Trends

McFann was joined by other members of the wedding team to discuss recent wedding trends.

One of the biggest they’ve noticed: Couples are simplifying weddings, opting for “micro weddings” amid the pandemic as well as to keep the celebration more personal. As a result, destination weddings have become more popular, which extends the festivities into a vacation and helps limit the guest list, as many won’t make the trip.

In the era of COVID-19, outdoor weddings have also grown in popularity and planning has shifted from in-person meetings to largely virtual discussions via Zoom and other platforms.
