Six wedding trends of 2022 straight from the industry professionals mouth!

A wedding is one of the most important milestones in adulthood, and so it comes as no surprise that couples look for subtle and captivating ways to make this day the most memorable for themselves and their guests. This year, it’s all about classic and romantic colors with modern twists and unique accents.

• Keep it Classic •

The days of over-the-top table linens and outrageous colors have fallen to the wayside, and we see a return to the classics: ivory and white. Simple and classic is key to any tablescape and allows couples to easily personalize with unique accents. Think of the tablecloth as a blank canvas to showcase the individual elements on the tables. Using these classic colors not only allows more expressive freedom but also keeps the vision budget friendly.

• Make it Modern •

Not a fan of the classics? Audacious modern touches are huge right now. Think clean, straight lines, sharp contrast, dark colors, and matte finishes. Black is a great way to modernize a classic ivory or white base. Black China or chargers against a light tablecloth brings a table into the 2020’s. Add some matte flatware with square lines for another low-key modern touch.

• Go for the Gold •

Gold is back and bigger than ever! From flatware to seating to decorative accents, it’s everywhere. Elevating guest tables with the Midas touch will surely leave a lasting impression. Gold is the perfect accent to classic colors like ivory, black and white and so easy to accomplish with class, style and grace.

• Stand-out Head Table •

Working with a limited budget or just looking to do something a little more special for the people standing by your side? Highlight the importance of the head table and those gathered around it, by setting it apart with different table linens, accessories, or décor than at the rest of the party. One way to do this, is to add a unique piece to the place settings or by upgrading the entire table design. This is a simple and cost-effective way to add a little something extra to the experience for those nearest to your heart.

• Out with the Old – In with the Bold •

Bold is beautiful! Contrasting colors, metallic touches, and statement pieces are great way to bring the bold to your look. Traditional and unconventional go hand-in-hand in today’s world with color combos like black and white, black and ivory, terracotta and ivory, or ivory on dark bare wood. Set these combinations off with a large metallic or geometric centerpiece and chargers for each place setting.

• Organic Accents •

The perfect additions to your classic colors and metallic accent pieces are natural accents like eucalyptus and other greenery. Any type of greenery will bring a fresh and beautiful twist to your décor. Use eucalyptus as a table runner, or as the napkin color. Bring in succulents as a finishing touch for place settings that can double as a favor for guests. These accents are incredibly versatile and can find a spot among any décor!
