Latest Wedding Colors Trends for 2023


So you are recently engaged and/or looking for wedding inspiration? Congratulations that is a huge step! Visualizing your wedding is the first step in making it all come together.
Planning a wedding can be so much fun but let’s be honest it can be extremely daunting. Wedding planning has countless details to consider. For instance, how many guests should be invited, what season should I get married in, which venue should I pick, how many bridesmaids should I have. All of these factors blend in to one super aesthetically important aspect of your wedding: What should my wedding colors be?!


It is easy to get overwhelmed. However, picking the colors you want for your wedding is a great way to start narrowing down your wedding planning to do list.  Based on what we have seen and photographed last year, we put this list together with the latest and top trending wedding colors for 2023 to help make your decision just a tad easier.
Get inspired with the latest and rising wedding color trends for this year.  See real wedding images from real brides, bridesmaids and couples all shot by Vanessa Joy Photography.

Pastels tend to be popular in the spring and summer as flowers bloom and weather starts to get warmer . This year particularly popular wedding color trends in pastels are baby soft/blush pink and minty sage greens.

 Autumn Orange:

Burnt/Rust orange is notorious for the fall/autumn season and it’s not going away any time soon. Use it as a primary color or in combination with other colors. In the below wedding, the bride and groom chose burnt/rusty orange as the base color and combined with different shades of blue. The results: a classic and tasteful autumn wedding.
