The wedding industry experienced what many industry experts referred to as the “wedding boom” in 2021, and 2022 is expected to be no different. The Knot estimates that 2.6 million couples will get married in 2022, a record-high number. This is greatly affecting the trends that are being predicted to be huge for the year.
If you are planning a 2022 wedding at one of the wedding halls in Omaha, read below to see what trends you should include in your big day!
1. Virtual save-the-dates
2020 and 2021 brides will tell you that virtual save-the-dates have been a lifesaver. With the possibility of having to change your wedding date, sending out virtual invitations can help you to accommodate last minute changes. Plus, they can be a budget-friendly and more sustainable choice compared to traditional wedding invitations.
2. Open air tents
Weddings are predicted to come back full force this year with large guest counts and many people RSVPing yes to their invites. However, people have become less comfortable with this large volume all enclosed in one space. One possible solution to this is to host an outside wedding at one of the wedding halls in Omaha with an open air tent. This will give guests a ceiling but no walls to enclose on them.
3. Long wedding weekends
After many couples waitied and rescheduled their wedding multiple times, they want more than just a day with their friends and family. Therefore, in 2022 expect long wedding weekends to be all the rage! Between the rehearsal dinner, a fun planned activity before the wedding, the actual reception, and a brunch the day after, weddings could be a three or four day affair.
A lot of 2022 weddings are expected to follow a theme! This can be something as unique and fun as 70s themed, or something more traditional like a garden party theme. This isn’t just being seen for wedding receptions either, this is for the whole wedding weekend. The rehearsal dinner can be themed Old Hollywood and the wedding can be something different.
People are ready to have fun! They want to dance the night away and your wedding is the perfect place to do it! When planning your wedding make sure you are creating an upbeat atmosphere and incorporating entertainment elements. Fun party games, a killer DJ, silly props at the photobooth station and a late-night snack served for all your guests who are dancing are just a few ideas to get you started.
6. The return of the wedding cake
While in previous years we have seen a big surge in alternative wedding dessert ideas, 2022 is all about the return of the wedding cake. While you may still see a donut wall here or there, Pinterest has seen search inquiries for gravity-defying and 3D cakes increase 70 and 60 percent, respectively. The bigger the better for your 2022 wedding cake!
