To be clear, I meant I’m crushing on velvet, not crushed velvet. Well okay, crushed velvet is gorgeous too.
Does anyone think of the 90’s when they think of velvet? I certainly do – but in a fond way. Not in a horrific way like some 90’s trends.
I recently got married just two weeks ago and thanks to velvet wedding inspo, I already wish I could have a do-over. I did manage to incorporate a touch of velvet in my shoes, in a lovely dusty rose hue (heart eyes!).
Adding a touch of velvet (or A LOT) to any wedding in any season is such a great way to incorporate some drama and texture to anything from your tablescape to bridesmaid dresses to place settings.
A touch of velvet ribbon to tie things together such as your menu, invitations, and even little boutonnieres can add the sweetest finishing touch. These are small details, but can make such a bold statement on a small scale.
Ahh yes, velvet shoes. Like I mentioned, I had be the most gorgeous pair of dusty rose velvet pumps. Our two-year-old ring bearer even liked them so much that he wore them around when I (lovingly) tossed them aside to hit the dance floor. You can find velvet shoes in so many different colours now to compliment your colour scheme or just to represent your favourite colour. Shoes are a great way to add some personal flare or make a bold statement so why not add some velvet to the mix?! Again, another subtle yet bold style statement.
Another way to add some velvet to your wedding is by incorporating some into your tablescape. Whether it be by using a velvet tablecloth, a runner, or napkins, it’s sure to add some texture, drama, and luxury to your table.
This is my favourite way to incorporate velvet into a wedding – attire! A velvet groom’s suit jacket is such a style statement, especially in a gem-toned colour for a fall or winter wedding. For your bridesmaids, I’d love to say that it could work for any season, but let’s be honest – velvet in the summer months may not be the best option. So play it safe and drape your spring, fall, and winter ‘maids in some velvet. The way that it drapes on the body will have your ladies look absolutely elegant and stunning!
I could go on and on about velvet being used for weddings but let’s keep this relatively short and sweet! I hope this has inspired you to incorporate some swoon-worthy velvet elements into your big day! If you’ve already tied the knot and crushed on some velvet too, I wanna hear about it! Let me know in the comments below and let’s swoon together.
