2020 Wedding Floral Trends – What can we expect in the coming year?
As wedding and event florists, we often get asked to weigh in on the hot floral trends and color palettes we see our clients asking for in the coming season. And, since our average wedding client books our services between 6 and 18 months before their wedding date, we are in an excellent position to dish all the dirt! (Or is it compost??)
So, here it is, our predictions for the popular 2020 Wedding Floral Trends!
First up: ceiling installations or hanging flowers. Oh my goodness, who doesn’t love entering a room and being showered in roses or lush hanging greenery?? 2020 brides love utilizing every inch of their ceremony and reception venues – from the floor all the way up to the ceiling. These hanging installations can incorporate dried leaves and pampas grass, clouds of colored baby’s breath, textured greenery, or a profusion of fresh floral – there are no limits for the 2020 bride.
This trend has been hot for a few years now. Check out our 2018 blog post all about hanging floral installations: Hanging Floral Installations
And this fabulous ballroom wedding reception featuring a 14′ white floral chandelier! Neetha and Binni’s Luxe East Indian Fusion Wedding (also pictured here on the left!)
Below are some more hanging installation projects we created for recent weddings and events – what do you think?
Ceremony Floral Backdrops
Floral arches are an old wedding standby, as traditional and trusty as it gets. And while floral arches certainly aren’t going anywhere, 2020 brides are looking to put a new, fresh spin on this old standard. We are starting to see brides looking to combine draping and floral in dramatic shapes, or hanging individual flower heads from a wooden structure, or even playing around with open mesh walls in which flowers are woven in intricate patterns. Another 2020 favorite is the deconstructed floral arch, where different parts of the floral arch are missing entirely, creating the illusion that the flowers are floating in space.
We are in love with these beautiful examples to the right (designed by Seattle’s own Leah Erickson) and below seen on Ruffled Blog, Mrs To Be, Glaminati, Hey Wedding Lady, and Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.
For more ceremony inspiration, check out our past blog post all about ceremony arches: Ceremony Arches — Styles, Shapes, and Designs
And you can see a fun example of an asymmetrical deconstructed floral arch we designed in this post: Ina and Ned’s Summer Country Club Wedding
Greenery continues to be a hot trend in 2020. Greenery hangs from chandeliers, climbs tent walls, drapes down the center of long reception tables, and adorns fireplaces and doorways. With our collective love of all things organic, boho, and minimalist, is it any wonder that greenery is so popular? We say bring on the greens, like in this image to the left: we designed this fabulous reception table overhang for one of our recent wedding couples

And, of course, this wedding was one of our favorites: Greenery Summer Wedding at the Woodmark Hotel
Hot Color Palettes in 2020
The upcoming 2020 colors are a mix of old and new: trusty blush is sticking around for another year, again paired with a deeper color like burgundy, navy, or brown for added drama. Green and white is another color combo that can be relied on to be popular this coming year. A new color palette that our team is over-the-moon excited about this year is yellow and peach. 2020 brides are getting on the yellow train: we are seeing Italian riviera lemon yellow, moody mustard and ochre, and sweet blushing butter yellow and peach. Swoon!!

And for a classic – and still totally popular! – green and white combo, try Marielle and Codey’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding.
