At the end of 2021, life returned to normality, with weddings and other major events regaining their old grandeur of colourful extravagance, but with a more careful approach. Couples and their families are striving to make weddings even more meaningful than ever before as a result of the pandemic.
If you’re planning a wedding in 2022, here’s the dirt on the trendiest wedding trends to help you arrange the ideal event.
Pay Attention to The Smallest Things
Couples and families are choosing smaller, more private celebrations where they may spend more money on a higher-quality event. The event will be more unforgettable for you and your loved ones if you pay attention to the smallest of details by personalizing and customizing each element. The recent wedding of Bollywood celebrities Ranbeer and Alia is the ideal illustration of an intimate ceremony.
Wedding in The Sunlight
Nighttime weddings have become the things of the past. Take a hint from superstars such as Katrina Kaif and Rajkumar Rao, among others, and organize a wedding during the day. Daytime weddings are gaining popularity due to their photo-worthy golden hour moments, energizing atmosphere, and design options.
Limited Guest List
We are not yet prepared to return to the era of extravagant weddings with guest lists in the hundreds. Even if guest limitations have been relaxed in the majority of locations, couples and families continue to seek the convenience and stress-free pleasure of smaller gatherings with just their closest loved ones. Not only can exclusive, handpicked guest lists make events seem more personal and memorable, but they also free up funds for the venue, attire, entertainment, or whatever else you wish.
Virtual is the Key
Virtual save-the-dates are here to stay since they provide a great deal of variety in terms of design and originality, as well as the ease of contacting visitors across the world.
Wedding Entertainment is Reinvented
Entertainment is rapidly becoming an integral aspect of festivities, and it is no longer restricted to music and dance acts alone. After two tumultuous years, couples want to express their delight and excitement with their loved ones, let free, and have fun at all of their festivities, not just the Sangeet night. Couples are embracing unique concept photobooths, disco nights, rain dance, stand-up comedy, live performers immersed in the audience, circus performances, magic shows, dance floors that flow from the stage to the beach, and so much more to bring a dose of excitement and uniqueness to every event.
Time to Pack your Bags
The easing of travel restrictions in most countries has been great news for people all over the world, but especially for couples, as they are now able to plan their dream celebration or honeymoon at the locations of their choosing. This comes after months of people holding their weddings and honeymoons at their homes and staying at home. Do bear in mind the travel rules and health warnings of the areas you visit and do not forget to take any necessary health measures to take part in the celebrations in a risk-free manner.
Everyone appreciates the attractiveness of nature, trees, and green surroundings. Therefore, why not celebrate them at weddings? This year would be the year for marriages in the wilderness. Cooling breezes, the warmth of the sun, and the invigorating atmosphere of green plants, and coloured flowers. What a marvel to see! Destination weddings will generate genuinely remarkable memories for the couple and their loved ones by combining the customary wedding experience with the novelty and allure of an exotic locale.
Every Food has Story to Tell
The food is the highlight of every Indian wedding how grand or small it is. The menu is one of the most significant and memorable aspects of a wedding reception, and an increasing number of couples are choosing odd foods and unique selections. Dishes or themes have unique meaning to your love story, such as your first date to the first kiss for that matter.
Old Vintage Charm in Engagement Rings
Vintage-inspired engagement rings are popular due to their old-world allure, subtle romanticism, and of course their bold appearance. Classic diamond cuts, art deco influence, elegant filigree, and colourful stones are now popular. Katrina Kaif’s sapphire and diamond ring from Tiffany is reminiscent of Princess Diana’s classic ring from the 1980s.
Sari Not Sorry
Lehengas have long been a popular choice for brides, owing to Indian celebrity weddings when fans anxiously awaited the bride to unveil her lehenga. However, most notable females in the Indian film industry have lately chosen the sari for the most important day of their lives, ranging from Dia Mirza to Yami Gautam, Partlekha to Mouni Roy, or the nation’s heartbeat, Alia Bhatt. Saris are making a big splash on the wedding scene.
The No-Makeup, Makeup look
Bold, bright cosmetic features will take a back seat in 2022, as predicted at the start of 2021. This is also true in terms of wedding makeup. Alia Bhatt’s bridal style is the most recent example of the no makeup, makeup look. A great foundation, shimmering eyelids, mascara, and peachy nude lipstick are all that are required to make a woman seem elegant and lovely on her wedding day.
