Adding Texture

This week we’re talking about adding texture to your wedding! What does that mean? Texture can entail layering different texts, materials over each other or other details like flowers, inks or dyes.

First, we look at your invitations. Adding texture to that stationary gives it a more personal vibe. Are you going for trendy? Add metallic lettering or copper foil for that extra edge. Do you want more romantic? You could use a deckle edge or lace on the invite. Adding cloth or ribbon to your stationery can also tie into the fabrics or ribbons you are using in your wedding. Adding twine around your invitation is a great way 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 texture to your wedding is tablescapes! We love gauzy, romantic runners and bursting floral decor. You can have a wide range of texture experiments with tablescapes. Big floral designs can overshadow some of the smaller textures so we recommend picking three only. Choose from metal accents, wood details, flowers, runners, paper and fabric to create your unique tablescape.

No matter how you use texture, we love how it can elevate your big day. 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.
