Leading wedding suppliers at the 2020 edition of Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park share the wedding trends couples can expect to see.
When it comes to planning a wedding, inspiration and ideas are the best way to establish how a couple imagines their special day. Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park which runs from February 1-2 (10am to 5pm) is the perfect place to get wedding planning underway, with a host of North West-based suppliers on hand to offer their expertise.
Don’t miss the stunning, choreographed catwalk show showcasing some amazing wedding fashions in bridalwear, menswear and occasion wear.
Sharing the trends for the year ahead, we speak to some of our exhibitors …
“Wedding dress designers have lifted necklines and lengthened sleeves for 2020. Offering a modern take on the prim and proper Victorian era, designers have created demure bridal looks that tick the box for those wanting a suitably traditional look to walk in down the aisle. Another trend for 2020 is one shoulder gowns to flatter the upper body and give off serious Grecian goddess vibes.” Amy Holmes, creative director at J&J Designs in Staffordshire, jandjdesignsbridal.com

“At Groom we have seen the trend of tweed grow year on year and it is still proving popular for 2020 and 2021 weddings. Tweeds are now available in many colours including greys, earthy browns and even reds. Penny collar shirts can help to complete the look along with a baker boy style flat cap.” Daniel Neilson, store manager for Groom Hire in Warrington, groomhire.co.uk
“Dehydration is the buzz word when it comes to wedding flower trends. We are seeing more dried grasses, pampas and flower heads coming to the fore in muted colour palettes. While large and lush greenery is still on trend, these are taking on much looser forms and are no longer interspersed with colourful floristry.” Mat Hepplestone, owner of Red Floral in Manchester, redfloral.co.uk
“Beautifully bold cakes will continue to be popular in 2020 with couples opting for darker tones such as midnight blue, forest green, charcoal and black on the body of the cake. These fabulous shades both make a striking statement and also act as a glorious backdrop to allow magnificent sugar flowers to really bloom. Flowers such as roses, peonies and fringed tulips are all popular, all displayed in looser and less structured arrangements with plenty of mixed foliage.” Nicola Thomas, owner of Boutique Bakery in Chester, boutiquebakery.co.uk
