The weather in the South of France is perfect for a wedding

The most popular time to get married in the South of France is from May to October. The weather in the South of France during this period is mostly hot, dry, and sunny. Late spring and early autumn are less hot, but the temperatures are usually still very pleasant with little rain. Your outfit choice should certainly match the climate of your destination. Attending the wedding on the Côte d’Azur gives you plenty of possibilities to wear the most beautiful, delicate dresses and more casual suits.

French Bridal Fashion

The traditional French wedding dress (la robe de mariée) looks a lot like the simple white or off-white American one with a train and veil. The thing that catches the eye is the effortless yet chic style of French brides. They use a minimum of accessories and let the luxurious fabric, manufactured exactly like an art piece take the lead.

Consider the Wedding Venue

The location of the wedding ceremony should also guide the choice of your outfit. While deciding on what to wear to a destination wedding in France you need to consider what type of venue it’s taking place and what kind of ground you’ll be on. The South of France has a lot of beautiful by-the-sea venues, medieval castles, and rustic private villas. Some of them are surrounded by lawn or sand so you will want to stay away from stilettos. Wedges are the safe and perfect choice for outdoor weddings.

Wedding Attire in France is Simple yet Classic

If you watch French people and how they dress, you’ll quickly notice that they almost always appear to have just stepped right out of a fashion magazine, but their style comes naturally.

The guests in France are expected to dress up. While attending a destination wedding in the South of France better avoid anything too short, too low-cut, or too tight. The more conservative cuts are more in favor. The most important thing that you should keep in mind while choosing your wedding attire is effortless, chic, and quality.

An important thing to remember, in France white and its equivalent colors like ivory, cream, and champagne are reserved for the bride.

Weekday weddings

The big weddings are back! This year, many couples decide to consecrate the whole weekend to celebrate their wedding. Couples are booking the venues not only for Saturdays and Sundays but also for Fridays or even Thursdays. They include different kinds of events like a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, pool party, group entertainments, or even a detox party.

The surge of micro-weddings will slowly come to an end. They will not completely disappear, but they will become the exception rather than the rule.

Destination Events

Over pandemic and lockdown, elopements increased in popularity. Many couples decided to limit their guests’ list to a minimum and get married far from home.

The idea of destination weddings becomes one of the most important 2022 wedding trends. The fact that the world is finally reopening encourages many couples to choose a far-away, overseas destination. This kind of wedding symbolizes a new, fresh start.

The South of France is a perfect choice for a destination wedding. The picturesque landscapes, beautiful venues, delicious food, and the sun shining almost every day make it a perfect backdrop for an extraordinary destination wedding.

Virtual wedding invitations

Virtual invitations were a real lifesaver in the last years. The need for postponing or rescheduling weddings during the pandemic has resulted in the increasing popularity of real-time communication via virtual save-the-dates. It feels like they have held on and we can expect they will continue to grow in popularity also in 2022.

This type of communication is a big time and stress saver for future brides and grooms.

Bold, Vibrant Colors and High impact florals

“Dopamine dressing” or “dopamine environment” is the most popular 2022 color theme and 2022 wedding trends. We will see much less white and other neutral colors. Couples are choosing, vivid, lively color schemes. They wan to surround themselves with bold, statement flowers and decors. Especially the large, garden-inspired hanging floral installations are extremely popular this year. The whole venue becomes part of a lush, romantic experience.

Unusual Entertainment

Musical and entertainment diversity during the party becomes more and more important. Couples are more likely to choose many performances for the same event spaced in time. Just imagine having a string section for a cocktail, a pop-up band for dancing, and a brass band for dinner. Your guests will be over the moon!

Back Garden Weddings

Enchanted gardens and venues with green spaces are rising in popularity in 2022. Inspired by Bridgerton, couples are choosing elegant, secret-garden-style atmospheres for their weddings. It’s easy to decorate those types of ceremonies from scratch, allowing to fully customize wedding décor, and give the ability to host more guests.
