the best spring wedding trends for 2023

February is the season of love. It’s also the season we start thinking about spring weddings! As a Portland wedding caterer, we have seen our fair share of spring nuptials, and in case you’re working through any last-minute details for your wedding planning, we’ve put a list together of some of 2023’s top spring wedding trends.

We hope it gives you some inspiration and helps this day be one you will never forget!

top spring 2023 wedding trends

Here are some of our favorite wedding trends this season:

#1: pink and pastels

Many blushing brides-to-be are opting for blush itself rather than a traditional white wedding dress. It’s not that white gowns are out because–let’s be honest–they’re timeless! It’s just that brides want and deserve to make a statement with their wedding attire, and one of the ways they do that is with a unique-colored dress. It’s fun, fashionable, romantic, and just what the wedding called for. That brings us to our next trend…

#2: a different dress for every bridesmaid

When it comes to weddings, we usually see the bridesmaids wearing the same dress, down to the color, with the only difference being the dress size. However, it’s becoming more and more of a trend for bridesmaids to pick out their own dress within the wedding’s specific color palette and with the bride’s approval, of course! It makes for some incredible pictures.

#3: grazing boards

Gone are the days of traditional wedding food. One of the season’s hottest wedding trends is a grazing board or charcuterie board, donned with delicious cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts, spreads, and so forth. It’s a delicious touch to your wedding that will ensure guests are happy (aka not hangry) during the ceremony. You can also serve it with the rest of the meal if you so choose.

#4: plants and wildflowers

This wedding season, brides and grooms are all about bringing nature into the wedding. So, don’t forget to stop by your local plant store to pick out some beautiful greenery and flowers (the more natural, wild bouquets, the better) to decorate your venue. You will love the finished result when the photos come out.

#5: fresh-air activities

With the rise of nontraditional ceremonies and outdoor weddings, you can count on engaging in some fresh-air activities this wedding season. Cocktail hour will likely be outdoors or on a patio, and after-party events are sure to include outdoor games, dancing, and other activities under the stars. It’s time to celebrate in the great outdoors!

#6: tents and twinkle lights

This match made in heaven turns any outdoor space into a truly magical one. Nature, combined with the ambient glow of soft twinkle lights and festive tents, makes us swoon for outdoor weddings all over again.

#7: heaping doses of humor

Whether you find it in wedding invites, table decorations, or reception speeches, an abundance of laughter is one of our favorite trends this season. As personal as 2023 weddings are going to be, they are bound to include moments of genuine joy and fun. With every toast, cake tasting, and first dance, we wish each 2023 couple joy on their wedding day that will last a lifetime.

#8: plant-based food options

Want to switch out the meat entrée for something plant based? Go for it! Plant-based foods are all the rage in 2023, and wedding parties are looking at creative ways to add more meat alternatives into the wedding menu. (Don’t want to go meat-free? No problem. Adding a few plant-based dishes to complement your meat menu is always an option!)
