As the world recovers from the pandemic and weddings with guests and honeymoons are allowed again, there is a large influx of people tying the knot this year. It’s only March and we’ve already seen some trends come and go, so if your big day is coming up and you want to make sure you have your finger on the wedding culture pulse, read on to find out the biggest and best wedding trends of 2022 so far.
1. Intimate weddings
If the pandemic has taught us anything about weddings, it’s that intimate ceremonies with a few special people can be just as emotional as big ones. More and more people are opting for this after seeing the benefits of smaller weddings these past two years – it costs less, there’s less planning involved, and it can be anywhere you choose without worrying about space.
2. Destination weddings
After travel was banned for so long, itching the travelling scratch with your big day is proving very trendy this year. You can really get your money’s worth out of a wedding this way, by spending your days in the run-up by the pool, relaxing and getting the perfect tan. The most common wedding destinations include Greece, Spain and Gibraltar, and with some great wedding packages available, it’s a lot simpler to organise than it may seem.
3. Two-piece wedding dresses
Sometimes known as bridal separates, this refers to a wedding style that has a separate top half and bottom half. Some people opt for this because it is more comfortable and because of the benefit of choice. It makes transitioning into your evening outfit a lot easier, as you can simply change one part of it while keeping the other half the same.
4. Bright colour palettes
White weddings are truly out. The trendiest colour palettes this year have been bright and beautiful, with shades of red, blue, and orange being the most popular. If you want your wedding to make a bold statement, you could opt for tropical flowers, a vibrantly iced cake, or have your bridesmaids in different colours all matching your theme.
