2023 San Diego Wedding Trends

By, March 16, 2023

At True Photography, we love keeping up with the latest wedding trends, and 2023 promises to be an exciting year for San Diego weddings. From bold color schemes to intimate micro weddings, here are some of the top trends we expect to see in San Diego weddings this year.

Bold and Bright Colors

Firstly, say goodbye to pastels and muted tones! In 2023, we expect to see more weddings in San Diego featuring bold and bright colors. Think vibrant jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and ruby red, paired with gold or silver accents. These bold color schemes can add a pop of personality and excitement to your wedding photos.Bold color table setting wedding trend photographed by True Photography

Micro Weddings

Due to the ongoing pandemic, many couples are opting for smaller, more intimate weddings in 2023. Micro weddings are perfect for couples who want to prioritize their closest family and friends, while still having a beautiful and memorable wedding day. Some popular venues for micro weddings in San Diego include Sunset Cliffs, Balboa Park, and La Jolla Cove.  Check out True Photography’s elopement gallery for more micro wedding inspiration.True Photography photographs an elopement in downtown San Diego

Sustainable Weddings

As more couples become conscious of their environmental impact, we expect to see an increase in sustainable weddings in San Diego. Additionally, couples are opting for eco-friendly wedding venues, locally sourced and organic catering, and recycled or biodegradable wedding favors. Not only does this help reduce waste and carbon emissions, but it can also add a unique and thoughtful touch to your wedding day.Healthy farm fresh wedding appetizers San Diego wedding trend

Mix-and-Match Bridesmaid Dresses

Gone are the days of matchy-matchy bridesmaid dresses! Particularly in 2023, we expect to see more bridesmaids wearing mix-and-match dresses in different styles, colors, and textures. This trend allows each bridesmaid to showcase her unique personality and style, while still maintaining a cohesive look.A classic San Deigo wedding trend of non matching bridesmaid dress captured by True Photography

Interactive Food Stations

Interactive food stations are an overall fun and engaging way to add some excitement to your wedding reception. In 2023, we expect to see more San Diego weddings featuring unique food stations. For example, DIY taco bars, sushi rolling stations, and dessert tables with a variety of sweets and treats.Wedding dessert bar photographed by True Photography

From bold and bright color schemes to micro weddings and sustainable touches, these trends can help make your wedding day unique, memorable, and also on-trend.
