You may notice that wedding planning looks a whole lot different today. Trends have shifted and the wedding industry has changed almost overnight through pandemic mandates of smaller gatherings, and an increase in connecting digitally.. Here are a few trends that you can expect to see this year – see how you can make them fun, unique, and fit into your big day.
Micro-Weddings and ElopementsMicro-weddings and elopements are all the rage right now. It's low pressure and much cheaper than the huge events we've seen in the past. And obviously, much safer too. A smaller guest list doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun with this trend by going all out for the ones you love. Have that fancy dinner catered in, splurge on your bridal party favors, and make sure those invited feel especially cherished.
PhotographyHiring a photographer on your wedding day is nothing new, but now wedding photography looks more like something out of a high fashion magazine. Brides are now setting aside time on their wedding day for gorgeous editorial style photos. This is especially important for the relatives and loved ones that couldn’t be with you in person. When you reveal your wedding photos on your social media your loved ones will share in your joy and really feel like a part of your special day.
Unplugged CeremoniesCouples are now requesting their guests "unplug" upon arrival – meaning they must put down the camera, disconnect on social media, and enjoy the moment and company without distraction. Not only does this allow guests to connect and celebrate with the people closest to them but it also ensures that there are no phone screens in the cameraman's shot, and no photos are leaked before you are ready to share your big moment.
Outdoor Wedding Venues
Make the most out of your guest count by having your ceremony and reception outside. Not only do you get to gather all of your closest loved ones, but outdoor photography can be extra epic. Don’t forget to scout for photography locations when take your walk-through
