They also picked “Black Tie + Barefoot” as the most prevalent flower trend for weddings and events. According to the report, this décor style features “moody colored flowers and soft feminine textures. The trend has a romantic feel and hints of a sophisticated Bohemian style. The look is created using muted and muddy color flowers combined with lacy and airy foliages, unexpectedly paired with dried flowers and tender vines. The color palette will be grayed tones of pink, lavender, blue and green, with a heather-ish pink being the most prevalent. Roses, peonies, dahlias and a host of flowing vines will be most popular for creating ‘Black Tie + Barefoot’ décor.”

Event planners often prepare for the worst, but one thing they likely didn’t anticipate was a global pandemic when selecting event cancellation insurance policies for their 2020 gatherings.

“It’s kind of like trying to buy homeowner’s insurance as your house is starting to catch fire... it’s too late,” says McKinney.
