Are you planning to get married this year? Do you want to be one of those trendy brides with an aesthetic wedding? Then you might want to check out current wedding trends and incorporate some ideas into your wedding plan.
To be on top of your wedding planning, it is best to take time and look at what is popular nowadays when it comes to wedding ideas. There is so much you can learn about that will help you achieve your dream wedding. Now, grab your pen and paper and take down notes as we go through the current wedding trends.
We are all used to seeing over-the-top weddings in the past, but this year? It’s all about small gatherings and turning the whole wedding into a more intimate and memorable event. Due to the pandemic with all its restrictions, all couples who get married were forced to have a smaller, more intimate wedding.
Surprisingly, it turned out to be a hit where both the groom and the bride only shared this one precious moment of their life with the people that really matter most to them. Intimate weddings will likely become a thing for the upcoming years as well with or without a pandemic.
An intimate wedding is also the best way to save a lot when it comes to wedding expenses as you will only have to prepare for a few guests. Aside from ensuring everyone’s safety, you can also spend less if you opt to steer away from over-the-top weddings.
Are you an environmentalist? No problem as the current trend for wedding favors is all about sustainability. Have you heard about plantable seed paper? If not let me explain it to you. This kind of paper is embedded with wildflower seeds that you can plant and grow.
It can be used in making budget-friendly wedding favors or even use on your wedding invitation. This way you can make sure that wherever that piece of paper ends up it is good for the environment plus it can add some greenery when it grows.
Most guests who received plantable seed paper brought it home and planted it in their yards. You can also suggest the same with your guests by putting a small note suggesting the idea. They will surely appreciate it and enjoy it at the same time.
In the digital age that we are currently living in, people are messaging one another on their devices via social media or messaging apps for almost everything.
You can take advantage of this and send out digital invitations instead. You do not only help save the environment but it can also help you cut costs, time, and effort. Additionally, you can check other sustainable wedding ideas that are widely available on the internet.
A wedding motif is an important factor that can make or break your wedding. Choosing a color to stick to as a motif can be hard which is why most brides choose their favorite color as their wedding motif even if it does not look good at all.
By knowing the color trend this year, you can easily choose another color that suits your taste while making your wedding look aesthetically pleasing. For over the decades, the shades of blue, pink, green, and yellow amongst other colors have become a staple of wedding motifs.
However, there is a wide variety of a particular color that you can choose from. For example, blue comes in light blue, sky blue, navy blue, etc. It is up to you which shade you think will look good and compliment your whole wedding theme.
Technicolor has as well stolen the limelight this year. Weddings have had technicolor decors ranging from table centerpieces to the bride’s bouquet and other wedding decors. Combining different palettes can be pleasing to the eyes, especially if done properly.
Wedding dresses that can be transformed into another look after the wedding ceremony and bridesmaid dresses that can be styled in multiple ways are in the limelight this year. Have you heard of the popular infinity dress? I bet you do and it is something that you must consider.
It is incredibly inexpensive but can be worn in different ways. Your imagination is the limit. As long as you can think of a nice way to wear it you can do it. You can also change the design from the ceremony to the reception so that you will look like you have changed to another dress.
Infinity dress is the most chosen dress for the wedding entourage from the maid of honor to the bridesmaids. For the bride, on the other hand, you can also create a dress that can be transformed from a wedding gown to a wedding cocktail dress for the reception.
Puff Sleeves On Wedding Day
For all the 2021 bride-to-be, Vogue has spoken, your wedding dress should not simply have sleeves, but it should be puff sleeves. It was introduced last 2018 but the trend carries on to this year as well.
It doesn’t matter if it is a short or long sleeve as long as it is puffed, then you are in the trend. But beware, not everyone will look good on puff sleeves so it is understandable if you want to skip this one and opt for a more traditional type of wedding gown.
At The End Of The Day
What suits your taste will still be what is important. It is still all about you and your wedding should follow anything that will make you comfortable. Trends are just a guide that helps brides-to-be like yourself acquire ideas for their wedding day. It is not something that is required to be followed.
