2022 Wedding Trends for Brides

2022 Wedding Trends for Brides

Another year full of weddings is right around the corner. With the pandemic impacting many celebrations the last two years, more weddings are set to take place this year than in many of the previous years. If you are wondering what many brides are doing for their upcoming gatherings, Unique Venues has you covered with the top wedding trends for brides in 2022!

Bridal Subscription Boxes
Today you can purchase a subscription box for just about anything – household goods, meal prepping, pet supplies, clothing, and so much more. Brides deserve some stress relief and can receive just that with bridal subscription boxes. There are many companies ready to send a box of goodies to your doorstep including The Bride Box, The Ring Boxes, and Miss to Mrs. What an awesome present to gift to your favorite bride-to-be or even to yourself!

Statement Headpieces
Remember when you were little, and your mom would make you wear those big headbands or bows when you got dressed up? Well, they’re back but in a much better way. Brides are choosing statement headpieces to complete their wedding day look. These pieces could be a floral crown, ribbons, or a bold metal crown or clip. Will you surprise your guests in 2022 with a statement headpiece?

Bold Lip Color
Move over nude lip colors, 2022 is the year brides want to be bold. Today, you can get a lipstick in almost any shade you can imagine. A popular trend for the upcoming wedding year is a natural makeup look with a bright red lip. Brides love the pop of color the red adds to their wedding day look. Wearing a brighter lip color is also a great way to be bold in a subtle way.

Wedding Day Portraits
A live portrait is a special way to remember your wedding day. Growing in popularity, wedding day painters are being sought out at a higher demand. The artist will come to your wedding and paint one of the most memorable scenes of the night, like your first dance. Your guests will have the opportunity to watch the painting transform as they dance the night away. Brides love this spectacular gift they receive after their wedding ends.

Bouquet Preservation
Most of the time, the bouquets and flowers at a wedding are some of the most memorable decorations, and usually are given away at the reception or spend a few weeks in the bride and groom’s house before they become lifeless. Another way brides are remembering their special day is by sending their bridal bouquet away for preservation. Now, this box of your preserved flowers can serve as a reminder of your wedding day, and you can keep it for many years to come.

Monetary Gifts on the Registry
In 2022, brides and grooms are adding more options for monetary gifts on their wedding registry. Typically, couples can add a big-ticket item to the registry and an amount which allows guests to gift a monetary amount toward. These funds could go towards the couple’s honeymoon, their new house, an experience, a new appliance, and more. Don’t worry, you can still ask for those new towels or a stand-up mixer along with your monetary gifts!
