What are the wedding trends for 2022?
Will you say the fateful ‘Yes, I do’ in 2022? Then this is the article for you! Between dresses to choose from, locations to define and a thousand other decisions to make, it is very easy to get confused. Knowing the 2022 wedding trends might help you define the style you prefer for your big day.
The wedding mood in 2022
This year, weddings have almost completely returned to normal. Couples who decide to get married or who have postponed their wedding due to Covid, generally move away from the idea of an overly formal, grand ceremony and prefer a more relaxed, fun-filled wedding. Outdoor ceremonies in summer are the preferred choice of many couples, who opt for a typical farmhouse or a romantic garden surrounded by greenery for their wedding reception.
When it comes to wedding decorations and the style of the event, 2022 brides and grooms put tradition aside and make decisions more based on their personal tastes. Customization is the key word for the style of 2022 weddings.
From the stationary to the wedding menu, from the mise en place to the tableau de mariage, to the music and entertainment: every aspect of the wedding reflects the couple’s tastes and fully expresses their love.
Destination weddings and weekend weddings on the rise in 2022
The wedding away from home, in a dream location and in the company of loved ones, is increasingly in vogue. Couples-to-be are choosing to turn their wedding into a romantic experience to be lived surrounded by their nearest and dearest. And you don’t need to go too far to organise a destination wedding; our Bel Paese offers countless locations that lend themselves to becoming a perfect setting for a romantic weekend wedding. The most popular locations? Apulia, the Tuscan countryside or the evocative views of the Amalfi Coast.
The most popular floral arrangements
Flowers are the great protagonists of wedding arrangements and decorations. The new style in vogue is called cottagecore and involves the use of lush country-style floral arrangements with wild flowers and delicate light wood decorations that are used to create a romantic English garden atmosphere.
Bridal fashion: 2022 trends for groom and bride
Bridal fashion 2022 sees two extremes in comparison. While on the one hand there is a return to a classic, Victorian style with structured gowns with long lace sleeves and high collars, on the other hand there are brides-to-be who prefer dresses with a softer, less formal style in line with an outdoor ceremony and boho chic.
White continues to be the colour of choice for brides-to-be in 2022, although it is also sometimes combined with nude, beige or pastel shades.
The 2022 bridal fashion trends for grooms also point to a more relaxed style. The more informal style of the groom’s suits are making their way into the hearts of younger guys and those who are planning a wedding with more rustic features, perhaps outdoors or at the beach.
For summer, natural colours such as brown, beige and light grey are preferred to the more traditional colours. While for an evening and more formal wedding, the blue suit remains a great classic.
