Vivacious Velvet <3

September 28, 2016


Well velvet is well and truly hitting the stores this AW16, but we are loving the idea of incorporating velvet into your special day! Velvet is classic, timeless and oh so glam - we think it makes the perfect material for a winter wedding <3 


Clothing ...


Loving this gorgeous look for your bridal gown or perhaps your bridesmaids - oh so warm in those winter months and you can truly get the richest most vibrant colours!


If you're not fancying going to whole hog, why not just pair with velvet accessories to create a true Shakespearian classic look? Perfect for those quirky couples looking to add something a bit different to their big day.


Ooooh we do love a velvet groom!! We like to think of this as a cross between rustic tweed and a vintage Mr. Bond <3


Velvet appliqués are a fabulous way to achieve that stunning Art Deco style on your dress, and is a great alternative for those wishing for some other interesting detail besides lace or sequins!


Accessories ...


Velvet stilettos - wow, what can we say? Most brides are often torn between going for a simple shoe to really let their dress shine or whether they should go for lots of details and sparkles (after all these shoes do need to be special!) We feel that velvet shoes are the perfect alternative, plain in appearance so that they will not obstruct your dress but the natural shine of velvet gives you that bit of glamour! As velvet is the trend of AW16, you may even find yourself a great bargain pair off the high street - but you can pretend they are Louboutin's if you wish!


Oh my goodness - how cute are these? We love these for your groomsmen and page boys - why not get different shades of your chosen colour (incorporate that never dying ombre style!)


Add a touch of colour to your bridal dress with a cute velvet belt - or perhaps pair with a leotard and tutu for your flower girls <3




We LOVE a red velvet as your wedding cake - especially for those winter months. It's everything a wedding cake should be, tasty, classic and eye catching! Go with the classic design, add a bit of festivity or give an old classic a modern twist!




Velvet is the ultimate material for dressing up your wedding venue in a quick and effective way. Go for bright eye catching colours or if you prefer a more classic expensive look, golds, silvers and blacks are strong contenders. A velvet table cloth is the ideal alternative to a sequin tablecloth, for those who want a bit of sparkle but perhaps want to opt for a more mature look.


Everyone wants their wedding invitations to be pretty special right? Well you can't get more 'posh looking' invites than velvet ones! We are sure that no-one will be losing these in a hurry!


This just screams festivity!! We love the combination of velvet, flowers and candles - so cosy! 



Well, theres my take on a velvet wedding. I truly think velvet is one of the most beautiful and underrated materials. If you are looking to add a touch of special glamour to your big day, then it is definitely worth considering taking inspiration from AW16's most popular trend <3


Until next time my lovelies,
