As the year comes to a close, we’re noticing consistencies and a few new wedding trends. The idea of “more” is everywhere: more guests, more food and bev needs, more creativity, and more flexible budgets to pay for it all. Wedding sizes are seeing a consistent increase, and we’re seeing similar numbers to our last 2022 weddings survey. And with more guests and larger affairs in the works, wedding budgets are understandably on the rise too.
