If you’re a couple planning your Irish wedding, then you’d want to know the wedding trends for 2021. This will help you plan a celebration that takes the recent climate of things into consideration and keeps people safe.
The wedding trends for 2021 will be, without a doubt, affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Already we’re seeing many changes occurring in the wedding industry, and most of them seem like they’ve come to stay.
2021 will be the year of weddings as lots of couples who postponed their wedding during the lockdown of last year, did so to this year. So here are some trends you’ll likely be seeing as couples adapt their wedding style to suit living alongside a pandemic.
There’s going to be such a build-up of weddings that weekday weddings will be popular in 2021. This is because most weddings that have been postponed from 2020 will be happening in 2021. These weddings have also taken over most of the weekend dates, so couples will have to choose weekdays.
Choosing to have a weekday wedding will mean a better chance to get the vendors and wedding venue that you like. If they are good at what they do, they’d have been booked out for weekends already. Their weekdays would however be free.
Micro weddings have been on the increase since last year, and that trend will continue into the new year. They are more intimate, fun, and easier to plan. You can have a perfect celebration with a minimalist tone which would mean fewer costs and more savings for you. You can then choose to invest that money back into your wedding for a celebration of higher quality.
Since you’ll most likely be having a micro wedding, use feedback from your RSVPs to specialise your wedding menu. Offer several choices that take into account food allergies, vegetarianism, and other food restrictions. Do the same with your drinks too, offering guests options between alcoholic and non-alcoholic so that everyone at your wedding can have a good time.
If you’ll be having out of town friends coming in, they’ll need accommodation and transportation. Weddings in 2021 will be dealing with really special guests because the couple will provide whatever transportation is necessary to bring their loved ones over. This is much better than having guests wandering about and getting lost.
From special lighting to balloons, flowers, and lots of greenery, wedding décor in 2021 will be stunning. The pandemic has given lots of professionals time to re-evaluate their work. It has also given couples some time to get creative where their wedding décor is concerned. Most of the colours to be used will be pastels. Neutral ones will also be used.
There is something about being on lockdown that is going to cause a lot of bold fashion choices for weddings this year. Being cooped up so long will have couples showing up and showing out at their celebration with their attire. So, brides will be wearing dresses with drama that are also free.
That means voluminous dresses that are still easy to party in and have fun. Satin is one of the favourite fabrics that will be on the popular side when it comes to Irish wedding gowns. It is very classy and luxurious, so Irish brides won’t be complaining. We might also see the use of boisterous sleeves.
At the bottom of all these wedding trends will be your wedding style, which will dictate which works and doesn’t for your wedding. So think of a trend and picture it alongside your wedding style. Your personal tastes and preference will also come into play when it comes to choosing a trend to adopt for your celebration. So let them guide your choices for the Irish wedding of your dreams.
