4 Wedding Trends That Will Emerge After the Coronavirus Pandemic

June 22, 2020

The wedding industry has been hit very hard by the coronavirus pandemic. So many couples were forced to cancel or postpone their wedding. But there are speculations about what weddings will look like in the post-COVID-19 era. Couples are curious, and so are we. While some suppliers, wedding planners, and vendors are already exploring Zoom weddings and online bridal showers, we spoke to industry experts about the new norm for weddings.

  • Weekday Weddings 

Bridebook has written a report that 64% of weddings in 2020 will be rescheduled to 2021. The same report also claims more couples will opt for weekday weddings to avoid any further delay to their big day. One expert was very enthusiastic, saying a full year brimming with weddings is a great idea.

  • Micro Weddings

Suppliers and wedding venues are beginning to see a surge in small weddings, with some even taking place in the garden or sitting room of the bride’s family. There will be more micro weddings and intimate weddings and there will be a shift away from traditional, crowded events. But the fact is, many couples will still look for a way to have a grand celebration while being COVID-secure.

  • Social Distance Weddings 

Wedding planners are already coming up with new ways to take on the post-COVID-19 era. A lot of people are still nervous about the virus so experts are opting for outdoor settings that will allow proper social distancing. This way, people be at ease and have a good time, just as they should. Planners are also reaching out to companies who can set up live streaming for guests that are unable to attend the event.

  • Online Weddings

There has been about a 10% increase in online weddings in parts of the world since the coronavirus hit us. Wedding venues are also beginning to offer virtual tours to help couples choose venues and meet with vendors through online platforms. Couples are also taking instructions on how to make decors from Zoom. We envisage that there will be fewer venue weddings in this era.
