Not only will your bridesmaids be grateful for the warmth, they’ll also look absolutely stunning in their velvet bridesmaids gowns! It is such a unique look that adds dimension to the styling of your bridal party. Love!
2. Ring Box
Using a box lined with velvet for your rings is such a sweet and understated way to include velvet in your wedding day! It’s the perfect way to hold the rings for a photograph, plus you can save the box as a keepsake of your big day!
A small detail that makes a huge impact! Not only do we want to stress how important it is to have a guest book at your wedding (you’ll want to look back on it later!), creating one that goes with your velvet theme is such a great idea! Attention to detail is what makes a wedding great.
Whether you stick to the elegant velvet bow tie or go all out with the full velvet suit, velvet menswear is such a look! We love how it is a new take on boring mens suits without being too crazy. The perfect outfit for a winter wedding!
Velvet and florals are two things you’re seeing everywhere this season, often together! Obviously, they are the perfect duo. We love the idea of wrapping your bouquet with velvet ribbons. It’s both feminine and ultra chic, and totally gorgeous!
A overstuffed velvet chair is exactly what you deserve on your wedding day! Put your feet up, relax, and get some awesome, elegant photographs! Velvet can also be used as chair covers for your guests seating during the reception. And speaking of using velvet at the reception tables…
Your table decor is one of the easiest places to incorporate velvet! Your tables will end up looking luxurious and elegant after simply using a velvet table cloth or runner, and there are so many color options to go with any color scheme!
Another way to use dainty velvet ribbons: on your cake! Wrap a ribbon around the bottom of each tier and then finish it off with a nice bow and voila! A beautiful velveteen cake!
Need to really spice up your ceremony space? Add velvet, of course! Draping some velvet that coordinates with your flowers over the arch creates a stunning look and ideal background for photographs of your ceremony.
And last, but definitely not leash, your shoes! Clearly your wedding shoes are an incredibly important detail, so combining your love of velvet with your love of shoes is an obvious choice! Velvet shoes come in countless colors, types, and styles, so you have tons of options, and no matter what you choose they are certain to be stunning!
It’s easy to see that velvet is so in at the moment, and it really is the perfect fabric for these cold winter days. So why not incorporate it into your winter wedding? It keeps you warm, comes in any color, and looks amazing! We like to call that a win-win-win, so go get your velvet on!
