The latest Bridal Fashion Week showcased billowing sleeves, sheer fabrics, detachable skirts, bows, and 3-D applique on couture pieces. Brides in 2023 are all about making statements and showing confidence and uniqueness.
After two years of pandemic sweat pants and cotton V-necks, men are ready to dress to the nines for their big day and feel like a million bucks. We see bold watches, edgy pocket squares, and pops of color. For the more casual grooms, we’re seeing a variety of suits in blues and greens paired with delicate silver accessories.
We predict this to be the year where brides and grooms take advantage of natural beauty and put a lot of energy into choosing the perfect spot to say “I do.”
Many couples want their wedding to feel like a turn back in time. We’re seeing Great Gatsby and Old Hollywood themes with glam galore. Think low updos, red lipstick, classic black and white tuxes, and feathered centerpieces. Others want their cake to resemble a sand castle to match their beach theme.
We’re seeing a lot of decked-out photo booths this year with the fanciest of props. Think of an ivy or rose wall as the backdrop with the couple’s initials spelled out in a cool font and lit up in LED lights. For props, think gorgeous masquerade accessories embellished in crystals and professional signage. Luxury wedding booths are the perfect way to say, “Hey, I’m fancy and fun at the same time!”
An open-air tent is a great way to have an outdoor feel while being protected from the elements. You might even decide to have one covered section and one fully open section if your venue has a view you don’t want your guests to miss.
Everyone loves florals and the delightful fragrance they grace a room with. We are seeing a lot of requests for hanging florals and large floral installations suspended above tables.
Many of our couples are going so big on the bridal dresses and floral arrangements that they’re seeking to choose a more minimal bouquet to complement the other elements. We see a lot of handhelds with dainty blooms like lilac, lily of the valley, astilbe, baby’s breath, and lavender.
A few years ago, there was Hailey Beiber’s “Till Death do us Part” embroidered veil. Last year, there was Kourtney Kardashian’s veil embroidered with the Virgin Mary. In 2023, the embroidered sentiments will live on. We’ll see sweet messages on gloves, handkerchiefs, veils, dresses, and more. We love good embroidery that becomes a keepsake to frame and reflects on for years to come.
