With many couples having postponed their nuptials until next year, and of course plenty who were already intending to tie the knot in 2021, it’s no wonder that Bridebook is predicting that next year will be one of the busiest ever in terms of weddings.

The organisation recently shared some of the top trends for ceremonies in 2021 and the Evening Standard reported on the ones to watch if you’re in full wedding planning mode.

One that could make for some particularly stunning shots for wedding photographers in Harrogate and elsewhere is statement bridal veils.

The platform has seen a 50 per cent increase in searches for this term, with the newspaper explaining that there are many ways in which brides are making this element of wedding fashion their own, including choosing “personalised veils embroidered with meaningful quotes and initials”.

Floral themes are also set to be big at weddings next year, with the publication pointing to the popularity of floral hoops, as well as hanging floral decorations and “flower-filled aisles”.

Couples are also expected to be looking for ways to cut the cost of their big day, which means more of them will be getting crafty and making at least some elements of their decor. In fact, Bridebook expects around three quarters of next year’s wedding to have some kind of DIY aspect to them.

If you have been forced to postpone your wedding this year, it’s important not to panic. Take your time and make sure that you contact all the relevant people, including your venue and other vendors as well as your guests.
