2021 wedding trends you need to know!

Starting to plan your dream wedding? Some couples have a clear idea of their perfect wedding and what the day(s) will look like while others are overwhelmed by the myriad of options – location, food, décor – oh my!

With so many choices to consider we have tried to make the process a little easier by pulling together the latest wedding trends to help you with ideas and plans. In light of the chaos of 2020, simplicity seems to be the theme of the year. Settle in with your sweetheart, have a read through this list and start envisioning what your day of love will look like.  Here are the top ten new wedding trends for 2021 as predicted by some of the top media.


1) Micro Weddings

“This year, we are seeing a rise in the micro wedding, aka an intimate wedding with fewer than 50 guests. There are many plus-sides to this new trend, from a focus on who is in attendance to the overall vibe of the event, which can lend itself to being more personal and emotional—especially during such an uncertain time.” Brides

 

2) ‘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.” Wed Inspire

 

3) The Décor

“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.” Wed Inspire

 

 


4) Going Sustainable - Eco Weddings

“In these eco-conscious times we live in, now more than ever, couples are looking at ways to host responsibly. This means cutting back on unnecessary waste and trying to be as eco-friendly as possible. Wedding venues are being greener and becoming more sustainable, many venues that provide in-house catering will use locally sourced produce, as well as other areas within their business to be more eco-friendly.” Wed Inspire


For more ways to host a sustainable, zero-waste, ethical wedding take a look at 77 Diamonds guide to sustainable weddings.

 

5) Fresh Air

“Smores under the stars, the sea breeze filtering through the first course, as well as on-site concierges to help with exploration activities are just a few benefits to choosing an outdoor wedding weekend. Take advantage of the smaller guest list and consider scenic and beautiful locations that were out of the question for 100 guests, but are now perfect for your party of 10." The Knot


6) Elopements

“We're starting to see many couples plan small affairs or elopements at the onset, rather than dealing with the potential headache and expense of downsizing due to COVID-19 later." The Insider


7) Beach Weddings

“2021 will have loads more beach weddings than we've seen in the past… featuring an easygoing ceremony on the shore followed by a more over-the-top dinner on dry land. Others might feel that much more casual and end with smores around a fire pit. Whatever your style, expect beach weddings in 2021 to honor their natural setting, with a twist.” Harpers Bazaar 

 

8) Focus on the Food

"Smaller guest counts can translate into dining upgrades, they are also interested in treating their guests to beautifully curated menus, multi-course dinners and wine pairings, opting to spend more to give their closest friends and family a memorable and enjoyable meal.” Bridal Guide

9) Celebrations Will Go On For A Week

“More and more 2021 couples want to take over the venue for multiple nights to
extend their wedding celebrations and continue the party.”


“They are almost merging their wedding with a staycation and coordinating a week’s
worth of group activities on site… all of which are Covid friendly and perfect for mixed
generations.” Tatler

10) Focus on Nature

Bawah-reserve-1

“The same applies to the choice of location, immersed in nature, and the use of simple and eco-sustainable materials, such as recycled paper for the stationery, wood and jute for the setting.” Martina Events
