Many wedding plans were canceled or pushed back because of last year’s pandemic. These sudden turn of events have affected the wedding industry in more ways than we can imagine.
While some of us might still be pushing for traditional wedding practices, there are a few great wedding trends that have been born out of adjusting to the ‘new normal’ lifestyle.
Here are some of the best 2021 wedding trends to watch out for:
As large gatherings become a thing of the past, micro weddings or intimate weddings will become more common this 2021. Less is more this year as we prioritize safety and follow health protocols. Weddings are expected to have fewer guests (around 10-50) and be more private and intimate. Some of us might even consider holding multiple celebrations to accommodate our different set of social groups.
Aside from micro weddings, similar concepts are minimally and elopement weddings for more adventurous souls.
Outdoor or alfresco venues will be more common as covid-19 is known to spread faster in closed and air conditioned venues. Add in the fact that people are eager to go out and travel, expect more private beach weddings, garden weddings, and mountain weddings this year.
Sustainability is everything this 2021. As we become more and more aware of climate change, many people are choosing to reduce their wedding’s environmental impact.
There are many ways to lessen your wedding’s waste. From brides who are opting for sustainable dresses and makeup to choosing local and organic for your wedding’s food and picking eco-friendly wedding decors and favours. Many couples are committing to a zero-waste wedding.
Live Streaming your Wedding
Due to lockdown restrictions and safety protocols, we know that not all our guests will be able to attend our weddings as much as they want to. Live streaming is a great way to share this moment in our lives with them without compromising their safety.
White is out and color is in. Expect fresh and modern color palettes to take over weddings this year. Think of bright, bold, and darlings pops of colors and hues that will make our wedding decors look more exciting. Make a statement with brilliant and unconventional color themes.
This is a much-needed change especially since we’ve been stuck in our homes for months, aren’t we tired of seeing neutrals and plain colors all the time?
We know you all love greenery, and we are expecting to see more of it this 2021. Adorn your tables with foliage and fill your wedding arches with massive leaves and luscious greenery to add a level of elegance and sophistication. Choose a type of greenery that you think will suit your personality such as ferns, eucalyptus, or even succulents.
Whether you decide to hold an indoor or outdoor wedding, greenery will surely help you have a more beautiful and stylish wedding.
These wedding trends are different from the usual, but that’s what makes them more exciting. It’s been a tough year, and we are being forced to think out of the box and go for wedding ideas that we usually would not have thought of before.
In the end, it is still up to you to decide what kind of wedding you would like to happen. Don’t be afraid to do it your way and plan the wedding of your dreams.
