Without a doubt the 2021 wedding season will be impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak and we will see a change in trends from recent years. Overall weddings will be more intimate, sentimental & closer to home. Here is a little list of the top trends we think we will be seeing more of in 2021.
There is no denying we are becoming more environmentally conscious as a society. The wedding industry is beginning to look at eco-friendly alternatives to tradition elements of weddings. We are going to see wedding stationary made from recycled paper, more DIY decorations, outdoor weddings, biodegradable confetti & even some ribbon wands.

Charity wedding favours
Charitable donations as wedding favours is gaining traction and we think it is a fantastic idea! It is a great way to show your support and donate to a cause thats close to your heart. Larger charities even offer place cards when you donate.
Supporting local businesses & shopping locally has become an everyday occurrence. We have started to shift from shopping online & realising the positive impact of sourcing local products and supporting local businesses. More brides are going to local dressmakers, paper specialists and using organic local caters.
Over the past 10 years the wedding industry has evolved with new traditions & embraced a new culture but it appears as though age old traditions are making a come back! With everyone being in lockdown over the past few months, we've all been missing our family & reflecting on what really matters. Smaller ceremonies & local churches are the way forward. We are also seeing more traditional wedding dresses making a comeback, specifically the Victorian dresses with high necklines, layers & lace.
Veils are becoming less common these days but thats not to say there is no headwear. We are going to see headbands, crowns, flowers & plenty of ribbon. Simple hairstyles are in & with that we want a simple accessory rather than a long flowing Veil.
