Wedding Trends That Will Take Over 2022

The wedding boom is here, but brides-to-be should expect to feel the force of this explosion well into 2022. After a difficult season with no large-scale events, the celebrations are back and with them some trends to make of the wedding an unforgettable day.

One of the features in 2022 wedding trends is to keep the guest experience at their heart and speak to the couple's shared passions.

2022 will be a year of powerful and bold changes when it comes to bridal fashion. The main trend this year is to emphasize sustainable and environmentally friendly designs.

And as we begin to leave another year of uncertainties behind us, we belive that one thing is guaranteed 2022 will be a year full of fun, innovative and exciting looks down the runway and aisle.

Wedding dress

The second look.

While traditional wedding dresses will always remain popular, the idea of ​​a second look will be become even more significant than ever before. There are still a lot of brides that will want to experience the full bridal effect, the second wedding look is becoming more common at weddings. The brides choose a gown for the ceremony and change their look during the reception, this to feel more comfortable and to be able to enjoy the party without worries.

Whether it’s for a second look or your walk down the aisle, bridal suits, separates, and mini dresses aren't going anywhere. This trend allows brides to show more of their personal style and they can have the best of both worlds with a classic ceremony gown and a fun reception look.

Sustainability first

Sustainability will be at the forefront of bridal fashion in this year. Brides are more interested in sustainability than ever before; they look for pieces that are versatile enough to be styled differently, worn repeatedly, and translate to post-wedding life seamlessly. This means that for 2022, we will see more eco-conscious bridal designers take off in a new way collections that are simpler and more wearable.

Traditional with a twist

We expect to see brides mix-and-match traditional gowns with contemporary and fun accessories to accent their looks. Bridal gloves, birdcage veils, and bridal hats will also be seen everywhere in the new year.


Modern Etiquette

In recent years, the industry has also witnessed the emergence of the modern etiquette. For example, more casual wording on invitations, though still formal and guest-driven in essence. There is also been a shift in the normalizing of the use of "wedding party" instead of "bridal party". Terms like "groomsmaid” and "man of honor" have equally become common references in wedding planning language. A more thoughtful modern etiquette is replacing formality and traditional circumstances.

Wedding gifts

Couples in 2022 are making more intentional choices with their wedding registry lists. They’re shopping small instead of at major retailers. They’re finding bespoke and eco-friendly items that suit their lifestyle. And in exchange for a year or more at home, couples want tech products that streamline their lives, they’re enjoying a household full of plants, and they’re upping their culinary skills.

Supporting Local Businesses

Many couples are refining their entire wedding planning process to focus on ways they can promote and support local businesses, they are seeking out vendors who represent their respective communities, orientations and inherent belief systems. The purpose for this is to preserve their culture on what is the most joyful day of their lives; thereby, allowing weddings to be just one avenue for couples to contribute to a brighter tomorrow.

Curated Guest Lists

As a result of the pandemic, couples have felt more freedom about culling the number of attendees. Most of 2022 couples are planning more intimate weddings with 50 or fewer guests, which is allowing them to stretch their budgets in other ways. Smaller weddings—also known as micro weddings—give couples the freedom to spend in more areas, such as flowers and specialty vendors, instead of having an extensive food and beverage bill.

Tossing Traditions

Today's couples are beginning to wonder the "why" behind many wedding traditions, so if you don't want to incorporate an expected element, don't. Many couples are now opting out of wedding day staples such as the bouquet toss, the garter grab, and even the formal reception introductions. Couples are choosing instead to be more guest-focused and making sure their guests are having a good time. Swapping traditions and focusing on the experience will cause folks to look back on your day fondly.

Social Streaming

With the world transitioning into a more digital era, and with wedding sizes reducing, it comes as no surprise that people are choosing to live stream their wedding for friends and families at home. For some, this could be odd, but for many with family overseas or with guests who are unable to attend, it's a great way to ensure everyone is feeling involved in your special day!

One of the things that will never go out of style is music and how important it is to a wedding. Music is one of the most important elements and what better than having one of the best Dj's in Punta Cana. We are 4 times winners of the WeddingWire Couple's Choise Awards.
