Wedding season is right around the corner, and before you know it, your fridge will be full of Save the Dates, invitations, and thank you cards. At 25, I’m at the age where half of my friends are getting married, and the other half haven’t had a legitimate relationship yet. As someone who falls somewhere in between the two extremes, I love being invited to a wedding and finding inspiration for my hypothetical future wedding. And while I often scroll through Pinterest and Instagram for 2022 wedding inspiration, I recently discovered that Etsy is the place to watch.

Once you have a general idea of ​​the mood for your wedding, Etsy is a great site for figuring out exactly what you need to bring it to life. Etsy just released a Guide to wedding trends 2022 and it’s full of fun, personalized decorations and accessories for brides of all aesthetics.

Celebrations have new value after many had to be postponed due to coronavirus precautions, so these days there’s a greater appreciation for detail and unique flair. Traditional weddings are no longer in the spotlight as brides ditch classic white dresses for colorful tulle, jeweled engagement rings and shorter hemlines. Even as a wedding guest, there’s more leeway for statement dresses, personalized gifts, and memorable moments.

While it’s all really about bridal, Etsy will help you zero in on all the most sought-after trends and give you the tools to make them your own. Read on for the best takeaways from Etsy’s 2022 Wedding Trend Guide.

bridal bows

Bows are a classic way to add a “wow factor” to any outfit, but they look especially beautiful when incorporated into bridal looks. Although the shape of an arch is simple, they can be incorporated in different ways.

You can wear a large bow as a centerpiece or add several small bows to your hair or dress for exquisite detail. If a bow doesn’t go with your look but you still want to incorporate them, consider adding them to your bridesmaids’ outfit or décor.

This silk bow would be perfect to wear to your bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner. It’s formal yet playful, and the attached short veil is a fun detail.

60s styling

Sixties fashion was all about pushing the norms of what was considered traditional. In 2022, the same sounds are true, especially after COVID protocols have resulted in so many non-traditional wedding adjustments.

Wearing a 60s-inspired short wedding dress or a pillbox is a great way to add a unique touch to your big day. This mod wedding dress feels both retro and modern – the cropped hemline would look great at a city wedding or as a reception dress.

Heirloom Gifts

This one is for the wedding guests out there! The best gifts are those with personal meaning and thought behind them. If the gift is really spectacular, it can be passed on to future generations.

One way to ensure the significance of a gift is to personalize it. Personalized cutting boards, wedding keepsake boxes, or bouquet preservation items are popular options for gifting a happy couple.

A personalized wedding box is a thoughtful and functional gift. It can be used to store wedding keepsakes, invitations, photos and more. I recommend filling one yourself with a few special pieces before giving it to the bride and groom.

Destination Inspired Weddings

With travel plans pretty much on hold (in a bad way) over the past few years, a fun alternative has become the destination wedding for your guests. Tropical decor and wanderlust, travel-inspired invitations, and getaway themes are trending on Etsy right now.

These travel-inspired decor pieces work whether you’re jumping on a plane or hitching a ride through your hometown. These Save the Date Cards are themed around all travel-related celebrations and will have guests excited to get away for a night.

Regency aesthetics

The aesthetic revival of the Regency can be attributed to Bridgerton, which is about to return to Netflix for a second season! The 19th century aesthetic is made with romantic details, feminine accents and opulent design – if it’s good for a princess, it’s good for Regencycore.

these tulle wedding gloves will instantly make your bridal look more sophisticated. Layer your rings more than the gloves for an extra touch of drama.

Colorful celebrations

Bright colors are trending right now, so it’s no surprise that they’re being incorporated into wedding outfits. Colorful accents are used to emphasize joy and celebration, making them perfect for a bride.

Colorful wedding dresses and engagement rings are all the rage, and the sparklier the better! This pink bridal skirt is gorgeous, and a great option if you don’t want to wear pure white. It encompasses the traditional elements of a wedding dress, but stands out with its soft pink hue.
