While some things never go out of style, like having a beautiful white dress or a cake with multiple tiers, other things are always changing. Check out what experts are predicting the biggest wedding trends will be for 2023.

Decor Trends

Statement backdrops are going to be a big trend at weddings in the coming year. This is a great way to make a bold statement and add some personality to your wedding décor. If you want something truly unique, you can even have a custom backdrop made.

Non-traditional materials like wood, metal, or even acrylic are all fun ways to play with your backdrop. Adding some texture and interest to your wedding décor can make a big difference in decorating and your photos.

Incorporating greenery into your wedding décor is on trend for 2022 and into 2023. This can be done in a number of ways, such as using garlands, wreaths, or even potted plants. Greenery can add a touch of nature to your décor and make it more organic and beautiful.

Light-up letters and glow words have been in style and remain the trend into 2023. Using these in your wedding décor is a great way to add some fun to your wedding or reception. You can use letters to spell out things like “love” or your initials or new last name. You can also get creative and use them to spell out words that have special meaning to you, and the best part is you can incorporate it into your new home after the wedding.

And what else…

Reception Entertainment: In recent years, there has been a trend towards more unique and interactive reception entertainment. This can include everything from photo booths to magicians to acrobats. Couples are looking for ways to keep their guests entertained and engaged throughout the night.

Food Trends: There is also a trend toward more unique and artisanal food at weddings. Couples are working with local chefs to create custom menus that reflect their personal taste. They are also incorporating more family recipes into the wedding menu.

Decor Trends: Wedding decor is becoming more personal and unique. Couples are incorporating their own style into the wedding decorations, rather than following traditional trends. This can include anything from DIY projects to vintage finds.

Wedding Venues: Venues are becoming more diverse, as couples are looking for unique places to hold their wedding. Popular venues include barns, gardens, conservatories, historic homes, and even warehouses.

Dramatic Wedding Gowns

Over the past few years, there has been a trend towards more simple and understated wedding gowns. However, it seems that this trend is now shifting back towards more dramatic and over-the-top gowns. A way people have been achieving this dramatic wedding gown look is with tulle. It can be used to create a full skirt with lots of volume, or it can be used to create a more fitted look. Tulle can also be decorated with embroidery, beads, or sequins to add even more drama to a dress. While tulle has been disparaged in the past, it’s making its way back with an overall 80s trend penetrating fashion and decorating.

Another trend for 2023 is with the use of lace. Today, there are many different types of lace available, from delicate vintage lace to modern geometric lace. Lace can be used on its own or combined with other fabrics, such as tulle or satin, to create a truly unique look.

Males of Honor

There’s a new wedding trend on the rise, and it’s all about the males of honor. More and more couples are choosing to have their male friends stand up with them on their big day instead of the traditional bridesmaids.

Males of honor can add a fun and unique twist to your wedding party. They can wear matching tuxedos or suits with the rest of the groomsmen, or they can sport a more casual look. Either way, they’ll be sure to stand out.

Your males of honor can also help with all sorts of wedding tasks, from planning the bachelorette party to giving you away at the ceremony. They’ll be there to support you every step of the way.

Sustainable Weddings

Couples are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and be more environmentally friendly, so sustainable weddings are increasing in popularity.

There are a few different ways to have a sustainable wedding. One way is to use local, seasonal, and organic flowers. This cuts down on the amount of pesticides used and the carbon emissions from transportation. Another way is to choose recycled or upcycled decorations. This could include using mason jars as vases or using old books as table runners.

Another way couples have changed things to make a wedding sustainable is by having a “green” wedding dress. This could mean choosing a dress made from sustainable materials such as bamboo or organic cotton. It could also mean choosing a second-hand dress or renting a dress instead of buying one.
