2021 Wedding Trends
to Try for Your Big Day
This year, we are saying goodbye to the uncertainties of 2020 and are excited to embrace 2021. A new year means new engagements, a new season, and new wedding trends! Are you planning your 2021 wedding and looking for something to make it more special? From vibrant colors, to big and bold decorative statements, we’re sure you’ll find something to incorporate into your upcoming wedding. Read through to know what’s in and what’s new.
With many weddings postponed in 2020 for 2021 or even 2022, going for a weekday wedding is one of the top trends this year as most venues and vendors have a slim availability. One of the major perks of a weekday wedding is saving big money because of the significant drop in wedding venue rentals on a weekday as opposed to a Saturday wedding. That means your dream venue that was originally out of your budget may be within arms reach now. Want to save more? Opt for a brunch time wedding and smaller menu!
Elaborate Table Top
As we are seeing a rise in micro weddings or intimate weddings with a downsized guest list, couples are giving much thought and spending extra time on creating the perfect table-scape for their guests! From fresh nature inspired hues to over-the top linen colors, it’s a great time to get creative while setting the table. Embrace bold colors and think of vibrant florals, fuschia or lavender table linens, accented with geometric table decor and elegant glass charger plates. The best part is that mismatched is in, so you don’t have to worry about everything matching and looking stiff.
Set the Mood
Whether you choose an indoor or outdoor wedding, setting the mood is an important thing to consider when you plan a wedding. While there are a lot of elements to use in achieving a coordinated tone and theme like flowers, linen colors, or even your wedding playlist, lighting plays a vital role in setting the mood of a wedding event. Create the perfect outdoor setting with garden lights or decorate poles and tree trunks with fairy lights garlands. Bring the outdoors in with green leaves fairy lights running across your table for a magnificent table runner accent. And finally, wow your guests with LED lights organza curtain backdrop.
Big Beautiful Florals
The ceremony is the most important part of the big day. It is when the couple exchanges vows, put on rings, and share their first kiss as a married couple. As one of the focal points during the ceremony, having a beautiful and picture-perfect wedding backdrop is significant for such an important occasion. Many are creating a floral backdrop or arch for announcement or elopement ceremony photos. Backdrop arches with big, bold, and beautiful floral installations are a must this year. While geometric arches are still in, you could still go for the classic arch shape and square stands.
Saying Thank You
Functional wedding favors like protective face masks and hand sanitizers are popular with 2021 brides and grooms. Make the masks unique with custom designs like embroidered initials or wedding monogram to remember the event for. Couples are also giving out edible favors like jams, local honey, or a box of cookies. With the COVID-19 risk, instead of having these favors placed on a table where guests can easily pick theirs up, offer them in individual boxes with personalized notes to say thank you.
