Here’s an inside look into the hottest wedding trends we expect to see this year. 2023 seems to be all about meaningful experiences, more travel, and a color palette that may surprise you.
1. Rust Married
According to Pinterest Predicts, shades of sienna and terracotta will be making an appearance at weddings this year. Searches for “burnt orange wedding theme” are up almost 700% and “copper saree” is up almost 300%. Neutrals are always beautiful, but expect to see some pops of orange in 2023 weddings.
2. Pack Your Bags
A large majority of our couples across the US are opting for a multi day destination wedding over a one day event in their hometown. There is an emphasis being placed on celebrating their love with a smaller guest list in a remote destination. Some also opt for pre/post wedding festivities to take place locally, while tying the knot in a different city.
3. Authentically “us”
According to Zola’s 2023 first look report about wedding trends, 27% of couples are creating themes that are a reflection of who they are as a couple. Surveyed couples are envisioning their wedding day to have numerous elements they feel personally aligned with. This trend is present in everything from the food served, the feel of the venue, to choosing someone they know to officiate the ceremony.
4. Private Moments
As wedding day can often feel chaotic, more couples are working with their Salud planners to add in moments of stillness with their partner on wedding day. We see this in the form of getting ready together before the ceremony or a private last dance. Couples are thinking about how to intentionally create how they want to feel and remember the day for years to come.
5. Money Matters
Both Pinterest and Zola report Gen X and Millennials are searching for ways to save and budget. As the cost of living and hosting weddings go up across the country, more couple are researching how to save and spend money, and set themselves up for success post wedding. We see this most frequently in the shift from traditional wedding registries to cash or honeymoon funds.
