The shape of things to come
Q. We've had to postpone our big day twice already and want to keep up with what's likely to be on trend moving forward. What do you think will be the major influences and looks for weddings in 2021?
A. Ian Smith says: Ian says: Relaxed and informal are going to be big buzzwords for weddings in the year ahead. After lockdown, many couples just want to be able to have an intimate ceremony or micro wedding and then party later with their family and friends, rather than delay their marriage any longer. Extended celebrations are also proving popular, spreading the joy beyond the wedding day over the course of a long weekend or even a whole week.
In terms of decoration, greenery and foliage remain strong for a more natural, eco-look with ferns, succulents and eucalyptus playing a major role in wedding displays. Outdoor weddings in natural settings continue to find favour as sustainability and eco-credentials remain key concerns. Concept and mood lighting help to create the right atmosphere and ambience at any wedding venue whether inside or out and this continues to be the case with neon signage and lights.
Catering is becoming more adaptable and personalised with bespoke cakes, artisan street food and mobile bars of various kinds in demand.
Finally, and most importantly, remember it's your wedding so it should reflect you as a couple and your personalities. While trends are important, the personal touches are what really matter.
