Marbling is a trend that is hot right now… and here to stay. When it comes to your wedding, it will bring a classically romantic feel with a modern, chic edge. Here are a few ways to showcase it.
Marbling is an easy way to add a pop of colour to your wedding, in an über sophisticated way. Remember, that it all starts with your invitations. Go bold with a statement colour to really emphasise your marble design.
Or combine a subtle marbling effect with botanicals to add a more complex colourway and interesting details, which you can use on menus and other wedding stationery on the day.
Instead of flowers, go for an all-white table with tea lights and candelabra and let your beautiful marbled crockery be the focal point. A white and gold marbled underplate is a beautiful foil for a bold colour such as Emerald, or Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery.
Marble and metallics are gorgeous together, but the key is keeping it simple. One marble item, such as a ceramic vase at various drinks stations for your wedding (or even your engagement party, to kick off your theme) is elegant and inviting. As your base is a neutral colour palette, you then have a multitude of options when it comes to colours for your flowers.
Incorporate marbling into your wedding favours too. Think salt marbled with dried herbs – especially if your colour is green – or chillies for some added kick. A useful favour for guests that won’t weigh down the wedding budget.
From there, your marble details could form part of the décor too. Simply by positioning marble and metallic plates in a certain way, it becomes a design element unto itself. A fab, impactful option for a dessert bar, where people help themselves to items – plus flowers are not really necessary.
The marbling on your table does not need to be intense. A soft grey and white marbling effect is a beautiful foundation, which you can take in any direction. Play up the marbling look by choosing unusual or uneven underplates.
To avoid everything looking too overly themed, the key is to have delicate marble touches throughout. That’s why if you’ve gone to town with the table, keep the marbling on your cake relatively simple and just add a metallic bow to finish it off. Beautiful!
