OH MY GOSH what a year 2022 has been! Cannot believe it is almost over and New Years is vastly approaching us! For all those brides who felt that 2023 felt so far away… Well, its coming fast now and we are SO ready for it! We’ve complied a handful of much anticipated trends for this upcoming year. So get your Pinterest boards ready, here is The Official List of 2023 Wedding Trends!
1: Full Weekend Events
Lets just say we have the pandemic to thank for this influence and the trend of destination weddings and elopements. A similar trend we will FOR SURE be seeing in 2023 is full weekend or multi-day celebrations! More and more couples are taking advantage of these full weekend weddings as a way to make up for lost time with loved ones.
Needing ideas on what to plan for your full weekend event? Here are some ideas and itinerary!
Host a Welcome Party!
There is no better way to commemorate love than a welcome party or dinner to get the weekend started! This party is meant for having fun and socializing. The second day usually consist of an all day activity or adventure, followed by a rehearsal dinner in the evening. The third day includes the wedding ceremony and reception, while the fourth includes brunch and goodbyes.
This is all up to the bride and groom and how they wish to celebrate!
2: Flash Photography
Just like most things in the wedding world, photography styles are HEAVILY influenced by trends. Remember that flash on your disposable camera from the 90’s era? It’s truly the best! It’s all about candid, flash, motion blur. More and more brides are shifting away from “perfect” in many aspects of their wedding. I am FULLY ready for the more artsy, creative wedding photos captured with film than ever before!
And Just because its dark out, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on capturing all the fun, because Flash is back!! We love capturing the entire day .
Say yes to nighttime photos!
3: Color, Color, Color
Embrace bold colors!
Bold colors slowly crept up at the end of this years wedding season and guess what they are here to stay and I for one am LOVING every minute of it. We are seeing a lot of jewel tone colors like vibrant reds, yellows, purples, oranges and emerald green.
4: Audio Guestbooks
If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional guest book, look no further because this is for you! The audio guestbook phone is a great way to capture your guests messages. This is such a fun and authentic option!
Plus the messages only get better as the night goes on. We totally recommend an open bar for this one (you’ll thank us later)! For The Record is our local Las Vegas go-to for audio guestbook rentals!
5: Statement Pieces
Ahh the statement pieces are the ones that everyone will remember and talk about!
There are endless options for wedding statement pieces! Statement pieces can come in the form of a high fashion bridal gown, adding customizations to your bridal attire, or having an epic exit to end the night. They can be there to add glam, or they can be there to add meaning, or both! For more ideas to elevate your attire with a statement piece, check out our 5 Statement Wedding Accessories blog!
6. Hanging Installations
Speaking of statement pieces, our most trending 2023 trend so far has to be these epic hanging installations!! It is 100% our top request for 2023 & we absolutely understand why! They’re freaking gorgeous! And the top items to hang? Streamers, disco balls, lamps, or florals!
These hanging installations can be found incorporated in almost every aspect of the wedding, from ceremony arches and ceremony aisles, to above dance floors & the reception tables.
