We can all agree that wedding trends for the year 2021 are going to be influenced and shaped by the Coronavirus lockdown of 2020. This period of time we have been stuck in our homes, and not able to hug our loved ones will have a profound effect on how we choose to celebrate their marriage union in the year 2020.
Here are some of the wedding trends that are going to shape these happy celebrations in the upcoming year.
Micro Weddings and Elopements
In the year 2021, we are going to see many couples narrowing down their guest lists; the focus will definitely be on the ones nearest and dearest to our hearts. Many couples are going to need to scale back on their numbers of guests they will be inviting, which will much more genuine moments shared with the truly loved ones. Budgets will become easier to allocate, making your dream wedding come to fruition in ways that you never thought were possible.
Self-Service Bars Will Be a Hit
When we say self-service bars, we are not talking about coolers and chilled wine racks, but more like beer tap and wall-mounted champagne dispensers. Do-it-yourself drink stations let guests be their own mixologists and make their own fun cocktails and drinks! Couples are going to adore this this trend because it gives their guests a hands-on experience, and it creates so many fun and photo-worthy moments!
New Approach to a Gift Registry
Hand towels and grills are nice to have, but more and more couples in 2021are going to be asking for cash and experiences rather than things. So, think European honeymoon, starter funds for a new home or a baby/pet, yearly passes to museums, passes to national parks, tickets to sporting events, and so on.
Private Wedding Photoshoots
More often than ever private wedding photoshoots are being requested. Couples no longer want to take their big day photos in public places with strangers. Instead, couples are seeking out beautiful private places to shoot their photos.
