One of the biggest trends of 2023 are colorful weddings!  Couples are aiming for bold, vibrant color palettes. From bright pinks and oranges to bold blues and greens, couples are looking for ways to make their wedding day stand out. Couples are combining different shades and patterns to create a unique look.  Maximalism at its finest!  For a more classic look, subtle pastels are still popular. Soft shades of lavender, peach and mint green are a great option for a timeless look. For a more modern twist, couples can opt for metallics such as gold, silver and rose gold. These shades give a glamorous touch to any wedding.

Bold and daring designs are popular, with many brides opting for dramatic silhouettes and intricate detailing. Lace is also in high demand, from the veil to the dress! For a more traditional look, the classic A-line dress remains as an excellent choice. For a unique approach, brides can opt for a high-low dress or a jumpsuit. These styles are perfect for making a statement! 


Flowers are an important piece in the design process to transform spaces into an experience. Monochromatic bouquets are a great choice. Using a single color for the entire bouquet creates a timeless and elegant look. For a more modern twist, aim for wild and eclectic bouquets full of texture and color. Want to save money or a local business, utilize local, seasonal flowers. This is a great way to cut costs and still have a stunning a bouquet. Dried and preserved flowers are beginning to get recognition for adding texture and dimension to a bouquet that will last a lifetime.

Reception Vibes

Traditional white tents for outdoor weddings adds a timeless look and can be dressed up with lights and decorations. Industrial themed weddings are great for a winter wedding and can be achieved with exposed brick walls, metal accents and rustic furniture.

If you want to take dinner to another level, have a food truck! These mobile eateries are perfect for providing guests with a unique and delicious meal. The reception is the last place everyone celebrates so it is only right to take it up a notch with a custom dance floor, after dinner! Checkered patterns, LED lights, and florals have transformed the dance floor into a memory that’ll last forever. 

Dessert Options

Couples are becoming more interested in having a dessert table! They want to give their guests fun options and are moving away from the traditional cake. Custom cookies, personal pies, and mini cheesecake bites are seen often.

Dessert tables may be increasing in popularity but wedding cakes are still in! Many are shying away from the typical traditional cake and are choosing more unique styles like naked cakes and geometric shapes. It is a great way to add an element of fun and creativity. Instead of having the florist add flowers, bakers are creating edible flowers made from sugar. These delicate,  edible flowers are a great way to make the cake look extra special.
