"As couples have more flexibility on wedding planning this year, we will see more extravagant trends become popular. Given that restrictions have been lifted many will be keen to hold their nuptials in sunnier climes, including places, such as, Hawaii and the Caribbean. Moreover, many will be keen to make their wedding receptions more lavish than ever with intricate table pieces and dramatic flower displays that we see in Vintage and Boho inspired weddings.
