After a year full of unpredictability and re-scheduled weddings, celebrations in 2022 are here to make a statement. This year’s couples will steer away from tradition and instead prioritize unique details. From bold colors to epic fashion, here are just a few show-stopping wedding trends we are looking forward to seeing in 2022.  

1. Bold, Rainbow Color Palettes 

Goodbye neutrals, hello vibrant color palettes. We’ve seen neutral colors take center stage year over year, but that won’t be the case in 2022. This year’s trending colors are filled with bold hues that symbolize bright, new beginnings. 

2. Customized Neon Sign Decor 

Color palettes won’t be the only thing lighting up the new year. Couples will be brightening up 2022 by adding customized neon signs in their ceremony and reception spaces. The best part about this bold wedding decor element is that it doubles as a keepsake. These signs ll last long beyond your wedding day.

3. Orchids Are The Way To Go 

Orchids represent elegance, romance, and are a true celebration of rare love. With unique colors and structure, including this flower in any element of your wedding decor or bouquet is sure to wow your guests. 

4. Virtual Save-the-dates 

You only have one chance to make a first impression. That’s why save-the-dates are so important. They set the stage for your big day and get guests excited for what’s to come. In 2022 we see paperless save-the-dates become increasingly popular to save money and time. 

5. Colorful Wedding Day Attire 

Bright and bold are two words we’ve used to describe everything to expect in 2022. And wedding day attire is no exception. Want to rock a pink suit? Do it! Dreaming of a purple wedding dress? We’re in full support. From colorful suites to non-white wedding gowns, we expect to see it all in the new year.

6. Short Dresses 

Late last year short wedding dresses hit the wedding scene and we don’t see this wedding trend going away anytime soon. With micro-weddings and elopement-styled celebrations staying popular in 2022, short wedding gowns will continue to give floor-length gowns a run for their money. The best part of rocking shorter wedding dresses is that it allows other elements to shine like your accessories, shoes, and veils. 

7. More Unique Hair Accessories

Natural, up-do, braids—there are many choices when it comes to your wedding day hairstyle. But in 2022, we see hair accessories taking priority over hairstyles. Keep your eye out for hair accessories that are sure to add personality and capture attention. So get ready to leave the bridal crowns and hairpins from 2021 behind. Instead trying out new wedding trends like this pearl beaded hairstyle. 

8. Goodbye Wedding Gowns, Hello Jumpsuits 

Comfort or style? With wedding jumpsuits you can have both. While wearing a traditional white gown may still be a favorite of many, we’ve seen more soon-to-be newlyweds choosing alternatives like jumpsuits and pantsuits. This is the year for unconventional couples to shine! 

9. Veils, Trains, and Capes—Oh My! 

Speaking of veils, they’re officially back! Wedding veils, tains, and capes are a timeless bridal accessory. With a variety of different lengths and styles, adding a veil can completely transform your wedding look. You can’t go wrong with this classic wedding hair accessory—its 2022 come back is sure to prove it.

10. Destination Celebrations 

People are ready to travel and that’ll be reflected in weddings throughout the year. In 2022, more couples will be looking to ditch tradition and exchange “I do’s” in an adventurous way. This is especially true when it comes to their wedding location. And we can’t think of a more romantic way to tie the knot than with a destination wedding
