Now that restrictions from the pandemic have almost completely been lifted this year, 2023 is expected to be a busy year of Destination weddings. We no longer need to hold small in-person or virtual ceremonies, so the possibilities for your perfect wedding celebration are endless. 2022 has been a wedding-packed year that has laid the foundation for exciting and innovative ideas that could carry on into the next year. From breaking away from traditional wedding styles to basing your theme on pop culture to opting for a night-time celebration, these top 2023 wedding trends can offer a refreshing twist to your big day.
Rustic ceremonies were on their way out and minimal ones were on their way in. As we approach the end of 2022 and get ready to usher in a new year, we should also prepare to watch some new trends rise. Here are the trends we think will be taking over the wedding world in 2023
Just like most things in the wedding world, photography styles are heavily influenced by trends. Back in the birth age of Pinterest, everyone was loving the look of sepia-toned photos and unconventional angles. A few years after that, it seems we collectively moved on to the “bright and airy” style of photography, focusing on natural soft lighting and lots of poses.
But the latest era of wedding photography is all about candid and natural light. Typically described as editorial or documentary photography, this style nixes poses and focuses on imperfections. Couples are no longer concerned about everything looking perfect and are focusing more on having their photographers capture the day with minimal direction or interruptions.
On a similar note, blur-motion photography, which captures movement, is about to become very popular.
Mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses will go a step further.
In 2023 Bridesmaids will be given a lot more freedom when it comes to choosing their dresses. Recently, we have seen a lot more bridal parties with mismatched colors, patterns, styles, etc.
There’s been a shift towards destination weddings ever since the 2020 coronavirus restrictions began lifting.
Now more than ever, couples are wanting to travel to far-off destinations and celebrate their nuptials abroad.
Plus, with the Euro and US dollar currently almost equivalent in value, we will be seeing a large increase in European destination weddings in 2023.
