2023 Wedding Trends

This year it's all about sustainability, the great outdoors and bold colours. Here's a round up of this year's predicted wedding trends.

Intimate Weddings

With the ongoing impact of the dreaded 'C word' (you know which one I'm talking about!), many couples are opting for smaller, more intimate weddings rather than large, grand affairs. Micro Weddings and elopements are becoming increasingly popular.

Outdoor Weddings

Since the UK Government legalised outdoor ceremonies last year, many couples are opting for outdoor weddings. Whether it be in an English country garden, the middle of a forest or a beach, outdoor weddings offer a more relaxed and natural setting and give more room for creative décor and lighting.

Sustainable Weddings

More and more couples are opting for eco-friendly and sustainable practices in their weddings, such as using locally sourced and in-season flowers, renting or buying second-hand décor, and opting for plant-based menus.

Many couples are choosing to personalise their weddings to reflect their unique personalities and styles, whether it be through unique wedding favours, signature cocktails, or unique décor and lighting.

Food and drink

Food and drink will continue to be an important element of weddings. The trend will be to focus on local and seasonal ingredients and to provide a unique and memorable experience for guests with food and drink stations, interactive elements, and unique food trucks.

Multi-day wedding events

Many couples are choosing to extend their wedding celebrations with post-wedding events, such as brunch or a day-after BBQ.

Vibrant colour palettes

2023 will be the year of bright, bold, and vibrant colour palettes. Couples will be drawn to the use of bright and bold colours, such as oranges, yellows, and pinks.
