SUSTAINABILITY / CONSCIOUS MATERIALS
We’ve felt this one coming for awhile now, but at the end of 2019 it was clear no-waste wedding initiatives were top-of-mind for couples and planners alike. In the new year, we expect to see a surge in sustainable materials like natural wood, un-dyed yarns, recycled textiles, compostable dinnerware, more plants than flowers, and re-useable everything!

Western-inspired fashion is in — and we’re here for it. Whether you’re adding a subtle touch of mid-west flair or going all out west, this trend will not disappoint! Pro tip: Ask your guests to add a western touch to their outfits to have them join in on the themed fun.

Off-whites, earthy grays, tactile beiges will have a major moment this year. With a neutral color palette that gives off all the authentic vibes, and we’re loving how this trend can so effortlessly be merged with the other “2020 trends to obsess” over.

White and gold aren’t going out of style anytime soon — and neither are these gold-heeled boots!
