Your East Anglian Wedding - February/March 2023 (Issue 59)

2023 venue styling trends to be inspired by STEAL THAT STYLE Atrend, as the definition suggests, is ‘a general development or change in a situation or in the way that people are behaving' – but who really wants to follow a crowd anyway? Movements in the wedding industry, from popular colour palettes to the must-have catering choices, are there to inspire couples rather than dictate what should be done. The wedding day should be completely bespoke and unique to the couple and that’s not going to fit any trend! It’s hard to even pinpoint trends nowadays as couples are truly owning their nuptials, theme, style and choices ‒ anything goes! If you’re planning your wedding and feel a little overwhelmed with Pinterest and Instagram, then here’s a guide to what’s hot in 2023 to put your personal spin on…. COLOUR AND TEXTURE Although neutral colour palettes will always be a main stay when it comes to wedding décor and styling, it’s classic and elegant, there are plenty of opportunities to bring in colour and texture for those that want the wow factor. Think: floral designs, textiles, furniture, motifs, and patterns ‒ the brighter and bolder the better! If you didn’t already know, Pantone’s Colour of the Year is Viva Magenta; it’s vibrant, it’s fun and looks incredible mixed with other colours, complementing weddings at any time of year. This shade works radiantly as an accessory or as part of a colour palette (check out the options below). When it comes to texture elements couples are now mixing and matching different styles of décor to create a unique look that reflects their personality. So, if you’re a boho bride who loves vintage glamour explore how you can combine these looks to create your overall aesthetic. Think: macrame and pampas grass combined with coloured glass and goldplated cutlery. VENUE STYLING 63
