16 Ιουνίου 2022
With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, which allow for bigger celebrations, weddings are starting to look more like their pre-Covid counterparts. But what has changed? Well, couples know better how precious time is with family and friends and they want their wedding to be a celebration for them. Couples of 2022 want to create a highly private and fun day, with unique, unexpected elements that will impress the guests and will be etched in their memory after the end of the day. Featuring statement color palettes, careful decoration, bold bridal style and elegant entertainment, the list of the biggest wedding trends of 2022 excites us for the year to come!
1. Garden Weddings
Romantic estate weddings and weddings with enchanting gardens have become extremely popular in the last two years, as couples take advantage of the beauty (and enhanced security!) of beautiful outdoor green spaces. While garden weddings have a greater workload for planning, they give you the opportunity to organize your wedding day in a very special place and have more control over the look and feel of the day.
2. Cake Tables
The specially designed tables for the wedding cake attract more and more attention, through customized rings and special arches for the cake! Whether decorated with fresh flowers, dried foliage, or simply with a modern, minimalist aesthetic, they are great focal points at every wedding table and we look forward to seeing more at the 2022 weddings.
3. Vintage engagement rings
Are you still looking for an engagement ring? In 2022, heirloom rings and designs inspired by vintage elements will be at the top of everyone's wish list as couples become more emotional about the style of their parents' and grandparents' time. With old European cuts and colorful gemstones, vintage engagement rings are timelessly beautiful and we like the idea of connecting old and modern love stories through jewelry.
4. Everyday weddings
With the wedding industry facing a huge build-up created by Covid-related procrastination, this is an emerging trend that we can not ignore! While weddings on weekdays are more difficult for guests, as they have to take time off work, many couples in 2020 and 2021 were happy to reap the benefits, which are cheaper prices and better availability of venues and suppliers. It is true that your wedding on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday may be less convenient for your guests, but this becomes less important if you have a shorter list.
5. Fairytale Lighting
The way you light the indoor or outdoor spaces at your wedding reception shapes the tone and mood of the whole night, so it is not surprising that fairytale lighting has entered our list of the top wedding trends for 2022. Create a dreamy and cinematic atmosphere! Choose from light bulbs to vintage chandelier installations and classic lights.
6. Virtual Save-the-Date
With so many couples having to make changes to their wedding dates in 2020 and 2021, virtual wedding invitations have become commonplace! For us, the romance of real stationery can never be captured on the internet, but we like the idea of virtual storage, followed by a natural invitation. Virtual wedding invitations are ideal for modern couples who love technology, as they can accommodate last-minute changes and, depending on how you create them, can be more environmentally friendly and in your pocket. Just remember to print copies for any visitors who may not have access to the digital versions!
7. Handmade details
From dresses, stationery, cakes, and even decorations such as candles, ribbons, and napkins, we see a huge increase in elegant, hand-painted wedding details. For couples who want to incorporate personalized and artistic elements in their wedding, the hand-painted decorative details create a unique feeling that your guests will surely love!
8. The Little White Dress
Short wedding dresses, otherwise known as the little white dress, were extremely popular in the 1960s, as well as in civil and small weddings over the decades. In 2022, we expect to see bridal hems closer than ever! The best part? Such a dress is so versatile that you can wear it long after the wedding!...
9. Intense, vivid colors
Color palettes in pastel shades have been popular for a few years now, so we are very happy to welcome bold touches of color to the party! With warm, earthy tones, vibrant color palettes, monochrome with striking color sparkles and eccentric combinations that contrast with the colors, they are among our favorite trends in wedding decoration for 2022. Wondering where this trend will lead us in the next 6 months? Well, the color trend forecasts predict that the top colors for Spring and Summer 2022 will be pink-purple Orchid Bloom, vibrant Super Sonic blue, fresh Fair Green, playful Bubblegum pink, vibrant pink Coral Rose and the cool blue Cascade. And the color of the year for 2022, Very Peri, a rich shade of purple, is also a trend.
10. Colorful floral print & embroidered wedding dresses
Nature-inspired embroidery and floral print elements have appeared in some bridal collections in recent years, but this season, floral and fauna appliques and brightly printed flowers are appearing everywhere! From 3D floral applique to mini dresses, dresses decorated with floral embroidery and fabrics with floral prints, there is a version of this trend that suits every bridal aesthetic.
The bows are back (although did they really ever leave?)! We are talking about big, small and all the middle ground. Whether they decorate your wedding dress, or we find them in hair accessories, shoes, decoration or cake tables!
12. Salt & Pepper Diamonds
If you are looking for a truly unique engagement ring, this is the trend for you! Diamonds with salt and pepper are diamonds that have a mixture of many white and black inclusions, natural color marks that give the stone a gray look. Favorite for their unique charm, diamonds with salt and pepper have become very popular with cool couples looking for something different. They are also usually less expensive, making them a great choice for low-budget engaged couples and, as salt and pepper diamonds require less resources than regular diamonds, they are also ideal for eco-conscious couples!
13. Bouquet Maintenance
After all that has been done to create the bridal bouquet, it is no wonder that many brides want to keep it! Preserving the bouquet, a forgotten post-wedding tradition, is set to take off again in 2022. From flower pressing, epoxy resin preservation or wax dipping to custom bridal flowers and paintings, brides are looking for contemporary artists. preserving and presenting their wedding flowers.
14. Modern monochrome
Appearing in everything from stationery to flowers, the minimal monochrome is the most elegant trend of modern wedding decoration that we have seen for a long time! While the monochrome palette is often associated with a subdued "less is more" aesthetic, bold graphic details take it to a new level for 2022.
