7 GRAND wedding decor trends to look forward to in 2021 according to the planner
As of 2020, two clear wedding trends have emerged. Read on to find out more and plan yours accordingly!
There is little doubt that wedding trends for 2021 will be influenced by the effects of the 2020 coronavirus lockdown. One could go from the growing trend for multiple intimate micro-weddings over 4 to 5 days to allow for more numbers or maxi weddings where everything from your outfits to your music is oversized and extravagant, despite the guest list numbers being den comply with state guidelines.
This is because from 2020 two clear avenues will emerge: those who feel the need to reduce themselves and focus on a close-knit group of loved ones and those who are passionate about celebrating with all of them are important, mean a BIG celebration.
In every state of India there is something unique to love and choose from. Now that weddings abroad are a distant dream until at least 2022, it is time to bring in the goodness of all of the local markets and suppliers from the destination of your choice in India. More and more couples are turning to independent shops and local designers to buy their decor and stationery, rather than opting for international designers or even big city names. Choosing local vendors will be the new theme, from caterers to photographers getting more bookings as couples invest in the economy on their doorstep, cut travel costs, and ensure high priority guest safety.
The use of decorative elements will be massive. Luxurious fake flowers will be huge because they can create a high impact at a fraction of the cost of fresh flowers. Statement pieces that all of your guests will want to take pictures of are a must have. This trend is so important because we live in a time of experience where guests expect more and the ambience you create with decor is such a big part of it. Think huge chandeliers with cascading flowers, ornate 12-foot trees, themed photo areas, and impressive centerpieces.
Inclusion of lush greenery. Tables in cascading foliage or ceremonial backgrounds with a variety of leaves and lots of green on the show are the first choice for sophisticated wedding jewelry. Think ferns, succulents, garlands of eucalyptus, or even a cactus or two. The best thing about this natural decor trend is that it can be incorporated into almost any wedding style, farmhouse, modern industrial definitely, destination palaces and terraces of course!
Sustainably conscious / eco-weddings.
In these eco-conscious times that we live in, couples are looking more than ever for ways to host responsibly. This means avoiding unnecessary waste and trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Wedding venues are becoming more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Many venues that offer in-house catering use products from the region, be it flowers, fruit, spices or meat
One of the new wedding trends is for couples to upcycling or commit to zero waste. This can range from offering wedding flowers for good causes to living plastic-free on your big day
Sweet or savory, beautifully made wicker tables serve as pre- or post-dinner meals and are becoming more popular than ever. Since the number of guests this year will not rise to over 300, people would have spent more time together and in what trendier way of doing this than via themed pasture tables that are made on site.
Areas like food and drink can be made unique and personalized, from custom cocktails created with the couple’s story to unique canapés and desserts that reflect their own style. Choose from stylish options like vegan street food vendors, crepe and waffle bars, prosecco vans, retro-style gin bars, and even vintage ice cream trucks.
Wedding trends in 2021 also include changing the way families involve loved ones on their big day, disturbing as it may be that circumstances may prevent those you love from being there in person. Capturing your wedding day as a movie is becoming increasingly popular and a great way to relive your day and broadcast live footage is supported by many over the next few years. So, Zoom-Barabar-Zoom is this year’s mantra!
Immersive entertainment experiences
Weddings in 2021 are much more about experiences. That said, the focus will be much more on curated entertainment, with guest safety coming first. Unfortunately, big musicals or Bollywood troupes with 50 performers or even breathtaking acts like Cirque du Soleil won’t be the taste this season. Instead, couples wanting a big wow moment for their weddings opt for the ultimate display of their love with a massive drone light show or intimate solo performances by famous choreographers and ultimately choose the best of the locally available entertainment within the destination.
