If there is anything we noticed within the past year, it is that COVID will not stop any more weddings. The pandemic has put a halt on many ceremonies within the past two years, but it is safe to say that weddings are back in vengeance for 2023.
So to prepare you for the wedding season, here are some 2023 wedding trends that we predict are going to make a mark.
There is something so elegant about a high-neck wedding dress. A classic neckline that provides versatility and sophistication whilst adding a hint of flirtatiousness. Ranging from chin height to lower neck, these necklines offer brides an option to play with silhouettes. Either paired with long sleeves or capes the ability to play proportions is seamless.
South Asians have continuously broken barriers when it comes to wedding wear. Luxe gowns and bold jewellery are the main attraction for many weddings. Uniting family and culture, these traditional garments have created a long lineage that has evolved throughout centuries. Designers, including Sabyasachi, have opted for pastel pinks and sage greens to cater to the modern world, remaining faithful to the classic red and gold sarees.
As colour has crept back into fashion, more couples opt for a non-traditional look. Brides are willing to push the boundaries with their wedding looks, dabbling in pastel tones—think fairy fantasy. As designers indulge in coloured botanical prints, couples are left with more show-stopping choices.
The layering of sheer fabrics, sometimes accompanied by frothy tulle, is quite possibly the most prevalent trend this season. Several designers, like Vera Wang and Watters, offer seductive peek-a-boo styles while remaining sweet, taking a different approach to your standard lace or mesh. The use of transparent fabrics enables designers to create illusions throughout a garment. Imitating skin, these fabrics can provide a modest look while still obtaining a classic look.
There is something so magical about two people making a vow to one another.
