It was a big year for celebrity engagements, and an equally ripe 365 days for stars who married. Yet, many A-listers are actively planning, securing vendors and getting through their checklists ahead of 2020 weddings, which will be one of the most defining years for nuptials across the board. While some stars like Emma Stone only recently got engaged, others are fully planning their nuptials just in time for wedding season.
Here, The Knot predicts who will marry in 2020, including Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez (among many others).
Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell
The two have already nailed down a venue, plus other details since their 2019 engagement. “It’s where we met, it’s where we got engaged, it only makes sense to have it at the Australia Zoo,” Powell told GMA of their wedding spot. The pair will have “lots and lots” of creatures around during the nuptials with the bride supposedly walking down the aisle hugging one.
“We may be setting some new trends for weddings from here on out,” Irwin added.
The conservationist will be wearing a gown from Kleinfeld. “I left my dress until the last minute but I’m really excited about it,” Irwin previously said. “It’s really special. I love it so much because it kind of mimics my mom’s beautiful dress so I found something that paid tribute to her beautiful wedding dress and I’m thrilled.”

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
The couple who got engaged in February 2019 will likely marry in 2020. The couple was actually supposed to wed during this holiday season, but they had to postpone the date due to location issues. “They’re beyond in love,” a source told Us Weekly. In fact, they’re planning to have a sequel wedding when the date arrives.
“They’re going have one local wedding party, and the other will be a destination wedding party,” the insider said.
Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma
The question is now when. After their May 2019 engagement, Duff and Koma’s wedding planning has remained top of mind for friends and fans of the couple. “We’re really excited and we’re torn between, ‘Are we just going to go to the chapel and do it?’ or ‘Are we going to have a little more thought put into it?'” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I think our families would kill us [if we eloped]. And we want the kids to be involved.”

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
What’s certain about this superstar wedding is that there will be much thoughtfulness around roles. “It’s always tricky when you merge families, but Jennifer and Alex did a great job from the start,” a source told People. “The kids are amazing together. And they have wanted Jennifer and Alex to get married for a long time. They will all definitely be a huge part of the wedding.” What’s also nice is this: The bride has already played the role of wedding planner.
In September, Rodriguez hinted that the wedding would be a destination event. “When you think about wedding plans and Jennifer is your partner, all you do is—you do a lot of nodding,” he added to ET. “I don’t know where the location is, I don’t know what I’m wearing, I don’t know when it is. I’ll just show up.”

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost
In September, the actress joked about needing all the help she could get for her nuptials to the SNL personality. One thing’s certain: this will be one royally funny wedding. “I don’t know!” she remarked to ET about the entire thing. “Can you help me?!”

J.J. Watt and Kealia Ohai
The athletic power couple already has the non-negotiable items for the wedding down. “It’s open bar for everybody,” the NFL player told Houston local station ABC13. “It’s the only way to make a good wedding.”
In June, he had yet to set a date, but he was at least aware of budget. “Being from Wisconsin, I didn’t even know there was another option to be honest,” Watt tweeted, before adding a photo of himself looking befuddled. He added, “(That picture will be my face when I see the final bill for the open bar).”

Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
Another power athlete, Tebow, and former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters are in the thick of wedding planning after their early 2019 engagement. In fact, both have taken to social media to share various aspects of the planning process (like practicing their dance moves and crowd sourcing hashtag ideas.

Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams
When it comes to weddings, this unlikely and adorable pairing already know the rundown, the vision and more. “Also, Sarah is going to be, like, Pinterest boards and vision boards and a lot of Elmer’s glue is going to be involved,” Bachelorette and subsequent Bachelor in Paradise star Adams said of the Modern Family actress. “So, I think we’re just holding off on that.”

Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark
The Vanderpump Rules personality has, at the very least, locked down a wedding date and more. “Wedding planning is a pain,” she said in November to Us Weekly. “No one warns you how hard it is and we have wedding planners! We’re having an overseas wedding, so I thought that would actually make it easier because we’re also having a smaller, intimate wedding but no, it doesn’t, it doesn’t make it easier. It’s very difficult but it’s really fun.”
