Blog 2021 Wedding Trends
We may be nearly halfway through the year but there’s still plenty of time to take some inspiration from the hottest trends of 2021! So if you’re getting married this year, pick up some tips from the following…
Food always makes an appearance in wedding trends and this year it’s all about getting creative with your wedding food. We definitely noticed this trend starting to crop up in 2021 and it looks like it’s here to stay! Couples are now opting to swap the traditional three course meal for something more relaxed and informal. Food options such as sharing platters and meat carving at the tables are all firm favourites of ours as they create a more sociable atmosphere and encourage guests to interact with each other. If you’re choosing to have meat carved at the tables to your guests then why not nominate a ‘chief carver’ for each table and give them an apron and chefs hat to go with their new role!
Serving street food in the evening is another way that you can get creative with your catering. Here at The Kingscote Barn, we have our own wood fired pizza oven which offers a fun and interactive evening food option. Watch the chefs cook pizzas in the wood fired oven outside in our walled courtyard and then have it served freshly to you. Who doesn’t love a bit of pizza towards the end of the night?! Other street food options that our caterers can offer include live wok fire cooking, big paella pan cooking and crepe stations. Speak to our friendly catering teams about evening catering for your wedding!
Wedding cakes are a long-standing wedding tradition but 2021 is all about cake displays and cake tables. Instead of having a traditional tiered wedding cake, couples are now making more of a statement by having a display of different cakes to fill a larger table. Cakes are even being set up on vintage furniture (such as dressing tables and chest of drawers) instead of normal tables. Doughnuts are also popular with some couples opting for a doughnut display (or even a doughnut wall) instead of a cake!
Forget ‘Pimp Your Prosecco’, 2021 is all about gin! Serve a couple of different gin based cocktails to your guests throughout your drinks reception or just provide gin, a variety of different mixers and some fruit to jazz it up and let guests create their own drink! If gin is not your thing then you could do the same with other spirits. Or how about serving personalised cocktails instead? These could be your favourite classic drinks or a brand new creation just for the wedding. Name them ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’ or ‘Bride’ and ‘Groom’ to add to the wedding theme.
Rustic weddings are now even more popular than ever and this allows couples to really get creative with their own wedding decorations. We are so pleased to let you all know that we know have the choice for you to use rustic tables at no extra cost for your wedding!
