny Fu Studio, we are so excited to see what wedding trends will surface. If the Pantone Color of the Year is any indication, we can expect a continued move towards all things natural paired with simple elegance. We reached out to one of the leaders in the wedding industry, Jove Meyer, to see what wedding trends we should adopt, and which ones we should leave in 2019!

Meet Jove Meyer

Jove and his team specialize in creating personalized weddings that are a reflection of each couple’s unique style, personality and relationship. He believes in a relaxed approach when guiding the planning and design process, creating a fun and stress-free experience.

We asked Jove what he thought the biggest wedding trend of 2020 would be, and this is what he had to say!

“Color will be the biggest trend of 2020. I think couples will lean away from classic whites and neutrals and instead move into colors! Colors can happen in every aspect of the celebration, from the stationery, to the rentals, flowers and food! For couples who love color but are not ready to dive in head first they should focus on pop’s of color, not the whole rainbow!”

“Futobooths”

Wedding photobooths have experienced an ebb and flow in popularity over the years, but we believe they are one of the best forms of entertainment for your guests. Digital photo booths are environmentally friendly – they don’t print anything! They also promote social sharing by offering users the option to download their photos from an online gallery directly onto their phones. Our “Futobooth” also offers videos, GIFs and Boomerangs. If you were thinking of adding a digital wedding photo booth to your reception, let’s chat! We love bringing the “Futobooth” to weddings and giving our clients extra fun memories of the best day of their lives. This wedding trend gets the JF seal of approval!

Small, Intimate Weddings

More and more couples are having smaller weddings, and we are here for it! Not only is having a smaller gathering cost-effective, but it’s also easier to see and speak to everyone. It’s been a breath of fresh air to have wedding parties becoming smaller and smaller as well. The idea of having an honorary bridal party member is fabulous as they can still feel like they’re part of the fun with none of the stress. This is a wedding trend that we can definitely get behind and see rolling into years to come!

The Barn Wedding

They came, they conquered for a few years, and now it’s time to bid adieu to the barn wedding trend. While we love looking at them, the photos of people getting married in forests and barns foster unrealistic expectations. Getting those rustic vibes are easier said than done. Couples don’t always understand that they need to rent equipment in order to do this sort of thing! While the outdoor vibes can stay, we’re ready to retire this wedding trend and put our cowboy boots away in the hall closet.

Fresh and Dried Bouquets

We love the fresh flower wedding trend and hope that fake floral bouquets NEVER make a comeback. Something we’ve been seeing a lot of lately is using dried aromatic flowers as well as fresh ones. Mixing fresh and dried foliage also helps in the saving department if you’re on a tighter budget. Having pieces of dried lavender and eucalyptus also makes for a really beautifully smelling wedding. You can also keep pieces of your dried bouquet for months afterwards!

Wedding Gifts and Registries

Is it safe to say that the majority of couples getting married these days already live together and have everything they need? Back in the day, couples getting married had never lived together, let alone purchase themselves a Crock-Pot for the occasion. This meant that their wedding was an opportunity to get every household item one would need. That’s just not the case anymore. That being said, we totally understand that your grandma may feel weird giving you a card with cash in it. Enter honeymoon registries. We have really been loving seeing newlyweds setting up accounts with registries like Honeyfund! These platforms give people the option of sending money, but for things you’ve preset. This could be dinners out or money towards your flights and accommodation!

“You do you boo! Create a wedding that is a reflection of your style, personality and relationship! Include as much of you as you can, as it is a celebration of your love!”

Jove Meyer

Don’t forget – your wedding is for YOU! If you love fake flowers, DO IT. If you want to elope, DO IT! We’re here to capture every perfect moment for you.
