These 6 Charming Weddings of 2023 Will Inspire You To Plan Your Own Unforgettable Once-in-a-Lifetime

From intimate affairs of timeless romance to grand ceremonies that celebration love and life, we take a look back at some of 2023’s most memorable weddings as we bid goodbye to another year of inspiring matrimonials.

As the curtain falls on yet another year, it is time to look back at the Real Weddings we’ve covered in 2023 and gush at the beautiful nuptials we’ve read about all over again. Weddings in 2023 have been a wonderful show of love, diversity, individuality and creativity. With travel resuming and the re-opening of the world, destination weddings are slowly but surely returning, as well as bigger and more extravagant weddings.

We had so much fun getting to know all our couples’ stories and reliving their happiest day through photos that we want to share our (and their!) joy with you. Let these beautiful weddings of 2023 inspire you to plan a unique and unforgettable celebration that represents who you are as an individual and as a couple, starting from number 6.

6. Nicole and Meng’s Lively Squid Game Themed Gate Crash and Joyous Wedding at JW Marriott Singapore South Beach

It was clear that Nicole and Meng, and their bridal entourage were a fun bunch. Their bridesmaids and groomsmen sportingly dressed up as characters from the popular Netflix Korean series Squid Game for the morning gate crash, and even included the iconic dalgona biscuit game as one of the activities the groomsmen have to overcome before Meng was allowed into Nicole’s family home. The fun pair also danced to Bang Bang Bang with their closest friends for their first and only march-in!

5. Angeline and Kelvin’s Shanghai-Themed Wedding at The Riverhouse

Straight off the bat, Angeline and Kelvin knew they wanted something out of the norm and unlike what everyone has seen for their wedding, all while keeping to the traditions. During their research on SingaporeBrides, they found the perfect venue in The Riverhouse where they could have an oriental wedding with a Shanghai theme and modern wedding dress. They even managed to squeeze in two photoshoots of them in the traditional Chinese Kua and in Shanghai style outfits with their bridal entourage during the celebration.

4. Katrina and Naresh’s Sunshine Yellow Wildflower Wedding at The Alkaff Mansion

All Katrina and Naresh wanted for their wedding was a simple and intimate celebration that brought two cultures together and showcased their individualities while being rewarding and joyous for their guests. Right from the start, they wanted something pastel in nature for their wedding colour palette to complement their wedding brunch celebration. Being the creative one in the relationship, Katrina took charge of planning the moodboard, and I love how she choose bright sunshine-yellow wildflowers to showcase her cheery personality! The super cute knee-length wedding dress she wore down the aisle also complemented the adorable blooms in her hands, giving her intimate wedding celebration a sense of fun, lightness and overflowing joy.

3. Mary and Rizal’s Blooming Garden Wedding at Villa Anugrah, Uluwatu

Destination weddings are making a comeback, now that travel has resumed, and I couldn’t be any happier. Destination weddings are always a beautiful sight and wonderful inspiration, and Mary and Rizal’s spectacular wedding in Villa Anugrah, Uluwatu was no exception. With a focus on a modern white and green theme, and a concept of a garden filled with flowers, backed by the stunning natural views from the cliffside, the clear blue sky and the magical sunset, their union couldn’t have been more mesmerising.

2. Amanda and Stanley’s Macabre, All-Black Wedding in an Abandoned Building

Truly one-of-its-kind, Amanda and Stanley’s goth, all-black wedding in an abandoned lubrication plant is one of the most unconventional weddings we’ve featured to date. The couple met while exploring urban spaces and connected over their shared interest in the dark and macabre, so it was only natural for them to celebrate their story and next phase of life in a venue that represents their hobby and how they met. Their wedding was so unconventional that it was toeing the line of taboo with an all-black dress code, a wedding invitation card that was inspired by an Ouija Board, a ram’s skull for the wedding centrepiece, a witch’s hand as a ring holder and other unorthodox props.

1. Joy and Josh’s Summer Coral Wedding in the Surga Villa Estate, Bali

Joy and Josh’s enchanting union in Bali was hands down my favourite wedding of 2023. It was aesthetically pretty, inviting and extremely fun and wild! Their chosen theme in a bright and modern palette of coral and pink popped against the mesmerising blue sky and clifftop views as they exchanged vows and added warmth to the party as the setting sun cast an orangey glow over the celebration. Their reception and march in was so much fun, walking in to Low by Flo Rida with sparklers and plenty of fun activities and moments throughout the night. Needless to say, their afterparty was filled with even more fun and food, with an Indomie stand, bubble tea stand, and free-flow alcohol!
