Wedding season is in full swing, and if you’re a bride-to-be, you’ll no doubt have a list as long as your arm of big day essentials. From where to do it to what kind of entertainment to have, there’s a lot that goes into making a wedding extra-special. Up there with the most important decisions, of course, is what to wear.
According to research by the money experts at Wealth of Geeks, one wedding dress style in particular is trending for 2022. Analysis of Google Trends and Pinterest data revealed that off-the-shoulder dresses have seen a whopping 334% increase in searches in the last year, more than any other style. Material-wise, timeless lace is still the most sought after fabric, but chiffon seems to be making quite the comeback if the 675% increase in searches for the material is anything to go by.

Brides in need of a little inspo might be interested to know that a half up, half down do – the look of choice for Olivia Palermo and Kate Middleton on their weddings days – is the most popular hairstyle linked with the term “wedding hairstyle” on Pinterest, with a global monthly sarch volume of 30, 100. The classic bun is also having a moment, with a 95% rise in searches since the start of this year.
