2022 has thrown us a curveball. Amid the uncertainty, there’s one thing we know to be true: our calendars will be full of “I do’s”! Right now, experts predict there will be an estimated 2.5 million weddings — a figure not seen since 1984.
So, what will the biggest wedding boom in forty years look like?
Christina Day, Tipton & Hurst’s wedding and events manager, is lifting the veil on the floral industry’s top trends:
Big Boho: Bohemian has been in for a while, but 2022 may be its biggest year yet. Brides are opting for moody color palettes of browns and mauves with textural elements like pampas grass and palmetto leaves. They’re pairing these earth tones with unique patterns, asymmetrical designs and unexpected décor choices, such as paper fans and cutouts.
Blushing Brides: Blush will continue to reign supreme in 2022. A timeless choice, brides are often using white and blush quicksand roses and hydrangeas as the bases of their bouquets, arrangements or garlands with richer-hued accents.
Plum Perfection: Pantone named Very Peri, a bluish, periwinkle hue with violet-red undertone, as its color of the year. And brides are on board. Many are weaving florals in maroon, plum and deep purples into their ceremony and reception décor choices.
Open Air, Everywhere: Outdoor gatherings are here to stay. Open-sided tents and combination indoor-outdoor venues have made pandemic- and weather-friendly parties possible. Couples are taking advantage with floral aisle markers and arches; balloon installations; geometric photo backdrops; floating pool arrangements; greenery or grass walls; and more.
Organic Opulence: Brides are going gaga for greenery with minimal florals and lush, organic arrangements and bouquets. In keeping with the boho trend, they’re often blending these with showstopping statement pieces like overflowing vases of pampas grass.
If guesses are right, 2022 weddings will take the cake.
