The Wedding Boom And Trends For 2022 & 2023

It seems that the coronavirus pandemic is finally coming to an end worldwide. With that said, you can expect that there will be more and more events to attend, and that includes weddings. Will you also organize your wedding in 2022 or 2023?

If yes, then you might want to stick until the end and see what trends will shape your dream event during the following months. Take notes and start building your dream wedding right now.

The Wedding Boom

According to a survey by The Knot, some 2.6 million weddings will take place this year, meaning more people will get married in the US than in any other year since 1984. This is happening due to all the cancellations and postponements that inevitably took place during 2020 and 2021.

Basically, you might want to send out those invitations fast because there are loads of other couples just waiting to get married these two years. And to avoid any unpleasant situations due to possible cancellations or postponing, we recommend you to get insurance for your wedding day.

Wedding Trends That Are In

Now let’s look at the trends you should follow for your big day.

Themed Parties

Yes, themed parties are back in action and people love them more than ever. Choose your decor, bride’s dress, groom’s suit, and overall setting style to go with a theme that fits your personality.

It can be a gala, an Old Hollywood-themed party, a disco night, and whatever else you deem fit for your big day. You name it, you can make it happen this year because themed parties represent the most sought-after wedding trend.

Virtual Save the Date Cards

Some people might argue that classical save the date cards are here to stay forever. And, in a weird way, we tend to agree. They can be kept as a memorabilia item long after the wedding passes. However, you also have to be realistic.

We are only a few years away until we pass the first quarter of the 21st century. People nowadays want everything instantly. They don’t want to take the time to travel or wait for stuff.

With that said, a virtual save the date card will save both you and your guests a lot of time. Remember what we said about getting those guests before other couples? Yeah.

Specialty Bars

The world used to be simpler, but we now have multiple tastes when it comes to food and drinks in particular. Some people prefer scotch, others prefer gin, a few prefer vodka, and yet another group from your guest list will definitely prefer cocktails.

With that in mind, it’s a good idea to manage multiple bars at the wedding venue to serve each type of drinker. You wouldn’t want anyone feeling left out or underserved, so do your research to find out what drinks everyone loves.

Wedding Trends That Are Out

Sadly, while you might miss some of these trends from the olden days, they are no longer trendy.

Multiple Toasts at the Reception

People nowadays just prefer to drink and dance. Long-winded toasts can take the charm out of the wedding, so keep it short.

Muted Color Schemes

Sure, this was fancy back in the day, but couples and guests nowadays want vibrant colors. They want something instagrammable.

Overly Packed Welcome Bags

Keep it stupid simple. Have you seen how minimalist marketing works wonders today? The same goes for the packaging. Every type of packaging, actually. Keep it simple.

The Bottom Line

Wedding trends keep changing with seemingly every passing year. What’s most important to remember is the fact that 2022 and 2023 respectively will see a major boom. You need to keep things simple, vibrant, and easily accessible for everyone.

Combine digital with organic and you’ll get a party that everyone will remember – especially you, the bride, and the groom. Best of luck in organizing your special day!
