2021 Wedding Trends

Es Florals Dried Flowers Wedding Florist Cedar Rapids Iowa City 

The pandemic definitely changed wedding plans last year. We scrambled weekly to support our wedding couples. This year, there will be uncertainty but the following ideas are the wedding trends we're seeing for 2021:

  • Weekday Weddings: Since many weddings from 2020 have been postponed to 2021, most dates are already booked or booking up quickly. 
  • Micro Weddings: The pandemic made wedding couples think about having smaller, more intimate weddings with fewer than 50 guests. 
  • Sequel Weddings: Many wedding couples had small gatherings in 2020 and planned larger events for 2021.
  • Backyard Weddings: This is one of our favorite ideas! So intimate and cozy!
  • Pod Seating: We are still practicing social distancing and the smaller, more intimate table is becoming more popular for 2021.
  • Celebration Care Packages that include treats and small vases with fresh flowers, tiny bundles of dried flowers or flower confetti.
  • DIY Flower Arranging Parties continue to be popular for 2021. Invite your friends and family to take part in your wedding! Save money on bulk flowers by creating your own flower bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and floral decorations and have fun in the process! Check out our DIY Flower and Greenery Buckets here!  
  • Sustainable Weddings: Sustainable flowers and greenery from local growers were big in 2020 and continue to be popular! Help support your local economy! Find out more here
  • Dried Flowers also continue to be extremely popular for 2021 - they can be used in bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, centerpieces, reception decor, invitations, favors and even on the wedding cake! Flower and leaf colors tend to be more muted but intricate details and textures become more prevalent. Plus, dried flowers last for years and can be placed in a vase or container, keepsake frame or memory box. E's Florals stocks many types of dried flowers and grasses.
