Celebrating the new decade, we love the wedding trends that are hot on the list for 2020. Let’s take a look at how you might incorporate some of them into your country wedding at Pentney Abbey.
All About Pink
When it comes to colour, blush pink is a favourite for the year and it’s easy to see why. Sophisticated and delicate, it’s a flattering shade that suits most skin tones so a perfect choice for bridesmaid dresses. At Pentney Abbey, you might also introduce blush pink to your décor, from petals to line the aisle and chair decorations in the Gatehouse to floral arrangements in the Main Barn. With its neutral décor, our spaces offer a wonderful blank canvas for your chosen colour scheme.
Dress it Up
When it comes to wedding dresses, 2020 sees beautiful statement details from intricate beading to tulle, lace overlays and personalised embroidery. Embrace your country venue with a boho style gown and encapsulate the romance of the setting with decadent embellishment. You might even have a poem or love note from your partner embroidered on to your veil.
Let them Eat Cake
With trends in cakes following those in fashion, prepare to see cakes with beautiful texture created from piped buttercream or icing, from crochet and macramé to lace designs and elegant embellishment. Sugar flowers and floral art remain popular, especially to highlight the beauty of seasonal blooms in the Norfolk countryside and that ‘hand-picked’ look.
Make Mindful Choices
Sustainability is key and the 2020 couple are keen to make their wedding as environmentally friendly as possible. Aim for a plastic free day and lean towards local produce when it comes to choosing your menu. Stick to seasonal flowers that will also echo the natural beauty surrounding Pentney Abbey. You might even choose to have living trees and plants as an alternative to floral arrangements – not only do they look fabulous, but they can be taken home or given as gifts to your guests.
Personalised, unique details remain popular and give you the opportunity to make your wedding ‘stand out’. Introduce bright colours, consider having live entertainment or games on the lawn, display photographs of your family and friends, surprise guests with handwritten notes and create personalised cocktails. The options are endless and our team are here to help you with every step of your planning.
