The Netflix series of Bridgerton has inspired many brides to opt for vintage style weddings.
- Wedding Dress Trends for 2022
Wedding dresses with high waists and puffy sleeves and plenty of bows are trending for 2022. Also dresses with lots of volume – full, tiered tulle skirts and corset bodices.
A mix of old and new, with elbow length gloves, birdcage veils that cover part of the face and tiaras. Pearls are popular in engagement rings, accessories and shoe embellishments.
Pantone’s colour for 2022 is a periwinkle blue with violet and red undertones. Soft monochromatic colours for décor and dresses are trending, and for the more dramatic, jewel colours are good.
- Ceremonies and Receptions
Micro weddings are still popular, leaning towards smaller more intimate weddings. Although having been isolated for so long, couples are also going for larger celebrations.
- Weekday Weddings
Weekday weddings have become a popular trend. Since Covid many weddings had to be postponed and as a result now venues are fully booked for weekends.
- Eco-Friendly Weddings
Many venues and wedding suppliers are very aware of the environment and are offering more eco-friendly options in décor, transportation, fashion and stationery.
Food stations and food trucks are a popular trend, with food being cooked on the spot while you wait. It lends itself to a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
- Destination Weddings
Forest weddings in a magical woodland setting, or at a game lodge are still very much on trend. As are destination weddings where the whole venue is booked for the weekend.
- Wedding Cakes
Smaller statement wedding cakes with only one or two tiers, or small cakes individually plated are a popular trend. But for a larger wedding an extravagant multi-layered wedding cake is the way to go.
- However, it’s your wedding. You no longer have to stick to tradition and can be as creative and individual as you like.
