Can you even believe that it is 2022? Time is flying, and trends are surely changing. While some wedding trends are timeless, others tend to fade from year to year. We wholeheartedly believe that your wedding is individual, and should express your own personal style, however, can’t help but look forward to each year’s set of unique trends. So without further ado, let’s get into some of our favorite 2022 predicated wedding trends!
1. Non-Traditional Florals
There is nothing that will help you paint the picture of your perfect wedding day more than florals. While simplistic florals are stunning, we are loving the trend of non-traditional bouquets and floral accents. With the combination of different colors and textures, there is a limitless list of floral combinations that will make your wedding unforgettable.
Dried flowers have become quite popular in 2021, and are the perfect way to add a simple, yet unique touch to your big day.
2. Vibrant Color Palettes
Neutral colors were very trendy for 2021, however, as we enter 2022 it is predicted that technicolor weddings will be all the rage! From vibrant jewel tones to punchy pastels, we are so excited to see where this trend takes Montana weddings.
In 2022 we are anticipating weddings similar to this stunning setup photographed from Tabby Miller Photography. From its deep cobalt blue table setting to its daring pop of pink and orange, we are serious suckers for this unique color palette!
3. Vintage-Inspired Jewelry
Introduced in 2021, vintage-inspired jewelry is predicted to be quite popular in the coming seasons. Gold and bronze metallics, highly influenced from past decades, are sure to make an appearance in 2022, and we are so here for it!
Photographed by Opal + Ox Photography and Film at the Star M Barn, a Cheers MT Venue, this jewelry combination is giving us all of the vintage feels and is the perfect way to add a classic touch to your wedding day.

In 2022, it is predicted that non-traditional wedding gowns will be highly sought after. Jumpsuits, high-lows, and short/tea-length wedding gowns are virally spreading across the covers of famous wedding gown publications nationwide and are guaranteed to be a popular trend in the coming wedding season.

7. Destination Elopements
If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that Montana is one of the most highly sought-after states when it comes to destination elopements. Glacier National Park elopements have been all of the rage in previous years, and 2022 will be no exception. The vast mountainscapes of Montana offer the perfect romantic place to tie the knot.
Speaking of Glacier National Park, we are head over heels for this stunning Montana elopement captured by Kelly Kirksey Photographer, a Cheers MT Premier Vendor. Overlooking the picturesque Logan’s Pass, this beautiful elopement was surely one for the books.
8. Small Wedding Cakes
In the wise words of Flo Rida, “I only came for the cake”. In our professional opinion, the wedding cake is definitely one of the best parts of any wedding, however, in 2022 small wedding cakes are predicted to be a widespread trend. As seen in 2021, dessert tables are rising in popularity, and we believe that they will carry over into the new wedding season!
While grandiose wedding cakes are stunning, we are quite fond of a small wedding cake, surrounded by a surplus of other goodies. We are loving this elegant dessert table captured by Kelly Kirksey Photographer, a Cheers MT Premier Vendor. These photos are definitely making us hungry!
