No detail is too small, the full list of what to anticipate for 2023 wedding trends is right at your fingertips.

Outdoor Venues

It might be the lasting effects of the pandemic or the lush greenery, but outdoor weddings are in. Outdoor space is a luxury many won’t take for granted again. Being in the fresh outdoors while saying the special “I do’s” is sure to make a stunning wedding.

Whether it’s a backyard, winery, or even a national park, taking advantage of the natural beauty around you is sure to make for an unforgettable day.


This trend has grown over the last few years as people are seeing the value in simplicity. This ranges from decor to guests.

Minimalist is the new extravagant, making for a stunning design if approached correctly. This tends to fall into the rustic decor style with a simplistic old timey feel.

Weddings can be expensive, but this approach means you can get the stunning look while maintaining a healthy budget. Because of the pandemic, more and more brides have taken the intimate approach, inviting only close family and friends and keeping it small.

While this may be one of the many 2023 wedding trends, we expect this to last beyond next year.. Minimize your big day and you’ll feel the maximum effects.

Lace, Lace, and Lace

Popular in the 1950s, lace is making a comeback. Lace was often seen on strapless dresses or those with sweetheart necklines. Now it has become increasingly used on different kinds of necklines including:

  • High neck
  • Off the shoulder
  • Long sleeve

Lace adds a touch of elegance to any wedding dress. We expect to see more lace accents in 2023 weddings, from dresses to decor.

Eco-Friendly Weddings

As climate change becomes a bigger issue, there is an increasing demand for eco-friendly weddings. This can include anything from recycled decor, locally sourced food, and even sustainable wedding rings.

Excitingly, more companies are offering eco-friendly options for couples to incorporate into their wedding day. This not only helps the environment but also adds a unique touch to your big day.

The Detail Is in the Ring

Unique and personalized rings have always been in style, but 2023 wedding trends are sure to feature rings with even more creativity. Engravings, birthstones, colored diamonds, and unconventional shapes all make for a one-of-a-kind ring that represents your love story.

These new shapes are more prevalent as a proclamation of love than ever, and they’re projected to remain popular in the coming years. Unsure of what to get for the groom’s wedding band? Check out our blog predicting popular wedding bands for men.
