Each new year brings many wedding trends, which ensure an unforgettable wedding! You can easily integrate these trends into your wedding planning  without having to spend unnecessary effort.

With our 10 must-haves, you will definitely surprise your wedding guests and celebrate a very special wedding day!

Don’t miss the following trends!

Trend 1: Geometric wedding arches

Very trendy for a wedding in 2021 are geometric wedding arches. Especially the “hexagon” shape which is totally on trend. You can set up these wedding arches in different variations to best fit your style and wedding theme.

In case you’re wondering what a wedding arch is and what it’s for at all: Your wedding ceremony and the ring exchange will take place in front of or in a wedding arch. This arch is used as the backdrop for a bridal couple and draws the attention of your guests to you. Since the wedding trend of the hexagon wedding arch is a real eye-catcher, it is also perfect as a photoshoot spot. So definitely a must-have. 😉

Trend 2: Dried flowers as decoration & bridal bouquet

Among the wedding trends for 2021 are dried flowers as decoration in your wedding venue or even as a bridal bouquet. With this decoration, a very romantic mood is created and by being dried, the colors of the flowers are more muted and go in the direction of pastel.

If that sounds like your style, you can’t go wrong with a dried bouquet as a bridal bouquet. There are endless varieties of bridal bouquets with dried flowers. You can also customize the bridal bouquet to match the floral decorations in your venue. By the way, a great argument for dried flowers is that you don’t have to throw them away after your wedding. You can use them as dried flower decorations at home or use them for other celebrations.

Trend 3: Ice Cream Rolls as dessert

Often, ice cream floats or even cotton candy floats are offered at weddings. Among the fancy wedding trends in 2021 are the “Ice Cream Rolls”.

The Ice Cream Rolls have their origin in Southeast Asia. Popular is this treat especially in Vietnam and Thailand and is offered there almost on every street corner. This trend is now coming all over the world and offers a completely different and new ice cream experience.

If you want to offer your wedding guests a special experience, you could book an Ice Cream Roll provider for your wedding. He or she will prepare an individual Ice Cream Roll cup for your guests. This preparation takes place right in front of your guests and thus also serves as entertainment.

Trend 4: Jumpsuit instead of wedding dress

The wedding gown has been a tradition since the beginning of weddings, which,may be interrupted with wedding trends in 2021. Namely, another trend is wearing a jumpsuit instead of a wedding dress. The jumpsuit here is classically kept in the color white and can be accentuated, for example, by lace.

Whether you as a bride want to join in on this trend is definitely up to you. Not everyone feels comfortable in a jumpsuit or it may not be your idea of the perfect wedding outfit.  Still, it’s nice to be able to break with old traditions and implement new ideas. If not for the ceremony, consider a jumpsuit for your reception or getaway outfit!

Trend 5: Industrial style wedding

In the last few years, the industrial style has arrived in private homes and has now spread to the wedding sector. The 2021 wedding trend says that an industrial-style wedding can be very modern,and incredibly romantic.

The industrial style itself is very simple and is dominated by the materials metal as well as concrete. However, it can be wonderfully combined with retro lamps, fairy lights, trendy dried flowers, and other decorative elements to create a warm and softer ambiance at your wedding.

Trend 6: Wooden elements

Another trending style is the use of wooden elements for your wedding. Wooden elements create a connection to nature and can be incorporated as decoration or even as location furniture and are a bit more rustic.

If you are celebrating outdoors, wooden elements are a good choice, as they can be optimally integrated into your location. But also in a location, which is not outdoors, wooden elements can be planned wonderfully.

Trend 7: Donut wedding cake instead of a traditional wedding cake

You’re likely familiar with the “Donut wall”, which was a component of the wedding trends in the last couple of years. However, another donut wedding trend has been added for 2021: instead of a classic wedding cake, there is now a donut wedding cake. (Yum!)


The idea comes from the awareness of not being too wasteful with food. If you have a small wedding party and offer a candy bar after dinner, it is very likely that there will be some leftovers from the classic wedding cake.

With the donut wedding cake, usually, the top part is a cake of your choice, and the lower layers are made of donuts. You can consult with your pastry chef to determine what kind of donut you would like your donut wedding cake to be. This cake doesn’t have to be “unspectacular” by any means – you can also create a special cake with colorful accents or beautiful decorative elements.

Trend 8: Wedding Lounge

At your wedding in 2021, a “Wedding Lounge” should not be missing. This trend is one of the most popular wedding trends and consists of a small corner in your location, where you can relax.

The Wedding Lounge usually has a sofa, one to two armchairs, or several chairs. Here your guests can comfortably settle down during the celebration and chat or take a break from partying. A Wedding Lounge can be decorated and implemented in a variety of ways. There are no limits to your creativity.

Trend 9: Cocktail show

If you want to offer your wedding guests delicious cocktails and great entertainment, you definitely can’t do without a cocktail show. In a cocktail show, your wedding guests will be offered an unforgettable show with, perhaps, nitrogen and fire by your mixologist.

This cocktail show can be used, for example, as an alternative to the magician show. In any case, this entertainment is a program highlight that your guests won’t forget!

Trend 10: Color Smoke Bombs 

Color smoke bombs are one of the wedding trends of 2021, which on the one hand can be used for wedding photos or as an alternative for doves or balloons after the ceremony.

You can use them to create special effects in photos and make your beautiful wedding moments unforgettable. In addition, you will give your wedding guests a lot of fun with such smoke bombs.

Our Wedding trend conclusion:
