Want to ring in your new year with the latest wedding trends? Your wedding day is one of the most special moments of your life - where everything you desire is just as you imagined. So if weddings bells are in your future, check out what 2022 has in store for all things wedding-related.
Elevated Guest Experiences

Over the last few years, "connection" has been reimagined. And technology has made it possible for us to keep in touch with our loved ones. For couples opting to have in-person weddings, a celebration of "connection," not just for the couple but for every attendee, is on the rise. To make a moment unforgettable, unique entertainment that captures the essence of the couple's love is a trend that garners wow-worthy attention. From comedians to "paint-live" artists, the guest experience will be a top priority. 

Virtual Save-the-Dates

"Necessity is the mother of invention." And while this concept is not new, wedding RSVP softwares' has seen a significant increase of couples utilizing their platforms. With the increasing demand, in 2022, we will see more branding options offered and software "bugs" worked through.

 Expect to receive more virtual save-the-dates in 2022. These are convenient for three main reasons. 1. You know for a fact that your guests have received the save-the-date (no more lost mail!). 2. You get to communicate directly with those you love. 3. You get a quick or almost immediate response (instead of waiting for folks to mail back their response!). And here's a bonus perk: You save both time and money in such a fun, meaningful way.

Bye-Bye Gowns

Brides have long dreamed of the perfect dress they would wear on their big day. However, in 2022 expect to see a variety of unique wedding day looks. Some have ditched the traditional bridal gown altogether, opting for pantsuits, jumpsuits, maxi dresses, and more.

Micro Weddings

Intimate is in, and brides and grooms across the globe have recreated the meaning of a fairytale wedding. For some, that could include 500 guests. Others prefer to keep their weddings quaint, simple, meaningful, and very personal. If your guest list is smaller, check out this intimate option. Destinations are increasing in popularity, with a guest list below 100 in size.

Multi-Day / Weekend Weddings

Who said the party was supposed to last for just one day? Weddings (especially with smaller groups) look more and more like a weekend or week getaway. 

Instead of the traditional ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, expect to see more events added to the wedding itinerary. In a week, this can include welcome parties, bachelorette/bachelor parties, multiple ceremonies (especially if both partners are of different cultures), and unique guest experiences to help celebrate the special couple.
