2022 Wedding Trends
It is 2022 which means new year, new wedding trends. As you plan for your wedding keep in mind what 2022 could be bringing with it this year. With so much potential change on the horizon, stay on the cutting edge of keeping your wedding up to date. Here is what we are predicting will be “in “ in 2022.
Open Air Venues
Health and safety have been in the forefront of every wedding planner’s mind for the past couple of years. Indoor ceremonies have been a point of anxiety for many couples and their guests. Couples and guests want to have an intimate feeling at their wedding. They do not want the constant reminder of the pandemic. Weddings are a social experience. It has been difficult to make that happen during the pandemic.
The solution has been to offer more outdoor weddings and receptions. This has helped others feel more comfortable. It has also opened up new opportunities in more unique venues. With the day by day nature that the pandemic has come to, the trend of open air venues will still be a major trend in 2022.
Big Space, Big Guest List
With these large outdoor venues, it makes it even more possible to have a larger guest list. Over the past couple of years, couples have opted for a more intimate ceremony. The reasoning of less people, less exposure is still a sound idea. But with the increase in vaccines and boosters, people are ready to attend weddings again. The trend we are expecting in 2022 is for more guests to RSVP “yes” to your wedding! This will be great for couples who have felt like they have to cut back their guest lists because of the past few years.
That being said, it would still be a good idea to make sure you are offering up a safe environment. Not everyone will be on the same page about health and safety. It would be a good idea to consider making your wedding a welcoming space for all guests. The big trend of 2022 should be “have fun and be safe”.
Unique Wedding Dates
The pandemic has done a real number on wedding bookings. So many weddings were postponed or outright cancelled in 2020 and 2021. Many weddings that were intended to be happening a couple of years ago have been pushed to 2022. With that in mind, there will be a lot of venues booked solid in bigger wedding months. Two years of weddings are about to get crammed into a single year. Couples are having to get creative with the dates of their weddings. Be ready to see some unique anniversaries in the years to come!
Adding Virtual/Digital Options
One thing that can be said about what 2020 and 2021 brought us was the increased use of technology. It was a great way to make sure everyone could be included. Virtual and digital options became the new normal. Digital save-the-dates and invitations are useful to get the most up-to-date guest count. Streaming weddings has made it even easier to include everyone on your special day. In 2022, even though we are hoping to be more in person again, technology will still be the trend. These options have changed the face of weddings. They will continue to make weddings more accessible and less stressful.
