1. ECO-FRIENDLY Weddings

As people become more aware of their impact on the environment, eco­ friendly weddings are becoming increasingly popular. Couples are opting for sustainable wedding options, such as using biodegradable or recyclable materials, choosing local and organic food, and reducing waste.

While pastels and soft hues have been popular in recent years, 2023 is expected to see a shift towards bold and bright colours. Think bright pink, blues, greens, and yellows. These vibrant colours can add a sense of fun and energy to your wedding.

Gone are the days when weddings were held only in churches or reception halls. In 2023, couples are getting more creative with their wedding venues, opting for non traditional spaces such as parks, museums, or even private homes. This trend also ties in with the eco­ friendly trend, as outdoor weddings can help reduce the need for energy consumption in traditional venues.

Wedding attire is also expected to take a turn towards sustainability and uniqueness. Second-hand or vintage dresses, suits made from eco-friendly materials, and locally made accessories are just a few examples of sustainable wedding attire options.
Additionally, personalized touches such as custom embroidery or unique patterns are also on-trend.


Couples are looking for ways to make their wedding day more interactive and memorable for their guests.
This can include fun and unique entertainment options, interactive food stations, or even DIV wedding favours. The goal is to create a fun and engaging experience for guests to enjoy and remember.

6. Smaller and more intimate weddings

Due to the pandemic, many couples have had to scale back their wedding plan and pt for smaller, more intimate ceremonies. This trend is expected to continue into 2023, as couples choose to prioritise quality time with their closest friends and family over a larger guest list.
