A cottagecore themed wedding is the newest trend that will be extremely popular this year. It’s a style that is both vintage-inspired and infused with elements of romance and being in harmony with nature.
This theme became popular early last summer when we all had to stay home to help flatten the curve of the pandemic. The quiet and understated way of living made many of us realize the importance of achieving inner peace and mindfulness.
Roll back the years and Imagine yourself walking across a field of wild flowers, enjoying the aroma and the serenity of the view. The natural beauty brings a feeling of calm and the desire to get back to our roots. A cottagecore themed wedding is all about recreating this pure and grounded backdrop.
When it comes to décor we want the opposite of fancy and glamorous. The emphasis is on the pure and unadulterated beauty of mother earth and is centred around a natural color palette. Imagine a garden in the countryside with lots of greenery, flowers and a breeze of relaxation and ease. Let your decorations be inspired by the ideology of an era where life is not so complicated. This theme is also one of sustainability and respect for nature, which pairs wonderfully with your desired theme.
