2022 is going to be a year of weddings. There are predictions that there will be a record-high number of weddings this year – which means there are quite a bit of people wondering what the trends will be for the year or are looking for inspiration for their wedding.

Due to the growth of social media, wedding styles can quickly feel overused, unoriginal, and even worse, dated. Here are the wedding trends to consider and watch for in 2022!

‘70s

The ‘70s have made a big comeback in the fashion world and now it is time for the ‘70s to make a comeback at weddings. Up-and-coming relevant motifs are ribbed textures (think corduroy bell-bottoms) and pressed florals. Expect to see this on candles, rentals, or paper details, the fun texture adds all the warmth, while still leaning on the side of romance. Pressed florals are making a comeback! They have been seen them on cakes, invites, and table numbers, but using them on place cards or in a seating display will be a hit. Go full ‘70s and have a disco-themed after-party!

Interactive Entertainment

Entertainment has always been a major part of a wedding, but recently over-the-top musical elements are a top ask right now. Couples are now “segmenting” their event’s performances and choosing specific artists for each part of their event – for example, a cello for the ceremony, a violinist for the cocktails and a brass band for dinner.

Intimacy

With the state of our world since 2020 micro-sized weddings were really the only option available and the micro wedding has now shifted into a trend that many couples are embracing. Having the intimacy of a small wedding allows you to spend quality time at your wedding with your closest family and friends.

Destination

Destination weddings are going to be one of the biggest wedding trends we will see. For almost two years destination weddings have been put on the back burner but with the increased amount of vaccinations destination weddings look like they will be put back on the table. Don’t be surprised to receive an invitation or two for a wedding in Mexico.

 

Long Weekend Weddings

You will see an increase in long weekend weddings. Many people are interested in having events that span out over three or four days. From having a large welcome party, a rehearsal dinner, and something active to do during the day, whether it’s a red robin tennis tournament or a group hike/walk/run, all sprinkled into the long wedding weekend.

It will be fun to see what other trends pop up during this jam-packed year of weddings!
