Unique Weddings in 2020

Traditional weddings are beautiful and always an honorable choice. However, as millenials and younger generations start getting married, creative and unique wedding ideas are taking over. In fact, it seems the wedding trend for 2020 is to be as unique as possible. Whether you are choosing an unconventional color palette, bohemian decor, a winter wedding, or a highly stylized food and drink pairing menu, Celine & Company Catering in Asheville is on board with the changes!  The following is a small compilation of our favorite unique wedding ideas emerging for 2020. 

Magic and Mystical Themed Weddings

Mysticism is alluring and has a special—well, you know—mystique. For your wedding in Asheville (where you cannot throw a sage bundle without hitting a self-proclaimed mystic), we highly recommend a magical theme for a wedding. Asheville will provide everything you need, including rose quartz, palo santo, sage bundles, tarot cards—heck, hire a tarot card reader or aura photobooth for your wedding! You’ll find it here. Additionally, the surrounding vista is perfect for a magical wedding. The Smoky Mountains west of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains that surround our town are known for their misty, spiritual presence … especially in winter!

Winter Weddings 

Winter in Asheville is mild. Of course, we get some 20 degree days but, for the most part, the weather is on the chilly side of pleasant. More applicably for wedding trends is the color palette in winter. Picture a backdrop of rolling blue hills in mist preceded by rich brown and rust-colored forests. The palette of a winter wedding scene is not only unique, it is picturesque. Furthermore, since winter weddings are held indoors, creative liberties can be taken that would be otherwise impossible for outdoors. Imagine the decor of your winter wedding dripping in elegant, luxurious candlelight, roses, holly, fur shawls, and fairy lights over the dance floor. Alternatively, the mystical vibe described above could also pair very well with a wedding date in winter. Winter weddings are trending because the ambiance is cozy with more attention given to the details such as decor, food, and drinks. 

Unique Wedding Menus and Cocktail Hour Appetizers

As caterers in the wedding industry, Celine & Company has become increasingly aware of the need for alternative menu items to accommodate various diets. Couples getting married in 2020 are going for a menu that has vegan and vegetarian options, as well as keto and gluten free. Brides and grooms are even putting special attention towards the cocktail hour. Some couples are creating pairing stations set up for guests to sample an appetizer with a perfectly paired drink. 

Regardless of your ideas for the perfect wedding day in Asheville, Celine & Company can accommodate. Our downtown event space “On Broadway” is an eye-catching room in a historic building. Its vintage-urban decor, wood floors, and chandelier lighting are the perfect backdrop for a wide variety of creative liberties. In winter, the floor-to-ceiling windows that face Biltmore Ave fog up beautifully to create a truly romantic vibe that can be mystical, elegant, formal, or … all three! Celine & Company’s “On Broadway” event space is the venue to make your wedding day dreams a reality.

Urban Winter Wedding Trends Are In! 

At Celine & Company, we never wish summer away. But if cold days always looked like a winter wedding in Asheville, we might reconsider. Sometimes the winter wedding color palette is traditional. Other times it is urban or creative. Regardless of the colors you choose, Celine & Company’s “On Broadway” is the perfect vintage-urban venue to host a moody winter wedding in downtown Asheville. 

Cut Costs and the Hassle With a Winter Wedding in Asheville

Urban winter wedding trends are in because they are hip, beautiful, and more convenient than you would think. One of the best parts about indoor winter weddings in Asheville is that you do not need to travel far to get from hotel-to-ceremony-to-venue and back to hotel for the afterparty. In fact, Celine & Company’s “On Broadway” is in the heart of downtown and has multiple hotels within walking distance. 

Our downtown venue is short walk (maximum: 500 ft.) from the AC Hotel, The Windsor Hotel, and the Renaissance. Imagine not having to bus your entire wedding reception to the hotel because it’s a stone’s throw away. Imagine not having to pack up your bridal sweet—panty hose, cell phones, half-drank champagne flutes, lipsticks, bathrobes, blow dryers, et al—after three glasses of wine and two hours of dancing in stilettos. Why not? Because you are a genius and reserved the hotel’s luxury sweet for the entire weekend. 

Winter Wedding Photos Will Take Your Breath Away

Picture this: the bride in a long sleeve lace and chiffon wedding dress, holding a bouquet of holly, pine cones, and white roses. Behind her, a beautiful entourage of bridesmaids donning fur shawls and strutting down Asheville city streets. How glamorous would those shots be?!  

The urban backdrop to a winter wedding scene is not only unique, it is picturesque. Asheville is a notably beautiful town. With its architecture an eclectic mix of Romanesque Revival and Gothic Renaissance, Asheville city streets are a beautiful urban backdrops. Plus, the gentle wintertime of Southern Appalachia offers significantly less destructive weather than in summertime (that is, compare fluffy snowflakes to rain, mud, and lightning). Once indoors, the photographs change from furs and an urban setting to candlelight, roses, and dancing. 

Candles, Chandeliers, and Regulated Heat—Cozy Indoor Receptions 

It is no secret in the wedding industry that planning an indoor reception is infinitely easier than outdoor. Moreover, creative liberties can be taken that would be otherwise impossible for outdoors. Dripping candlesticks, low lighting, and cushiony couch seats complete a very cozy, very romantic wedding night. Add roses and holly with accents of mint green, rich brown, and deep red against our vintage urban venue. Watch jaws drop as your rosy cheeked guests arrive. With dry leaves blowing in the door and icicles forming on our floor-to-ceiling windows, winter weddings get everyone feeling all sorts of warm and fuzzy inside. Located in the heart of the historic district of downtown Asheville, schedule a visit to see our beautiful brick-walled and wood floor venue space. With our low hanging chandeliers and custom vintage decor, a winter wedding at Celine & Company makes for a picture perfect night.
