Everyone wants their big day to be unique, and one way to do that is to throw a wedding celebration of Hollywood proportions. The glitz and glam of the celebrity stratosphere can help give you the inspiration that you need to take your special day to the next level.
From the traditional to the over-the-top that you can only expect from our most daring famous faces, celebrities really know how to throw a wedding. Here are the top 8 celebrity styles, trends, and unique ideas that can make your 2020 wedding fabulous, even on a budget:
1. Throw a Classic Royalty-Style Brunch Like Kate and William
You don’t have to be part of the royal family to throw a regal wedding. While the stunning Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William did three grand receptions, we love the idea of their having a royal brunch reception first. After all, who wouldn’t love to dine at a classy brunch to celebrate love?
2. Have a Movie-Inspired Wedding like Hailey and Justin Bieber
According to several sources, including reality TV icon Kris Jenner, Hailey and Justin Beiber themed their wedding after the iconic romantic film The Notebook. Apparently, they gave copies of the novel to every wedding guest and even screened the movie for family and friends following their rehearsal dinner! Can you think of anything more adorable?
3. Wear a Stunning Cutout Dress Like Kim Kardashian
Speaking of Kardashians, so famous that you don’t even need to add their surnames, Kim and Kanye threw a wedding with unique details that no one could stop talking about—especially Kim’s Givenchy dress.
Kim flaunted a subtly sexy cutout dress that was still stunning and classy, a trend that has become popular despite the tradition to keep it covered, especially at religious ceremonies. Feel free to change it up for your wedding day and break a few traditions to wear the dress of your dreams and tie some Kim-spiration into your big day.
4. Incorporate Your Fur Babies Like Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
Famous for having two weddings—a wild Las Vegas celebration followed by a more formal affair outside a chateau—Sophie and Joe had one unique twist that made their wedding even more adorable than if it were just the two of them. They brought along their pup to serve as a groomsman!
Let’s face it—who wouldn’t want their furry best friend at their wedding? And now that you know that even the hottest celebrities are making sure their pups are in the spotlight on their wedding day, you have every excuse to bring your own fur babies.
5. Serve Custom Treats like Sofia Vergara
You can’t forget the sweets and desserts once everyone has enjoyed the exceptional dining experience of your wedding day, so consider borrowing a page from Sofia Vergara’s wedding book. The Modern Family star treated her guests to a 5-tier wedding cake as well as a custom sundae bar that more than satisfied each guest’s sweet tooth.
6. Prioritize Candid Photos like Lauren Conrad
If you’re over the unnaturally-posed photos that too many weddings fall victim to, consider how Lauren Conrad hired a photographer who specialized in candid shots to make sure she got the best photos possible. The result was something more intimate and natural than traditional photographs and made the whole event seem much more real.
7. Board a Wedding Boat Cruise like George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
What kind of wedding would you expect when tying the knot in Venice? The couple began their marriage classically and romantically by climbing aboard a boat appropriately named “amore” to celebrate their love at sea. Inviting a smaller group of friends and family to participate in your nautical celebration is a great way to draw inspiration from Mr. Clooney and his wife while still making your wedding uniquely your own.
8. Do an All-Out Fireworks Show like David and Victoria Beckham
A wedding that was arguably more royal than any of the royal weddings, the marriage of Victoria Adams (Posh Spice) and David Beckham took place in Ireland, and demonstrated everything we loved about the 90s as the decade and millennium drew to a close. They ended the night with a bang—literally—and had a spectacular fireworks show to really take their celebration to a new level.
Everyone’s wedding is special in its own way, but if you’re hoping to make yours the most talked-about event of 2020, then a little celebrity inspiration could do the trick. As you search for the perfect wedding venue, dress, decor, and photographer to make your Hollywood wedding dreams come true, you’re sure to wow your guests and keep them talking about your big day.
