The Wedding Trend Report 2021 needs your help

written by


Do you want to contribute to the Wedding Trend Report 2021? Due to be released early January!

But this year we’re doing things a little differently.

This year it’s not all about trends. Instead we’re looking at how 2020 has changed weddings moving forward into 2021.

Because there is nothing like a global pandemic to shake up the way we do things. And that applies to the way we celebrate and what we prioritise too.

In fact, I wonder if we’ll look back at this time as the point at which weddings broke free. Left the traditions of old behind us along with the pressure of social expectations.

Because the ultimate wedding trend that never gets old, is the celebration of LOVE.

So we’ll let you into a little secret…

Our biggest wedding trend prediction is ‘weddings done your way‘.

Because if your couples have postponed their weddings once or maybe twice, and/or had the immense pressure of planning during a covid-19 crisis then we can guarantee they main focus will be what is important to them.

How do they want to celebrate with their friends and families after the heartbreak of 2020?

So this year we’re very much focusing on the ‘stories‘ that have come out of this year…

Tales of resiliency from couples who’ve gone through devastating postponements or cancellations and the wedding businesses that have pivoted in a crisis.

We’ll be looking at the state of the wedding industry, the changes we’ve seen and what we can do to aid recovery.

AND we’ll be sharing all the usual tips and advice from wedding experts around the world but this year the focus we’ll be on strengthening your business and the new wedding styles we all need to be aware of.

Not heard the term ‘micro‘ or ‘sequel‘ wedding yet? You will do.

We’re working away here at Wedding Academy HQ to put together this entirely different trend report but we need collaborators to make it visually stunning.

If you have a recent styled inspiration shoot that showcases your ideas for a pandemic or post-pandemic wedding then we’d love to share it with our readers as part of the report.

The search for the most inspired 2021 wedding shoot submissions is now on!
