Micro weddings and intimate ceremonies

Although the pandemic and lockdowns are a thing of the past, it seems that intimate weddings are here to stay. While plenty of couples are still opting for grand affairs, the magic of the micro wedding remains ever so popular, with more and more couples dwindling down their guest lists to just their nearest and dearest for a more intimate celebration. But let us remind you, this doesn’t mean that your wedding has to be any less boujee, beautiful or luxe! If you’re looking to scale down from a 200 person fiesta to a quaint 20 guest soiree, that just means more cash to splash on those finer details to create your ultimate wedding day – we’re talking platinum drinks packages, all of the florals, custom signage, and maybe even a gelato cart!

If we’re talking your language, consider cutting your guest list and opting for an elopement or wedding that is stripped back, special, and full of love in 2023.

Multiple day celebrations

Your wedding day has got to be one of the most special, important days of your life, so why limit it to just one day?! 2023 is the year that multiple day celebrations come in full force, letting you and your wedding party soak up all of the fun that being wed has to offer. We’re talking welcome parties, bridal party brunches, and recovery lunches with the entire squad to enjoy each and every minute that this experience has to offer. With that being said, grab a few iconic outfits, plan some memorable games, get the drinks flowing, and don’t forget to hit record on that Tik Tok you’ve been dying to make.  While you’re bound to be exhausted and potentially have some very sore feet, you’ll be glad you made the most of what is sure to be the most amazing weekend of your life!

Destination weddings

With international holiday season looming and many of us itching for a vacation, it’s no shock that plenty of couples are packing their bags and heading out of town for memorable destination weddings. Think the Italian coast, Bali, Spain or even more local hotspots like Byron Bay, places where you have the opportunity to bring your nearest and dearest and say I do in epic fashion.

It’s not uncommon for lovers who are saying yes to a destination affair to narrow down their guestlist to a small crowd in favour of using those extra funds to host more fun, exciting activities throughout the weekend. This is where those multiple day celebrations come in again! Undoubtedly, you’ll be enjoying pool parties, winery lunches, shopping days, and recovery brunches overlooking some amazing views.

Destination weddings are the perfect opportunity to explore a new, beautiful place, take a well deserved break from work, and tie the knot, all while surrounded by your favourite people – it’s no wonder these weddings have skyrocketed in popularity!

Floristry: Anatomy of Flowers

Colour pop

Goodbye nudes and neutrals, and hello bold, bright and colourful! In 2023, we’re seeing an influx in all things colour, texture and pattern in all aspects of the wedding day. From playful wedding party outfits, to lush florals and styling, custom cakes, and everything in between, this trend is off with a bang and creating some unforgettable aesthetics for couples. This trend works perfectly in a variety of settings, whether it be blank canvas venues like Two Ton Max who are primed to host a world of colour against their crisp white walls, or outdoor garden parties where the greenery and blue skies provide the ultimate backdrop for every shade of the rainbow. We can’t wait to see how this year’s couples incorporate shades of pink, yellow, orange, and blue, just to name a few, into their big day, and we have no doubt it’s a trend that’s here to stay.

Outfit changes

Outfit changes may have always been a popular choice for many brides and grooms, but there’s something in the water this year, and this is a trend that has truly taken over. While many may ask, why would you want an outfit change for your wedding day when you may have already spent so much on one outfit? We say, why not? There’s something so fun about showing up at your reception decked out in a unique outfit, accessory, or pair of shoes  that no one is expecting. It adds to the excitement of the evening, creates some iconic photo moments, and means you get to look twice as fabulous! Some of the flawless outfits we’ve seen come to fruition include mini dresses adorning sassy bows, fringe galore, and plenty of ruffles, plus sparkly suits, and even a swap to custom sneakers so that you can dance all night long. When it comes to adding a second (or even third!) outfit into your wedding day, it’s always a yes from us!

We’re huge advocates for making your wedding day one that you’ll never forget, and that can include plenty of awesome additions, as mentioned above. If you’re saying I do in 2023, do some research, scour Pinterest, and see how you can take your day to the next level with the help of a few cheeky trending topics. We can’t wait to see the photos!
