Wedding trends come in and out of style. Puffy shoulder sleeves, mashed potato bars, photo booths… there have been some fun and wacky trends over the years!

Lately, though, there are some in-style wedding moves that we hope never fade away. These trends are so fun and creative, maybe they’ll stick around for forever!

1. This Cat-tastic Cat Toss Tradition!

These cat lovers tossed a plush cat instead of a bouquet at their wedding. The person who caught the cat signed on to adopt a rescue kitten! Cat toss for a cause!


This couple had a โ€œcat tossโ€ instead of a bouquet toss at their wedding. It was one of many ways Cassie and Jonathan incorporated their love for cats into their wedding day!

2. Wedding. Puppies.

Keeping with the theme of promoting animal activism, some weddings are hosting some adoptable four-legged friends! Guests can take a pup home with them as their wedding gift. What a fantastic wedding trend!

3. Ditch the cake! Grab a donut!

More and more weddings lately are ditching the traditional cake in exchange for a colorful and personalized donut board! This dad made the donut board from scratch for his daughter’s wedding. How fun!

4. No need for a photo booth with these dope sunglasses!

For years, brides have spent mega-bucks to have a photo booth at the wedding. The new replacement? A pair of adorable shades! All the guests take a photo wearing the same glasses for an easy and cohesive wedding vibe.

5. Matchy-matchy dresses, be gone!

After decades of forcing bridesmaids to wear identical (and often, rather ugly) bridesmaid dresses, 2023 has brought a new frontier of individuality. Brides are, more and more, letting their besties pick dresses within a color scheme. The result is a cohesive and fashion-forward wedding trend!
