It’s still early on in the new year, so it’s not too late to jump on board the latest 2023 wedding trends for this year! Whether you’re planning your own wedding, or have a friend or family member who is, these wedding trends are great to keep in mind.
- Wedding Registries that don’t focus on physical items as much. With Covid, the focus has shifted to the online shopping space. Couples might opt for things to make their home space more comfortable, as well as vouchers for donations to charities as opposed to actual items for the home.
- Balloon arches and decor are on their way out: Instead, they’re being replaced with fresh flowers and flower installations instead.
- More weekday weddings: With Covid and the need to push out wedding dates, more and more couples have chosen weekday weddings instead, and some vendors will offer discounts to work with couples during the week instead of the weekend.
- Electronic save the dates and invitations: 2021 saw the rise of electronic invitations since guest lists and dates were uncertain until close to the wedding date. Electronic save-the-dates and invitations will continue to be popular for 2022 as couples focus their budget on the wedding day experience and are conscious about waste.
- Sparkler tunnels are staying: Many couples choose to be sent off through a sparkler tunnel at the end of their wedding night, and that trend’s not going anywhere any time soon. Sparklers started as a wedding trend but have made the transition to a wedding classic as couples view them as timeless.
- Transformable wedding dresses: a dress that can be transformed into multiple different looks or styles, usually by adding or removing layers, sleeves, or other elements. This means you can switch up your look throughout the day and evening, depending on your mood and the events you have planned.
They allow you to get multiple looks in one dress, which is perfect if you want to change things up for your reception or after-party. They’re also a great way to add some versatility and creativity to your wedding look, and they’re perfect for brides who want to have some fun with their attire.
- Weddings that focus on sustainability: Younger generations are giving their attention to sustainability and doing their best to eliminate waste — even when it comes to their big day. Sustainability will gain even more popularity in 2022 with more to-be-weds pursuing deeper conversations about their environmental footprint with their planning team.
On that note, want some of our top tips for a sustainable wedding?
- Use eco-friendly decor. Look for decor made from sustainable materials, like bamboo or recycled paper, and consider using potted plants or flowers instead of cut ones to reduce waste.
- Choose vendors that are eco-conscious. Look for vendors who are committed to sustainability, like photographers who use digital cameras instead of film or bakers who use organic ingredients.
- Use eco-friendly invitations and stationery. Consider using recycled paper or digital invitations to reduce waste.
- Encourage guests to carpool or use public transportation. This will reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment.
- Consider making a donation to an environmental charity in lieu of favours. This is a great way to give back and make your wedding even more meaningful.
- Pick your wedding dress from a growing selection of sustainable wedding dresses.
