Consider this ample time at home as the perfect opportunity to plan your dream wedding. Settle in and sift through these ever-changing trends to create a day that is uniquely yours.
2020 Wedding Trends to Remember
Unsurprisingly, a focus on the planet was a predicted trend of 2020 weddings. This trend encompasses both the size and production of a wedding as well as the greenery and flowers. As one wedding planner explains, couples opted for more plants instead of cut flowers, as this lets florists send the plants back to the nurseries.
Specialty Liquor Bars
We see your open bar and raise you one. Specialty bars are an opportunity to play with your favorite liquor or wine by offering a variety of brands (or flavors). For example, a tequila bar could include the option of on the rocks, shots, or margaritas. All you need is your favorite drink, the proper glassware, and garnishes.
Calling on Color
Gone are the days of pastels and neutral colors. This 2020 trend refuses to let you play it safe with your color palette. Instead, it encourages the bright and creative, the prints and statements. Take your favorite hue and run with it—boldly.
2021 Wedding Trends to Look Forward to
Get ready for a year of contradictions and wedding cakes made out of cheese.
Relaxed and Informal…Yet Extravagant
The close-knit gathering has been on-trend for a few years now, and it keeps its place in the trends next year. “Micro-weddings” usually consist of around 40 people (or less), so couples can spend quality time with their nearest and dearest. This trend also lends itself to more extravagant weddings as couples spread their budget farther and wider on a smaller group. 2021 is the time for “oversized décor and giant statements,” with 40 of your closest friends.
The Wedding Dress
We don’t know why it took until 2021 for pockets in a wedding dress to be a “thing,” but pockets have finally made their way into the wedding trends forecast. The wedding dress is also getting a makeover in simplicity, which fits quite well into the vibe of 2020-2021 weddings being more informal and intimate. Sleeves are also making a comeback.
Forget the delicious wedding cake and head straight for the cheese table, says this wedding trend. Couples are nixing the cutting ceremony and allowing their guests to graze on tables filled with meats and cheeses, crackers and nuts…or doughnuts and cupcakes (it is your wedding day after all).
Up the Lighting
Pairing well with the sustainability trend of 2020, lights are being used in some creative ways as couples do more with less. As “unconventional” spaces are sought for ceremonies and after-parties (think breweries and barns), there’s been an increase in specialty lighting to establish the proper atmosphere and set the tone: LED signs with special phrases, hanging lanterns, or delicate string lights.
