Add Texture To Your Wedding Day
This week we’re talking about how to add texture to your wedding. What does that mean? Texture entails layering different shapes, patterns, & materials together. Not only does adding texture add beauty to your wedding day, it also adds a personal touch to your decor. You can add texture to your wedding day in many different aspects!
First, we look at your wedding invitations.
Adding texture to your wedding invitations gives it a more personal vibe. Are you going for trendy? Add metallic lettering or copper foil for that extra edge. Do you want it to be more romantic? You could use a deckle edge or lace on the invite. Add cloth or ribbon to your stationery to tie into the fabrics or ribbons you are using in your wedding. Add twine around your invitation to create unique dimension. Texture also applies to the type of paper you choose. You can use thick parchment for an old world feel, or acrylic for a modern touch.
Another way to add dimension to your wedding is your wedding guests’ tablescapes!
We love gauzy, romantic runners and bursting floral wedding decor. You can have a wide range of texture experiments with your wedding tablescapes. Keep in mind, big floral designs can overshadow some of the smaller textures. Because of this, we recommend you just pick three colors or materials. Choose from metal accents, wood details, flowers, runners, paper and fabric to create your unique tablescape. Texture can add that certain sparkle that you’re looking for in an invitation or tablescape. Adding texture gives you creative license to customize how you’d like your big day to look and feel.
The most obvious way to add shape and materials to your wedding day is your bouquets.
Nowadays the more texture, the better when it comes to your wedding flowers! The endless options of greenery, succulents, & flowers make it easy to add texture to this aspect of your wedding. If you’d like to follow the velvet trend of this year, you could even wrap the stems of your bouquets in a soft velvet.
Another way to add dimension and personal touches to your wedding day is varying the styles of your bridesmaids dresses.
Having your bridesmaids wear various dress styles adds dimension to your wedding photos and day. When your bridesmaids dresses are carefully coordinated to be different, yet cohesive you can rest assured you will not have a mismatched wedding. This will look beautiful visually and make your bridesmaids happier by because they can choose a personal style they feel comfortable in.
