Gecko Live Top Wedding Trends

While a clas­sic white wed­ding remains a time­less choice, many cou­ples in 2023 are seek­ing ways to infuse their cel­e­bra­tions with a dis­tinct flair. Whether it’s live music or stand­out acces­sories, dis­cov­er these 5 promi­nent wed­ding trends for 2023, per­fect for adding a per­son­al touch to your spe­cial day.

1 — Embrac­ing Eco-friend­ly and Sus­tain­able Weddings

Sus­tain­abil­i­ty has been a ris­ing trend in wed­dings for sev­er­al years, and it’s gain­ing even more momen­tum in 2021. Instead of opt­ing for dis­pos­able or per­son­alised items, many cou­ples are opt­ing for envi­ron­men­tal­ly con­scious choic­es. This encom­pass­es biodegrad­able con­fet­ti, dig­i­tal invi­ta­tions replac­ing paper, local­ly sourced flow­ers, sec­ond-hand wed­ding attire, and util­is­ing recy­cled mate­ri­als for décor.

2 — Live Music Ampli­fies the Celebration

In line with tai­lor­ing the food to suit indi­vid­ual pref­er­ences, music-lov­ing cou­ples are increas­ing­ly choos­ing live bands over con­ven­tion­al DJs for their recep­tions. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with a wed­ding band allows for cus­tomi­sa­tion of the musi­cal ambi­ence to align with the day’s vibe and theme. Live music effort­less­ly adds an ener­getic and per­son­al touch to the festivities.

3 — Grace­ful Gowns with Strik­ing Accessories 

In the realm of wed­ding dress­es for 2021, brides are grav­i­tat­ing towards clas­sic sil­hou­ettes, clean con­tours, and under­stat­ed fab­rics. How­ev­er, ele­gance does­n’t equate to monot­o­ny. The trend embraces state­ment veils and hair acces­sories, which are gain­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty. Tai­lor-made acces­sories pro­vide the ide­al means to infuse a touch of dra­ma into your wed­ding ensemble.

4 — Inno­v­a­tive Bev­er­age Sta­tions with Themes

Shak­ing up the con­ven­tion­al bar con­cept, sin­gu­lar bev­er­age sta­tions are tak­ing the stage – envi­sion Gin & Ton­ic sta­tions or Pimp My Pros­ec­co sta­tions. These self-serve instal­la­tions add an engag­ing and inter­ac­tive dimen­sion to your event, allow­ing guests to min­gle and rel­ish drinks with­out strain­ing the serv­ing staff. Sim­i­lar­ly, non-alco­holic cham­pagne and cock­tails are on the rise, cater­ing to guests seek­ing a sophis­ti­cat­ed alter­na­tive to reg­u­lar soft drinks.

5 — Depart­ing from Con­ven­tion­al Norms

While the grand white wed­ding con­tin­ues to hold its allure, an increas­ing num­ber of cou­ples are opt­ing for inti­mate cer­e­monies and recep­tions in uncon­ven­tion­al, more relaxed venues. Fur­ther­more, an even larg­er group is doing away with tra­di­tions such as bou­quet toss­ing or garter removal. In 2023, the spot­light is on inti­mate and unique­ly styled wed­dings set against unfor­get­table back­drops tai­lored to the cou­ple’s preferences.
