Another year, another set of wedding trends.

If you are wondering what the new year has in store for us when it comes to everything wedding-related, then let us share with you our forecast.

Intimate Weddings

Gone are the days when soon-to-weds plan on inviting the whole barangay to their wedding, especially now that we have all learned that an event’s success does not always lie in the number of guests. 

In fact, if there is one great thing this so-called new normal has taught us, it’s the idea that it is actually better to celebrate our milestones in life with only a few people who truly know and care about us. With all this, we are sure to see more intimate wedding ceremonies in 2023.

Minimalist Wedding Cakes

Because intimate weddings will remain a thing, minimalist wedding cakes will also be in demand. And this is great, particularly with the rise of home bakers who have begun taking orders for simple cakes, which they can prepare while also juggling other responsibilities in life. 

We are also expecting to see fresher minimalist wedding cake designs, thanks to the availability of inspos and mood boards on various social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest. With them, one can simply pick a peg, send it to their preferred baker, and finalize the design by adding details to personalize their cake.

Filipiniana-Themed Weddings

With the popularity of the TV series “Maria Clara at Ibarra,” more and more people are now growing appreciation for everything Filipiniana. So, we won’t be surprised to see more weddings that have it as their theme. 

Beautiful venues that highlight the richness of Filipino culture may also be a huge hit in 2023, as they are the perfect backdrop to stylish barongs and Filipiniana dresses.

Viva Magenta-Colored Wedding Details

Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023 is a vibrant hue that is truly perfect for an eventful year. For sure, lots of soon-to-weds are already creating their mood and inspo boards that are packed with details in this particular color.

The good news is that many suppliers have been busy perfecting the use of this color, eager to give their future clients only the best. Many bakers, for instance, have already been practicing how to concoct the perfect Viva Magenta icing for future cake orders.

Coffee Bars

For sure, you’ve already noticed that there has been a coffee business boom in the country in recent years. Besides coffee shops, lots of coffee lovers have also been selling their favorite drinks in carts, while some simply offer their brews online and via delivery apps. 

Interestingly, many of these small businesses have also begun offering services to soon-to-weds who want to make sure they can get access to good coffee on their special day, and for sure, this trend will continue in 2023, especially as more and more people embrace procaffeination.

2023 will be an exciting year for weddings, indeed!
