We’ve got all the inside information straight from the catwalk on everything you need to know about next seasons hot new trends, colours, styles, and bridal vibes.
If anything, the last 18 months has taught us all to think a little more about what we want, and I for one am here for it! It’s always lovely if your family and friends like all the ideas and plans you envisage for your big day, but as I always tell my brides it’s not them wearing the dress. You need to feel beautiful, fabulous and above all comfortable…. and I don’t just mean after the wedding breakfast, although that is important too!
Moving forward into 2022 we will start to see numerous opposing trends, with many post-pandemic brides approaching wedding planning differently. Lockdown has encouraged a more conscious shopper, opting for a ‘less is more’ attitude, allowing for minimal chic to shine. Shorter dresses are also on the rise with mini and midi length gowns becoming more popular.
Regency inspired capped sleeves, empire lines and all over beading will be sought after by ladies looking for a modest yet sophisticated look. Low backs and square necklines will all be on point next year too.
Dreamy bohemian bridal continues to flourish and is becoming ever more popular, with embroidered detailing and fancy florals. Sleeves will be a plenty, whether they be flutter, puffed or capped they are here for the foreseeable and all utterly stunning.
For the daring bride who is all about living in the moment and making the most of her bridal experience with her dream dress we have got you covered too. With statement bows making a comeback, long sparkly capes, feathers, and detachable elements for that extra je ne sais quoi you’ve got choices galore.
Additionally two-piece sets, jumpsuits and multi-wear dresses are some other options for ways in which you can mix it up, be unique and stand out from tradition.
Destination weddings are without a doubt going to become more popular as we get into next year with the world opening back up and that lost travel time, we are all eager to regain. Destination brides can look forward to soft materials, classy cowl necks and sexy low backs. Accessories are becoming more of a standout feature too with more golds, rose golds and coloured jewellery becoming a big hit next year. Whether you want a classic statement pearl tiara, a pastel floral hair vine, a Grecian gold jewellery set or rose gold hair pins for a simpler look, there will be something for everyone.
Whether you have had a wedding day vision for as long as you can remember or perhaps there have been delays meaning you’ve been chomping at the bit to get out into the exciting world of wedding dress shopping, 2022 is bringing some absolute gems for you to start get excited about.
The fun doesn’t stop there either!
Bridesmaids, gone are the days where you must fear the dress that comes with honour of being by the side of someone you love on their big day. Trust me when I say bridesmaid dresses just got good! Mix and match styles are very much the way to go for future seasons, enabling your besties to choose a dress in a style that suits their body shape and personality. Trendy new tactile materials such as silks and satins, velvets and crepes will all offer an opulent and luxury feel and a must for your bridesmaid Pinterest board.
Colour combinations such as champagne & green, blush & pearl and grey & ivory are going to be aesthetically perfect for those fresh spring weddings.
Summer brides will re connect with nature with heuy greens, khakis, creams, and neutrals all being the perfect tonic for a modern and sophisticated feel.
For autumnal weddings we are going to be seeing warm earthy tones which are super flattering and versatile – rust, ochre, auburn, and browns are all perfect for that boho/vintage vibe.
Whatever you choose and however you go about your big day, remember fun and comfort ultimately should be at the top of every bride’s tick list.
