There are a lot of trends we are seeing happening in weddings in 2023. All aspects of the wedding planning process are seeing new and innovative ideas across all spectrums. Here are some of our favorite and most popular tends in weddings for 2023.

Ceiling Instillations 2023 wedding trend

Ceiling Instillations

Couples are looking for a “wow” factor and ceiling instillations make that impression. Ceiling instillations are being seen over the dance floor and over the tables at the reception. As wedding décor moves in multi-dimensional directions, we can expect to see ceiling instillations for many seasons.

Dining Room Table Décor

As weddings have become smaller and more intimate in guest size, the tablescape decors have become more and more elevated. Couples want their guests to feel comfortable and relaxed at their weddings. One way to achieve this relaxed vibe is to make the tablescapes feel home like. This also works out great for the couple because the décor can be re-purposed in their own home after the wedding.

Pink weddings 2023 trend

Pink Weddings

Fans of “Steel Magnolias” rejoice because “Blush and Bashful” are back! The pink wedding is back. An overall trend is the return of the “feminine wedding.” We are seeing this in wedding dress styles and it is caring over to the décor and color palette. The wedding dress design is now the inspiration for décor and with light flowerly appliques all over bridal gowns….pink is a perfect complimentary color.

Everything is personalized in weddings now…including cocktails. Signature cocktails have always had their place during the cocktail hour, but now people are stepping it up with custom ice cubes, lavish garnishes, and unique ways of mixing the cocktails with smoke, dry ice and interesting containers.

Candid photos with heavy flash is a trend we are seeing as we view wedding galleries. It could compliment TikToc and other filters we see on photo apps but the photos are fun and your photographer doesn’t have to edit them…so they are loving this trend too!
