Wedding Trends | Wedding Trends To Look Out For In 2022

Each year new fabulous wedding trends emerge in the wedding industry. With the change of scenery in events since the pandemic, couples are opting for more intimate and fun celebrations with designs that reflect them as a couple. We wanted to highlight our favorite design trends and what you can expect to see more of at weddings this year with these 2022 wedding trend predictions.


2022 will be the year of color. Think pops of bright and bold color rather than a neutral only palette. In this new wedding trend, we will see the utilization of color outside the traditional wedding palette. As timeless as neutral colors are, couples are more commonly incorporating untraditional wedding color palettes into their wedding design for a bright and bold statement. Consider adding a splash of yellow to your design or shades of purple to brighten things up.

Creative Food

In 2021 we saw the increasing need and popularity of individual servings to help keep our guests safe. As designers, planners and caterers continue to strive for guest safety, we predict this trend will continue in popularity.  Charcuterie boards will be elevated and personalized with individual servings. Passed hors d'oeuvres will be customized and include unique spins on the traditional, think mini and tasting flights. Food placement will be creative and encourage the movement of guests for social distancing.

Alternative Florals

The last few years have brought some unique floral trends to the wedding industry and we are excited to see these trends continue to blossom! With a global shortage of fresh flowers from the wedding boom and demand at an all-time high, it is time to embrace these unique floral trends. As wedding budgets are adapted and designers' creativity is put to the test, there will be a surge in the usage of dried florals in 2022.  Other alternative floral wedding trends that we have loved seeing arise are the usage of dried florals and hand-painted florals.

Destination Weddings

As guest lists remain small and weddings remain intimate there will continue to be a rise in popularity for destination weddings. Couples are enjoying the ability to celebrate with smaller social circles while still allowing for their dream wedding. There will be an increased attentiveness to the details and guest list as couples opt for intimate celebrations in their favorite nearby towns. Think romantic getaway just a few hours away, without the hassle of customs. Destination weddings are becoming a popular way to celebrate marriage while enjoying a vacation with those closest to you.

Statement Lighting

2022 will be the rise of creative lighting solutions. Unique statement lighting designs will be incorporated throughout dance floors and installations. This new wedding trend is perfect for an indoor or outdoor wedding and will leave guests in awe. One of our favorite ways of incorporating statement lighting is to include an interactive or textured element like this marble textured dance floor!

Unique wedding lighting

With these 2022 wedding trends increasing in popularity there is no need for you to try and do it all yourself. Our team thrives on thinking outside the box and creating unique and beautiful weddings. We enjoy taking inspiration from interior design concepts and applying them to your wedding design so that it is a true reflection of your style.
