Contrasts and texture are not just inspiring for design but wonderful to look to for wedding ideas. Contrast heightens drama, while texture is an easy way to bring a luxe and engaging look to any event. Wood, stone, organics, even feathers can create a layered look. Inspiration is readily available from unique architecture, haute couture, natural landscapes, ancient structures - there are countless possibilities!
Vera Wang struck an opposing balance perfectly with this stunning dress - we love how the delicate layers underneath are fighting to be seen under the stark black outer layer. Even a diamond can be a rough, elegant textural statement.
We also love the classic white peonies with a black center- dramatic yet delicate. And what about a wood patterned cake? The usually soft sugary confection takes on an interesting artistic edge. We looked to countless unique and unexpected places for our inspiration, where will you find yours?
