The Best Wedding Themes for 2022

For many, a wedding is one of the most important and memorable days in a person’s life. While there are plenty of beautiful venues, it seems like a couple with a special connection often find wedding themes that really represents them. This is where couples come together with a special vision of their day, making it their own.

We can’t forget that planning a wedding is a lot of work. And it’s not like you can just throw anything together. You have to keep in mind what type of event your venue can accommodate and what time of year makes the most sense for your budget, guests, and other factors.

But we know that there are many different styles and tastes out there, as some people like cool retro and other traditional. With so many considerations to take into account, it can be difficult to find the best wedding theme for you. To help, here are some of our suggestions for perfect themes for 2022.

Outdoor Weddings

Outdoor weddings are becoming more popular as they are a beautiful way to show off the natural beauty of your venue and allows you to incorporate different elements of nature, like flowers and plants, into your decor.

You should make sure to plan the event in advance so that your guests can bring the right clothing appropriate for the weather, particularly if it will be cold. You’ll also need to think about things like shade, shelter from the sun and rain, and what kind of food you’ll provide.

Outdoor ceremonies are better suited for Summer, although Spring can have some great days if you are lucky.

Beach Weddings

Beach Weddings

Beach weddings are a hot trend right now. The beach is a great place to have your wedding, even if you live inland. In the summertime, it’s nice and warm and there are plenty of scenic areas to choose from. There are many different types of beach weddings, you can get married on the sand, by a poolside or near the water. Some people feel that it’s an intimate ceremony, while others love the idea of having their event on a beautiful coastline with the ocean in sight.

Figure out which type of beach wedding would work best for you and your guests’ preferences.

Modern Weddings

Wedding themes are continuing to evolve with many modern couples opting for a contemporary style that is sleek, fresh, and modern. The venues that match this kind of styling are typically spaces that feature high ceilings, wood or concrete floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and contemporary lighting.

We know that people enjoy expressing their individuality through their style choices and the details of their big day. So if you’re looking for something more personalised than what’s typically offered at most venues, consider renting out a space and decorating it yourself. For example, you can have your baker make custom cupcakes in your favourite colours and serve them alongside your floral arrangements from the grocery store instead of choosing from the pre-made options at your local flower shop.

Rustic Weddings

We covered this in our summer wedding themes guide as we love it so much. The most important thing about your rustic-style wedding is to create a relaxed environment for your guests to enjoy themselves and get to know each other better. There are lots of ways to create this vibe, from inviting everyone to an elegant outdoor dinner to bringing in an acoustic band for the cocktail hour. It’s all about being a little earthy and having a good time.

For rustic weddings, look for spaces that are reminiscent of historic buildings, old-timey farm stays, quaint heritage homesteads, wine country cellars, and warehouses. While these locations might be associated with old-fashioned ideas, they often feature a more sophisticated atmosphere with a rustic flair.

Rustic Weddings

Traditional/Classic Weddings

Traditional or classic weddings are timeless. A traditional wedding is a formal affair that often includes black-tie attire, tuxedos and gowns, flowers, and an over-the-top cake. The décor usually has a more traditional motif with no wild colours or patterns.

A variety of venues are available for hosting a wedding, from a church to a hotel to a botanic garden, and even a historic building. While many people choose to host their wedding in a traditional location, such as a church or a castle, many couples today are looking for more unique and interesting locations.

Bohemian Weddings

Bohemian weddings are perfect if you and your partner want to get married in a more relaxed atmosphere. Bohemian weddings typically involve a lot of colours, natural elements, and less restrictive dress codes. You can incorporate these themes in a variety of different ways with your wedding décor, table settings, and more. Consider using brightly coloured flowers, hanging strands of lights that create a soft glow, or choosing an outdoor venue for your ceremony.

Beach wedding venues, unique spaces and wineries, warehouses and restaurants, with an option of outdoor space, are all big hits with the bohemian wedding trend.


Wedding themes can help you save time on planning your marriage ceremony and reception.

But at the end of the day, no matter which style you choose, your wedding is yours and yours alone. Whether you’re looking for a traditional wedding or a bohemian one, it’s important to find a theme that fits your personality and your relationship.
