THE TRENDIEST MATERIAL OF 2017:
ALL ACRYLIC EVERYTHING
Brides love a good sheer wedding element. Is it because it has this totally transparent/floaty vibe? Or are millennial brides falling head over heels in love with lucite because it’s lack of color makes it essentially perfect for every color palette and season? Either way – we’re obsessing over these see-through materials because they’re the perfect balance of both modern & minimalist. Browse MMW’s favorite acrylic ideas below:
No theme? No problem! Nothing is as chic as white calligraphy (& you can’t get that on your grandma’s card stock paper!) Greet your loved ones with an elegant invite featuring simple details on a base that’s way less likely to get lost or damaged.
It’s wild how a simple slap of acrylic can elevate the vibe – just add customization! Sometimes venues will not allow you to remove items (like columns or uggo dust-filled antique chandeliers) but with lightweight acrylic pieces you can totally up the inventiveness!
Flowers in mason jars? So 2015. You can recreate this super stylish centerpiece with regular ol’ bouquets in vases, just stick them in lucite frames. I think the whole “color contained” appearance completely refines the aesthetic.
A WHIMSICAL WELCOME
Everyone loves a good welcome sign, but truth be told – slabs of wood = square dance central. It’s hard to get away from the whole “rustic chic” thing when you start incorporating mismatched wood and burlap. By using acrylic and greenery, you’re stepping away from the family farm and entering enchanted gardens.
CHARMING SEATING CHARTS
With a colorful tulle background, floral accents or even simple candle light, impress your guests by hand writing the seating chart onto lucite fragments.
BOUJEE BAR SIGNS
While acrylic signage looks so modern and expensive, it’s really comparable to wood or even high-end canvas materials in price. Another bonus? They’re so easy to dress up or down with added elements like flowers or lighting.
CHIC CANDLE HOLDERS
ACRYLIC + WATER = ♡
There’s this major ethereal vibe that takes your breath away when you use glassy acrylic stands to incorporate water. *Swoons!*
TASTEFUL TABLE NUMBERS
Y’all know what else I love about these? They’re so humble & understated. These beauts are like “Hey! I know I’m beautiful but please don’t let me distract you from the gorgeous centerpieces, or the bride.” So kind.
If you’re not into laser cut wooden menus or adding a pinecone to your guests’ plate (that they’ll simply stare at, confused) a simple acrylic menu over a colored napkin or even a few strands of greenery will make your tables look phenomenal.
These are commonly referred to as “ghost chairs.” They’re so simple and give off a crystal clear energy – the sheer solution for an outdoor ceremony.
SUPER CUTE CARD BOXES
These little cuties are what really took the acrylic/lucite trend by storm. Finished with a metallic lining and an engraved lid, brides are loving the translucent charm and sophistication.
I’m definitely not one for ridiculous over-the-top themed wedding cakes or cake toppers. When you’re shooting for understated, a clean cake topper featuring your new last name is the way to go!
