2021 Wedding Venue Trends
Wedding Trends, Ideas and Inspiration
2020 has undoubtedly been a difficult year for the wedding industry and has had a big influence on how weddings will take place in 2021. If you’re in the process of planning your wedding and are looking for some inspiration, we’ve compiled a list of wedding venue trends for you to take a look at.
Here are some of the biggest trends in wedding venues to embrace in 2021:
Micro-weddings were already around before COVID – but are now more popular than ever. Usually with a guest list of up to 50 people, they’re exactly the same as a bigger wedding, just with less guests.
The focus of micro-weddings are the details, because you’re only celebrating with a small number of people you’re able to focus on creating an incredible experience for your guests, or splurge on your dream dress, venue, food or decorations. They’re also very intimate, the bride and groom are able to celebrate and spend quality time with their closest family and friends.
Cottagecore is easily one of the biggest fashion trends of 2020, so it’s no surprise that is now a popular wedding theme. Cottagecore is a romanticised, whimsical aesthetic perfect for weddings, often featuring pastel colours, lots and lots of flowers, outdoor venues, cosy tents and twinkly lights.
When adding the cottagecore theme to your wedding venue, tents and marquees are becoming more and more popular. Showcase wood, like tables, chairs or even beams, utilise wildflowers and greenery, in garlands hanging from the ceiling or laying on tables and make use of mood lighting in the form of string lights, candles or lanterns.
Due to the backlog of postponed weddings from 2020, there will be a lot of weddings in 2021. This means it’s more likely that people will start to look at different days to book their wedding and weekday weddings will become a big thing. If you’re wanting to hold your wedding on a weekday, make sure to send out your invitations well in advance to make sure your guests have time to make a plan to attend.
If you’re wanting to get married on a specific date like an anniversary, there might be a chance it falls on a weekday. This doesn’t mean you should miss out; holding your wedding on this day will be incredibly special and meaningful. There are also other benefits to having a weekday wedding like more availability and cheaper rates from vendors and suppliers.
Weddings that last over a couple of days or even a week are becoming a popular wedding venue trends in 2021. They’re a great excuse to spend quality time and celebrate with your closest family and friends. You’re able to include a lot more wedding themed activities into the weekend, like brunches, pampering sessions, rehearsal dinners, etc. This also makes venues that allow you to stay on site and have room for a wedding ceremony or reception a popular choice.

With weddings becoming more minimalist, it’s not a surprise that there has been a rise in minimalistic and simple decor. There are a number of different styles that fall under the ‘minimalistic’ category including rustic, modern or contemporary, industrial, natural or organic and romantic. The minimalist style usually features a neutral colour palette, lots of foliage, mood lighting, beautiful architecture and elegant tablescapes.
We’re also seeing wedding décor having a statement piece of beautiful, lush greenery and flowers, as part of altars, archways, centrepieces or garlands hanging from the ceiling.
