How Luxury Weddings Are Looking in 2023

Luxury Weddings

Your wedding day is an event you will remember for the rest of your life, so why not pull out all the stops to make it everything you always dreamed it would be? Luxury weddings are proving to be more popular than ever in 2023 based on bookings for locations, venues, and other details. Let’s take a look at some of the extravagant plans that are going into luxury weddings this year:

The Wedding Dress

One of the absolute highlights of any wedding is the wedding dress. What little girl doesn’t dream of the gown she will wear as she walks down the aisle to her Prince Charming? An extravagant wedding requires a showstopping bridal gown, and in 2023 that means a few different things. Designer wedding dresses are extremely popular among today’s brides. In many instances, the dress has become one of the greatest expenses of the entire wedding and reception, with brides spending tens of thousands of dollars on the wedding dress of their dreams. Another extravagance brides are indulging in is a bespoke wedding dress, a one-of-a-kind gown created just for her down to the last detail. On your special day, you want to feel like the most beautiful woman in the world, and what better way to do so than to be sheathed in the gown of your dreams?

The Flowers

Flowers have always played a big part in weddings, and that’s never been more true than this year. Brides are going all out to make the atmosphere for their weddings unforgettably beautiful by choosing standout bouquets and floral arrangements to decorate both the wedding venue and the reception area. Bridal bouquets feature exotic blooms and are designed to cascade like a colorful waterfall, complementing the beautiful wedding gown. Garlands of fragrant flowers are woven into arches that the bride and groom will stand under as they say their vows, making for breathtaking photos. Sprays of blooms adorn pews, chairs, and reception tables alike. No cost is being spared in 2023 to create a dreamlike setting with every kind of flower imaginable.

The Reception Menu

While some wedding receptions serve only cake, a truly extravagant event includes a sit-down meal featuring gourmet dishes and champagne towers. Caterers are reporting that menu requests for 2023 weddings include foods such as canapes topped with caviar, lobster, filet mignon, sushi, and other high-end foods. These dishes, along with an elaborate wedding cake for dessert, can cost thousands of dollars and are proving to be quite popular for weddings taking place this year. Couples are also including specialty menus for their vegan guests as well as food choices that take into consideration those with dietary restrictions for health or religious reasons.

The Cake

Speaking of foods, no luxury wedding would be complete without this multi-layered confection to complete the celebration. Even if the couple decides to forego serving a full meal, there will no doubt be a showstopper of a wedding cake. After facing so many restrictions on weddings and receptions over the past few years, this is the year that couples are going all out and celebrating bigger and better than ever. This year is seeing wedding cakes featuring unique designs and personalized edible embellishments. No cost is being spared as the phrase, “Let them eat cake” takes on a delicious new meaning.

The Event Destination

There is nothing quite like a luxury destination wedding. An unforgettable event for happy couples and their guests alike, destination weddings have exploded in popularity in 2023. Most couples choose a warm, exotic location for their nuptials. Many places in the Caribbean islands, Hawaii, etc., offer wedding packages that are fully customizable so that the couple can create their dream wedding event. Still others favor a magical snow-covered backdrop for their special day. There are several luxury ski resorts all over the world that also offer wedding packages, complete with chalets and customizable event experiences.

A luxury wedding is, first and foremost, all about the bride and groom. It should be everything they want it to be, and for many couples that means making it the most personal, memorable event possible. After experiencing an unprecedented time of limitations, uncertainty, and delays, people are ready to mark their special events in a big way. Throughout the coming year, luxury weddings will only continue to grow in popularity as the whole world celebrates love like never before.
