Queer, trans and same-sex couples will increasingly opt for attire that suits their gender expression, not what’s expected of them based on family traditions or societal expectations. While some brides, grooms and marriers may still choose to wear a three-piece suit or a gown and veil, we anticipate that an increasing number of LGBTQ+ couples will push wedding clothing boundaries much further, and we’re so here for that.
Colored gemstones for engagement and wedding rings. I’m a big fan of the unique and ethically sourced stones that Equally Wed Platinum preferred jeweler and Certified LGBTQ+ inclusive business Emily Chelsea Jewelry uses in their custom rings.
Another big 2023 wedding trend will be destination weddings. With international travel becoming more accessible again thanks to more people getting vaccinated and borders opening up again, marriers are choosing to have their wedding abroad. This can make for a truly unique and memorable event.
Wedding flowers are about to get a wild revamp. Think floral arrangements as major statements, suspending from chandeliers, rows whipping around tables, and artistic displays. Of course boutonnieres and bouquets are here to stay, but whatever you carry or wear is up to you and no one else!
Transgender folx will gain greater visibility. As transgender rights continue to increase, we predict that trans marriers and couples will become more visible in the wedding industry. This visibility will help to break down stereotypes and show the world that love knows no bounds.
