Next also looked into Google search data and Instagram hashtag data to uncover the top trends of the wedding season going into 2022. Bridal expert Naomi Murphy says purple, black and red are the top three most popular colour schemes for bridesmaid dresses, particularly for winter weddings.
Neutrals, champagne, copper, baby pink, baby blue and navy are also likely to continue to be popular going into 2022, as well as mixing and matching different styles.
