Over the past two years, weddings have changed drastically, going from large-scale pre-pandemic events to more intimate, Covid-friendly celebrations.
Now, nuptials are set to take on another form as we head into 2020, in the way of extravagant, Regency-themed weddings.
According to wedding planning website Hitched, next year will see plenty of lavish, Bridgerton-inspired celebrations as the hit Netflix series returns to our screens.
“As the UK eagerly awaits the launch date of series two of Bridgerton, we are already seeing inspiration being take from the hit Netflix series, which is now being injected into wedding ceremonies and receptions,” explains Sarah Allard, Hitched editor, to Stylist.
“While we’ve seen a rise in brides opting for more casual wedding dresses and bridal suits, we’re now also seeing an increase in brides going in the complete opposite direction - after a year of dressing down they want to go big and finally celebrate with a show-stopping dress - and what better way than adopting the fashions of the Regency period.”
She continued: “Whether you’re a super fan or simply like to indulge now and then in Regency escapism - it’s clear that Bridgeton-inspired weddings are going to be a huge trend for 2022.”
Regency-inspired designs, regal accessories like gloves and embellished headpieces, plus colourful bridal gowns, will all play a part in wedding trends for next year.
Ceremonies are also predicted to take inspiration from Bridgerton: think vintage china tablescapes, Instagram-friendly wisteria, and pastel-blue colour schemes.
Bridgerton has been renewed for seasons three and four, following the enormous success of its debut series which first aired in December.
