Weddings are very personal and there is no wedding that fits all, while the latest wedding trends change, so do tastes, and what people wish to spend their money on when it comes to their big day.
RELAXED AND INFORMAL
Top of the wedding trend list is informal gatherings. Inviting all to your big day is no longer the trend, ok some small detail such as a world pandemic may have something to do with this, but couples are opting for a more intimate, meaningful celebration with their nearest and dearest. Allowing them to spend their budget more lavishly on a smaller group.
One of the big wedding trends of the season is for more intimate ceremonies. Also known as ‘micro weddings’ these occasions tend to have a smaller guest list of up to 25 guests. They can be formal or informal, and keep with tradition, or take a more modern approach – however, they tend to be a fusion of both.
Also, since there is more budget per head, they lend themselves perfectly to bespoke soirees, which are remembered for personal touches throughout. This can range from private wine tasting to personalized favors as part of the big day celebrations.
Most importantly, they also allow the bride and groom to spend quality time with each and every guest – just one of the reasons for its surging popularity.
‘I DO’ RIGHT NOW!
The brand new wedding trend of 2021 has to be ‘wed now party later’. Fueled by event restrictions this modern concept will have couples saying their vows to become husband and wife pretty soon then holding a date in the future to party away with larger groups of family and friends.
Controversial maybe but after all, becoming Mr & Mrs right now with impressive lavish celebrations to look forward to in the future is certainly spine-tinglingly exciting!
A trend consistently growing has to be extended wedding celebrations, I mean let’s be honest who wants to enjoy their wedding across a day when they could opt for a long weekend or even a week!
Small gatherings set over longer periods are increasingly becoming the go-to for many couples and we certainly don’t see this slowing down into 2021 and beyond. With intimate weddings on the increase couples will look for extra ways to impress and spoil their smaller guest list and what better way than celebrating for longer.
One of the clear wedding trends for 2021 is the inclusion of luscious greenery. Tables dressed with cascades of foliage or ceremony arches displaying masses of leaves and greenery on show are the go to for sophisticated wedding adornment. Think ferns, succulents, garlands of eucalyptus. The best thing about this natural decor trend is that it can be incorporated into almost any style of wedding, rustic farmhouse certainly, modern industrial most definitely, destination outdoor terrace of course!
