Each year brings with it new fashion designs, new wedding trends, and exciting new ways to give your celebration unique elements that will be memorable for all. 

In recent years, we've watched "boho chic" became one of the top wedding styles, churro stations and donut bars rise to be a must-have for spoiling your guests with a mountain of desserts! And although some of these trends will continue, the year 2020 will bring exciting new ideas and creative inspiration from wedding dresses and men's style to decorating with geometric patterns and neon lights as well as delivering a culinary festival worth sharing at the reception.

Mexican Crafts for Wedding Décor

Mexico has a wealth of artisan crafts and the new year will see these quaint Mexican crafts woven into the fabric of wedding themes and decoration.

Alebrijes (brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures), jute mats and colorful confetti will breathe life and culture into your celebration.

Elemental Geometry

It's predicted that adding geometric shapes and designs will be on trend for years to come. Decorate with triangles, rhombuses, pentagons, squares and rectangles in table centerpieces, on the bride and groom's head table and even as hanging décor.
As for the colors, we prefer metallic tones, particularly the stunning rose gold that has been rising in popularity year after year, and will be a fashionable addition to your beach wedding. 


Details in Neon Lights

A complement to geometric designs will be neon lights — primarily in the form of retro neon signs and inspiring phrases placed throughout key areas. Place them at the bride and groom's table during the reception dinner, on the candy table, or hang them on a greenery wall for lively reception photography, and more! Get creative and unique! 


Reception Dinner, Family-style!

Mexican weddings are all about sharing with family and loved ones, and what better way to show love than by sharing food.
The new year will bring with it an abundance of food for the wedding reception, delivered family-style for a Mexican touch. Swivel trays with delectable hors d'oeuvres, cheese, grapes and even traditional Mexican sweets will not only delight the palate but also serve as colorful centerpieces.

3D Wedding Dresses & Men's Styles

In 2020, we'll see high-end wedding dresses with 3D applications and designs that stand out. Velvety 3D flowers, sequins, and silk butterflies that look as if they could sweep up your train and follow you down the aisle. No matter the style of dress, form-fitting, airy Bohemian a-line, or even a sweetheart neckline, these unique applications will give your dress a fresh, classy style. 
As for the men's style, leave behind the classic black to try a more striking color such as olive green, blue or even bold shades of purple.


The Day of the Dead

Of course, we can't talk about Mexican wedding trends without mentioning the "Day of the Dead", celebrated in Mexico at the end of October. If this Mexican holiday is an inspiration for your wedding, discover our favorite wedding cake decor and reception ideas. Although the tradition is age-old, each year brings new ideas you can incorporate into your wedding.
