5 Wedding Trends to Watch For in 2021

Keeping up with all the latest fashion trends can be tough. One week you’re being told to wear this color, and then the next week, that color is officially out. The next week it’s back in. Can’t everyone just make up their minds?

While that situation is a bit tongue-in-cheek, fashion trends do come and go with each passing year. While the changes aren’t tied to our Gregorian calendar, you can start to see shifts here and there before a new trend comes out.

Wedding trends can even be a bigger deal, and we know you want your big day to be perfect. You’re going to need more than those badgley mischka shoes and perfect cake to make it the best day of your life.

For those tying the knot, or helping someone do so, in 2021, we have some trends you should be on the lookout for.

Small Weddings

If you have ever helped someone plan a wedding, you know one of the more exhaustive things is finding out who to invite. Both the bride and groom may have large families, and plenty of people they want to celebrate with. What can start out as a list of 50 can quickly turn to 150.

That’s why many people are turning towards small or “micro” weddings, narrowing a guest list to just 30-40 people. These more intimate ceremonies take away a lot of huss and fuss with hundreds of people and help you save money for other big things in your life.

Simpler Wedding Dresses

Noticing a trend here? Instead of going big, it’s time to go basic. Many more brides are opting for simpler, more basic style wedding dresses. That doesn’t mean you can’t go with the most elegant dress in the world, but going with a simple design and your Badgley Mischka shoes is perfectly fine.

We all know how exciting it is to have a dress with pockets, so why not have a wedding dress with pockets? It’s a comfortable design that is quickly becoming a trend in 2021.

Creative Lighting

Depending on where your nuptials take place, you might have the option for creative lighting. Hang lights from trees or use white Christmas lights around for a different kind of ambiance.

If you’re not moving your wedding outside, look to bring in as much natural light as possible. That’s not only a trend in home buying and remodeling but is making its way to weddings all over the country.

Variable Food Options

You can see it as a good or bad thing, but many people are very particular about what they eat. Some don’t eat gluten, others are full vegan, and some don’t eat fish.

In the past, wedding menus were set, and that was it. Don’t like the food? Too bad.

But now, more and more caterers are offering various options for food. You can now have enough options to serve everyone who has a particular diet and choice of food.

Cocktail Hour

Taking a trend from our friends across the pond, nowadays, more weddings are offering some kind of mid-event between the ceremony and the reception.  Don’t forget the bachelorette party ahead of time with some fun like MALE STRIPPERS.

This event is for those people who need to eat or drink something and can be seen as a kind of a cocktail. You can have ham and cheese plates and refreshments coming around to satisfy those who are waiting for you and your groom to make an entrance.
