Here at Scarlet, we’ve come up with five fabulous predictions regarding the wedding trends of 2021 that you can soon expect to see featured in the weddings of loved up couples around the world. So have a look at some of these predicted trends and ensure that your wedding features a splash of just some of these latest and greatest trends.
2021 Wedding Trends
1. Perfect Pearls
The accessory that never goes out of style, pearls are a timeless ornamental addition that bring style and grace to any occasion. Though pearls may often accentuate dazzling wedding jewellery, we predict that in 2021, pearls will dominate many aspects of the wedding scene. From being woven into hair pieces, to embellishing wedding dresses, glittering within floral decorations, and twinkling atop cakes, 2021 is all about the pearl, and we couldn’t think of anything more sophisticated and elegant.
2. Week Long Weddings
Full of fun, laughter and memorable moments with loved ones, it’s easy to see why for many people their wedding day is one of the happiest and most special days of their lives. And because weddings are just so fabulous and fantastic, why simply celebrate on one day when you can enjoy an entire spectacular week? As one of the most popular trends we can’t get enough of, wedding weeks are soon to be all the rage in 2021, with couples hosting extravagant week long events in honour of their love, whether in the UK or by planning a destination wedding. Reuniting and celebrating with loved ones, keeping the champagne flowing and the celebrations sparkling, week long weddings are an absolute must for any couple in 2021.
3. Decadent Desserts
Sculpted sugary treats, delectable dainty pastries and glazed gourmet creations; desserts have always been a delicious and important part of any wedding reception, but 2021 is set to take this one step further, by making desserts and chocolate concoctions the focal point of the wedding feast. With extravagant dessert tables, sweet shop styled pick and mix displays and an ever-increasing array of creative fantastical deserts due to feature within weddings across the UK, 2021 is set to be a truly delectable year, bringing a new meaning to the term sweet hearts.
4. Floral and Fancy
Dramatic and seasonal floral arrangements are set to be the order of the day, with chandelier garlands, flower covered walls and draping foliage all expected to feature in weddings in the most exclusive wedding venues in London, in the UK and around the world.
5. Luxury Drapes
Pleated, plain, stretched and ruffled - drapes will be all the rage as couples look to add a sense of luxury and sophistication to their design. Using fabric and draping, you are able to transform the most regular of wedding venues into breathtaking space. We would suggest neutral tones in a variety of chiffon and taffeta fabrics for a wedding reception. However for an after party or a themed wedding, we definitely suggest going for something with colour to set the tone for the celebration!
