Turning up the volume on FASHION is a 2023 Wedding Trend we are Pumped about!

The pandemic temporarily put a hold large celebrations and gave rise to more micro-weddings with minimalist vibes, but couples are itching to push the limits this year with bolder and bigger ideas. Colorful weddings are on the rise from attire to decor. There’s also a great deal of attention being placed on men’s wedding fashion this year.

Try these wedding fashion tips to push the envelope on your wedding day:

  1. Forget the traditional veil and choose a hat or intricate head piece. It’s your day queen!
  2. Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Dip dye your wedding dress or tie in this color, or keep it more simple and paint your nails in this hue.
  3. Buy matching funny underwear with bright prints or patterns, and take a clever photo showing off your newlywed underdoos…
