   The Ten Hottest Wedding Trends of 2023

Hi !  I’m absolutely fizzing with so much to share!  So what’s hot and what’s not this season?

The weather on the South East Coast of Queensland where I live has been hot during the first quarter of 2023.
It’s been Sizzling and we’ve seen so many new, fresh 2023 wedding trends emerge to match the weather…
Brides and Grooms, turn up the air-con for these gorgeous ideas!


 1.   This years Pantone Colour 2023 is
Viva Magenta
Pantone of the year trends with Suzanne Riley Marriage Celebrant and wedding celebrant sunshine coast

The Color of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta, and that news comes straight from the International Pantone Colour Institute.  A close relative to carmine, crimson red or deep raspberry, powerful and empowering, joyous and optimistic. With a balance between warm and cool it’s truly inclusive. 

At the boldest most beautiful receptions there will be beautiful Magenta details and pops galore.

WELCOME TO THE ‘MAGENTAVERSE’

Let’s hear it for the boys

Grooms are taking it up a notch, matching the elegance of their brides.
We’re seeing less of the chino’s matched with sports jacket, less beige linen and more of the designer suits.

5.  Dynamic, Bold and Bright Colour Schemes

 Loving ‘Viva Magenta’! Bold, bright decisions are being made.
We’re not talking carnival though, we’re seeing considered bold colour blocking with
complimenting and opposing colours from the colour wheel.
We’re loving the energy and excitement these thoughtful palettes are delivering.

MC, Presenter and Compère – Suzanne Riley 

A Professional Wedding MC’s is a must have.
Professionally keeping the evening on pace, hosting and energising, working with the entertainment and caterers.

If your Celebrant offers this service and you LOVE their energy and style,
this is a great choice as your MC .   You already have history,  your guests will have created a relationship and be familiar with the Celebrant so the magic can continue throughout the entire occasion.

Photo and Video Booths

For a number of years, photo booths and video booths have been entertaining your guests
before they’ve even sat down for entree, not to mention creating interesting photo guests books.

They’re still hot and will be for a while!

Photo and video booths and ‘roaming ring’ photo captures – downloading straight to your phone

Visit Noosa PhotoBooths 
have shown they’re worth their weight in gold when entertaining guests after the ceremony and throughout the reception.  They’re still hot and still creating fun.


7. Same Same but different 

We’re there… it’s not a same sex wedding anymore, it’s now just ‘A WEDDING’

It’s taken a couple of years to truly embed into the culture and now we’re at last seeing an honest openness and equality that’s long awaited.

Hopefully we’ve seen the last of couples feeling the need to ask if a supplier is ‘LGBTQ friendly


8.  The First Look – Popular Still!
Start the celebrations and the precious memories with your LOVE!

Couples are loving the idea of meeting up a couple of hours before the ceremony at a private location to have that intimate, romantic ‘first look’ first sight of each other, a moment to share out of the limelight and just between lovers … mix it up and spend most of their wedding DAY together, after all, it’s ALL about you!

FirstLook-001

The photographer captures every memory of the first moments.
Time to capture beautiful photos together and then arrive to their ceremony on time, with most of the official photos done and dusted.

See the popular BLOG here – with everything to know about this hot trend

Join guests after the ceremony for a few family photos and straight into the celebrations, nibbles, drinks, party time! No shooting off for 2 hours whilst guests are waiting.
This is the HOTTEST trend for the wedding day schedule and makes so much sense. LOVE it.

10.  Indoor Fireworks

No More Burned Fingers 

Sparkler farewells are hot, but burning fingers hot.. so they’re not cool .. let me start again 🙂

To create a sparkling farewell, opt for professional indoor fireworks
or streamers for guests to shower as a the newlyweds exit

Hi !  I'm absolutely fizzing with so much to share!  So what's hot and what's not this season?  The weather on the South East Coast of Queensland where I live has been hot and not in the first quarter of 2023. It's been Sizzling hot and we’ve seen so many new, fresh 2023 wedding trends emerge to match the weather… Brides and Grooms, turn up the air-con for these gorgeous ideas!, indoor sparklers, indoor fireworks, sparkler exit  Screen Shot 2023-03-13 at 3.00.14 am

Take a ballroom full of guests who have been enjoying an open bar for 5 hours and give them sticks on fire, and you’re asking for trouble.  Sparkler farewells have been a venue and wedding planner’s worst nightmare and are on the absolutely not hot list this year.

We love and recommend G&M Events for indoor fireworks Queensland
