A study which analysed Google search data has revealed that more couples than ever before will be opting for a small garden wedding in 2021.
The coronavirus pandemic, with all the restrictions being placed on gatherings, has forced couples to change their original wedding plans. So, as couples rethink their wedding plans, what do the top wedding trends for 2021 look like?
Here are the top 10 wedding trends for 2021 according to Google search data:
Overall, the most popular trend for 2021 is small weddings with a +122% rise in year on year searches since June 2019.
This is then followed by garden weddings with a +84% rise in year on year searches since June 2019.
Small weddings are here to stay
There is a lot of uncertainty around when larger weddings will be allowed to go ahead again. So, it is no surprise that we have seen a significant increase in the number of people searching for small wedding rules and inspiration. It looks like a lot of events planned for 2021 will be more intimate, with fewer guests.
More people will be having garden weddings
We now know that there’s a lower risk of coronavirus spreading outdoors, so it’s unsurprisingly that there’s been a 115% increase in the number of people searching for garden wedding inspiration, when you compare June 2020 to June 2019.
There will be more winter wonderland weddings
With the majority of 2020 summer weddings being cancelled, many have been moved to the end of the year or even postponed until 2021. And, as there is bound to be an increase in demand next year, this might have forced more people to look at winter dates.
