Sophisticated Green Velvet Winter Wedding Decor with Gold

There was a time I was fearful that I had run out of things to see and discover on Pinterest, but oh how wrong I was! I have found several, absolutely one of a kind images the last few days, and have had an overwhelming sense of inspiration and ideas come to mind after discovering them.

The first piece of beauty I found was a regal looking altar, draped in a dark green velvet, adorned with crisp white orchid flowers along the top. To heighten the look even further, there are gold, regal tassels and fringe accenting the drapery, creating a simple but stunning design. There was no turning back once I started down the path of devising the perfect combination of elegance and class that this wedding inspiration board demanded. I am over the moon with the elements I’ve included in this week’s wedding post. Lots of gold accents, plenty of green velvet, and of course more bright white orchids. Together, they create an almost enchanting, storybook-esque winter wedding.

While I think this would be a beautiful Christmas wedding in general, I would particularly love to see this wedding done on a day like New Year’s, or perhaps even Valentine’s Day. There is something so romantic about the textures and bold use of this luxurious dark green velvet that could really play to those holidays.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Modern White Orchid Outdoor Wedding Ideas

Are you a fan of modern or classic event décor?

I hope both! This week’s wedding idea board is all about modern. Some of the phrases I would use to describe this event décor would be: Clean shapes. Bright white. Modern elegance.Those are the inspiration words for this week’s wedding inspiration board.

This modern white orchid idea board would be perfect for an outdoor wedding this summer. Orchids generally hold up well in most temperatures, and their clean lines really feed into this modern styling.

The pops of green floral here and there help add a bit of color, while their unusual uses and shapes help add depth and dimension to this event. I opted for several unusual centerpieces, because I like to have several interesting pieces in my design. It helps keep the eye interested and wandering to discover the next stimulating element in the event décor.

An Unexpected Autumn Wedding with Burnt Orange Orchids

Happy almost-Thanksgiving!

Around this time last year I shared a bunch of fall inspired dinner party ideas, (check them out here) but THIS year I seem to be covering all sorts of new ground. Last week a tropical orchid heavy fall wedding. This week…..an unexpected autumn wedding idea board awaits you.

I loved the use of orange orchids last week, so I thought why not do more with them? This week I’ve looked for more burnt orange orchids, to really hone in on this seasonal wedding idea I have. This is more of a traditional fall wedding, but still keeps that lovely orchid beauty that is so light but impactful.

Here’s what I had in mind:
