Dramatic Damask { Bold + Beautiful }

Dramatic Damask { Bold + Beautiful }

This theme is all about the glam, the style and the elegance – pair damask with some bling, and you have yourself quite the stylish affair. If you're not too sure what we're on about, let's explain: Damask is a very delicate and intertwined pattern and the perfect way to break an otherwise plain colour scheme.

Let's dig a little deeper into areas where damask can be used during your wedding:

  • Invitations. It is one of the first interactions with your guests where your theme can be presented and should therefore make a statement.
  • Stationery. This can include menu borders, seating chart, place setting name cards and thank you notes.
  • Your wedding cake. Certain tiers of your wedding cake can have a damask pattern on it. e.g The middle layer of a 3-tiered cake.
  • Bridesmaid dresses. You will definitely be the main focus if your bridesmaids are in damask dresses and you are in an elegant white wedding dress. Your groomsmen can wear a damask bow tie or tie.
  • Your wedding dress. Have a few layers of damask under your dress or add lace on your dress to give it a damask feel.
  • Table cloths or table runners. You can either have a solid colour table cloth with a damask table runner or vice versa.

Just remember that moderation is key. Too much damask can cause headaches.
