Anticipated wedding trends for 2021


New year 2021 is finally here! A brand new year has officially rung its bells and the season has brought all the colours along. The bride and groom and their families plan the wedding day much in advance to avoid chaos and a flawless ceremony. The season now also brings along so many more trends that are defining the ‘X-factor’ of the ultra-modern yet traditional wedding ceremonies of the young couples. Wedding Affair, owing to the ongoing new year time, shortlists some of the trends that are are to rule the upcoming wedding seasons this year.

Personalised Touches

Personalised touches like caricature-based wedding cards, wedding attires with personal messages, and other personal touches to the wedding decoration have become the demand of the season. The wedding designers and event decorators want to listen to your needs and imbibe all the personal touches that make the bride and groom feel as special as they can.

White or Green Weddings

Simplistic, modern and elegant — nature-based decor or simple white flowers and curtains are some of the favourites of the season. The young couples want it simple and fuss-free while being beautiful and modern. Also, increased awareness has also lead people to go for an eco-friendly and green wedding. There’s something undeniably classic and timeless about an all-white wedding, which is why it’s been a go-to for brides for decades. But just because an all-white color palette has been popular forever doesn’t mean you can’t reinvent the wheel. In fact, we encourage you to do so! There’s so much you can do with white. Think white dresses for your girls, white tableware on the tables, and white flowers at the altar.

Non-Traditional Decor

People are willing to take risks and go for balloons and ribbons for their wedding decor. Peppy and unique is also the call of the season. The couples want to do for their wedding what has never been done before. Lanterns and DIY paper decorations are also getting the necessary impetus. If you’re planning a non-traditional, chic wedding, start by swapping out the things that you don’t value for the things that you do. Get creative!

Maximalist Installations

As we all know, ‘maximalism’ is the call of the season. This applies to weddings as well as other things like wedding couture, jewellery and parties. Hence, maximalist floral or light decorations for the wedding are to be seen everywhere. People have been putting in efforts in hiring the best florists and decor artists for their event planning.

Adventurous Colour Palettes

To be out of the league, people have been planning their weddings in the most adventurous colour themes to match their own fervour and zest. Also, people are more willing to take risks this season to be as gaudy as possible. When selecting your colors, consider the temperature —the colour wheel is divided into warm colours (such as red, orange, and yellow) and cool colours (such as blue, green, and purple). If you want your colours to pop, opt for contrasting hues. Or if you want them to blend seamlessly, pick colours within the same family. There are no rules when it comes to your colours, so have some fun with it! Here are some unique combinations you may not have thought of yet.
