The Biggest Fall Wedding Trend of 2020

Wedding trends are constantly changing and evolving. Having your wedding be on-trend and impressive to your guests is a priority to many couples. It is the most special day of your life, so you want it to be the best. That is why the following trends and taking inspiration is so important. This fall, the biggest wedding theme is uncertainty. 

So many people have fall weddings planned and those couples probably assumed that the pandemic would be gone by the time fall came around since it began in March. We’re now in August and the pandemic is still alive and well, which leaves a lot of couples uncertain about their wedding. Do they plan to have 100 guests? Will their guests be required to wear masks? Can they still use their venue? 

“Minimonys” have been very popular this summer as a result of the pandemic. These are ceremonies with up to 10 or 15 attendees, followed by a more massive reception when things are safer and healthier. This is an excellent solution to the trend of uncertainty. At Whitestone Inn, we have become experts at “minimonys.” A fall wedding with the closest people in your life in the gorgeous Smoky Mountains is a great way to have a magnificent wedding and stay safe while doing so. A beautiful intimate ceremony is ideal for the fall and is currently a leading trend in the wedding industry.

With a small ceremony comes a big reception in this fall trend. Of course, the reception won’t take place in the fall, not the fall of 2020 at least. You can begin prepping and preparing for a later date when you won’t have to worry about capacity, or putting friends and family in an unhealthy or uncomfortable situation. By the time you have your reception, inevitably, there will be brand new trends to follow, but that is something to worry about later on. 

The most important thing is to tie the knot with your loved ones, while staying safe and having a wonderful time. That can be done at Whitestone Inn, where we offer wedding packages for small groups.
