Cottage-chic weddings

One of the wedding trends we’re looking forward to seeing in 2022 is the growing “cottage-chic” look. Picture slender vines, vibrant wildflowers, wispy wheat stalks, and wood chairs and tables paired with lace and romantic lighting. Talk about a fairytale romantic style!

Sequel weddings

On the rise among wedding trends is the “sequel wedding,” which we’re helping many couples plan in 2022. These are second weddings or celebrations after a smaller elopement or micro wedding. Couples whose initial wedding plans were impacted by COVID are opting to book an event to celebrate with their loved ones. We can’t wait to be a part of these couples’ big days at long last!

A nod to nostalgia

Love a good thrift find or an antique piece that has meaning to you and your family? This 2022 wedding trend is just the one for you! We expect to see lots of décor elements inspired by thrift-store finds and vintage antiques at our upcoming weddings.

Think stacked novels from centuries past, beautiful glass antique décor elements, and vintage cutlery for cake cutting. Half the fun will be searching for these treasures for your special day and wondering what the story is behind these period pieces!

Nontraditional weddings

If we’ve learned anything in the last year couple years, it’s that we don’t have to follow tradition! As with the elopements, micro weddings, virtual weddings, and other wedding trends we’ve seen through 2021, we expect traditions to shift in 2022. Think nontraditional wedding parties that include grandparents in more esteemed roles such as flower girl or ring bearer, for example.

As another example, many couples are forgoing a traditional cake cutting and keeping their party going with the cake being served while everyone is dancing. Others are cutting out cake entirely and serving a specialty dessert! This break from tradition sure is sweet, and one we’re excited to see more of in the year to come!

More floral and decor

More couples are including the floral and décor elements they have dreamed about on their Pinterest boards, even if it means cutting back in other areas. This is in part a reaction to the shift in priorities caused by COVID as couples realize just important their wedding day is to them and their families. This is also a visual world, and the floral and décor is where a wedding’s style is at!

We expect to see unique wedding arches in various shapes and styles, and more focus on enhanced elements such as upgraded barware and serving ware. We don’t expect to see metallics going anywhere anytime soon, either. Bring on your most creative, Insta-worthy design requests!
