Looking to make your 2021 wedding special? Even though you may be downsizing your celebration, you can still make the day uniquely your own by incorporating ideas from our list of 2021 trends!
In fashion, even before COVID-19 hit, microweddings have become the top trend of the wedding season. A microwedding trims the guest list to 50 people or less, allowing you to cut costs or allot a higher budget per guest, whichever direction you choose to go.
A smaller gathering also allows you to plan for social distancing without sacrificing the dance floor!
Sustainable weddings are in vogue, and we are excited about this trend! Embrace any of the myriad ways of reducing your carbon footprint from resetting a family stone to repurposing floral arrangements from the ceremony for the reception to using only locally grown foods.
Consider an inclusive menu with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Offer alcohol-free cocktails in addition to your open bar.
Veils will always be in style for weddings but consider your other options. Tiaras had their day, and now barrettes are the hair jewelry of choice. Look for hair accessories in rhinestones, pearls, or to match the rest of your jewelry.
Color On Trend
Pantone’s color of the year is classic blue — picture the sky at dusk. Work this gorgeous blue naturally into your wedding with flower arrangements including hyacinths, cornflowers, delphiniums, asters, hydrangeas, blue daisies, and more. Ask your florist for assistance.
You can always spray paint or dip dye greens and petals to add more blue to your hue!
Consider a change from sweet to savory! After the cake is cut, rather than a table of desserts for munching, provide a table of cheese, cuts of meats, crackers, and nuts.
Instead of handing out wedding favors, take the money you’ve budgeted and donate it to a charity of your choice.
Some couples are also requesting that donations be made to a charity close to the couple’s heart in lieu of wedding gifts.
Make Your Wedding Uniquely Yours
Whether you choose one or more 2021 trends to add something special to your wedding day, make sure the day reflects who you are as you look to your future together.
