The marble themed weddingThis entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime.

The marbleing effect is one of the hottest wedding trends of the moment. Think minimalist, clean lines with subtle colour palettes, and you’ve got it. Marbling is an ideal way to add texture to your theme and works incredibly well with greys, light pinks, crisp white, and greenery for a really modern touch to your wedding décor.

Remember those fun oil marbling effect paintings most of us did in school? Well, keep that in mind when it comes to marbling embellishments and why not expand the colour palettes to include anything from pastels, to brights and bolds? you don’t have to stick to the rule book when it comes to this trend.  Indeed, marbling doesn’t have to be confined to muted tones of grey.

Here are some ideas for incorporating the marbling effect into your wedding planning.

Marbling Effect Wedding Trends You Can Use

Marbled stationary

Stationary and Signage That Popa

Marbling works so well for invites and save the dates, so have a look at the designs that are out there. A marbled menu on each place setting will also add visual texture to your tables. Why not think about having some strategic signage throughout the day too? And they don’t have to be made out of marble, a regular card printed with marbling effect will work just as well.

Guest book

Finishing Touches

Think marbled table runners, dishes or napkins. Why not use some marbled ribbon wound around candles or lanterns, or why not just go for a few marbled accents such as balloons or aisle runners? Or instead of the traditional guest book, why not get a customised piece of marble for guests to sign? It can become a bespoke piece of art for your home afterwards.

Marbled cake pops & favors

Cake pops or cookies covered in swirls of chocolate will look stunning or why not get creative and make some homemade soap with marbling effect? Marble coasters with guest’s names can easily double as favours and escort cards and they don’t have to be made out of real marble either a regular card with a marble effect printed on it will look just as good. Or what about regular place cards sitting in marble stones?

Ultra Violet is the Pantone Color of the Year

Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-compliance, encouraging individuals to imagine their unique brand in the world and pushing the boundaries through creative outlets.

Here is what we’ve read from Pantone about Ultra Violet “Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.
