Top Wedding Trends in 2020
Wedding trends are often an evolution of last year's ideas, which in turn reference the continuation of themes from the year before that. Some concepts – like vintage wedding themes – have come full circle and resurface as "new" trends.We ask our wedding planners across 39 hotels in Thailand to share their predictions on wedding trends that will be prevalent in 2020.Across our 16 brands in the kingdom, personalization continues to be a top driver for curated weddings next year. Our Thailand wedding packages are customized to each unique event. From bringing in street food vendors that are meaningful to the couple to unconventional wedding gowns and the most Instagrammable Koh Samui wedding venues, couples are increasingly involved in every single aspect of their celebration.Here we take a look at three big 2020 wedding trends which may spark more ideas for your own upcoming celebrations.Ideas for infusing sustainability into wedding celebrations include a tree planting unity ceremony – the perfect representation of the nurture and love that goes into marriage. A tropical spin on this is coral planting and interested couples can contact a JW Marriott Phuket wedding planner to ask about conservation activities at the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation.Locally sourced ingredients can play a big part in the reception menu, while floral decoration can showcase the beauty of tropical plants found in the hotel's vicinity. Particularly in resort destinations, the honeymoon is often a continuation of the wedding reception, which can help minimize the carbon footprint of the celebration.Guest participation in the wedding ceremony itself is also encouraged more often with features like a flower bar – where guests are engaged in making their own floral headpieces or lapel pins – or a DIY corner where guests can fill paper cones with their choice of petals for the petal toss.A beachfront villa in a Thai resort destination easily doubles as the ideal wedding venue for an intimate Thai wedding ceremony. With just the core group of friends and family in attendance, a wedding gathering can become a wider celebration of love with tailored activities designed for the couple to spend time with those nearest and dearest to them.Thailand is also a popular destination for vow renewals, during which a married couple can reaffirm their commitment to each other. With a choice of ready-made romantic beach or mountain settings, renewing your promises to one another can be a memorable way to celebrate a milestone anniversary.
