2021… The biggest year for weddings yet?

With two thirds of weddings expected to be postponed until 2021, next year is set to be the biggest year for weddings in history!

We are all waiting for the day that venues can re-open their doors, and the sounds of laughter & love fill ceremony rooms and dance floors once again.

2021 weddings give us all something to look forward to.

With this is mind we thought we would take a look at some of the hottest, post-pandemic wedding trends, & what you can expect to see at venues next year.

Creative Décor

The DIY wedding trend has been on the up for some time now. With brides (& grooms of course) having more time than ever to think about wedding details, we expect to see a further shift from traditional décor, & more creative, modern, takes on display.

At Lightbox Lane we know that it is bang on trend for couples to get creative themselves! Our DIY Collect & Return service allows our customers to do just that. They can simply book the items they wish to hire online. Collect two days prior to their event, decorate & make fabulous, then return two days after. Easy peasy!

Grazing Tables

The rise of insta-worthy antipasti boards has inspired a new wedding trend which is set to be hot for 2021. We expect to see couples ditch the traditional wedding cake & desert table, and replace it with cheese towers, displays of meats, artisan breads, crackers, nuts, fruit & mini deserts.

From our Rustic Barrel Table, to our Extra-Large Ladders & Trestle Table, we have some unique pieces, perfect to create a grazing table fit for a king & for keeping guests happy with a late-night snack or two!

Personalised Menus

Because of this sway towards ‘grab & go’ grazing tables, couples will be using the opportunity to serve food & drink which pays homage to their backgrounds & which represents them as a couple. Whether it be family favourite deserts, cocktails named after friends & places which really mean something, or custom messages in fortune cookies, personalised menus will be big in 2021.

Bigger & Better Parties

Let’s face it, who isn’t missing a good old knees up! Lockdown has us all missing socialising with our friends & family, albeit of course for a very good reason.

We expect to see the rise of unlimited prosecco on tap, bolder & brighter cocktails, boozy popsicles, and mojitos coming to a 2021 dance floor near you!

We want to make sure your dance floor stands out! Our 4ft Rustic Wooden Letters are perfect for getting your message across & wowing your guests with a big statement!

Hottest words for 2021 include ‘PARTY’, ‘DRINK’, ‘SMILE’ & of course ‘DANCE’!

Speaking of dancing, have you fallen victim yet (like us) to the most addictive lockdown craze by far? We fully expect to see this craze infiltrate weddings in 2021, predicting some questionable & hilarious first dances! The culprit? Yep you guessed it… Tik Tok!
