​  ​​ 7 reasons your big day will be nothing like your parents’ wedding
7 reasons your big day will be nothing like your parents’ wedding

Weddings have transformed over the years and one thing is certain… these beautiful events look completely different from when our parents got married. One big shift happened from 2010-2019, when we noticed that engaged couples were planning weddings to please themselves instead of just pleasing their parents. They incorporated individual details and wove in personal touches to reflect their interests and relationships. It was such a refreshing change.

As we move forward in this new decade, we’ve seen another major shift in weddings.  The Covid-19 pandemic has created a new reliance on technology and on elegant alfresco settings. In fact, here are the top wedding trends that we are seeing right now, which truly suggest that this is not your parents’ wedding!

  1. Live streaming technology. Couples are using platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, EventLive and LoveStream to share their wedding day with a wider audience. Some choose to use a laptop or cellphone while others opt for a professionally recorded video of the streamed reception and wedding.

  2. Event hashtags. These days, anyone can have their own ‘Bennifer’ nickname and corresponding hashtag. Couples are including these fun monikers on save-the-dates, invitations, and event signage to encourage guests to document and share the fun of the big day.

  3. Sharable Instagram moments. While weddings might be more intimate, couples are going big on details and on achieving the most Instagram-worthy wedding moments.

  4. Non-traditional venues. Beautiful and distinct outdoor backdrops such as parks, gardens, barns and vineyards have made these events even more extraordinary.

  5. Elaborate tents. These blank canvases are transformed with stringed lights, farmhouse furniture, beautiful blossoms, and gorgeous tablescapes. Its as if the tent has become as important as the dress.

  6. Non-traditional meals. From food trucks to s’mores, brick oven pizzas to taco bars, we are seeing fewer sit-down dinners than we did in years past.

  7. Wedding Liability Insurance. Modern brides and grooms are more conscious of protecting their big day. This may come in handy while planning your wedding to protect you in the event of injuries, property damage or alcohol-related accidents, especially if you are holding your wedding in an unconventional location such as a park, beach or small restaurant. Many traditional venues require the purchase of this coverage as well. Simply request a quote today at www.wedsafe.com.
