Traditions are so important in our busy lives as they provide us a sense of comfort, stability and familiarity. But the road to “I do” is littered with hundreds of opinions and decisions from near & dear ones.
So modern couples are opting to personalize their day and question the traditions involved by keeping the ones that are most meaningful and ditching the ones that no longer serves the purpose to their sense of belonging.
It’s time to create your own or revamp the old traditions to give your own meaning. Carve your own path and create the day of their dreams as this journey of love belongs to you two and it should give meaning to your journey. Here’s what’s in and what’s out for 2022 weddings!
Wedding Traditions That Are In
Increased Focus on Guest Experience
Increased focus on the guest experience listed as one of the biggest trends of 2022 weddings. From tables personalized as per the likes of the guests to creating immersive entertainment experiences, couple are looking for new ways to personalize. From a shift of importance on wedding components such as design and style, couples are simply looking to bring together their loved ones in a safe and entertaining way once again.
When it comes to designing your wedding, there’s really no “one size fits all” approach. In fact, we think some of the best weddings are the ones packed with personality, creativity, and authentic details that tell a story about the couple.
Colored Wedding Dress
Long white dresses look inherently bridal, but it’s the year of bold & bright colors. With so many different hues available, brides are opting for colors like blues, ivory, beige and even black and red. Many international bridal couture designers are reportedly crafting colored masterpieces and say that the demand for colored wedding dress has recently increased.
Alternative Cake Ideas
There’s a new take on the cake in modern weddings. There are lots of alternatives if you want your sweets to reflect your own unique taste. You can try anything from a tower of macaroons to cupcakes or even a donut display.
Wedding Traditions That Are Out
Toss out the Bouquet Toss
The time-old tradition of tossing flowers into the air has disappeared in thin air for 2022. But if you somehow still want to incorporate this idea, we say, give it a modern twist! Instead, offer up your wedding blooms to the couple in the room who has been married the longest.
In ancient times, parents used to fix the marriage and bride & groom were not allowed to see each other until the wedding day. Can you believe it? No? But it’s true! And hence the idea of ‘first look’ came into the picture, so that they can’t back out. Modern weddings have no such limitations and hence the need of doing a first look is also not there.
Flower Girl & Ring Bearer
One more old tradition that’s going out is the idea of a flower girl and ring bearer. Traditionally, it is considered as a symbol of fertility and prosperity in a couple’s life. With couples opting for elopements and micro weddings in 2022, the concept of flower girl + ring bearer is gradually disappearing.
