2020 is no normal year. The global pandemic and the social-distancing policies that have been put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 have effectively ruled out large gatherings.
Couples who are (perhaps optimistically) rescheduling their weddings for the same weekend next year. As a result, countless weddings that were supposed to take place in 2020 have been moved to 2021.
If you are planning on hosting a more intimate gathering, there are many amazing businesses who are ready and waiting to help make your vision a reality, and to help you navigate through this uncertain time.
Businesses and couples are harnessing their creativity more than ever, and will offer greater personalised services and elements to ensure their couples have a memorable event.
Below are 5 trending wedding ideas that are as popular as ever:
With social distancing and extra hygiene measures in place for all aspects of our lives, hosting an intimate event still requires the appropriate measures. You can still host a classy event without compromising on style. Engraved glassware with individual names will become the new norm. Guest will be assigned their very own glass and not only do they make great keepsakes, they will ensure guests are not picking up the wrong glass to drink from.
2. Trendy Sanitiser Stations
You have seen these in most shops, businesses and services. Sanitiser stations let visitors know that you are taking that extra measure of hygiene. These stations don’t have to be sterile and boring. Add a nice table, a personalised sign asking guests to sanitise before entering the venue, dress up with a nice floral arrangement or decorations.
3. Alternate Guest Books
The traditional guest book still has a special place in our hearts but there are many alternatives out there especially for smaller gatherings. Our wooden surfboard sign is perfect for a beach style wedding and has enough space for an intimate group to sign.
4. Custom Games
During COVID, we saw a surge in popularity with board games, puzzles and other nostalgic activities. Our Tumbling Tower has always been a favourite with our couples because not only is it an interactive option to include for guests while they enjoy a couple of drinks, it also makes a lovely keepsake for your family.
5. Deluxe Personalised Gifts for Bridal Parties and parents
With weddings being greatly reduced in size, couples are opting to add a little luxury to their day, whether that be more opulent décor, high-end custom gifts or premium food and beverage options. It’s about ensuring they make the most of their special day even if they are unable to celebrate with everyone they originally waned.
