Ideas and inspiration for your 2023 wedding
Trendy or timeless?
When it comes to a once-in-a-lifetime event, like your wedding, it can be hard deciding whether to run with the trends or stick to timeless. Photos are forever, afterall.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Finding one or two trendy elements to blend seamlessly into your design plans can make for a timeless, yet unique, event that you’ll be proud to look back on!
We sat down with Christina Chanel with Clink & Co. Designs to discuss top trends as we head into the 2023 wedding season. Clink & Co. Designs is one of the top event coordination, planning & design, and styling companies in Michigan. With Christina at the helm, they are poised for a spectacular 2023!
Top Wedding Trends
Beautiful lights, custom letters, romantic backdrop–what more could you want in a photo op? Not only do they make for the perfect focal point at any party, but they’re super simple to customize, creating a unique design experience that is certain to give your guests that wow factor.
Creating a custom backdrop for your sweetheart table or your photo booth is a great way to add in a taste of uniqueness without going over the top. You may opt for a simple, chic design like greenery and twinkle lights, or choose a general saying like “Better Together”, or make it truly custom with the bride and groom’s name. Both make for an elegant backdrop that will look absolutely beautiful in photos!
Balloon Garlands & Arches
Step aside children’s birthday parties, it’s the balloon’s time to shine. No longer tacky or immature, balloons are making a comeback and in the most elegant way possible. Perfect for the entryway, photo booth, or backdrop, a balloon garland or arch makes for a beautiful focal point that will leave an impression!
Neon signs are one of the less expensive ways to make your space look highly customized. You can use a generic saying or have a custom sign created specifically for your event. Either way, it’s a super fun way to add a unique touch on traditional wedding decor!
360 Photo Booths
You remember those enclosed photo booths from the 2000’s, right? Those are on their way out, my friend. You can now rent a 360 degree photo booth that doubles as a unique guest experience and a fun way to get pictures of the night! Stand on the platform and dance, sing, or make out, and let the camera work its magic!
Want to make a huge impression with a magical, glamorous, show-stopping centerpiece? Then the flower wall is for you. Whether you go with greenery, flowers, real, or silk, it will make for that perfect Instagram-worthy photo we are all dying to capture. Your guests will love it and so will you!
Which Will You Choose?
Even if you prefer the timeless look of a classic wedding style, you can integrate trendy aspects to create a memorable, unique, and personal experience for you and your guests.
