Zero Waste Weddings
Many brides are aiming for zero waste weddings and try to reduce the carbon footprint of their wedding, and this can be done in many ways such as repurposing flowers, plant-based stationery, and hiring suppliers who know about this and can help out.
Second Hand Glam
One of the most popular ways for a sustainable wedding is for brides to consider vintage or secondhand dresses, veils, and the grooms to go for secondhand suits as well.
Some grooms are even going for wood bow ties, recycled gold wedding rings, and more.
Couples are being more thoughtful when choosing their wedding menu items, which means choosing more vegan options with fresh locally sourced fruits and vegetables.
Small Sized Weddings
We expect to see a lot of smaller weddings in 2020 in comparison to the large luxurious weddings, with fewer wedding guests and less food and drink.
In 2020 we'll see more wedding stationery and invitation cards made of recycled paper and soy-based inks. Many couples are also going for email invites.
