Wedding décor trends change every now and then. Last year, with the pandemic, weddings saw a lot of changes and new trends. Some of them have been improvised while there are new décor ideas, such as paper flowers and mini-cakes that make up excellent wedding venues. Here are a bunch of wedding décor ideas and inspirations you can use.
Wedding Trends to Embrace in 2021
Everyone loves a huge three-tier traditional wedding cake. Sure, to accommodate all the guests, there is a need for a cake that large. But the trend is surely changing, and there are many reasons for it. Firstly, the COVID-related problem is requiring people to remain as contact-free as possible. So serving pieces of cakes on plates is not the best thing to do. Plus, with intimate weddings becoming a thing, the number of guests is also decreasing on average. Therefore, mini-cakes are surely taking over!
You will see a bunch of mini-cake ideas on Pinterest. These single-tier cakes have delicate patterns on them, sometimes even decorated with fresh flowers to go well with the wedding’s theme. Not only are these cakes convenient, but they also look really sophisticated, cute, and trendy sitting on tabletops.
- Giant Paper Flowers
Fresh flowers have been in use for decoration purposes for ages. People are now shifting towards modern and sustainable alternatives that will make their wedding décor stand out. Giant paper flowers make up an incredible backdrop for the wedding ceremony, as well as a great décor for the rest of the venue.
In comparison to fresh flowers, paper flowers are also more budget-friendly. In case you are tight on budget, you can use both types of flowers together and create a mix and match setup! Another benefit of using giant paper flowers is that they are available in a variety of colors that are not so easily found in real flowers, so you can go for bold color themes and have more creative freedom. These flowers are readily available on Amazon, where you will also find paper flowers that hang like garden flower décor.
- Sentimental Table Notes
It’s time to say goodbye to tabletops with plain boring guest names. People are getting creative with their tabletop notes, and it’s a fun and creative way to set a more intimate atmosphere for the guests and hosts as well.
Other than the name of the guest on the designated seat, tabletops have plates with either handwritten or printed notes. These notes have a brief message for the guests, such as a thank you quote, or any heartfelt message from the bride and the groom. You can put the notes on gold-themed plates and crystal glassware to make it more elegant and detailed.
- Wooden Furniture
A chic, minimalistic and modern touch is a must in wedding décor. Event planners and wedding hosts are achieving this with livingroom-like wooden furniture. Hardwood furniture items including tabletops, wooden crates, and even chairs are making their way into wedding décor. Boho wooden table design paired with lots of fairy lights and elegant flowers is a very trendy style these days. You can also use wooden settees and set them up with matching color-theme cushioned seats and pillows to provide comfort as well as sufficient seating for your guests.
Wooden furniture for wedding decor works best in conjunction with florals and lots of greens. It is also a very vibrant and lively idea for outdoor day weddings. Wooden furniture gives off a hip and trendy feel. You can check out various furniture stores online to get in-style wooden furniture inspirations.
- Bold Color Themes
While the décor is very important in any wedding, the dresses and clothing are also extremely important. So, when it comes to bolder color themes, don’t just think deep and hot pinks for the décor, but also try going unconventional with your choice of dresses. Perhaps matching the groom’s suit or tie color would do the job. Try wearing pastel colors or add pinks to your traditional white dress.
As for the décor, go bold in the choice of your flowers. You can also use bold-colored table runners to go with the rest of the beige table covers and seat covers. Bold color themes do not necessarily mean that you use a single color for all of the décor. Instead, try balancing it out with neutral and pastel colors.
- Neon Signs
Signations are a great way to make a wedding more upbeat. If you feel like making the wedding more fun and intriguing for the guests, use neon signs. These signs are also great for instagrammable pictures and professional wedding photos. You can create a dark and upbeat mood by dimming all other lights of the venue and using these neon signs to brighten up the place.
Neon signs that say the bride and groom’s initials are very intimate. Other things like “welcome”, “food served here”, and something for a picture backdrop such as “take a selfie” can make the whole venue come to life.
- Baby’s Breaths
Any wedding venue is incomplete without the inclusion of flowers in the décor. Whether you are talking about paper flowers or real ones, you can never have enough baby’s breaths in your wedding décor.
There are several simple ways you can incorporate baby’s breaths in the décor and give it a sophisticated feel. You can take a bunch of the baby’s breaths in a medium-sized, transparent glass bottle. You can either set these bottles on the tabletops or hang them amongst the hanging flower arrangements.
Baby’s breaths are very small and tweakable, so you can tie them up with tabletop notes and napkins as well. To create a uniform theme, the bride can wear baby’s breaths in her hair, while the groom can have a small bunch set in his pocket square.
While you are taking a lot of care of décor ideas such as tabletop notes and flower arrangements, don’t forget to give your guests a free wi-fi connection. Your trendy wedding décor is going to be worthy of sharing on social media, so use the AT&T new service and have a fast internet connection set up in no time. Communicating your wedding décor ideas with your event planner is very important. Do some research on your own and have everything set up just like you imagined your big day to be!
