Wedding planning should include choices that invite a more intimate connection, like adding food trucks for a late night snack, including afternoon tea as a menu option, favors that embrace fall colors (like specialty scarves for guests) and plenty of downtime so that people can connect.
Pro tip: If you’d like to create an intimate wedding this fall, be sure to plan lots of small-group activities that allow your guests to get caught up. This could include spending time on the golf course for the guys or having a spa day for the women.
2. Weekday Weddings Get More Play
Many people who wanted to get married in larger venues in the year 2020 didn’t because they couldn’t. They were forced to either have smaller family-only weddings or to postpone their weddings until conditions improved. It’s for the latter reason that many weddings in 2022 are taking place on weekdays.
Let us explain. Because so many people decided to postpone their weddings, many wedding venues now have a considerable bottleneck as people try to make up for lost time.
Finding a venue that has weekend availability has gotten harder. To get around this, many couples have opted to get married during the week instead of on the weekend. Without other weekend conflicts for guests, we have noticed a higher number in attendance on week day weddings. Check the availability calendar for the upcoming year.
3. From ComicCon to Met Gala: Wedding Attire Gets Creative
While it’s likely that we’ll still see a lot of white wedding dresses for brides and traditional tuxedos for grooms, fall wedding trends in 2022 are definitely all about embracing individual style.
This might be dressing up as a favorite comic book or book character or recreating a historical period. It can also mean dressing in brilliant, almost neon colors: Fall wedding colors just might be bright pink or electric blue in 2022.
As far as wedding planning is concerned, then, the savvy wedding planner embraces the fashions that a wedding’s theme dictates. For example, an Alice in Wonderland wedding could include the groom dressed as the Mad Hatter and the bride dressed as Alice. The wedding colors would be red, white, and possibly black, with checkerboard floors and teacups a plenty.
Pro tip: If you plan a themed wedding, be sure to include a menu and entertainment options that embrace your choice. Talk to the caterer about making specialty cakes or themed food choices for the meal.
