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.
This is just the beginning of our series of new trends for 2021 weddings with wedding planners. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments below, and we will try to respond in new blogs.
