In an era marked by increasing environmental consciousness, couples are prioritizing eco-friendly weddings. Sustainable practices are at the forefront, with many choosing biodegradable or reusable décor, ethically sourced flowers, and locally grown organic menus. Additionally, eco-conscious couples are selecting venues that offer renewable energy options and have a focus on minimizing waste. From invitations to favors, every aspect of the wedding is creating a celebration that leaves a positive impact on the planet.

Intimate and Micro Weddings

The trend of intimate weddings that emerged in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to gain popularity in 2023. Couples are opting for smaller guest lists, allowing them to create more meaningful and personal experiences for their loved ones. Micro weddings provide an opportunity to focus on the details, such as bespoke stationery, curated menus, and carefully crafted entertainment. With fewer guests, couples can allocate their budget to create luxurious experiences, ensuring that every attendee feels truly cherished.

Technology is seamlessly integrated into the wedding experience, adding a touch of modernity to traditional celebrations.
