Velvet Wedding Ideas We Love
Velvet and tulle are a match maid in sartorial heaven. And if you're not ready to commit to a full velvet gown (which is a great option for brides who want a dress color that isn't traditional) a long, romantic velvet sash adds just the right amount of texture. Put on a killer pair of velvet pumps to finish the look.
There's something so irresistible about a man in a velvet dinner jacket. But the lucky bride has dibs!
Your bridesmaids are going to look stunning in floor length velvet gowns. And they're definitely going to wear them again after the wedding.
Put your groomsmen in velvet bow ties for a look that is as trendy as it is dapper. Pair with a matching suede dress shoe that ties it all together.
Of course you need a velvet ring box! And there are so many varieties and personalization options that it's going to be hard to choose your favorite. Make sure your photographer gets a styled shot of your bands tucked in all cozy.
Flower petals add a lovely texture all on their own, but they look even sweeter tied up in a vintage velvet ribbon.
Drape your altar or chuppah in long bolts of velvet for an instant fairy tale feel.
Velvet covered note books are the perfect place to keep your vows safe and treasured forever. And they make for a great photo op!
Vintage chairs are a velvet wedding design essential. Keep them at your sweetheart table to maintain that "royal" feel.
The Table Decor
Lush bouquets, overflowing fruits and vintage glassware look right at home perched atop draperies of velvet in two toned berry colors.
A velvet wedding wouldn't be complete without a red velvet cake! The naked cake style mimics the fabric's texture and is still very popular with 2019 brides. Dress it up with some fresh flowers and an acrylic topper and you'll be ready for seconds in no time!
Do your guests a favor and skip the gift wrap! Tie up their favors in a sweet square of velvet for a treat that definitely looks too pretty to open.
