5 Wedding Trends in 2021 You Need to Know

We have all heard the countless stories of brides and grooms who had to push their wedding day back or who decided to elope during 2020 due to the pandemic. This was a devastating time for the wedding industry, but with it came a lot of new trends that we believe are here to stay.

Here are five wedding trends that you need to know!

1. Elopements

With guest restrictions and the uncertainty of the future, many brides and grooms are choosing to elope! This trend is in full force with a focus on having a more intimate and meaningful celebration with their loved ones. This is also a great choice if you are looking for whimsical destination pictures, fewer details to coordinate, or if you are on a tight budget.

2. E-Invites

Digital invitations are becoming more popular! Whether save the dates or wedding invitations, they are easy to make, less expressive than paper invitations, and they are more eco-friendly. Who needs postage when you can send it straight to someone's phone?

3. Married Now Party Later

Event constrictions this past year have forced brides and grooms to get creative about how to celebrate with all their favorite people. Many couples are choosing to get married now and have a party later. This new trend is helping brides and grooms save money, take the pressure off their wedding day, and create anticipation for a future, lavish party.

4. Live-Streaming

It can be heartbreaking to hear that a close family member or friend can not make it to the wedding. Normalizing live-streaming your wedding has changed the whole game! Not only do those you love to watch you get married but you can save the footage for you to watch throughout the years.

5. Miniature Wedding Cakes

For safety reasons, many weddings are now serving individualized wedding cakes. This is a great way to streamline the process of serving the cake and can add a variety of flavors that everyone will love. Who doesn't love having a cake all to themselves?

These new trends are taking the wedding industry by storm. If we have learned anything from this year is to use our creativity and to do it your way! Everyone has unique situations that may complicate your wedding day so use these trends to inspire you to create your special day as one-of-a-kind as your love! If you have any questions about trends, do's and don'ts, or how you can make your wedding day fit you and your fiancé's style, reach out to us today! We would love take you out to coffee and talk about your vision so we can help you bring it to life!

Let's call it a double date!
