In the aftermath of the Covid lockdowns, we find ourselves on the verge of one of the most significant shifts in trends for UK weddings.
Dreamy wedding ceremonies in the sun are very much back on the agenda — following two years of dreary social distancing, couples are lining up to tie the knot abroad.
Among the key wedding trends for UK couples in 2023 is planning an adventure abroad to experience the rich culture of Mediterranean destinations, specifically Spain. Spain is proving a big draw for nuptial celebrations with its golden shores, atmospheric villages, luxurious hotels, stunning villas, and cosy haciendas. Many couples are choosing sunny Spain to reinvent the traditional wedding to suit their preferences, style and taste while making the ceremony a remarkable experience for family and friends.
Keeping that in mind, here are some of the top 2023 wedding trends you need to know.
Bridal Suits Wedding Trends
Another 2023 wedding trend that stirs a bridal storm worldwide is the wedding suit for brides. Bridal wedding suits contrast the classical wedding dress approach and bring an inspiring and fresh look to every bride-to-be.
The idea behind the suit is comfort and style. Wearing a suit is much more comfortable than spending the entire evening encased in a restrictive dress and will allow you to dance away the night of your dreams without succumbing to ‘dress fatigue’.
Furthermore, the fashion statement of the wedding suit sends a message that breaks the traditional elements of the ‘women in dresses, men in suits’ mentality. Bridal wedding suits were also the head-turning fashion statement at the Barcelona bridal fashion week.
Weddings In Spain
The wedding trends for 2023 highlight Spain as the top-tier wedding destination. Imagine being married in Spain. It will be exotic, romantic and bubbling with culture. Spanish weddings have a unique flair because of so many factors! It’s easy to see why — from the mouthwatering cuisine to the warmth of Spanish traditions and, of course, the beautiful Mediterranean weather.
Marrying the love of your life in Spain should create picture-perfect life-long memories for you and your guests.
We offer a wide array of wedding venues in Spain, from beachside villas to rustic inland cottages. Our most sought-after wedding packages are provided near Marbella and Sotogrande.

The average flight time from the UK to Spain takes around two hours, making Spain an ideal proximity destination. In addition, there’s plenty of sunshine, so you can have your perfect outdoor ceremony or romantic alfresco wedding banquet in Spain.
Compared to the UK, Spain has higher average temperatures, clearer skies, and significantly less rainfall per month. As a result, you will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, delicious outdoor dining and some fantastic Rioja, Cava or whatever your most tempting tipple may be. In addition, you can gaze at the stunning coastlines and marvel at the beauty of medieval backdrops. All of these features combined make Spain the on-trend destination for weddings abroad.
Rustic, Earthly-Toned, Inland Weddings in Spain,
The golden standard for weddings, are usually in the sweet spot between spring and summer, but with the latest wedding trends, it seems autumn and winter are on their way to changing the game. Rustic weddings have been trending for the last couple of seasons, and they pair beautifully with the season’s warm and cosy colour palette.
Moreover, among the romantic elements of autumn and winter are food for the senses, such as logs crackling in the fireplace and the smell of pumpkin spice in the air. The abundance of homey foods such as roasted chestnuts, apple pies, and other delicacies awaken feelings of home in every autumn-loving couple.
The main idea behind rustic weddings is to incorporate rich colours, such as amber, green, and beige, into the wedding decor, clothing and, in some cases, the wedding cake.
A trendy rustic destination is the village of Gaucin. Imagine a stunning mountain village with breathtaking views of Gibraltar or North Africa; it is magnificent and perfect for a romantic wedding. This village is the gateway to Serrania de Ronda. Depending on the season, you can experience an impressionist palette full of vivid brush strokes of wild purple orchids and yellow mimosa. Gaucin is also well-known for its international artist community.
Beach Weddings In Spain
If a rustic atmosphere isn’t your cup of tea, a beach wedding in Spain will surely be a direct hit. We offer several wedding venues in Spain, and the most popular ones are located right on the beach.
Marbella beaches have been a popular destination for international and Spanish tourists since the 1950s. Marbella has more than 18 miles of beaches catering to all tastes. There are also VIP areas with refreshment stalls and clubs.
There is no doubt that beaches are a popular tourist attraction, and little doubt that your guests will thank you for the wonderful setting.
