Lookout: wedding boom of 2022! This year is about to set a record 40-year-high for weddings in the US, with 2022 being set to have over 2.6 million weddings.
The wedding boom is here and our couples are ready to celebrate their special days in style! Here are some trends we're seeing- and loving!
Hanging florals are quickly becoming a favorite! We are increasingly seeing large floral installations suspended from the ceiling above the dance floor or tables.
Couples are putting the fun back in weddings and coming up with amazing concepts for their weddings. Welcome parties and rehearsal dinners are all about fun and people are even branching out with themes for bridal brunches, engagement parties, and even their actual wedding day. Themes such as retro disco, boho, or winter wonderland are just a few ways couples are choosing to express their personalities!
Wedding Weekends/Multi-Day Events
We are seeing a trend toward couples wanting to spread their event over multiple days over the weekend. People are expanding the event beyond the ceremony and reception, with different kinds of events spread over multiple days.
With events such as themed welcome parties, day activities, day-after brunches, and more, couples are expanding the scope of what a wedding is. Couples are extending hospitality and creating an experience for their guests.
Cake is Back
While we've loved fun ways of doing dessert, with donut walls, cupcake tiers, and macaroons, we're seeing love for the classic, over-the-top cakes trending again. Couples are coming up with gorgeous and unique ways to put their own twist on a class-tiered cake.
Open Air Tents
What we have been seeing becoming increasingly popular are our open-air tents! Perhaps the pandemic pushed us to be more comfortable crowding together in open-air environments, but nevertheless, we are seeing tents like the sailcloth tent trending!
Big and Bold is Back
Just as the words "wedding boom" suggest, big weddings are coming back! "Micro weddings" are becoming a thing of the past, and people are ready to celebrate with all their friends and family again. We are seeing guest counts increase, couples are ready to go big!
As with going big, couples are going bold! We are seeing less traditional ways of doing things, from decor to colors to the day. Couples want a dazzling experience- we're seeing big statement floral installations and big and over-the-top design elements.
