Top 55 Wedding Trends in 2020

From Virtual Wedding Ceremonies to Postponed Wedding Registries

— January 24, 2021 — Lifestyle
These 2020 wedding trends range from virtual wedding ceremonies to postponed wedding registries.

While wedding website Shaddi.com recently launched its 'Weddings from home' program to ensure couples can celebrate their big day virtually during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, WedBrilliant is a "premier wedding planning online service" that ensures event planning can be facilitated safely and completely online.

Another notable example is Aruba Tourism Authority's Happily Ever After Guarantee. The postponable booking policy was launched as an option for couples planning to wed in 2021 and allows them to put event dates on hold for up to one year after their chosen date -- all without added fees and penalties.

Overall, these 2020 wedding trends speak to growing uncertainties around COVID-19 and its ongoing effects on public gatherings by focusing on virtual promotions, event planning features and more.

For more wedding trends in the year ahead, check out Trend Hunter's 2021 Trend Report.
