Planning A Wedding With Trends That Are Here to Stay
In aid to help you out in this rush of the moment, we have decided to bring you concepts you might want to consider during this new normal.. Ideas that are not to be misplaced but trends that may be here to stay!
The trend of bold wedding looks, old-school colourful palettes, and guest-centred packages are the new murmurs. And though this does not mean an end to traditional classic white, it surely does give room for the modern revolution! With alternative ideas and retouch of individuality, we now have novel experiences of having a minimalist wedding with equal touches of maximalist to take in!
Here, below are seven top trends to contemplate:
1. Micro Wedding
A micro wedding is an intimate celebration with no more than 50 guests. It includes the bride and grooms’ closest friends and families. Giving way to what the couple earnestly desires and dreams with loved ones being in attendances.
What are benefits of a Micro Wedding?
It is in regulation with limited gathering restriction law, ensuring a safe celebration.
Budget consideration- having shorter guest attendance naturally reduces the cost of the wedding.
While planning a wedding, it becomes about what is important to you. With a shorter guest list, we have more movement and room for intimacy. Perhaps, we can skip the rounded tables for one long banquet style to encourage bonding and new beginnings. Such a suit can be further pertained by entertainment and banquet course, where the couple can have the concept of their liking. Something that best describes their personality.
Hence, micro weddings are the ideal solution. Again, breaking the bonds of convention and cliched weddings is a new trending concept. Though it still features some traditional wedding elements, but on a smaller scale.
Celebrity As a Trend-setter
The British singer – Lily Allen’s wedding with David Harbour was one of the earliest adopters to the micro wedding trend. Her spontaneous Sin City wedding in September was a surprise to everyone. And at the same time, it inspired many others to step up their games with their weddings.
As Sarah Allard, editor of Hitched explains:
Micro-weddings are set to be famous for 2021, but that’s not to say you can’t still celebrate in style. Minimizing on guests gives you an extra excuse to splurge on that incredible designer gown or the honeymoon you’ve always wanted!
2. DIY Wedding Decor
With sustainability and garden weddings on-trend, DIY decor is another trending feature we will find. At present, many small businesses have taken reign from the larger companies with the pandemic. These small businesses provide economical and environmentally conscious retouching we all need.
From DIY flower arrangements to detailed table runners and centrepieces at tablescape has caught quite an eye. The crafty use of stringing fairy lights and elegant colours is another addition to the evenings to make our venue look magical.
3. Bold Wedding Looks
Bold colours and patterns are other things we do not want to miss on. With an era of fashion risking in place, couples have been encouraged to modify their outfits to their likings. Passing over stuffy traditional classic suits and gowns, many prefer lighter and elaborating statement looks.
Colourful Wedding Suits
For grooms, grey tones, burgundy, tweed, checks, jacquard prints, and floral are new IN! Double-breasted, bohemian style and morning suits are also observed making a come back in style.
Exceptionally detailed wedding gowns
As for the bridal looks, the palette has been expanded to add bigger and bolder details. From statement veils inspired by Meghan Markle and Hailey Baldwin’s version contributing of cathedral length veils to big bows, loads of tulle, volume tiers, shorter dresses, and suits have made a trending highlight in the market usurping envy. This trend is all about daring concepts. And we believe, 2022 to promise extensive bolder colours, shapes, prints, and lengths.
4. Floral Statement
Impactful floral displays and stylings are reeling in many people. The elaborate floral displays are moving from the tabletops to span over the ceilings to the floor. These are known as flower clouds. Pampas grass, ferns, wildflowers, hydrangeas, dried silvers dollars, and smokebush wedding flower choices are the many in-demand flowers picks for this decor. These not only add further volume and texture but also provide a serene atmosphere.
Many floral designers take strides on recycling florals wherever possible, resulting in Avant-grade sustainable and crafty wedding ideas to match the temperament.
5. Colourful Pallets
Pops of colour, new colouration, modern print mixing, and assertive tints have widely replaced the neutral basic colour palette of classic white and green. Although the white colour is still widely used, it has been restyled with bold colours. This trend is visible across the venue, from formal dress wear to the tablescape and cutlery.
What are the increasingly popular colour choices?
Varying shades of grey, blue, rose gold, terracotta, mauve purple, and burgundy are some examples of famous pick and match we will see for the few upcoming years.
6. Small Wedding Cakes
The latest wedding cake trend consists of one or two-tier cakes with exquisitely detailed handcrafted large sugar paste flowers to make a lasting impact. These sugar flower decorations are in contrasting colours ranging from pastel to bolder dark shades, compared to the paper base colour. These confections are more of a fine art botanical masterpiece framed within minimalist dreams.
7. Picture Perfect
With limited gatherings still in regulation, many couples have taken creative steps for their big reveal for those who could not make it to the wedding. Couples are now waiting to share their first photos with an editorialized moment across social media.
The Instagram-inspired photo booth attracted much attention last year, with couples and their friends enjoying different filters such as vignettes and tinted images further touched up by slimming effects.
A modern take on old vintage film strips, further appealed by styling guests and taking high-resolution portraits.
Here, we have grand, elegant states or homes in contrast to city weddings. Photoshoots in these lush places such as botanical gardens, castles, greenhouses, and historical sites are sure to look good on social media. Hence, calling many couples to go all-out for one day for such Instagram worthy backdrop.
Ellie Goulding is an example of a celebrity leading this trend. She held her reception at dazzling Castle Howard in Yorkshire.
