Popular Fashion at Weddings

Weddings are a great opportunity to express your personal style and celebrate your love with your partner. Whether you are a bride, a groom, a guest, or a member of the wedding party, you want to look your best and feel comfortable on the big day. But what are the latest trends in wedding fashion that you should know about? Here are some of the most popular fashion trends for weddings in 2023, according to the experts.

The 80s Are Back

If you love retro vibes and dramatic details, you will be happy to know that the 80s are making a comeback in wedding fashion. Puff sleeves, ruffles, lace, and sequins are some of the elements that evoke the glamorous decade. You can find these features on wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and even suits and jackets. The 80s-inspired wedding fashion is all about having fun and making a statement¹².

Bold and Playful Prints

Another way to add some personality and flair to your wedding outfit is to opt for bold and playful prints. Floral prints are always a classic choice for weddings, but you can also experiment with other patterns, such as polka dots, stripes, animal prints, or geometric shapes. Prints can be incorporated on dresses, skirts, tops, accessories, or even shoes. You can mix and match prints for a more eclectic look, or keep it simple with one statement piece¹³.

Not-So-Plain and Simple

If you prefer a more minimalist and modern style, you can still find plenty of options that are not-so-plain and simple. Wedding dresses and suits that feature sleek silhouettes, clean lines, and subtle details are perfect for the contemporary bride or groom. You can also add some interest with cut-outs, slits, asymmetrical hems, or unexpected fabrics¹⁴⁵.

Cool Tones

When it comes to wedding colours, cool tones are dominating the scene in 2023. Shades of blue, green, purple, and silver are popular choices for wedding dresses, suits, bridesmaid dresses, and accessories. Cool tones can create a soothing and sophisticated atmosphere for your wedding, as well as complement different skin tones and hair colors¹⁶.

New Bohemian Bride

If you love the bohemian style, you will be glad to know that it is still going strong in 2023. However, the new bohemian bride is not afraid to mix things up and add some edge to her look. Think crochet dresses with leather jackets, floral crowns with chunky boots, or lace gowns with denim vests. The new bohemian bride is all about expressing her individuality and creativity¹ .

Short Dresses for the Ceremony

One of the most surprising trends for 2023 is short dresses for the ceremony. Many brides are opting for shorter hemlines for their wedding dresses, either as their main dress or as a second dress for the reception. Short dresses can be fun, flirty, and practical for dancing and moving around. They can also showcase your legs and shoes¹ .
