Your big day is fast approaching, a time to celebrate the love you and your partner share with the people who mean the most to you. While it’s a joyous time, it can also be a stressful one as you try to plan an event representing you, your partner, and your relationship. If you’re running low on inspiration, consider incorporating one or more of these 2023 wedding trends into your nuptials.
It’s your special day, so why not make the most of it? A midday ceremony lets you celebrate almost all day, not just the tail end of it. This kind of all-day celebration, popularized in the early 20th century, is so hot right now. If it’s good enough for iconic couples like Jackie and John F. Kennedy and Princess William and Kate, it’s good enough for you.
Wake up to get dressed and enjoy mimosas or bloody marys with your wedding party before arriving at your venue to tie the knot. Enjoy a lavish lunch with all your guests, retire to your hotel for a power nap, then hit the evening reception with anyone who has the staying power.
MULTIDAY Destination Events
If you really want to make the most of your nuptials, embrace the new trend for multiday destination events. After years of lockdowns and border closures, couples want to travel and bring their nearest and dearest along with them. These wedding events are usually intimate, with multiple days of activities before and after the ceremony. Think winery tours, beach cabana days, game nights, and outdoor movie screenings to create a sense of community between guests.
A Rainbow of Color
As we emerge from the darkness of the pandemic, couples are getting colorful. And not just with gentle pastels, but with vibrant saturated hues, and lots of them. Instead of picking one or two signature colors, modern couples are embracing a rainbow of colors with mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses, boldly colored suits, and bouquets of vividly colored mixed blooms. A dessert table filled with brightly colored candies and a bar serving colorful cocktails are two more ways to amp up the color on your big day.
Over-the-Top Cakes and Toppers
In 2023, wedding cakes are becoming true showstoppers. Think multitier creations with elaborate, intricate decorative details. While classic vanilla and chocolate are always popular, couples are selecting more creative flavors like yuzu cardamom, coconut guava, and hazelnut praline. They’re also thinking outside the box with unique toppers like champagne ganache strawberry frosting. Speaking of toppers, these are also reflecting couples more. Bespoke creations made to look like the happy couple, featuring references to their hobbies and pets, are all the rage.
