As a wedding photographer who has worked with many couples over the years, I have seen firsthand how wedding trends change and evolve with time.
In this article, I will share the top five wedding trends that have a high chance of making a great come back and be popular in 2023.
1. Intimate Weddings
In recent years, the trend of having a smaller and more intimate wedding has been growing, and I believe this trend will continue in 2023. Couples are opting for smaller guest lists, which allows them to spend more time with their loved ones and create a more personal and intimate experience. Intimate weddings also tend to be more cost-effective, allowing couples to spend more on other aspects of their wedding, such as the photography or the venue.
2. Creative Food and Beverage Options
In 2023, couples are looking to impress their guests with unique and creative food and beverage options. From interactive food stations and ice cream trucks to craft mocktails, couples are opting for fun and unexpected ways to serve their guests. This trend allows couples to showcase their personalities and tastes, and it also creates a memorable experience for their guests. Additionally, couples are incorporating local and seasonal ingredients into their menus, which not only supports local businesses but also adds a personalised touch to their wedding day.
3. Digital Invitations
With the rise of technology, digital invitations have become a popular trend in the wedding industry. Digital invitations are not only cost-effective, but they are also eco-friendly and convenient. Many couples are also using social media to create personalised invitations that reflect their unique personalities and styles.
4. BOLD COLOURS
This year, bold colours are set to make a comeback. Couples are moving away from traditional pastels and opting for bright and bold colour palettes that reflect their personalities and add a pop of colour to their wedding day. Bold colour choices can be incorporated into the wedding decor, flowers, and even the bride's dress.
5. UNCONVENTIONAL VENUES
Finally, couples will be looking for unique and unconventional wedding venues. From museums and art galleries to warehouses and rooftops, couples are opting for venues that reflect their personalities and offer a one-of-a-kind experience for their guests. These venues provide a great backdrop for wedding photography, and they offer endless opportunities for creative and unique photos.
In conclusion, 2023 is set to be an exciting year for weddings, with couples opting for smaller, more intimate weddings, incorporating creative food elements, using digital invitations, embracing bold colours, and choosing unconventional venues. As a wedding photographer, I am excited to capture these trends and create beautiful memories for couples that will last a lifetime. - Don't forget to get in touch!
