Unique and Personal
Couples are wanting to stand out from the crowd much more these days, so there is a real emphasis on being unique. We only have to look at the Unique Rebels Union blog to feel inspired by doing it different!! One of the most common reasons brides want to make changes to stationery items I offer, is because they don't simple don't want the same as everyone else. They are looking for something different. The 'off the peg' option will just not do anymore. This goes for everything... cakes, entertainment, stationery, attire, and decor. They want something their guests haven't seen before. One way of making sure you are different to the rest of the pack is to work with a stylist to create a unique vision for the both of you. If you want to read about how you can do this you can find more info on that here.
Dried flowers aren't going anywhere, they have been the hottest trend for weddings in 2021 and are set to continue to flourish. Not only do they look beautiful, they last forever if you look after them, making them a sustainable choice for your day. Natural, calm, and earthy colours have been centre stage for a while working well for bohemian vibes, but we are set to see some amazing colour combinations in 2022 which will up the ante, helping to add unique personality.

You only have to scroll Pinterest for 1 minute to realise that wedding tables are styled at the highest level these days. Trends which will continue to soar are coloured linens and napkins, coloured glassware, and metallic cutlery. Be sure to look out for trendy twisted candles, antique pottery and vintage finds to personalise your decor. Paying attention to above the table not just on it will also take your wedding design to the next level. Using statement lighting, hanging plants or disco balls will help to totally immerse your guests into the whole experience.
When it comes to your wedding stationery couples are getting even more personal then before. Writing your own vows has become increasingly popular, having meaningful readings and thoughtful favour ideas are among some of the little touches that makes your day unique. More couples are working 1-1 with designers to help them create something from scratch as they want something different to everyone else. From custom invitation sets to help set the tone, to bespoke on the day signage. If you would like help bringing an idea to life you can read more about my bespoke design service here.
Making sure you greet your wedding guests in style is a big part of my mission, I love creating new ways that will help you put a big smile on their face. From my fold out welcome cards, personalised name tags and menus, to fun straw flags for drinks on arrival to choose from, you can easily create a welcome to make them feel special.
It is more important than ever to support your local economy, suppliers have taken a hard hit and need your help to come out the other side. The focus is on using local and small business's that are excited to work with you.
Rent & Re-Use
With couples being more conscious on what impact their wedding will have on the environment is making them put more thought into their choices. Think rented dress's or second hand clothing. And more couples are exploring pre-loved items with decorations too. Rock My Wedding has a fantastic Recycle option you can check out here >>
Colour of the Year
We can't take a look at the 2022 wedding trends and not talk about Pantone's Colour of the Year. And I am rather excited this year about the choice, as it is a personal favourite of mine. They are calling it 'Very Peri' which is basically purple. The colour is perfect for the year ahead, Pantone states in this article that "it represents a joyous attitude which encourages creativity and imaginative expressions."
Perfect for celebrating your marriage and creating a unique day that allows you to let yourselves go.
I am sure we will be seeing much more of this colour throughout the year as it is perfect for spring and summer weddings. If you want some more inspiration using this colour for your wedding, you would love these blog posts >>>
Colourful, Contrasting Colours
While neutral tones are still a strong favourite among couples looking for a natural, sustainable vibe. Over the last few years, the spotlight is on colourful weddings. Bold pops of colour that make your day come alive and add an element of fun have been increasing in popularity.
