Wedding trends are continuously evolving, influenced by the societal changes and the collective mood of the moment. As we step into 2023, weddings are becoming more unique, personal and focused on creating unforgettable experiences. Here are some of the top wedding trends to look out for this year, particularly for those planning a destination wedding.

1. Intimate and Micro-Weddings

The pandemic has left a significant mark on wedding trends, with intimate and micro-weddings becoming increasingly popular.

This trend is continuing into 2023, with couples favouring smaller, more personal celebrations over grand events. This shift allows couples to invest more in their guests’ experiences, offering bespoke menus, luxury accommodations, and personalised touches that make their celebration truly unique.

2. Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Weddings

With increased awareness about environmental impact, more couples are seeking sustainable options for their weddings. T

his trend can range from choosing locally-sourced foods and flowers to using digital invitations to reduce paper waste.

In 2023, expect to see more eco-friendly weddings, with couples carefully choosing vendors that align with their values.

3. Week-Long Wedding Celebrations

As travel becomes easier, couples planning destination weddings are extending their celebrations over a week or a long weekend.

This trend allows guests to explore the destination, bond with each other, and make the most of their travel.

Expect to see more of such week-long wedding festivities, with activities and events planned around the actual wedding day.

4. Unique Venues

Couples are moving away from traditional wedding venues and instead choosing unique locations that hold personal significance.

This could be a historic mansion, a charming vineyard, or even a beachfront villa.

Spain, with its diverse landscapes and stunning venues, is the perfect place to find a venue that reflects your personal style and story.

5. Wellness-Focused Celebrations

Wellness is a trend that’s permeating every aspect of our lives, and weddings are no exception.

Expect to see more wellness-focused elements in weddings, such as yoga sessions for the bridal party, wellness retreats for guests, and healthy, locally-sourced menus.

6. Embracing Local Culture and Traditions

For destination weddings, there’s a growing trend to incorporate local culture and traditions into the celebration.

This could mean serving traditional Spanish cuisine, including a flamenco performance, or even hosting your wedding at a historic Spanish venue.

7. Bold Colour Palettes

In terms of decor, couples are embracing bold, vibrant colour palettes.

Expect to see lots of rich, saturated colours, from warm terracottas and mustards to jewel-toned blues and purples.

This trend is all about reflecting the couple’s personality and creating a visually stunning celebration.

8. Tech Integration

Technology will continue to play a big role in weddings in 2023.

From digital invitations and live-streaming services to drone photography and customised wedding websites, technology is helping couples plan, celebrate and capture their big day in innovative ways.
