From eco-friendly and ‘Instagrammable’ venues to embroidered dresses and the return of the rose, here are some of the top 2020 wedding trends from our budget hotel in Wembley.


Sustainable Weddings


With so much discussion around the subject, it should come as no surprise that eco-friendly ceremonies are trending in 2020. Following Princess Eugenie’s plastic-free wedding last year, sustainable weddings have become a key focus for couples. Many have replaced plastic favours and decorations with more sustainable materials, such as plastic-free confetti.

The Rose Makes A Comeback


Arguably the most ‘romantic’ flower in the world, the rose symbolises beauty, innocence and love. The classic rose was the ‘go-to’ flower for couples planning their big day, but in more recent years its popularity has declined. However, the rose is set to make a comeback this year, with brides incorporating the timeless flower into contemporary centrepieces, decorations and bouquets.

Instagram-worthy Venues


Yes, you heard us right, Instagrammable venues are on the up. With a rise in millennials on the hunt for picturesque buildings and grounds which provide a backdrop which would look perfect on the photo-sharing platform, Instagram. Again, celebrities are most likely responsible for this trend, for instance, Ellie Goulding got married at the stunning Castle Howard in York last year.

Embroidered Wedding Dresses


The dress is an important part of any wedding, especially to the bride who will spend hours searching for that one special gown to say ‘yes’ to. As brides look for ways to make their day more unique, embroidered dresses are on the up, inscribed with sayings or words, to sum up, their relationship. Hailey Baldwin had the statement ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ inscribed in her veil in 2019 – which kick-started the trend even further.

Wave Goodbye to the Veil


Are veils a thing of the past? It’s predicted that we’ll see many brides ditch the traditional veil this year, as they opt for alternative hairpieces – like decorative headbands and even hats! On the flip side, some wedding planners are predicting that brides will ‘go big’ this year, with dramatic cathedral-length veils. However, it seems we won’t be seeing many short veils in 2020.

Holiday Inn Wembley Reviews


Saint Johnsbury, Vermont

I was really impressed and even surprised how great this hotel was. It is located next to Wembley and it is 5-7 minutes to walk from the subway station Wembley Park. Rooms are very clean, the bed was simply fantastic. The breakfast is far above traditional breakfasts in midrange price British hotels. I will definitely stay there again when I am going to be in London.



We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were looking for decent hotel in London and although a wee bit outside the center of London, the rail/tube links to Wembley makes this hotel easily accessible to central London (30 min train journey). We booked executive room (£134) which was large, with great view of Wembley stadium. Service from staff was very good with food and drink reasonable for London.



The welcome was friendly and helpful. Room on 3rd floor very clean and fresh. Twin beds as requested. Very comfortable. The temperature of room was constant with no stuffy feel.

Great choice for breakfast. This is hotel is good value for money considering location.


Miami Beach, Florida

This hotel was absolutely great. The food and everything far exceeded my expectations. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff were extraordinarily professional and provided excellent service. They were very accommodating and made my stay a very pleasant and rewarding one.



Handy for train station and bus routes, and it had all amenities that you could reasonably require. The room itself was good and I slept well that night. I would gladly stay again.


Tees Valley

Good value stopover with the city easily reached by the Metropolitan Line. Team here are always welcoming. Comfortable and clean room on the 9th floor and the air con much appreciated on a scorcher of a day outside.



Wonderful hotel room, very good price, staff were lovely and friendly. Saying how busy it was after the summertime ball the staff were friendly and on hand to help. Would recommend to anyone who wants a place to stay visiting Wembley stadium.



Stayed here for the game at the stadium which is right next to hotel. Beds comfy staff are friendly the breakfast is buffet all you can eat. Diana on reception was really polite and helpful. Would stay here again.



The friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and a VERY comfortable bed makes this hotel an excellent choice every time, especially when you intend attending events at Wembley or shopping in the designer outlets.



First would like to say how helpful and friendly Mario at the Reception desk was made checking in easy and welcoming. The room we were allocated was excellent wanted to take the bed home with me. Cleanliness was excellent and had everything you need for a one night stay.
