After a tough 21 months of restrictions and postponement of weddings, every newly engaged couple is looking forward to 2022 and hoping they will manage to enjoy the wedding of their dreams. To help fill you with inspiration and excitement for your big day, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor has compiled a list of the top 10 biggest trends that you can expect to see in 2022…
1. Sequel Weddings
First and foremost, it’s important to acknowledge the amount of sequel weddings that we should all be expecting for 2022. Whether your wedding was cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19, many couples are opting for wedding part 2 where they celebrate their weddings the way the originally intended before lockdown. Expect packed dance floors, big parties and photos filled with lots of friends and family members.
2. Intimate Weddings
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many couples have actually warmed to the idea of small, intimate weddings. We can expect to join married couples-to-be on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube via live streams.
3. Rented Wedding Dresses
Rented wedding dresses are on the rise and this trend will not be leaving us anytime soon! Renting your wedding outfit not only gives you the chance to wear a designer dress that you may not be able to afford to purchase, but it also gives you the opportunity to plan a range of wedding outfits for your celebrations too! With the average bride spending £1,313 on her wedding dress, it’s no wonder so many brides are opting for rentals in 2022.
4. Tee-total Weddings
Due to the baby boom during lockdown, many couples are choosing to opt for tee-total wedding receptions. There are so many exciting drink options that you could consider which are alcohol free included tasty 0% beers and fruity cocktails- coffee bars are on the rise too!
5. Two-Piece Wedding Dresses
There are so many stunning two-piece wedding dresses hitting the high street and this is definitely a trend that will be big across 2022. Elegant and modern, the two-piece dresses are a comfortable choice for brides-to-be and their re-wearability means you can enjoy them for more than one day!
6. DIY Décor
Another trend that will be popular for 2022 due to lockdown restrictions is DIY Décor! Many people took it upon themselves to develop a new hobby to keep themselves occupied during furlough and this included a rise in at-home arts and crafts! From centrepieces to flower displays, we can expect to see a lot of couples creating their own décor for their wedding celebrations.
7. Wedding Crèches
From the newlyweds to the guests, we can expect to see a lot of children attending weddings in 2022, and with that comes keeping them entertained throughout the day. Wedding creches are predicted to boom in the new year which ensures guests will not need to drop out of attendance due to childcare.
From fur shawls and blazers to white leather jackets, outerwear looks set to stay for 2022 weddings!
9 Multisensory Celebrations
In 2022, couples are looking to give their guests the ultimate wedding experience including providing multisensory elements. From scented stationery to unusual menu ingredients, there are many ways you can make your wedding a multisensory experience.
10. Vegan Food
With vegetarian and vegan diets on the rise, it’s no wonder more couples are opting for more environmentally conscious menus for their wedding celebrations. Expect creative healthy dishes and vegan drink options too.
