1. Bridgerton- Inspired Weddings
First on our list of Top 5 Wedding Trends of 2022, are Bridgerton- Inspired Weddings. Bridgerton has amassed a huge cult following. It is easy to see why especially because of the Regency era aesthetic. Most brides dream of being a princess on their wedding day, which goes hand in hand with Bridgerton. For brides looking to incorporate the Regency style into their wedding, there are many ways to accomplish this. Puffed sleeves, sorbet colors, and floral accessories are all a nod to this era of time.
2. Flavor with Meaning Cakes
Next on the list is Flavor with Meaning Cakes. Wedding cakes are a key part of the wedding, but couples usually choose a flavor without giving it much thought. Now the wedding cake and desserts are becoming more of a focal point. Couples are choosing a cake flavor that reminds them of their first date. Or a flavor that reminds them of where they grew up. Or a special childhood memory. It’s a great way to showcase a special moment or memory as a couple, while also letting your guests be a part of it.
3. Destination Elopements
Next on our list of the Top 5 Wedding Trends of 2022 are Destination Elopements. Because of COVID-19, destination weddings and elopements were brought to a halt. Now that the world is mostly getting back to normal, couples are taking advantage and planning destination elopements. If you’re looking for a location in the US, there are several top locations: Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. Central Park, New York City. Moab, Utah, and Tybee Island, Savannah. Any one of these locations would make for a fantastic backdrop for an elopement just ask any photographer.
4. Bold color schemes
Coming in at number four are bold color schemes and color trends. For the past few years, muted and pastel-filled color palettes have been popular. And naturally, the classic black and white color scheme are still popular. However, this year bold colors are taking over and becoming more popular. The trending color trends for this year are monochromatic color palettes. Also, vibrant colors such as vibrant sonic blue and vivid coral rose. Another popular combination is sea-glass and sage.
5. Micro weddings
And last but not least, on our list of Top 5 Wedding Trends of 2022 are micro weddings. Micro weddings are usually 50 people or less. The theme can be anything from formal to casual. There are several reasons to have a micro wedding. First, cutting down the guest list will considerably cut down the cost. That way the couple can focus their budget on what's most important to them. That could be a destination wedding, a live band, or a sit-down dinner with a beautiful cake and dessert bar. The possibilities are endless. Just because the size of the wedding and ceremony is intimate, doesn’t mean the overall experience has to suffer.
