We’re back this week with another trend watch and this time, we’re focusing on one of the softer trends for 2019: velvet.
Gone are the days when you could only use velvet if you were having a fall or winter wedding. Couples these days are using velvet regardless of their wedding season and we are heeeere for it.
With how many different color velvets there are, you can really pair it with any color scheme and fit it perfectly to your overall wedding vibe. And, you don’t just have to use velvet in your bridesmaids dresses or apparel (although who wouldn’t want to sit and pet a velvet dress all night long?). You can incorporate your velvet into your table linens, napkins, accents on your chairs, the actual chairs, draping, bouquet details, and SO much more.
The options are endless. Anything and everything can be covered in velvet if you want!
Want to see what we mean? We thought you might. Here are some pictures from weddings and styled shoots we’ve been a part of that are bringing this velvet trend to life. Check it out!
This wedding used a turquoise velvet linen and added pops of color with silver chargers, orange dinner plates, a blue casablanca salad plate and a deep red napkin. Are you getting all of the fiesta feels? Although this wedding took place in December (on an evening when the weather was in the 30-40 degree range), it was warm and inviting. The velvet table linen definitely helped add to the warm, soft feeling of the evening.
This couple used emerald as one of their main wedding colors and decided on emerald velvet linens for some of their guest tables (and farm style tables for the others). The green paired with the soft florals made this fall wedding warm and inviting as well.
Same wedding, different table… For the couple’s bride and groom chairs at the head table, they chose a velvet emerald green chair that complimented the guest tables with velvet linens PERFECTLY. Not pictured, but the bridesmaids were also in velvet dresses. All the velvet and ALL the heart eyes for this design!
Are you as obsessed with this table as we are? This was a styled shoot we helped with (the table, chairs and linen are ours) a little while back and we just LOVE how it turned out. The neutral velvet linen paired with the colorful glassware and centerpiece create such a classic, timeless look. We also love how the velvet linen is just a little bit bigger than the table, to give it that soft, billowing look. We shot this look in the dead of winter, but change up the colors a bit and you could really use this as inspiration for any color scheme within any season!
Does this not just scream spring/summer to you? The slate blue velvet linen (which actually changes color a bit depending on what angle you’re looking at it from), paired with the rose gold flatware and yellow and orange flowers just scream spring and summer to us, but you could change up the floral centerpiece a little and use this look for any season. The velvet look is really so versatile!
Loving these velvets? We are too. Going back through these images makes us want to cuddle up in a pile of velvet and stay there all day. Need more inspiration? Or just want to look at more velvet pretty? We don’t blame you. Head over to our Pinterest board “velvet everything” for all of your velvet inspiration needs!
