1. The Trend: Tents and Twinkly Lights
Recent pandemic safety guidelines and restrictions have inspired an increased popularity in outdoor weddings. With outdoor weddings comes tents and lighting, and with lighting comes the fairy-tale beauty of twinkling lights hanging in the trees, under tent roofs, along paths and so on. The ambience created is magical!
2. The Trend: Colors
Couples are predicted to begin using way more color to replace the swaths of white and cream we often see in weddings. Think fresh, nature-inspired colors and surprising color combinations that inspire!
3. The Trend: Voluminous Florals
Greenery has been trending for a few years now but big florals is another trend that’s quickly catching up to its naturally beautiful counterpart. Oversized floral arrangements are impressive yet surprisingly sweet, and couples are loving this element in their wedding décor
4. The Trend: Relaxed Vibes
Weddings are generally a formal event with some couples choosing to throw more casual affairs but with the pandemic comes a lot more small weddings and weddings outdoors. Couples are embracing this idea in 2021 and planning a relaxed occasion from the start: inviting less people, creating a comfortable atmosphere and making the few people who are invited feel cared for.
5. The Trend: Tropical Vibes
We can totally see destination weddings taking off this year with the lifting of pandemic restrictions as more and more vaccinations roll out. Bright and modern tropical designs bring just the right kind of vibes to beach weddings and island celebrations.
6. The Trend: Metallic
Mixed metals were really hot a few years back when the industrial look was big on the wedding scene. The industrial look has faded a bit but metals have remained and this year, that shiny metallic look will star in many weddings.
7. The Trend: Texture
We’re seeing this trend hit the wedding cake industry hard where bakers are creating these amazing tiered cakes with a combination of textures to really make it as interesting to admire as it is delicious to eat. Wedding invitations are another wedding element that looks amazing with utilizing different textures!
8. The Trend: Lush Greenery
As expert printers of fine stationery, we have seen the greenery trend blossom from a few fresh designs into its own genre of wedding design. The options are endless and the artwork is amazing.
9. The Trend: Dark Color Palettes
Dark color palettes have been swallowed by the moody wedding color trend in the past but that doesn’t really encompass the vast opportunity available in the world of dark colors. We’re seeing this trend manifest in florals, abstracts and geometric designs. The results are fabulous!
