Setting the scene
A defining feature of planning and organising a wedding is choosing a theme or style for the big day, which underpins the details on everything from invitations, to ceremony set-ups, reception tablescapes and venue styling. Metropol has rounded up three trends tipped to influence weddings in 2021 and beyond.
Embracing rustic and vintage vibes is nothing new when it comes to wedding décor, but the style endures. Mismatched and kitschy glassware and crockery create a fun yet fashionable atmosphere, and when applied to furniture and furnishings can make attaining the tables and seating easier than taking a more uniform approach.
COLOURS A PLENTY
More and more couples are leaning into bold colourful weddings themes which feature less creams and white and more fresh, nature-driven hues. Said to be bright, fun and happy – these palettes are present on everything from invites and stationary, to décor, tablescapes and food.
This might sound silly, given that flowers are synonymous with weddings, but blooms fresh and dried really are taking centre stage in nuptial styling. From large roof hangings and table centrepieces to more modest bouquets and bunches – the power of flowers is unmatched.
