After several years of having to tone things down, many of today’s brides and grooms are taking their wedding planning up a notch with some big, bold moves. Some of 2022’s hottest wedding trends are all about celebrating the day in a unique and special way.
Here’s a look at a few of the exciting wedding trends you’ll be seeing this year.
1. Themed Parties
A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and many couples are taking the opportunity to incorporate unique party themes. Whether it’s turning your engagement party into an “I Do BBQ,” or something bolder, there are plenty of ways to have fun with this trend.
Consider throwing a rehearsal dinner or welcome party with a fun carnival vibe, turning your reception into a 70’s disco party, or planning your entire day around the theme that resonates most with you.
2. Specialty Bars
Multiple bars and specialty bars were trending before COVID hit, and now they’re making a comeback. This year, many couples are going beyond the signature drink and offering full-fledged bourbon tastings, tequila bars, or a variety of local craft beers on tap. DIY mimosa and Bellini bars are also trending, as are DIY hot chocolate bars for those who prefer a decadent alcohol-free option.
3. Weekday Weddings
Many weddings were canceled over the past few years and couples are continuing to get engaged. This makes it harder than ever to book those coveted weekend wedding days. Rather than pushing their nuptials out another year, many couples are opting for off-day events.
Not only can this flexibility help you secure the venue of your dreams, but it may also make it easier to book your preferred caterer, DJ, photographer, and hair and makeup stylist.
4. Bold Colors
Muted tones have been a top wedding trend for the past few years, but now, big, bold colors are all the rage. Whether you want to embrace a full vibrant color palette or surprise your guests with unexpected pops of color, there are many ways to embrace this trend on your wedding day.
Try brightening up your bouquet or dressing your bridesmaids in bright colors. You could also opt for multi-colored centerpieces, colorful florals, or a brightly colored dessert table.
5. Unique Entertainment
In 2022, we’re seeing a lot of couples going big with their entertainment. From acrobatic performers to dueling pianos, bringing in specialty vendors is an excellent way to make sure your wedding day is truly unforgettable.
Don’t want to go too far over the top? Consider hiring a caricature artist to create images of your guests, a comedian to entertain during dinner, or have your favorite celebrity impersonators show up for a photo opp.
