2023 is just around the corner, and with it comes a new set of wedding trends to keep an eye on. We’ve been in the wedding game for a long time now and have developed an eye for spotting the hottest new wedding trends. Whether you’re planning your own wedding or are just a fan of all things nuptial, here’s what you can expect to see in the coming year.
1. Micro Weddings
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many couples are opting for smaller, more intimate weddings. These “micro weddings” often have guest lists of 50 people or fewer and prioritize quality over quantity. With smaller guest lists, couples have more flexibility in their venue choices and can opt for more unique or personalized spaces.
Couples are increasingly seeking out ways to make their weddings more sustainable and eco-friendly. This could include using locally-sourced and in-season flowers, serving locally-grown and organic food, and choosing venues and vendors with a commitment to sustainability. This one might be our favorite wedding trend of all. We feel that it’s becoming increasingly important to focus on quality over quantity when it comes to weddings.
3. Creative Dinner Options
Gone are the days of the traditional plated dinner. Instead, couples are opting for more personalized and interactive food and drink experiences. This could include food trucks, interactive food stations, and signature cocktails. We’ve seen everything from specialty cotton candy and snow cones to fully organic and gluten free grazing tables over the last few months.
4. The Wedding Dress
Wedding dresses are always evolving, and 2023 is no exception. Expect to see a range of styles, from traditional ballgowns to more bohemian, laid-back looks. Separates, such as skirts and skirts, are also becoming increasingly popular, as they offer more versatility and allow brides to switch up their look for different parts of the day.
5. Non-Traditional Wedding Venues
Couples are increasingly seeking out unique and non-traditional venues for their weddings. This could include anything from industrial warehouses to museums to outdoor locations. The trend towards more unique venues allows couples to personalize their big day and create a one-of-a-kind experience for themselves and their guests.
Overall, 2023 is shaping up to be a year of personalization, sustainability, and intimacy in the world of weddings. Whatever your style or vision for your big day, there’s sure to be a trend that speaks to you.
