Wedding Trends 2021

With the present, optimistic feeling that weddings will soon return to normal, we have turned our attention to what awaits us in 2021. Wedding experts already have some ideas about the upcoming trends in the wedding scene for the next year. So, if you are planning your big day for 2021, here are some ideas to include in the celebrations:


Sustainability is a fashionable focus for weddings in 2021, with many eco-conscious couples exploring ways to make their special day environmentally friendly. Up-cycling will have a huge impact on wedding planning choices with recycled paper looking popular for invites and save the date cards. Vintage decor, family heirlooms, and retro-chic are all back in style. Additionally, to the ecological benefits of integrating upcycling in weddings, it can also have a family symbolism that is of particular concern after the events of 2020.

Wedding Trends 2021


Personalization is looking to be the most popular wedding trend of 2021. Distinctive wedding dresses with personal details like embroidered messages, hidden dates, or sewn patches are seriously on-trend, and with the soar of social media, it is simpler than ever to be inspired by wedding-themed Instagram and Pinterest pages. Many couples have made the decision to support local businesses as well which has been so important for them to survive in 2020. Websites like Etsy, that allow buyers to order bespoke designs from individual retailers, are flourishing. We can expect to see lots more intimate personalities shining through in custom-made bridal attire over the coming months.


Vegan food has grown in popularity over the past few years and many committed vegetarians have made the move to transition to a fully vegan lifestyle. There were around 150,000 vegans in the UK. That number has now multiplied to an astonishing 720,000 vegans, and the rising trend is the same across most of the world. This cleaner, greener lifestyle is making massive waves in the wedding industry. One of our caterers Barrett’s Event Caterers has an entire dedicated plant-based menu and lots of scrumptious vegetarian alternatives. The expectation is that a lot of couples will select a meat-free menu for their 2021 wedding.


In the past weddings were very much divided between him and her. The groom was supported by his groomsmen, and the bride was backed by her bridesmaids. This gender divide has become more blurred in recent years, and the expectation for 2021 is that many wedding celebrations will be a mix of age and gender, as same-sex weddings become more popular and couples choose a more mixed ceremony that is a better lifestyle fit for them.

As one of the best wedding venues in the North West, Thornton Manor is taking bookings for the next year. Our committed wedding planning team keeps well-informed of all future wedding trends and will be more than happy to advise and assist you in planning your special day.
