Wedding Trends 2021: Our Favorite New Ideas for The Year

While the situation caused by the pandemic has brought many changes to the wedding events as we know them, the time that couples, families and friends will celebrate together again, is coming very soon! Weddings in the following year will be more personal and meaningful as never before, celebrating love, unity and all the important things in life! New wedding trends will arise, longer extended destination weddings with fewer guests will be the wish of many couples and a focus on bespoke elements and intriguing design details will be even more prominent. Let’s have a look on ten of our favorite new trends and ideas for the weddings of 2021!


Wedding Dresses With Sleeves

Wedding Gowns with beautiful billowy sleeves, delicate drop shoulder silhouettes and an understated romantic style will reign this year. As a master of delicate femininity and romantic style, Monique Lhuillier presents a new haute couture collection with relaxed Spanish flair and a seductive innocence. Floral and white silk bridal gowns with voluminous sleeves, off-the-shoulder necklines, delicate lace, and unexpected shapes, all come together into a captivating collection, ideal for an intimate destination wedding at a Lake Como Italian villa or a private beach wedding celebration in Mykonos, Greece. For the ultimate destination wedding style, combine these sophisticated gowns with soft wavy hair in a chic, loose half updo or have them cascading freely on your shoulders in full modern elegance.

Fairy Lights In Modern Structures For Outdoor Weddings

For a dreamy and enchanting ambiance, take the classic fairy lights to the next level using them to create a sparkly bespoke canopy or geometric backdrop for your wedding reception. It’s the perfect way to personalize your wedding lighting adding an awe factor to your event design. We love it for an intimate outdoor micro-wedding dinner in one of the Greek islands, to frame the table and set the tone or around the bridal table to highlight the space and add some instant magic.

Layered Table Settings

With couples opting towards smaller guest lists, the focus is turned to a more elaborate and high-end wedding design and event styling. The wedding tablescape is masterfully transformed into a harmonious composition of fine handcrafted elements, decorative details and opulent floral centerpieces. The natural and sustainable look remains more current than ever, breathing understated luxury and grandeur. From our beach glamour wedding at Nammos in Mykonos island, with fine mix and match porcelain dinnerware, hand-crafted linen fabric menus and organic floral creations in an ocean palette to the bespoke block print linens, custom ceramic, painted plates and glassware, and free-form bloom arrangements of our jewel toned Kefalonia luxury wedding, celebrations are becoming a canvas of unlimited creativity.

Pampas Grass Wedding Decor

One of our favorite trends in wedding florals for 2021, pampas grass is versatile, modern and eco-friendly, perfect for all wedding styles and adds pizzazz and character to any flower arrangement and decoration. Its big tufts of wheat-colored feathery flowers add texture, volume and movement. The characteristic form of pampas is ethereal stalks that can be used for large and impressive floral creations and blended into uniquely shaped wedding arch, standing - out at any indoor or outdoor wedding décor. Get inspired by this pampas grass wedding we produced exclusively for our Lebanese couple at Four Seasons Athens in Greece.

Wedding Color Palettes With Soft Greens & Yellows

Soft and mellow color palettes are the most stylish option for the 2021 weddings. We love the unexpected combination of deep colored or dusty greenery with delicate flowers in pastel blue, pink and white hues. And, with “Illuminating” yellow as 2021 Pantone’s Color of the year, we are sure that this optimistic and vibrant hue will earn its place in the color palettes of this year’s weddings!

Modern Romantic, Eco-Chic Wedding Decor

Beautiful eco-friendly wedding design, handcrafted elements focused on sustainability and décor details inspired by the textures and hues of nature are combined to create the new luxury style of 2021. Terra-cotta and ceramic tableware, candleholders & fine crafted accessories for the wedding table setting, custom made and hand-painted dinnerware, monochromatic wedding color palettes, dried flowers, wicker and rattan furniture are only some of the eco-chic, aesthetically beautiful details we love for the weddings in 2021.

Elevated Personalized Takeaways

Couples are really investing into creating an unforgettable guest experience more than ever. Beautiful bespoke, handcrafted favors and welcome bags full of surprises make your guests feel appreciated and set the tone for your wedding concept and style. And for an even more special treat to your destination guests you can opt for an array of local products native to your wedding location as we designed for our couple’s destination wedding in Kefalonia island: jarred sweets, colorful flowers, accessories by local artisans can all be personalized to match your wedding theme and color palette. Or get inspired by the linen wedding petal confetti bags we handcrafted and embroidered with the couple’s monogram and confetti bags we handcrafted and embroidered with the couple’s royal monogram and were the perfect celebratory touch and wedding favor for the destination guests in Santorini.

Personalized Fine Gastronomy Experience

After a long absence from restaurants and bars, the couples of 2021 crave to recreate this personalized culinary experience, with a wedding menu and cocktails tailored to their preferences, prepared, presented and served stylishly and most importantly safely. Individually served canapés, elegant, seated dinners with a dedicated server per two or three guests, and even a private chef that will prepare your entire micro-wedding dinner out of the kitchen of your own secluded luxury villa venue are only some of the options for the reception dinner of your 2021 wedding.

Greece Destination Weddings

With outdoor and al-fresco weddings more popular than ever before due to Covid  restrictions and social distancing, Greece is the perfect wedding destination to have a safe and stunningly beautiful wedding in 2021. The numerous gorgeous Greek islands and smooth and sunny climate, offer an infinite array of open-air venues, including olive groves, pool terraces overlooking the sea and private sandy beaches where you can create your own wedding haven. Despite the challenging circumstances we face due to the pandemic, we plan safe, romantic and meaningful destination weddings in Greece, for our amazing couples and their destination guests.   

Italian Villa Destination Weddings

To get away from it all and celebrate your destination wedding in Europe with full privacy, intimacy and timeless elegance, one cannot think of a more romantic luxury wedding venue than a secluded and opulent Italian villa. Lake Como is considered one of the most desired wedding destinations in the world for 2021 weddings and boasts some luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful properties perfect for your lakeshore Italian nuptials.
