Velvet is everywhere these days – and not just in fashion and home décor! We expect to see plenty of velvet incorporated into weddings over the coming year in rich tones like ruby red, emerald green, royal blue and ballerina pink. To help you get inspired for your own big day, we put together some of our favorite ways that you can incorporate velvet into your wedding décor.

Incorporate velvet fabrics into your ceremony arch! Combining draped velvet fabric with intricate floral arrangements provides a stunning textured focal point for your ceremony backdrop.

Reception seating and décor

Velvet chairs in different styles and colours provide unique seating for guests at your reception. It looks especially beautiful underneath an elegant dais at a South Asian wedding reception! Velvet also looks beautiful as décor for your reception tables, whether you use it as tablecloths, table runners, napkins or menus.

Adding artificial flowers to your wedding cake is a popular trend – why not kick things up a notch and add velvet artificial flowers to your wedding cake? You can even add some elegant velvet ribbons alongside the velvet flowers. Bonus points if it’s a red velvet-flavored cake!

Wedding day fashion

When it comes to wedding day fashion, velvet bridesmaids’ dresses, suit jackets, ties and bowties, footwear and even hair flowers are great ways to showcase your love of this versatile fabric. The trend is especially elegant if you’re hosting a winter wedding in destination.

Whatever your dream wedding looks like, incorporate velvet to add an elegant and glamorous touch to your big day!
