Our top 5 wedding trends for 2022

2020 and 2021 will go down in history as the most frustrating and turbulent times for wedding couples in Ireland. Rescheduling dates, not knowing how many guests to invite and the best made plans thrown into turmoil. The months ahead are looking brighter for those of us planning our weddings with restrictions on numbers due to be eased again from October. So what are the big wedding trends for 2022 and what should we do differently in the future?

Here are our top 5 wedding trends for 2022.

1. Anni-ceptions

This is a term that you might hear more and more of. For those couples that went ahead and had a micro wedding (minimony) during the pandemic, an Anni-ception is the perfect way to still have a party and maybe even get to wear the dress a second time! It’s the best way to celebrate your 1st wedding anniversary too.  At the Lawrence Hotel in Athboy, they specialise in bespoke weddings so it’s the perfect destination for a anni-ception! For more details just visit their website here.

2. Intimate weddings

One thing that has come out of the pandemic is the importance of having your nearest and dearest with you on the day, and spending quality time with them. The days of the big 200+ weddings may be dwindling. Having a smaller, more intimate affair will be the order of the day in the years to come. Lucky for you, The Lawrence Hotel in Athboy is the perfect setting for an intimate wedding. Say your I do’s in the Courtyard, followed by a beautiful meal in the private dining room and lots of music in dancing in the restaurant. Email our wedding team today on so set up a meeting.

3. 2 piece Wedding dresses.

Keeping up with the changing styles of wedding dresses is hard work but we love this one! A 2 piece wedding dress is perfect for a anni-ception too so you can change up what you wear on both days. Think a pretty corset and full skirt for the ceremony and meal, and change it up to a corset and sexy skirt for the dancing!

4. Wedding Creche

Lets face it, we all dream of having a kids free wedding but it just never turns out that way. Whether we know we have to have our own kids present, or your nieces and nephews are an important part of the day, kids will more than likely have to be entertained. Having a room or area for them to entertain themselves in or getting a babysitter in to keep them out of trouble is the best option. We have a dedicated room in the Lawrence Hotel for the younger members of your party to be looked after.

5. No Stress

Having a stress free and relaxing day is the priority for every couple now. Nobody wants to relive the stress that couples have had over the past 18 months. You want to book your venue, band, photographer and look forward to the big day. The Lawrence Hotel is a proud member of the Royal Irish Weddings supplier group. The group is made up of over 20 suppliers that will look after your big day from start to finish. Bands, photographers, make up artists, bridal shops, suits, florists, wedding cake specialists, you name it. The group are holding a wedding fair on the 19th of September in the Lawrence Hotel and you are invited!
