Killing the Velvet Game

December 19, 2018 | Décor

Velvet is back. This rich fabric isn’t an old ’70s fad anymore, and we’re seeing details of it pop up all over at this year’s weddings and events. Here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate touches of velvet into your event:

 

 

Floral:

Create a wonderful accent to the bride’s bouquet by wrapping the flower stems with a piece of the lush fabric. Not only does this offer a practical use for preventing stains or water drips to a dress, but it looks stylish too.

Another trend for wrapped velvet is incorporating it into your centerpiece, which not only highlights the floral décor, but photographs beautifully as well.

Shoes:

Velvet shoes are all over the shelves. Finding a cute pair of loafers, pumps or boots will add a plush feel to really elevate the aisle or dance floor.

Accessories:

Small details can be everything. Look to use velvet on earrings, ties, cuff links or veil trims to add some texture and create an elegant feel at your event.

Reception:

Velvet linens are absolutely to die for. Fun to the touch, various velvet textures can change the table look and really give the room an opulent atmosphere.
