From big fat Indian weddings to lavish destination soirees and micromonies, things have changed pretty quickly for the Indian wedding industry in the past couple of years. People are now more focused on celebrating their big day with just close friends and family rather than feeding the whole colony and their chachas. And that has also led to a drastic change in wedding decor and planning over the years. So, if you’re getting married this year and looking for wedding trends for 2022, we’ve got you covered.
Ever since the pandemic hit, smaller weddings with close family and friends have become an official thing. And even though things are better now, people are still choosing to have minimonies or micro weddings. This concept allows the couple to celebrate their big day with just their close family and friends without going through the trouble of planning a big wedding. And it also gives the couple a chance to customise not just their wedding list but their whole wedding.
2. Intimate destination weddings
Want to put a spin on your intimate wedding? Club it with a destination and you’ll have your fairytale wedding plans on track. Intimate destination weddings are a big theme and one of the biggest wedding trends for 2022. Because cutting down guest lists is giving couples a chance to splurge on other things like a fancy location.
3. Sunset weddings
Daytime weddings, with the backdrop of the setting sun, are one of the biggest wedding trends for 2022. And even celebrities are opting for daytime weddings because it’s all about the perfect wedding pictures! You can continue the party after sunset and make the most of your day.
4. Glass mandaps
Glass mandaps are all over the ‘gram and are one of the hottest wedding decor trends of this year. They create a more upscale, chic, and modern aesthetic to the otherwise traditional wedding decor. Glass mandaps in different shapes and geometrical structures are going to be big this wedding season.
5. Bright colours
Pastel colours have been a favourite amongst wedding planners, but this year is all about bright, popping colours. Couples are opting for artistic decor in bright colours of reds, oranges, pinks, yellows, and more. From drapes to smaller decor, reds and maroons are now being replaced with more lively shades.
6. Fairytale lighting
Fairy tale lighting has taken centre stage in decor trends this year. Dense fairy tale lighting to wrap around as decor or over the mandap or the seating area is in demand this year. And we’re all in for it because it looks so gorgeous and adds a touch of elegance and romance.
7. Customised favour walls
One of the biggest wedding trends of 2022 is customised favour walls. They have been trendy for a while, but this year, it is getting bigger and better. Because if you can have a customised wedding, why not have a customised wall for your friends and family?
