Corset Bodices

The corset bodice. From lingerie detailing to slip silhouettes, boudoir fashion has become a new classic! Exposed boning in the bodice is all the rage this season. It’s sultry but understated. It’s classy and ultra-feminine. In other words, it’s hot! Not to mention, the structure and overlay are quite flattering on many body shapes. It's also simple to wear and style in any season of the year!


Backless Wedding Dresses

This classic is sticking around. In 2022, expect the backless wedding gown as a favorite. There’s nothing like a gorgeous low-back wedding gown or statement illusion detailing.


Square Neckline Dresses

Another classic is reigning supreme this year. The square neckline is a 90s throwback that’s a little sweet, a little seductive, and all-around classy. It is especially stunning on a minimalist silhouette.


High Neckline Dresses

Looking for something a little more sophisticated? This is the modern take on a classic bridal look, exposing less on the neck. The full coverage is an exquisite blend of romantic and seductive. By leaving a little more to the imagination, you’ll leave your guests talking about it in a good way!

Ceremonies can be simple or detailed, depending on your personality and preference for the big day. While the foundation of the wedding ceremony has remained relatively traditional, the structure, location, and novelties can come and go. Here’s what you can expect to see in 2022 wedding ceremonies.


Shrinking the Guest Lists

Small venues are the rage right now. Why? Well, if the arrival of a global pandemic taught us anything, it’s that less can be much more. Sizing down your guest count to those you hold closest can not only allow for a more intimate affair, but also be really friendly to your wallet and open up opportunities in the budget that were otherwise impossible.


Picking Outdoor Venues

Outdoor wedding ceremony settings will become even more popular in 2022. They’re an excellent setting for your “I Do’s” as Mother Nature provides a beautiful backdrop and you’ll have more room for social distancing. Not to mention fresh air and a natural sun lit ambience.


Bringing Interactive Entertainment

We’re seeing many couples choosing live entertainment in the form of string quartets, live bands, violinists, and harpists, to name a few. And they are segmenting their event to have different parts of the day feature another type of live entertainment. Maybe a harpist for the ceremony and string quartet for the cocktail hour.


2022 Wedding Hair Trends

Wedding hairstyles are constantly evolving, and 2022 is no different. Whether you're planning a large celebration, an intimate elopement, a micro-wedding, or a mini-mony, you'll want to look and feel like your most beautiful self on this magical day.


Textured Bridal Bun

Loose curls meet textured updos and Chignons for a totally romantic look. Enough said.


Adding Some Bling

Your wedding ring isn’t the only thing that should shine on wedding day. Adding hair combs, headbands, pins, and tiaras that sparkle like diamonds can really add a little pop to a simple, elegant look. They’re also all the rage this year!


Wide Brim Hats & Boho Braids

Yep! The bridal wide rim hat and boho braids are here to stay in 2022. What a fun wedding hair accessory.


All-Natural Style

The pandemic had many people staying away from hair salons and finding ways to tame their natural locks, which consequently has created a trend wave in the wedding fashion world. The simple, natural wedding hairstyles will be a popular go-to for it’s easy maintainability.
