Gather Your Inspiration

Before you can start forming your texture forward wedding design, you need to gather some inspiration. Our favorite place to find ideas from real weddings is on Pinterest! Start pinning images that you feel gravitated towards. Then, take a look through your pins and think about the common theme. Maybe you love a boho design or prefer something a bit more edgy! Once you have your inspiration, bring your ideas to your wedding vendors to bring your dreams to reality. 

Focus On the Florals

An easy way to add plenty of romance and textural elements is through fresh florals. Chat with your florist about your design options! We recommend focusing on organic textures to achieve the most visual interest. Try and include florals throughout each part of the day. From the ceremony arch to your reception tablescapes, we say go all out with your wedding flowers! 

Be sure to research your favorite seasonal florals and get creative with different dried options as well.Think about if you want to focus on the blooms or if you love the look of greenery. The options are endless and your florist will be there to help you choose designs that match your vision and budget.

Layers, Layers, Layers!

Be bold with your design choices. You will want to create a focal point for each area of your wedding. Think about what you want your guests to notice first. Maybe at the ceremony, you feature a macrame arch and then at the reception you and your new spouse sit at vintage inspired peacock chairs! Choosing one element to design everything else around will make the process easier.

It’s All About the Details

Don’t forget about the details! This is a great moment to truly make your wedding design personal. For example, you can incorporate family photos in different textural frames. To make the most of your wedding details, maybe they serve two purposes. You can set the guest favors at each table as decor and then let them know they are theirs to take home! Many couples are choosing to gift their guests with small houseplants so that they can continue to enjoy their gift as a reminder of your special day.
