It is officially 2021 and we are so excited to jump into the new year! One of the most exciting parts of a fresh year ahead of us is seeing what types of wedding trends will take off! 2020 was a difficult year for weddings, as many couples had to postpone or cancel their ceremony or reception, which means we didn’t get to see all of the decor and trends that we would have liked to.
What we did get to see in 2020 was usually filled with bright, bold colors, organic decor, lots of texture and more minimalist design techniques. There are always a few elements that we like to take into the new year, but there are definitely some we would love to leave behind in 2020. If you are looking to start planning your 2021 wedding, we have some predictions on what will be popular this upcoming year.
In 2020, many people got used to having a much smaller, more intimate amount of wedding guests. They also got used to having outdoor weddings. It is likely that this trend will continue and many couples will choose to utilize a tent for their reception. There are so many ways that you can dress this up and make it exactly how you want. A big tent is an awesome blank canvas for you to go in and make it your own. You can add bright, bold colors or you can stick with the nature theme and keep things organic and neutral!
It is no secret that your lighting can make all the difference at your wedding reception. A good concept lighting design is what will set the mood for the evening. You can choose many different options when you are creating your lighting, which can include industrial bulbs, elegant fixtures, chandeliers, lanterns or even candles.
The lighting is especially important on the wedding night after the sun goes down. It will create a romantic and warm mood for you and your guests when the room is lit up by beautiful lighting decor. Don’t be afraid to try out some unique options and even consider repurposing fixtures!
Something that started in 2020 due to COVID-19 and will likely continue in 2021 is the trend of eloping and celebrating later. The main purpose of your wedding is to get married to your partner, so many couples do not want to wait until it is safe to have a ceremony and reception. It is becoming increasingly popular to elope and plan a party later. Some couples are choosing to do it a few months after and others have opted to celebrate on their one year anniversary. Whatever it is that you choose, you will have plenty of time to plan the perfect party without having to wait to marry your partner on your wedding night!
At Indian Creek, we love to celebrate with you, your friends and your family. Though 2020 has kept us apart from a lot of you last year, we are hoping that 2021 can bring us all back together!
