Whether you like being on trend, or thinking outside the box, here are some wedding ideas we will see over the next year.
Green machine: Looks like shades of green will be popular over the next year, in invitations, décor, bridesmaid dresses and more. The Pantone colour of 2022 is Very Peri (basically, periwinkle), but we aren’t sure if that will take off when it comes to bridal.
Close encounters: Weddings will continue to include a smaller guest list, but this won’t affect the luxury of weddings. In fact, smaller guest lists leave budget for more extravagant reception details.
Weekday weddings: With many couples’ having to postpone, we will likely see more weddings happening during the week to compensate for all the postponements during lockdowns. This will also include events like mid-week, evening wedding showers.
Open air tents: Outdoor weddings are less of a risk when it comes to potential wedding restrictions, so open-air tents (tents without any walls) will most likely see a gain in popularity. It leaves guests with the safety of being outdoors, without being rained on. (Be sure to read our Outdoor Wedding Guide.)
Personal-sized servings: With health and safety at top of mind, individual servings will stick around when it comes to food. Think mini charcuterie boards, boxed meals and flights of appetizers versus passed appetizers.
Keeping things local: Couples are aware of struggling businesses in their cities, so they may look to “mom and pop shops” for food, drink, favours, etc. Supporting businesses you know and love has become more important than ever.
