Short wedding dresses
With more and more people choosing smaller, more laid-back weddings thanks to restrictions of recent years, short wedding dresses are absolutely having a moment. Etsy shared that searches for short wedding dresses were up 29% and searches for A-line wedding dresses were up 22%. This simple style costs £250 and can be shopped here.

Generic we know, but colourful weddings are a thing.

There’s also been a rise in searches for colourful engagement rings with a 249% increase in searches for ruby engagement rings, and a 105% increase in searches for emerald engagement rings and a 12% increase in searches for sapphire engagement rings.
Personalised Wedding Gifts
And as for wedding gift trends? We’re looking to personalised presents more than ever. There’s been a 77% increase in wedding cutting boards engraved with wedding details (like the one above which you can shop here), as well as a 129% increase in personalised prints and illustrations.
