Trending: Decorating with Velvet for a Luxe Wedding

The runway has spoken, and we’ve listened: velvet is trending this season, and it’s one luxe material we must cosy up to this autumn.

From the Oscar’s red carpet to the pages of your favourite interiors magazine, velvet’s touch-me-texture has proven a winning addition to every inviting look, which is why we’re excited to see its glamorous touch at weddings this season.

Less is More

What we love most about velvet is the simple fact that less is more. So, when it comes introducing this luxe touch to your wedding day, all it takes is an easy addition. Think stylish details such as: a velvet runner on the gift table; a sleek velvet sash knotted around dining chairs; or a velvet bow tied around your cake stand to elevate your luxe look to the next level.

STYLING TIP: Keep it simple to avoid a dated “Nanna” feel.

Consider finishing wedding favours with a velvet bow for inviting texture to table settings, or pair functionality with fashion by having your bouquet fastened with a velvet knot.

Make a Statement

Love the look, but can’t find the right spot to feature velvet? Why not make the most of this trending textile in your photography? Nothing sets the mood for a glamorous wedding album more than an elegant photo shot with a velvet chaise inspired by old-Hollywood glam. Velvet’s simple yet mesmerising texture is the perfect backdrop to make your dress details pop. Keep the colour solid in the season’s hottest shades such as navy, greenery, blush, champagne and beige for a never-fail look.
