2020 - what a year! We are SO ready for the 2021 wedding season, and all the lovely chaos that it brings. As the pandemic restrictions are lifting on the wedding industry, we are excited for the many wedding trends that are sure to come along with it.

We all know that everyone wants to do something a bit different, whether that pertains to flowers, styling, catering, or the type of dress you plan to wear. With everyone eager for social gatherings & happy affairs, our covid brides especially want their wedding to be remembered. 

Not sure how to make your wedding stand out? We've got your back. Here are some of the top wedding trends for 2021, post pandemic. If you're looking for inspiration for your wedding, consider one of the following trends to create the wedding of your dreams.


Pastel Colors

While pastels have come and gone in the past, they are IN right now. Pastels bring a sense of joy & happiness, which is exactly what the world needs right now. You'll see a wide variety of light shades such as blues, pinks, and purples popping up this wedding season. The pastel shades look stunning and can easily match any type of décor or style due to their simplicity and versatility. 


Big Food + Beverage Budgets 

This year, with everyone being so ready to party, we are seeing many couples devote a larger portion of their budget to food + beverage. After a year of perfecting our at home charcuterie boards, couples are looking to wow their guests with the best hor d'oeuvres. They are looking to wine & dine their guests with an amazing, plated meal. Oh, and did someone say dessert? Couples are also splurging a little extra with late night snacks, hoping to keep their guests full & happy so they celebrate all night long. 


Micro Weddings

While capacity restrictions might be lifting, many are still opting for more intimate celebrations. If you’ve never been to a Micro wedding, they are smaller, more intimate ceremonies that include 25 guests or less. If you want to be more intentional on who is there and the feeling of your event, consider hosting a smaller wedding. Plus, then you’re only celebrating with those you truly care about.


Eco-Friendly or Sustainable Receptions

During this wedding season, couples are finding ways to host their event in a sustainable or eco-friendly way that allows them to cut back on waste while still creating the event of their dreams. Consider choosing a venue where the food is locally sourced, or they upcycle decorations to make your wedding eco-friendlier.


Comfortable Wedding Shoes

We all got pretty used to our sweats and tennis shoes during lockdown. After more than a year of sneakers, slippers, and slides, wearing high heels is not as important on the list. We're seeing brides opt for the more comfortable route with sandals & flats, and we’re here for it!
