The biggest wedding trends of 2022

This year, weddings are back! Happy couples are catching up with weddings they had to postpone because of lockdown, and there are some distinct changes in the types of events people are planning. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the biggest wedding trends of 2022. 

Small garden weddings

Why go to all the bother of getting transport to and from your wedding when you could host the event in your own garden? Garden weddings are perfect for smaller gatherings or if you want a relaxed, informal event. If you’ve got enough space for a marquee, then you won’t have to worry too much about the weather.  Holding your wedding party in your own garden – or borrowing someone else’s garden – will save money as well as increase the likelihood the venue will be available on the date you want! 

Weekday weddings

The backlog of weddings postponed because of lockdown means there are more weddings competing for venues at the weekends, and many couples are opting to get married on a weekday.  The main advantages are that most venues are cheaper to hire during the week, and your chosen caterers, DJs and entertainers are more likely to be free too. The obvious disadvantage is that some guests may be unable to attend, but with enough notice, most people will be able to book time off work. 

Entertainment 

Entertainment has always been an integral part of any wedding, and in 2022, wedding entertainment is set to include some more ‘out there’ ideas like drag queens, bouncy castles, axe throwing and circus acts. However, these won’t suit everyone. If you would like to keep everyone of all ages and interests amused with universally loved entertainment, you can’t beat a good wedding magician. No matter how large or small your event, adding even more magic to your wedding will entertain your guests, keep the energy flowing and make it a truly memorable day. 

Bridgerton weddings

Bridgerton has taken the world by storm and is now inspiring Regency-themed weddings as well as wedding dresses with empire-waisted dresses, puffed sleeves and lots of lace. If you’re opting for a Bridgerton-style wedding, why not hold it in a Georgian country house, such as the four-star Sopwell House Hotel just outside St Albans, a perfect Hertfordshire wedding venue.

Hiring your wedding dress

Most brides spend hundreds if not thousands of pounds on a dress they’re only going to wear once before it goes into the loft, whereas grooms can get away with hiring a suit. This year there has been an increase in the popularity of hiring wedding dresses, giving brides the opportunity to wear a dress they normally wouldn’t be able to afford. It’s also a much more sustainable option, so if you want a greener wedding, it’s the obvious choice as the same dress will be worn many times. 

Embracing nature

During the lockdowns, many of us spent more time outside and in the countryside. As a result, people are embracing more natural and earthy colours for their weddings, such as caramels, corals, ivories, mustards and rusts.  People are also opting for natural looks when it comes to decorations, using interesting driftwoods, flowers in terracotta pots, etc. One fabulous venue I’ve performed at is Brook Farm, a rustic setting perfect for happy couples who want a wedding that embraces nature.

So, now you know what the biggest wedding trends of 2022 are it is time to book your entertainment! If you are looking for a 2022 wedding magician for hire, please contact me to discuss your entertainment requirements for your special day!
