Start planning: the biggest wedding trends for 2022 are out. The new year brings a fresh perspective on long-loved traditions, and we expect to see lots of personalisation. In this blog, our Yorkshire wedding venue shares some of the most popular trends we expect to see.
Earthy, Natural Colour Schemes
Bring the outside in and breathe life into your wedding, inspired by a new consciousness and appreciation for nature. Rust is predicted to be a popular colour for the year, signalling a move away from crisp whites and pastels. Terracotta pots, driftwood, linen, and dried flowers are core decorations, creating a sophisticated palette of nudes, coffees, caramels, and soft pink.
Two-Piece Wedding Dresses
Brides are constantly searching for something new and different. A two-piece wedding dress enables you to mix and match to suit your taste, and create a truly unique look. A contemporary take on the traditional, you can transform your look from day to night with the addition of an overskirt or changing of one piece. Ever versatile, and much easier to re-wear for brides who are eco-conscious.
Couples are really taking the opportunity to make their 2022 wedding their own, and entertainment is a huge part of this. From drag queens to axe throwing, photo booths to circus performers, this is a chance to have some fun. At Carlton Manor, we’ve seen giant Jenga, ice cream vans, bouncy castles, and photograph guest books to name a few.
A seamless flow between indoor and outdoor spaces is what many couples are craving this year. Think patios, tipis, and barns which easily transition between one another. More elevated than a ‘backyard’ wedding, with an atmosphere of ‘secret garden’ sophistication. To increase the whimsical element, add fairy lights, draped fabric, and vintage decorations. It also allows for a safer celebration with plenty of fresh air.
A combination of ‘anniversary’ and ‘reception’, anniceptions are a wedding-reception style celebration which takes place around your anniversary. With many couples having smaller celebrations over the past few years, this is a way of gathering all your friends and family for a bigger celebration.

Rented Wedding Dresses
While it’s not uncommon for grooms to rent their outfit, eco-conscious brides are now following their lead. Hiring a dress means designer brands are accessible for a fraction of the price, which is perfect for those who love their labels! Brides can also change their outfits throughout the wedding at a highly reduced cost, and don’t have to wait for their dress to be made-to-order.
