2022 was an amazing year for big and beautiful weddings. As British Vogue profiles, stars including Brooklyn Beckham, J-Lo, Kourtney Kardashian and Britney Spears tied the knot last year – with each wedding seeming to outdo the last in terms of beauty. Couples that are set to tie the knot need not be deterred by the high price tag attached to many of these ceremonies – they can serve up a huge amount of inspiration for their own big day.
The celebrity pairing of the year saw Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tie the knot. Their Las Vegas wedding was inspirational in its modesty. Low key, for friends, and with a white theme giving class to both to-be-weds, J-Lo also showed off her understated wedding ring after the weekend had finished, via Instagram, according to The Independent. One of the most understated and coolest weddings of the year, a lot of inspiration has been served up by the couple to engaged couples everywhere – simple understated class can help to focus on friends and family, and that includes when picking out the wedding bands.
Something more bold
In May, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker tied the knot with Kourtney Kardashian in a ceremony hosted by Dolce & Gabbana in Portofino, Italy. This was a direct opposite to J-Lo’s ceremony, in many ways. Instead of simple understated class, it was more of an ostentatious and luxury-laden event, but has something to offer – color. Rich reds, golds and shocking whites provided life to the ceremony, and gave that authority to enjoy luxury.
Focusing on food
As Brides.com notes, one of the most inspirational weddings of 2022 had to be Twilight’s Taylor Lautner and Taylor Dome. The inspiration in their wedding can be found in the venue – a classy California vineyard. This brings in a suggestion on how to best enjoy a wedding, and how to plan one – through the food and drink that surrounds the day. That’s a great way to think about the wedding day, and to create memories that last a lifetime.
Celebrities have the most high-profile weddings. With that, they can provide a huge amount of inspiration for those planning their own big day. Whether focused on food and drink, small and intimate, or big and brash, there’s something for everyone – and the stars can provide that little push to make those choices.
