The latest wedding trends
What’s hot in the world of weddings this year?
"With 2022 being the biggest wedding season on record, with an estimated two-and-a-half million weddings set to take place, according to The Wedding Report, here’s all you need to know about the current trends...
"The Pantone colour for 2022 is a shade of blue with violet undertones called Very Peri. When using a bold hue such as this in your wedding palette just add hints of it and pair it with other similar tones. Be sure to keep neutral undertones to your floral palettes, such as white, to ensure they complement the main colour.
"Anemones are one of the most popular flowers requested this season, with ranunculas, lisianthus and garden roses close behind, all of which can be sourced from local flower farms. We’re also seeing filler flowers becoming popular with snapdragons, Queen Anne’s lace and wax flowers.
"Short hemlines are doing the rounds again, with 2022 expecting to see a large increase in these wedding dress designs. The many city-based nuptials taking place seem to be the reason behind their popularity as a little white dress is perfectly suited for a luxury town hall wedding. Big puff sleeves are also popular with brides opting for this modern style.
"With weekend dates being booked up, weekday weddings have seen a surge in popularity. Couples are desperate to stop delaying their plans any further and are opting for midweek celebrations to ensure they can go ahead this year.
"Couples are always looking for new ways to stand out and unusual reception table layouts are being requested to make things more modern. Many planners and stylists created some unique floorplans to keep guests socially distanced during last year’s restrictions and as a result we’re seeing S-shaped tables becoming a popular choice, as well as square and U-shaped layouts."
