Well, couples are still planning weddings and they obviously are doing it quite differently than ever before. Here I am just reflecting on some new trends, definitely not my personal belief.
New trends involve mainly virtual live streams and micro weddings to adapt to smaller guest numbers. There are more weddings at home, in gardens and sequel weddings. A sequel wedding is when you have a small wedding, but the sequel is the larger wedding you plan for the future with a bigger guest list!
Because lots of other wedding elements aren’t possible, the ceremony has become an important part of the wedding. This probably also is a reason why more and more weddings turn into elopements.
Wedding planning is getting more high tech. Now we have virtual wedding fairs, venue tours, and wedding websites. These might be great for some of you, as virtual tours and fairs save time and money. Meeting with wedding suppliers on zoom is also time efficient and less costly for you.
Couples having wedding websites is a relatively new but terrific trend too. It is a one-stop for all your guests with every detail, including recommended hotels, maps, etc., and where you can collect info from your guests, too, like dietary issues. You also can put polls on there or even playlist suggestions.
Also, they are easy to update and amend. People can rsvp on them, and everything is in one place. If you aren’t tech-savvy, get 1 of your guests to do it or even pay a professional as it can be quite cost-effective. Nowadays, you can find many many wedding website options for free.
Generally, couples are also giving more details on invitations, like mask-wearing, social distancing, etc. Among other 2021 wedding trends are also monogrammed accessories, including personalized face masks.

The details are really important and inform everyone beforehand. The virtual live streams are recent but never seen them yet haha.
I remember when I got married I set up a simple website to keep track of RSVPs. It’s so much convenient than having to receive mail in response
I think there will totally be a lot of virtual weddings this year. Good point!
its better to have a simple wedding with limited guest….its safer and you can save more
When my wedding happens I have about 12 people we would invite and probably 6 of them wouldn’t show since they live out of state. I have always wanted a small wedding.
These do make sense due to the pandemic going on right now, the smaller wedding and virtual tours probably isn’t the worst though
Monogrammed accessories and personalized face masks look like a great addition to the wedding trends. I guess in 2021, people will prefer having a small guest list and other COVID precautions.
Fashionable masks and hygiene kits are added to wedding trends. What I love about weddings nowadays is that it is more intimate than the usual since a limited number of guests are allowed.
Wedding tech has advanced so much. We had a wedding page with some info listed but it was not interactive. This is so cool! Thanks for sharing!
I actually think this is a good idea to be more organized! If you pay for a website, you could also just create a facebook group and post announcements there. A website’s probably better tho
most of those wedding websites are for free.
I can’t imagine what a virtual wedding would be like but I like the fact that it’s more intimate.
