2022 is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean weddings are ending any time soon! Instead, we’ll ring in a new year of beautiful new celebrations with themes that are both nostalgic and trendy. If you’re looking for wedding themes for 2023, you’ve come to the right place—find an idea that suits your wedding day style!
Bringing Back the 80s
With Stranger Things taking the world by storm, one thing is for certain: the 80s are back. While you may not bring legwarmers into your wedding venue, there are plenty of 80s-inspired ideas that you can incorporate into your ceremony.
You might remember a certain iconic puffy wedding dress (worn by one Princess Diana)—today, modern puff sleeve wedding dresses are in style and turning heads.
Your hair is up to you (although we might caution you against a mullet)! If you want a little help, we have incredible bridal hair accessories for you to really elevate your look.
Keeping in line with the resurgence of 80s love, bright colors are in style once again! You may remember the uptick in 90s fashion over the last few years, and this wedding theme idea continues down that path. From poppy purples to breathtaking blues, adorn your bridesmaids in bright colors to dazzle the senses!
A unique look is one thing, but what about unique activities? There’s a growing trend of incorporating more than dance moves during wedding receptions—here are a few ideas:
From cornhole to giant Jenga, lawn games are a great way for everyone to break the ice and enjoy silly, outdoor fun. This won’t fit every wedding environment, but if it’s right for you, it will be perfect.
Tarot Card Reader
Tarot cards get everyone excited, whether they believe them to be a real fortune or a goofy activity. Start your marriage off right and draw some good cards!
There are a lot of generic party favors, but a unique caricature isn’t one of them! Give all your guests something to remember the day by, and something they can laugh about for years to come.
Sustainability’s in Style
One of the best themes for a 2023 wedding is a sustainability theme. Weddings have the potential to use up a lot of resources, but it’s easier than ever to be mindful and thoughtful when planning the celebration.
One of the simplest ways to promote sustainability at your wedding is to choose local flowers that are in-season. This supports local farmers while cutting down on the amount of fuel needed to get florals from their place of origin to your wedding.
Additionally, we recommend renting everything you can. Instead of buying disposable odds and ends to fill your wedding venue, use a rental company who already has everything you need to create a beautiful wedding. You’ll avoid waste and you won’t have excess decor lying around after the ceremony!
Now that you know some of the popular wedding themes for 2023, remember that you can always choose a theme that isn’t currently trending. If there’s a style from a past era that speaks to you, you should go for it! Your friends here at The Wedding Shoppe will do everything we can to accommodate you, no matter what look you’re after for your special day.
