3 of the Hottest Wedding Trends
By Jan Maguire

Weddings are back in a big way with nearly 4.7 million* couples predicted to make the walk down the aisle this year and in 2023. La Quinta Resort & Club offers ample options for wedding celebrations catering to a variety of sizes, theme and budget—from intimate ceremonies held in a picturesque palm grove to multiday festivities culminating in a black-tie ballroom gala with 200-plus guests. 

When you tie the knot, you want to create a special experience that reflects your love story and unique personalities. Here are three of the hottest wedding trends to help inspire an unforgettable celebration:

Laid-back Luxury

Whether a creative charcuterie party with wine pairings, a colorful Mexican-inspired fiesta, or a food truck-catered rehearsal dinner with games like Jenga and cornhole for entertainment (I recently attended one!), the sky’s the limit when it comes to imaginative nuptials and celebrations surrounding the main event. Outdoor destination weddings remain extremely popular as people look for ways to party as risk-free as possible.

Green-Friendly Weddings

Eco-conscious couples can plan and host their dream weddings without sacrificing sustainability. There are several ways to reduce wedding waste including using recycled invitations, reusable decorations, rental services, locally sourced food, and hosting your nuptials in stunning settings with existing decorative elements and florals.

Wedding Lighting as Décor

Creative wedding lighting is truly an artform and integral to setting a one-of-a-kind mood, ambiance, and experience for your special day. Techniques like light-projecting and LED uplighting continue to raise the bar for what’s possible. From color washes, chandeliers and gobo patterns to string lights, candlelight and lanterns, the right illumination can set the stage for an extraordinary wedding.
