If you’re a bride keeping on top of her wedding admin, you’ll know that wedding trends completely change from year to year. Whether you want your wedding to be full of the latest trends – or you’re just looking for inspiration before you get started on planning the big day – here are just some of the wedding ideas that are expected to blow up this coming year.
While runway styles are known to quickly change from season to season, engagement ring trends usually move a lot slower. Choosing the right engagement ring can be tricky, so, stay on trend by adding a splash of colour from emeralds to opals, and choosing one of the beautiful vintage rings that are also making a comeback. The best part? You can also mix up the styles by choosing a totally different wedding band!
Smaller guest lists
As a result of Covid-19 and lockdowns, many brides-to-be were forced to trim down their guest list and celebrate their big day with a smaller crowd. However, it seems like micro weddings are here to stay! 2023 will be the year of getting hitched in a smaller more intimate celebration filled with just your closest family and friends. And there are many benefits to a smaller wedding, as well. Not only are they a surefire way to trim your wedding budget, but they can also be a way to recentre your planning and instead focus on what’s really important to you… yes, that does mean that swoony venue that always seems to pop up in your daydreams!
With traditional colour schemes out the window for 2023 weddings, more and more couples are instead opting to add a pop of colour to their special day. Popular choices include:
- Deep emerald green for a dreamy fairytale romance
- White for the bride and dark black for the bridesmaids to make your day one to remember
- Purple for the ultimate rich romantic wedding hue!
By just adding colour through textiles, decor pieces, or even the suits of the groom’s men, you can make sure your wedding truly pops in the photographs for the years to come!
Speaking of photographs, while professional photographers have previously been all the rage for weddings, more and more couples are opting to give disposable cameras to friends and family to capture a more unique look on their big day. Disposable cameras are great for capturing special moments that might happen in the background (and out of sight of the professionals), meaning your wedding album can truly encapsulate everything that happened on your wedding day.
Planning your perfect day can be tricky. However, with these top wedding trends for 2023, you’re guaranteed to have a wedding day you’ll always remember – as well as one that’s bang on trend!
