Although 2020 proved to be a difficult year for many, weddings are still going strong. They just look a little different. With 2021 giving everyone a fresh start, it’s only natural that weddings will continue to adjust and shift. Whether you have just started thinking about having a wedding or are getting ready to plan one soon, keep reading to discover some of the top wedding trends for 2021.
1. Outdoor weddings
One major trend that is apparent for 2021 weddings is the prevalence of outdoor wedding venues. Things like country club weddings and golf course weddings are becoming more and more popular. This may be because of the increased airflow and space you may experience at a country club wedding, making it a safer and more enjoyable choice for anyone looking to consider pandemic precautions.
2. A relaxed environment
Another increasing trend is more relaxed, carefree weddings. With all of the stress on a global scale, it makes sense why people would opt for a less stressful wedding option. The best part is that a relaxed environment or atmosphere can look different for everyone. As an average, the budget for a wedding ceremony and reception is around $28,385. However, even those with higher or lower budgets can benefit from making their wedding more relaxed. A more relaxed environment means less overthinking and structure and more enjoyment for the planners, the couple, and the guests.
3. More greenery in the decor
Along with more country club weddings and less stress, weddings in 2021 may also have more greenery. From plant-themed decorations to color schemes, nature-inspired elements are a great way to bring some of the beauty of plants and the outdoors into your wedding. Things like bundles of leaves or different kinds of plants can be incorporated into nearly every wedding style and work with a variety of venues.
Not only are plants making their way into country club weddings, but sustainability as a whole is too. With sustainability, in general, becoming more and more popular, it is only natural that this would manifest in weddings. From more plant-based catering options to plastic-free decorations, people are increasingly trying to make sure their weddings are a little bit more friendly to the environment.
With 2021 giving everyone a new start, we will inevitably see some new wedding trends this year. From outdoor, country club weddings to a more relaxed atmosphere to more plant-inspired decorations to more sustainable weddings, weddings are sure to be full of life and love.
