As we approach the end of 2020, it’s difficult to predict the trends for 2021 although looking through our upcoming ceremonies and the inquiries we are seeing, we have been able to pull together a list that we think will play a prominent role in the next year for beach weddings and vow renewals.
Outdoors is best
Being encouraged to spend time outdoors has reminded us how much we appreciate the space, the freedom, the relaxed ambiance, and the simple pleasures in life like the sound of waves lapping against the shore and a golden sunset. At the center of a wedding day or vow renewal is love … the formality and tradition that once seemed necessary slips away and we return to the essence of the day. The seashore is a scenic, spacious, and romantic place to gather and say the all-important vows.
Vow Renewals without a landmark year
It’s been a pattern to see vow renewals to celebrate landmark years following a marriage from 15 years (crystal), 25 years (silver), 30 years (pearl), to 40 years (ruby), and beyond. Now, more than ever, we are all recognizing that every year is a celebration, and why not celebrate 7 years (wool), 8 years (bronze), or 12 years (silk) – and to be even more spontaneous, why not set a new anniversary date and make a new tradition on a date which does not match the original wedding day. That may be a good solution when planning a specific destination vow renewal with select family and friends.
Flowers in her hair
From subtle to a statement, wearing flowers is both whimsical and romantic, a departure from every day that reinforces just how special this day is. They can blend into a theme or stand-alone, either way, they are sure to add a touch of joy to the day.
The flowers can then be pressed and saved, maybe even added into a photo album of the magical day.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to colors. At Suncoast Weddings we are firm believers that no matter what the pundits say, the colors that you choose are the perfect ones for your wedding or vow renewal. Looking at potential trends for 2021, we can see blush being a popular choice in the planning of ceremonies so it seems that is going to be evident in the 2021 albums. From blush-colored roses on the arch to blush chiffon drapes, there are so many ways to incorporate this shade of pink that it is truly versatile.
Fun photos to capture the mood of the day
It used to be that when you scanned through a wedding photo album, you could almost predict every pose, every grouping, and every expression – that needn’t be the case. Having some fun with the photos not only adds an element of excitement to the day, but you are also left with candid memories capturing a special moment in time.
The photos can also include members of the wedding party so everyone gets in on the fun.
One of the reasons to celebrate your love on the beach is to throw the rulebook away so embrace the setting, embrace the experience, and enjoy every second!
