Planning to say ‘I Do’ next year? It can take up to 12 months to plan a wedding – especially if you want to make the day entirely personal to you and your loved one. And, finding the right theme is the best way to kick this off. In 2022, wedding trends are changing and sometimes provide the perfect inspiration for your celebration. In this blog, we’ll look at 4 trends we’re loving and inspire you if you want to recreate it in a marquee – of course!

Bridgerton-Inspired Events

The UK produced programmes, including the nation’s most loved Bridgerton, drew in 8.2 million viewers. People fell for the love affair between Daphne and Simon, swooning over the Regency clothing, quintessentially British decor and beauty of traditional love. Out of this came Regency Blue – the hottest new pigment to enter the wedding scene. Whether you’re slipping on silk gloves to compliment your wedding dress, opting for wisteria as your wedding flower or using vintage crockery, this wedding theme has a unique elegance and charm to it. And, one that is easily dressed into old English countryside locations where marquees offer a non-intrusive or destructive solution.

Sequel Weddings

The 2021/22 lockdown restrictions have continued to make it challenging for couples to have the big days they’ve always dreamt about. Instead, the rise of the sequel wedding has allowed them to legally get married while backdating their celebrations to a more suitable time. Some chose to host micro weddings in line with guest restrictions before hosting a larger-scale reception on their first anniversary. Hosting in your garden or owned land in a marquee gives you the ultimate freedom here – making marquees the ideal location too!

Rented Wedding Outfits

Reducing waste and keeping the budget to a minimum, more and more brides are opting for rented wedding outfits. Companies such as Hurr Collective and By Rotation emerged from the market with designer dresses that may have seemed out of reach beforehand but now can be rented for much less. Equally, choosing to rent means that expensive outfits don’t just get worn once, you have more flexibility with the outfit of choice and you don’t need to wait on made-to-order lead times.

Alcohol-Free Weddings

Many couples are choosing to eliminate alcohol from their big days, instead of opting for alcohol-free solutions. Wellness has become such a huge trend in health at the moment, this seems to have an impact on our choices. As has the rise in people choosing to get married while pregnant or when caring for very small children. Mixing up unique cocktails or opting for Nosecco means you don’t have to leave out the celebrations – just switch them up slightly!

Summary

In summary, there’s no denying that weddings are becoming increasingly popular. The growth in popularity is due to the fact that many couples are planning smaller, intimate events that allow them to celebrate their love without worrying about being bombarded by guests and having to organise a large scale event. Couples are also looking to cut down on costs and find ways to do so.
