Maximalism, Formality, and More

Hey, hey, hey people! Are you planning a wedding in the near future? Then you'll want to know about the latest wedding trends that are on the rise. From bold color schemes to formal dress codes, here are some of top wedding trends I have been seeing and that you need to know.

More is More: Maximalism is In

Recently, weddings were often understated affairs, with muted color palettes and minimalist decor. But in now, couples are embracing maximalism, and going all out with their weddings. This means bold, bright color schemes, big statement florals, and plenty of decorative accents. Think oversized floral arrangements, vibrant table settings, and elaborate backdrops. The key is to create a wedding that's visually impactful and unforgettable. Just like the the old say says " Go big or go home".

Formal Weddings are Back in Style

In recent years, as well, weddings have become more casual, with couples opting for relaxed dress codes and informal celebrations. But now, formal weddings are making a comeback. I am personally excited about this trend. As you know I am all about those classic movies, so this trends speaks to me personally. Couples are ready to up their game with all the glitz glamour of that old school wedding of the past. This means dressing up for the occasion, with black-tie attire for the wedding party and guests. The result is an elegant and sophisticated affair that's fit for a fairytale.

Pre-Ceremony Parties are a Must

Weddings are no longer just one-day events – they're multi-day celebrations that require plenty of pre-wedding festivities. Now pre-ceremony parties are a must, with everything from rehearsal dinners to welcome parties becoming more elaborate. This is a chance for couples to spend quality time with their loved ones before the big day, and to create unforgettable memories. I know that a big compliant I have heard from couples is that if they invite over 50 people they can't have decent conversation with the guest they have invited to their wedding. So I love this idea!

After Parties are Essential

Once the formalities are over, it's time to let loose and party. In 2023, after parties are an essential part of any wedding celebration. This means creating a separate space for guests to dance the night away, with plenty of music, drinks, and snacks. I am personally not in love with this, but it is definitely something I have been seeing. So for all you party people, this upcoming wedding season is for you!

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

Gone are the days when bridesmaids all had to wear the same dress in the same color. Mismatched bridesmaid dresses are the way to go now. I have seen this trend for awhile now, but it is very much mainstream now. This means allowing each bridesmaid to choose a dress that suits their individual style and body type, but with a cohesive color scheme and something they might wear more then once. The result is a more natural and relaxed look that's still elegant and sophisticated.

Big and Bold Color Schemes

Couples are embracing vibrant hues, contrasting color combinations, neon lights, and unexpected color accents. Think tangerine and turquoise for some contrasting color combinations and some rich jewel tones like deep purple, emerald green and ruby red. These colors exude luxury and create a sense of opulence, making a statement as soon as your guests arrive and if you want to go a little crazy add some neon sighs to really up the ante.


So there you have it – the top wedding trends up and coming. Whether you're planning a wedding or just love to stay up to date on the latest trends, I hope these ideas will inspire you. From maximalism to formal dress codes, there are plenty of ways to make your wedding a celebration to remember.
