Spotlight Formal Wear takes a look at the hottest wedding trends of 2022.

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, USA, Aug. 8, 2022 / — Like every year, the world of weddings offers its share of novelties and trends. Of these, Spotlight Formal Wear looked at the hottest wedding trends of 2022. Here’s what the Omaha-based company is expecting in terms of decor, fashion, entertainment and event planning.

1. Outdoor dinners

The bride and groom tend to favor outdoor spaces for their place of reception, or any activity and moment of tasting.

“There are still a lot of people who aren’t very comfortable with the idea of ​​being with multiple people in a room for hours on end,” Spotlight Formal Wear reveals.

Some of the more popular ways to handle this are:
– A room with large bay windows that open to allow you to see or go outside
– Access to a covered terrace or porch
– A good old fashioned open tent
– Banquets under the stars are also becoming increasingly common and are loved for their vintage, fairytale aesthetic, two themes that Spotlight – Formal Wear also highlights.

2. Vintage atmosphere

Vintage corners are created in the form of a kiosk, a cocktail or cigar bar, a photo booth, a rest area or even a space dedicated to the guestbook. They are equipped with antique furniture and vintage decorative objects whose charm is a major asset that neither the bride nor the groom will be able to resist in 2022.

Other services of the utmost importance in the organization and conduct of the wedding bring back the classics. Renting a classic car is one of the most common ways to make a couples arrival a memorable experience.

3. Fairy tale lighting

Lighting used to be rather secondary in the decoration of a reception hall, but now it is a major concern. Spotlight Formal Wear is seeing an incredible amount of dreamy, unique and romantic lighting for weddings in 2022.

String lights are becoming a big trend for outdoor weddings. The goal is to replicate and enhance the look of the wedding venue with a variety of lighting. They are arranged in a starry sky above the heads of the guests but also around the trees and along the furniture. The idea is also to extend the golden hour, that time of day just before sunset when the light is naturally at its best.

4. Candy Tables

The Omaha bride and groom don’t give up the cake, because it’s the highlight of the banquet. But this year, they prefer to relax the protocol, reduce the size of the wedding cake and opt for more variety rather than having to limit themselves to a single dessert.

To enhance this experience, they use a sweet table full of original flavors and aesthetics, different pastries, assorted cupcakes, donut walls and personalized cookies.

5. Spontaneous photography

This trend is not new. For years, brides and grooms have been interested in telling their story as a couple and their marriage, rather than simply immortalizing it with photos.

A wedding should tell the story of the couple. It should reflect the style, personality and love of the bride and groom, which is the basis of the mood board from which the theme and style of the wedding is developed.

Half of couples currently choose a spontaneous style of wedding photography when hiring the photographer and defining the service. The same goes for videos, which the bride and groom prefer spontaneous and natural, taken discreetly by their professional.

6. Food Trucks

Food trucks are a fun alternative to the traditional wedding dinner. With possible menu choices and various specialties, it is up to each of the guests to choose their own food truck formula. These are often tailored to the wedding theme. It is a more affordable option than the traditional caterer, but that does not detract from the quality of the services offered.

7. Bright colors are back

While in recent years weddings have been dominated by pale, neutral and nude tones, 2022 marks the big comeback of bright and bold colors. Color is a sure way to add joy, excitement and a real sense of celebration to a wedding, whether small or more elaborate.

Vibrant tones can be incorporated in small or large proportions in many elements: invitations and stationery, decoration, flowers and even the attire of the bride and groom.

8. Virtual invitations

Here is another effect of the pandemic listed by Spotlight Formal Wear: the fear of having to change wedding plans. If virtual invitations do not have the elegance of beautiful paper invitations, especially handwritten ones, they have two main advantages:
Their instant delivery: They allow you to receive immediate feedback and responses.
Their ability to communicate very quickly any changes in plans, such as the need to reschedule.
Of course, it is anyway possible to print and send paper invitations simultaneously. Especially for people who are not very comfortable with the Internet. In addition, they can be kept as a souvenir.

9. Bridgerton’s Influence

The English regency era has come back into fashion thanks to the Netflix series Bridgerton. The vintage look is found in wedding dresses with:
– Oversized bows
– Puff sleeves
– Lace-up boots, gloves
– Embroidered veils
– Ribbons
– Headdresses
– Pastel tones
– Old-fashioned flower arrangements

The same vintage feel is also popular in all things decor with copper candle holders, vintage china services, crystal glassware, and fresh or dried flowers.

10. Getting married abroad

The idea of ​​leaving with family and friends to celebrate love is gaining ground after months of confinement and health restrictions. This trend is also helping to reduce guest numbers as many people are still not comfortable with large groups for long hours in this new normal. It’s a way to combine comfort and pleasure.

Spotlight Formal Wear is dedicated to keeping up with the latest trends in the wedding world every year. The Omaha-based company is at your service to provide references for decoration, fashion, entertainment and event organization.
