2022 Wedding Trends To Start Planning Today

As we head into the new year, bridal couples in 2022 are planning every detail of their wedding, from the decor to the ceremony and the reception. Now more than ever, couples want to celebrate their love while keeping true to themselves, and to what sets them apart as uniquely YOU. But with hundreds of thousands of weddings every year, how do you create a wedding that truly represents the bride and groom? Here are my predictions on 2022 wedding trends that you may want to include in your special day. If you’re looking for wedding cake ideas, see our article on wedding cake trends for 2022

Make A Prenuptial Toast
This might not seem like something new, because making toasts at a wedding is pretty standard. But the new trend is to flip the script so there are toasts before the wedding rather than after. And enjoying your signature cocktail or a glass of champagne before the ceremony can be fun and relaxing for everyone. Add a toast before the ceremony to start the festivities!

A Private Affair
Weddings are often hundreds of people – with hundreds of invitations, RSVPs, place settings and menu choices to manage. The happy couple ends up spending most of their time making the rounds to greet everyone, and there was very little time for dancing and enjoying their own wedding. Smaller, more intimate weddings are now an important trend in 2022 that provides a more personal experience for the bridal couple and guests.  

Destination Weddings
People are ready to travel! An additional benefit to smaller weddings is that it’s easier to plan a destination wedding. A wedding for 20 or even 50 in a special, exotic location – such as a South Florida destination wedding – that is private and personal, is the ultimate luxury for both the bridal couple and the guests who celebrate with them. Another benefit to destination weddings is they can require less time to plan – especially if you have an experienced local wedding planner helping you!

Experience Weddings
Anyone who has watched Monsoon Wedding or who followed Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding was stunned by the Indian tradition of multi-day weddings – 3, 5 or even 7 days of wedding parties, ceremonies and receptions! Planning an extended wedding experience can be a lot of fun for everyone involved and an event no one will forget. Multiple day celebrations with smaller, more intimate guest lists are sure to please the bridal couple and their guests! 

Bring Out The Bling
Everyone is ready to celebrate, and in 2022, everyone loves love! Many brides are ready to skip the subtle: they want to bring out the bling! Gold tones are a fresh, surprising color for weddings. Traditionally used as an accent or background color, gold makes a big statement about the star power of the bride and groom! 

Do It Your Way
Unique elements are definitely a hot wedding trend in 2022 – the more unique, the better. If you have something you’ve always dreamed of doing at your wedding but ‘nobody does that’ then go for it. This is the year for you and your partner to get creative. People are ready to celebrate – and will love to celebrate your wedding!
