2020 Wedding Trends with The Empty Box Company

2020 is here, and the wedding trend reports are in full swing. As we operate within the wedding industry, we like to spend some time at the beginning of every year looking at the upcoming wedding trends. And – of course – seeing how our boxes fit in!

2020 Sustainable Weddings 

Sustainable weddings were a big thing last year, and they’re even bigger this year. We are thrilled to hear this!

If you’re familiar with our company ethos, you’ll know that we pride ourselves on being as eco-friendly & sustainable as possible. From sourcing our materials from within the UK, to using solar panels on our workshop barn, and having a strict recycling policy, we like to go above & beyond to protect our planet – even within the business world!

So, if sustainability is important to you, make sure you’re spending your money in the right places for your wedding this year!

Previously seen as traditional and maybe even a little stuffy – not this year. Roses are back (in full bloom…) for 2020 weddings, but with a twist. Florists are becoming evermore creative and moving away from traditional tight bouquets and ordinary centrepieces. 

Are you having roses at your wedding? Our ‘English Rose’ design is perfect for the modern bride who enjoys her florals. 

Wedding Dresses

Ah, our favourite part of wedding planning – the dress! The trends for 2020 are two very opposing styles; simple & elegant dresses, in fabrics such as Mikado & Crepe. And to contrast, embroidered dresses (moving away from traditional lace or glitzy sparkle).

Whether you’re following the wedding dress trends this year, or going for something completely different… You’re going to need a beautiful box to protect, preserve, and store your dress in. After all, it’s the most important dress you’ll ever wear!

Trend Conclusions

Whilst there are many 2020 wedding trends we haven’t covered, the overall census is that weddings in 2020 are going to be different to any other year we’ve had so far. Couples are breaking away from the norm and wanting to ‘wow’ and impress their guests, without copying what someone else has already done.

If you’re getting married in 2020, we would love to hear from you! Tell us about your wedding and how many of the trends you are following! And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram

I have recently received my order from you, and would just like to thank you all so much for my wedding dress box. It was a surprise to see such a wonderful designed box, which had a lot of storage space. I have searched high and low for a large box and have only been successful with yourself.
Very rarely in this busy world we lead do I feel strongly enough to put “pen to paper” however having taken delivery of my wedding dress travel box this morning I feel compelled to write to you! I must admit that initially, I hesitated about placing an order for what seemed effectively like just an empty box. Well, I stand corrected! The box is absolutely stunning and of amazing quality – I simply had to express my thanks for supplying such a beautiful product. Rest assured it will be displayed with pride on top of my wardrobe.
Wow! What a beautiful box for my wedding dress. It was so sad to pack my dress away, but your box was just perfect. My Mum thought I was ordering just an ordinary plain box! No way! Thank you so much.
I just wanted to send a big thank you for my lovely wedding dress box, which I received last week. I am very impressed by the attention to detail – from the quality beautiful box itself, to the way in which it was packed to ensure it arrived in pristine condition. All for a very reasonable price! My dress fits perfectly inside and the box has pride of place in my wardrobe.
Just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with my Wedding Dress Box, my dress fits perfectly and the design (essence gold) is exactly in keeping with my wedding colour scheme. The dress box is so good, I’ve just ordered a tiara box to match!
