The past two years have been difficult for those looking to tie the knot, but with the removal of lockdown restrictions, couples can finally feel excitement for their big day!
And with the growing desire to live a more sustainable and budget-friendly lifestyle, there is an increase in research for DIY and upcycling decorations. Whether you’re finally having your big day or having a post-ceremony party, we’ve created a list of how you can use your Cricut machine to keep up to date with all the 2022 wedding trends.
Regency Themed Weddings
With period dramas flooding our screens, it’s no surprise that there is an increase in regal inspired touches in 2022 weddings. Dainty lace and pops of pastel blue; personalised and handwritten notes, customised veils, and wax sealed invitations are in high demand.
Rebecca Marie Creative creates magnificent monarchical-themed bookmarks on her Instagram, which would make a fantastic wedding favour for guests.
Other regency-themed card designs in Design Space will have your guests feeling as though the social season has begun!

Flowers are beautiful, but they don’t last forever. Creating paper or fabric bouquets, boutonnieres, and garlands is an incredible and sustainable way to ensure that the beauty of your wedding lasts forever.
Looking for that picture-perfect backdrop for yourself and your guests? Then this wedding arch is the project for you! Not only is it beautiful, but it’s an excellent handmade option that doesn’t break the bank!
It wouldn’t be a wedding without a bouquet and there are some great Design Space projects that will allow you to immortalise your flowers! Find this Flower Bouquet on Design Space here.
Unsure of where to start when it comes to making your own flowers? Head to Cricut Flower Making 101 blog page to get started.
Preventing your guests from getting lost and showing up to a different event is vital to a good party. As such, it’s good to have a personalised and unique wedding sign.
There are lots of wedding signs created in the community, such as this one that was beautifully created by Eimear Hutchinson.
Regardless of your wedding theme, there are many different signs for you to choose from on Design Space, like this Rustic Wedding Welcome Sign.
Unique Tabletop Designs
This year, it’s all about tabletop designs. With more attention being paid to curating the perfect tabletop and less on the ceiling, there is a significant focus on table numbers, name tags and centrepieces.
As people are starting to incorporate sustainable elements into their weddings, here are some ways that you can use paper to create tabletop designs which can be reused or recycled afterwards.

Upcycle old fairy lights to create this beautiful Flower Garland. This garland can be found on Design Space here.
Everyone loves to feel included, and personalised Table Name Tags to indicate where people should sit will definitely do the trick!
After two years of not being able to see each other, there is a real focus on the guest experience at weddings this year, with newlyweds ensuring that their guests feel cared for and treasured.
From personal welcome notes to thoughtful wedding favours, here are a few examples of how you can use your Cricut machine to make your guests feel loved on your special day.
One way to show how much you appreciate someone is through a personalised keyring. On our Instagram, we shared a tutorial on how to create a customised floral keyring for your guests. See the video here.
Another way to add a bit of foliage to your tabletops and to provide an alternative wedding favour through the gift of a plant. Here is the perfect gift tag to attach to a mason jar plant.
Alternatively, you might want to give newlyweds a personalised gift to show them how much you appreciate them! This is what @Allthingshelen_ did for her bestie when she got married, gifting her a personalised jewellery box.
