The countdown is on, 2023 is just around the corner and wedding planning is in full swing! Here are the top 10 wedding trends to keep an eye out for. 

1 Intimate Weddings 

How does this sound for a less stressful wedding day? Couples are opting for smaller, intimate weddings with only their closest family and friends. For some, the choice is about the pandemic still lingering. For others, it’s simply a more calm and manageable alternative to inviting everyone they know for a big event.

2. Outdoor Weddings

Social distancing certainly increased the number of outdoor weddings, and they’re becoming more and more popular. Imagine walking down the aisle surrounded by nature. Add some fairy lights or hanging lanterns and it’s a dreamy setting.

3. Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are becoming a popular option for couples who want to get married abroad. Travel restrictions are less of a consideration now, and making plans for flying off to Europe or a beach is making a comeback.

4. Eco-Friendly Weddings

A growing number of couples want to reduce their carbon footprint, so eco-friendly weddings are on the rise. From sustainable meals to edible wedding favors, there are so many fantastic ideas to go green with your wedding.

5. DIY Weddings

Consider saying, “I do” to doing it yourself! Pinterest and YouTube have made DIY weddings increasingly popular. Even if you only want to incorporate this idea for a few details, couples are DIYing everything from their invitations to their wedding decor. 

6. Food Trucks 

Food trucks are predicted to be an even more popular wedding trend in 2023. For one, they offer a unique and fun way to feed your guests. It’s a deliciously unexpected departure from the traditional wedding buffet and many food trucks are already prepared to serve large crowds. Not to mention the Instagram-worthy photo ops.

Photo booths are a great way to keep your guests entertained and capture some less formal moments. Everyone loves to wander over, choose a prop, and join the fun. Plus, the photos can double as wedding favors!
