How to plan your 2021 wedding - top tips from Blue Strawberry Group

Monday, January 18, 2021 - 10:00

Planning your 2021 wedding may feel daunting after last year, so Blue Strawberry Group are sharing their top tips to help you navigate these uncertain times and plan your day to perfection!

1. PRIORITISE

What’s most important to you? Smaller gatherings could allow for a more indulgent experience and can be followed by a big party later on. Or you could split your day into sections and host separate guest lists after the ceremony for, say, brunch, afternoon tea and a cocktail party!

2. BE FLEXIBLE

You may need to compromise on location or opt for a weekday if you are committed to tying the knot in 2021 as many traditional venues are already booked on key days/dates. If you need to postpone, your caterer can help with most details - see Summer to Winter.

3. BOOK SUPPLIERS

With so many postponed 2020 weddings, availability will become more limited as Spring approaches. Booking earlier may offer savings, but make sure you read the small print to avoid large fees if plans change. Blue Strawberry clients are reassured with flexible terms and conditions and a generous approach to cancellation fees.

4. DESTINATION UK

A UK wedding lowers the risk of cancellation and you can still celebrate in your chosen style! Our wedding planners can bring any theme to life and our talented chefs can create a wealth of global dishes - check out some of our signature canapés or wedding breakfast menus featured in Your London Wedding.

5. CATCH UP

Weddings this year will offer precious opportunities to catch up, with more couples rejecting traditional expectations to make more space for interaction. Speak to your caterer about extending the welcome reception (adding substantial canapés or food stations to stop guests getting too tipsy!), swapping pudding for a dessert station or even creating a chef’s table experience (check us out at Kensington Palace). A raucous after-party with late night snacks, cheeky cocktails and dancing into the early hours is another option of course…!
