Wedding Trends For 2021

wedding trends for 2021

Following the announcements around lockdown easing with weddings returning and small numbers being able to attend this spring and back to normal by summer we’ve been anticipating the top 10 trends you’re most likely to see!

1. Tradition

Many couples will be going back to tradition, celebrating family, culture and heritage with weddings in places of worship.

The classics – white dresses, ring engravings, first dances, the bouquet toss, throwing rice, full henna and traditional customs.

Every Brown & Newirth ring comes with a complimentary engraving!

 

2. Full Hollywood Glam 

We’ve all been shut away without the excuse to get our glad rags on in so long you can bet brides, grooms and guests across the UK will be desperate to go all-out!

Think bold lips, long lashes, decadent patterned ties, shirts and prints paired with diamonds galore.

3. Sustainability & Ethical Choices

So many more people are making a conscious effort to reduce their impacts on others and the planet. Sustainability at a wedding looks like using ethical suppliers, reducing waste, second-hand dress shopping and donating or repurposing wedding outfits after the big day.

All Brown & Newirth rings are made with ethically sourced diamonds and we have recently been re-certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council for a third time!

4. Weekday Weddings

Many weddings were unfortunately postponed from last year and with weekend bookings looking sparser this year as a result you can be expecting more weekday wedding invites!

 

5. Rings that Fit Together

Rings with an indent to allow an engagement ring to sit perfectly atop are a popular choice. However, buying rings as pairs is becoming the norm.

Why would you not want the matching wedding to your engagement ring or to coordinate perfectly with your other half? Book a virtual appointment to find the perfect rings that fit together and with you here.

6. Buying british and local

After a very tough year for many British businesses we are become much more keenly aware of the need to support our local suppliers and the wedding industry in particular.

More UK based weddings local to the bride and groom with British sourced produce are on the horizon.

7. Small-scale Micro Weddings

After being forced to dramatically condense guest lists for weddings to go ahead this last year, the trend will be continuing with small, intimate gatherings.

 

Wedding with only close friends and family are becoming ever more frequent in 2021 and 2022 bookings – even after the restrictions are lifted.

7. Oversized Everything

Everything but the guest list that is – huge skirts, voluminous hair, cakes to feed all the guests and lots of diamonds around the wedding band!

9. Florals 

From the decor to the cakes, dresses, shirts and ties, florals are IN this season!

Inspired by the first buds of spring is our signature Bloom engagement ring collection – each ring has a detailed floral setting and our most popular designs are available next day delivery to your nearest boutique: https://www.brownandnewirth.com/collection/bloom/ 

10. Acts of Gratitude

Needless to say we’re all going to be so much more grateful to be surrounded by our loved ones this year when guidelines allow.

Tokens of appreciation will be more present than usual.
