As we head into the new year, changes to celebrations caused by COVID-19 are not going anywhere. However, there are several beautiful and social-distanced wedding trends to look forward to in 2021.
Outdoor Ceremonies and Receptions
2021 ceremonies and receptions will be held outside more ever before. You can treat this as an opportunity to do something different and allow your true personality to shine while engaging in your favorite things. If you enjoy nature and being outside, this is the perfect opportunity to incorporate it.
Micro Weddings and Elopements
You will most likely have to scale back on the number of guests you invite or create an intimate elopement style wedding. This allows for a bigger focus on the details and unforgettable experiences. With a smaller wedding comes a smaller budget. The budget will be easier to allocate, making it easier to plan your dream wedding and see it come to life in ways that you never thought were possible.
Bigger, Bolder, Yet Relaxed
You should consider spending a portion of the money you save by accommodating fewer wedding guests on bigger and bolder decor. Fresh and natural colors like pastels, peaches, and powder blues as well as nature-inspired hues and other calming color palettes are expected to be all the rage in 2021. These colors will create a more tranquil, relaxed atmosphere for your loved ones.
Lighting has the effect to change the ambiance of your venue. This is not always easy to do with traditional decor such as florals. Dramatic lighting including specialty chandeliers, custom lighting fixtures, wrap-around twinkly light installations, outdoor fireplaces, and lots of candles lining just about every inch of your venue is going to give you that cozy, warm, and inviting feel that will truly make a huge impact.
From dress shopping to virtual venue tours and digital invites, the internet will continue to be your saving grace. Video-chat services like Zoom and Facebook also allow you to broadcast your ceremony live to virtual attendees. There are also “watch-party kits” to send to remote guests.
Weekday and Brunch Weddings
Weekday weddings have been on the rise. Venues charge less for off-peak days. This means your dream venue may be attainable for some other time during the week.
Extra Personal Touches
You should express gratitude to your guests for being able to join in on your special day. With a smaller setting, you can focus on keeping your guests safe and comfortable while having fun as well. Custom masks, mini sanitizer bottles, hydration stations, and fun social distancing layouts are ways to add those little touches.
