Learn more about these popular wedding trends to stay in 2021, and some to stay for years to come!
Popular 2020 Wedding Trends to Stay in 2021
With live streaming, you now have endless invites to the viewing party! Whether you are limiting your costs or trying to limit in-person interaction due to the coronavirus or any health concerns, live streaming is the best option to add to your day!
This service had a big spike at 2020 weddings in Springfield Missouri and the surrounding areas! While live streaming has been common at corporate conferences, the service is new to the wedding world, with couples wanting extended family or far-away friends to still be able to tune into the big day. Contact us to learn more about having a live stream at your wedding ceremony!
Check out what our brides Jennifer and Chantell said about having a live stream at their wedding ceremony! “The picture quality turned out perfect. The thing that Chantelle and I have enjoyed most is being able to go back multiple times and rewatched our ceremony. We will be forever grateful for the video that we have of the whole ceremony. We both have families that live so far away and they all enjoyed watching it.
Chantelle’s father’s side of the family all live in South Africa and my mother’s side of the family lives in Germany and they are so blessed and grateful that they were able to watch us two get married. So thank you so much!” -Jennifer Skime
While live streaming was new to the wedding world in 2020, videography is definitely not new in the Springfield market, but it sure was a top choice this year! Videography is much more the norm for millennials and generation Z, (where boomerangs and Tik Tok videos have become a part of daily life), so it’s no surprise this increasingly popular wedding service reached new heights in 2020.
Hiring a videographer has become a no-brainer for the couples of today, and we know this service is a game-changer. Witnessing couples’ reactions to seeing their wedding video is a one-of-kind experience, and some couples have shared their wedding video more frequently than their wedding photos.
Packaging photography and videography together will be a trend to stay in 2021, and bundling the two with Complete Weddings + Events can help you save on the services as well! Contact us to see examples of wedding videos in the Springfield area, and learn more about videography options for your day!
Another element that was typically only experienced in the corporate event world has also crossed-over to weddings this year. Complete Interactive uses technology to engage your guests with fun, fresh activities that elevate your big day. These services are also perfect if wedding guests want to stay seated at their table but still be engaged in the event safely.
Complete Interactive brings a unique element to your day that all guests can see, take part in, and enjoy. You can customize and choose from the four main elements to bring the best experience for you and your day.
- Live voting on song choices to customize the playlist to what guests want to hear
- Wedding party quizzes between the bridesmaids and groomsmen
- Trivia on the couple all guests can complete in
- A social wall that brings your wedding’s social media to feed to the full screen
With size limitations on gatherings throughout 2020, many couples knew the show must go on! Thus the popularity of micro weddings grew. These smaller weddings typically only have 15-25 guests, but can still feel grand at unique venues with plated meals and customized experiences, from decor to Complete Interactive, that still make the day unforgettable with your dearest family and friends.
