With the December holidays just around the corner, it is time to wrap up this splendid year up. 2022 was full of ups and downs, victories and disappointments, newly found loves and devastating heartbreaks – but today, we are focusing on the positive only. Here are some of our absolute favorites from the world of weddings: cakes, dresses, flowers – you name it! We believe there is nothing better than starting 2023 with some inspiration the past has endowed us with.
While pastels will always hold a special place in our hearts, we’re now drawn to the monochromatic floral color schemes. We adore the idea of adding depth with several shades of the same base color, whether it be in vibrant pink and red tones, warm, golden combinations of sunny yellows, or lush greenery tones.
By including more unique blossoms and foliage in their floral arrangements than ever before, floral designers have experimented with shape and texture this year.
Since this is a trend that is here to stay, in 2023 we may anticipate seeing even bigger and bolder flower clouds, epic flowering backdrops, imaginative Chuppahs, and hanging displays.
Warm coffee colors like espresso, latte, mocha and cinnamon spice are all prominent in contemporary flower designs for weddings in 2022 and 2023, resulting in a whole new floral appearance.
Black & White
With all eyes turned toward black-tie weddings, black and white décor has become very popular. The trendiest flower style we’ve seen in a while is this one!
We admire brides who are brave enough to wear color on their wedding day, which is why this ensemble from Halfpenny London, which consists of the “Orchid” skirt and the “Hyacinth” dress, topped our list.
The latest designs by Colombian master Francesca Miranda are filled with old-world splendor and pay homage to romance and nostalgia. The collection “Gloria,” which has the name of one of the region’s most famous flowers, was inspired by these notions.
Elie Saab is a master of 3D overlays and appliqués, two distinctive techniques that were prominently included in the atelier’s most recent collection focused on bridal femininity. These fluid, sculptural gowns are embellished with sparkling sequins, organza petals, and stones. Despite their extravagant appearance, they are ideal for dancing.
Is anyone up for some beaded, lace, or needlework embellishments? Save Eisen Stein’s most recent collection to your favorites if you’re looking for an intricate, complex wedding dress.
When creating Amsale’s first significant release since before the pandemic, designer Michael Cho was inspired by nature—forest streams, mossy banks, and towering trees—and modernized the brand’s trademark silhouettes with fanciful botanical threadwork (think mushroom caps, butterflies, and winding branches).
Looking for something to make your stunning cake seem like it came from a royal fairy tale? Choose patterns with white sugar pearls or a metallic color like burned gold or rose gold if you want it to seem extra glam.
Needless to say, this style is indicative of creative souls. Couples looking to express their whimsical selves might want to pay extra attention.
Last but not least, exquisite geode cakes became all the rage in 2022. It is easy to see why. Even those skeptical of the whole wedding ceremony fuss will likely agree that this awe-inspiring creation is worth a buck.
Edible Pressed Flowers
In 2022, edible flowers have become a significant wedding cake fad. Not edible flowers made of fondant, chocolate, or sugar but genuine blooms. If you’re planning a garden wedding, we highly recommend embracing this style as we adore how the flowers appear squished into the buttercream.
Translucent Isomalt Design
This masterpiece is just one example of a clever inclusion of translucent pieces into the modern cake design. Unusual enough to draw attention, yet also versatile, such cakes can accompany almost any ceremony.
