Türkiye at the center of luxury destination weddings in 2022
With the abandonment of travel restrictions due to the pandemic, the demand for destination weddings has also started to increase. Destination weddings, which promise to combine travel and wedding entertainment, will be the favorite of couples who are bored during the pandemic period and expect a different experience. Of course, it should be noted that our country continues to maintain its place among the most popular wedding destinations in the world.
“Sustainability” is the wedding trend of 2022
Traditional details in wedding planning can be planned in such a way that products such as paper are not consumed. Cemre Tepeler, Chairman of the Board of KM Events: “Sustainability is now a trend for weddings as well.” says. “The number of couples who distribute their wedding invitations digitally is increasing day by day. Couples also take care to make environmentally conscious choices. Growable live plants, for example, are on the rise among this year’s eco-friendly wedding gifts.”
Sincere invitations stand out
Good news for sincerity lovers! Big parties became the trend after the pandemic, but 2022 is the year to return to more minimal and sincere invitations. Weddings, where simple and intimate environments are created, are among the new trends. Couples who want to host their guests with a calm, simple and natural decoration head towards their weddings in the open air and alone with nature. Cemre Tepeler, Chairman of the Board of KM Events: “The definition of luxury is now redefined according to the preferences of the couples. It is possible to realize a concept that is both simple and noble, but also luxurious and natural.” says.
Customized guest notes
In order to make their most special day unforgettable, couples care very much about how all their guests will remember the night. A return to the 2022 trends of more intimate weddings is customized guest notes. Handwritten notes specially prepared for the guests are ready to take their place next to the wedding gifts.
One of the most important issues for couples who focus on the guest experience is wedding cakes. We can say that the magnificent and multi-layered wedding cakes have been replaced by personalized mini wedding cakes. These special cakes, which will make the guests feel even more special, will be one of the unforgettable details of the night.
Brides are also natural and nostalgic
In the summer of 2022, the most elegant wedding dresses will come to the fore. Fine lace and tulle detailed wedding dresses will be among the favorites. The return to nature and nature is reflected on wedding dresses as nostalgic details. The number of brides who prefer layered frilly models is also increasing.
Bridal bouquets are one of the most important elements that complete the image of brides. In bouquets, cream, beige and nude tones will be preferred. We can also say that dried flowers are starting to enter the bouquets.
Effortless beauty trend also stands out in bridal hair and make-up. Natural-looking hair that feels like it hasn’t been worked on for long hours is among the favorites. In make-up, a simple and understated look is preferred.
Saying that a very busy summer season awaits us, KM Events Chairman of the Board Cemre Tepeler said, “After the stagnant seasons due to the pandemic, our weddings in 2022 surpassed the pre-pandemic season. In Turkey, especially Istanbul and Bodrum have become two very big wedding destinations. Weddings continue until mid-October. We will host a variety of weddings, from Indian weddings that will last 3 days and 3 nights, to specially drawn and designed organizations where different cultures come together and guests from different parts of the world will be hosted.”
