Etsy is a treasure trove for couples seeking unique, one-of-a-kind wedding details. And because Etsy is a shopping website, it provides valuable insight into what styles and trends we’ll be seeing at weddings this year. Here, Etsy’s Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson shares what’s emerging for 2020 weddings.
From disco décor to retro-inspired colors to natural headpieces, the 1970s are a leading influence in weddings this year. Etsy has seen a 18% increase in ’70s invitations and a 18% increase in disco ball items in the last six months.

Non-Traditional Wedding Parties
2020’s wedding parties are more inclusive than ever. Instead of limiting the party bridesmaids and groomsmen, we’re seeing an increase in the “bridesman” (searches increased 171%) and “best woman” (searches increased 72%). Pets are continuing to share center stage as “dog of honor,” and the “junior bridesmaid” role (for special young ladies who feel too old to be flower girls) is on the rise.
Wedding pantsuits rocked the runway this season, and Etsy is seeing a 24% increase in searches for bridal jackets and a 4% increase in searches for women’s pantsuits. This alternative style isn’t just for the wedding day — consider it for your rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or bridal shower.
Let’s face it — a wedding can generate a lot of waste. Couple are taking strides to reduce the amount of one-day-only items by opting for vintage veils, repurposed cufflinks, and rings made from recycled metals. Searches for reused, recycled, and reclaimed wedding items are up 7%.

In tune with the sustainability trend, vintage and heirloom-quality rings are on the rise. Etsy has seen a 20% increase in vintage wedding rings.
Couples are ditching the trinkets and opting for a favor that promotes relaxation and self-care, like crystals (up 11%), soaps (up 9%), and candles (up 5%).
