Watercolor decor became popular several years ago, it just rushed the wedding world and became a huge trend. Today watercolor wedding decor has become classics for spring and summer weddings, it fits any color schemes and looks amazing with various themes, from glam to moody ones. Of course, it can be used for fall and winter weddings, too, for example, you may go for some eye-catchy watercolor touches just to enliven the venue – watercolor has no season but spring and summer nuptials look very chic and fresh with such details. You can rock watercolor in many points: a wedding dress or bridesmaids’ gowns, wedding stationery, wedding table runners and tablecloths, even cakery! I’d like to share some of the freshest ideas to use watercolor at your wedding, so that you could get inspired and find something proper for yourself.
Watercolor wedding stationery is very popular: it looks old, eye-catchy, dreamy and is easy to style for any wedding theme, from coastal to garden. Don’t think that watercolor is only about pastels, you can try moody and dark stationery with a watercolor effect. Style it calligraphy, ombre effects, a raw edge, and you’ll get perfect and very romantic stationery.
As for wedding decor, watercolor is often applied to backdrops, tablecloths and table runners, napkins and even vases or stands if they are pretty solid. You can create some beautiful table runners and tablecloths plus napkins yourself to dress up the table – there are lots of tutorials how to dye fabric creating watercolor looks. The backdrops can be also watercolor – of fabric or paper, and you may decorate them with fresh blooms and greenery. Decorate the chairs with some watercolor posies, add greenery and blooms for a cuter look. Watercolor of different shades always looks amazing with metallic touches like gold and copper, so feel free to use them for accenting something. You may also combine watercolor decor and trendy rocks and geodes, they look stunning together. Use lush florals that match your wedding table runner for creating the coolest look possible.
I’m totally in love with watercolor wedding cakes – they remind of impressionists’ masterpieces! Blue, pink, orange, grey, green – any colors look amazing on these hand painted cakes, and they become real confectionery masterpieces. Decorated with edible beads, pearls, calligraphy and fresh blooms they are sure to leave a long-lasting impression. Their seeming imperfection makes them very eye-catchy and attractive. To make your dessert table more matching, you may also add watercolor pops and cookies.
