Fall 2022 Wedding Trends

The fall wedding season is here & there’s no better time of year to get married in Isle of Palms, so here are the biggest trends we’re currently seeing

Fall in the Lowcountry is the perfect time to get married as we continue to enjoy our endless summer here at Wild Dunes, which helps make our wedding season last even longer! This fall, weddings are booming and there are so many unique trends we are seeing take over the industry that you might want to make note of for your big day.

Coastal Grandmother

We live by the ocean, so of course we always love the coastal vibes, but now we are seeing a large trend called the “Coastal Grandmother” style. Coastal Grandmother is a style that focuses largely on the preppy, coastal aesthetic, being often described as relaxed yet refined, casual but elevated. Basically, the goal of this theme is to create a sort of laid-back luxury feel that’s still warm and inviting, without being too cozy.

Intimate Ceremonies

Another trend we are seeing pick up is couples having smaller, more intimate ceremonies, and even a rise in elopements. This could still be a trend we see increasing as a result of the events of the COVID-19 pandemic when all weddings were forced to condense, but lots of couples are now leaning into this more post-pandemic. It is a great way to really get to focus on other details of the wedding, like your dream venue or ideal date when keeping the party small.

Destination Weddings

One of the reasons Charleston is such a hot spot to get married is the irresistible appeal of a destination wedding! There’s no dreamier place to celebrate your special day than overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from Isle of Palms beach or the Indigo Room & Rooftop terrace. With a rise in intimate weddings, destination weddings have in turn trended upward as a natural way to limit attendance. What cooler travel experience than to have your wedding in paradise, surrounded by your nearest and dearest?

Bold & Colorful Decor

While white is still the go-to for weddings, in 2022 we’ve been seeing a lot more hues popping out. Weddings are definitely starting to get more personalized and unique, with décor that pops, and what better way to show the joy of your special day than with some fun color?
