Wedding Gowns with puffy sleeves and corsets

Wedding dresses with puffy sleeves and corsets are all the rage with Brides this year. Most likely due to the popularity of the series Bridgerton (which is also another item on this list!). The pandemic has left brides and designers with a craving for big, bold statements and have even gone that extra mile with adding a dash of 80’s flare!

Wedding sneakers for groom and bride

Whether you’re hiding a pair under your gown or showing them off with an accompanying after-party frock, a sneaker can, in fact, be wedding appropriate. Sneakerheads are thrilled! The combination of street style with wedding attire is a fun trend we love — and it’s just so damn cool. Plus, there’s the added benefit of comfort on your wedding day.

Pearls – on cakes, decor, veils, dresses and shoes

With their luminous shine and endless options, pearls are in for 2022. Expect to see pearls all over weddings — think wedding cakes, decor, capes and veils, dresses, shoes (and sneakers!), and even manicures. As for jewelry, pearl chokers will be big and rings, too.

Sustainable weddings

Your wedding may be one of the happiest days of your life, but it is also on of the most wasteful. Sustainable weddings are all the rage! Growing in popularity with more and more climate change awareness. How can you have a sustain able wedding you ask? Take a look.

Stacked rings

Stacked rings have been growing in popularity this year! Aside from the unique, one-of-a-kind look, stacking rings can also carry more meaning. Each ring can represent a moment or a person as your life together changes and your family grows.

Alternative flower girls (flower grandma!)

Most brides long for having that surprise factor at their wedding and this one is one of the cutest! Flower grandmas, flower men, flower pets! Get as creative as you want to achieve that surprise factor.

Bridgerton themed weddings

The hit period drama from Netflix, “Bridgerton,” has taken the world by storm with its beautiful sets, romantic storylines and stunning costumes. Couples have taken notice as they plan for their summer and fall weddings, asking planners and vendors to re-create the look and feel of an early 19th century British ball, and turning to designers for wedding dresses that Lady Whistledown would surely approve of.

TikToks and Reels of viral moments

This year, expect to see super-fast sneak peeks of the wedding day in the form of TikToks and Instagram reels. Photographers and videographers can bring assistants or “social shooters” to capture content to be edited and shared before the day is even over.

Custom pet attire

Pet-friendly dog weddings are gaining traction this year, especially at venues like Hidden River Events where the mountains and our beautiful grounds are a doggie paradise. Dressing them appropriately makes for fun photos and are a huge hit! This may be our favorite wedding trend.

Unusual wedding attire

Many brides around the country are completely ignoring traditional wedding standards and making their own rules. This can come in the form of a slight tint to the white wedding gown or, can be a bold vivid wedding gowns. Some brides are taking this to the next level. Opting for being fully outfitted in cosplay, leather, feathers, or outfits that you would normally only see at the Met Gala. There are no rules. Expression of individuality is the only rule.
