The First Look ✨

With rescheduled weddings and newly engaged couples, 2022 is shaping up to be one of the busiest wedding seasons in decades. Not only are couples excited about their big day, but wedding guests can't wait to celebrate and give gifts. However, that may leave you and your partner wondering what to put on your registry.

We've got the secret to the top wedding gifts and home-based trends based on what couples are registering for on our site. From color trends to incorporating a different kind of loved one (hint: it's furry!), here are Zola's top 2022 trends for wedding registry gifts and design trends that will dominate newlyweds' homes this year.

Top Home & Interior Design Trends for 2022

Going Green

Although the combination of blue and white has permeated wedding registries for years, green is the #1 color couples want in 2022 – from Le Creuset's Artichaut to KitchenAid's Pistachio. And, modern duos are sure to go green in more ways than one! For the first time, eco-friendly brand Stasher has made the list of top wedding gifts in 2022. So, being kind to the planet while utilizing lush tones is on-trend.

Expressive Tablescapes

2022 couples are getting more personalized than ever before with their weddings, and their registries are no exception. While dinnerware is consistently the top registry category, couples are opting for reactive, patterned, or textured dinnerware. They love putting these dishes alongside colored flatware sets and drinkware. Soon-to-be-weds are also looking for versatile glassware styles that are fancy enough to be used for cocktails or just to spice up their everyday water.

Specialty Serveware

While most left sourdough starters and bread baking behind, couples continue to gravitate towards niche appliances and serveware. They love items that cater to their hobbies, interests, and entertainment. Think ice cream makers and dish-specific serveware, such as Ramen Bowls, Sushi Serving Sets, and Pizza Platters.

Jetset Essentials

Restrictions are finally easing in countries across the world. This means that honeymoons, destination weddings, and travel, in general, are beginning to pick back up at an incredible pace. Couples are adding luggage, travel accessories, and Airbnb gift cards to their registries. They're also longing for cash funds inspired by bucket-list trips that they can finally take.

Outdoor Adventure

Couples are still opting to spend their time outside. So, it's no surprise that grills continue to over-penetrate the market compared to previous years. Likewise, outdoor furniture & fire pits remain on the rise as well.

Furry Friends

When couples aren't getting crafty in the kitchen, they're busy loving on their furry friends and pandemic pets. Pets is a category that continues to grow, and more and more couples are including furbabies as part of their special day.
