Getting married in 2022? Congratulations! Your nuptials are officially this year. Now, either the thought of that fills you with excitement, or it fills you with mostly excitement, but also a little dread. Not because you’ve got cold feet (we hope not, anyway), but because you’ve still got lots of planning to do.
Well, from someone who’s planned a wedding before let me tell you— try not to stress. I’m sure I’m not the first person to tell you to ‘enjoy the process’ but really, you only do it once and if anything goes wrong no one will even notice! (Probably.)
If that advice doesn’t help calm your nerves in the slightest, hopefully this guide to 2022’s biggest bridal trends will. And while you certainly don’t have to follow trends on your big day, they may just provide some inspiration for what’s left on your list.
The pandemic has changed bridal trends in ways we couldn’t have foreseen. Plenty of brides have opted for more pared-back looks to match more low-key weddings— think suits and simple shift dresses. On the flip side, some brides have just wanted to wear something spectacular, regardless of how many people, if any, they were able to invite to their big day.
As we’ve all learnt the hard way, nothing is certain— but for now the return to normalcy around weddings look set to continue into 2022. To find out more about what this year brings I got in touch with various experts across the industry, from bridal designers to the founder of Rock My Wedding, and all of them gave me some fascinating insight. If you’re planning a wedding or just want to see some pretty frocks, keep scrolling to see the bridal trends that are coming our way.
