Macramé Wedding Details

Macramé Wedding Details is inspired by last weeks feature the Boho Bride Wedding Inspiration. While collected inspiration for that wedding theme we couldn't help but start thinking how the knotty craft and decor staple, macramé, has returned in a big way. One quick search of #macramé on Instagram or Pinterest and you'll find thousands of beautiful knotted creations made from craft cord, hemp, jute, and yarn. 

So just what is macramé? Macramé is a form of textile-making using knots. Thanks to Vogue Magazine referring to macramé as "modern-chic" this popular craft technique exploded in home décor, jewelry, and clothing areas in American in the 1970's. However, macramé had been used as decor and decoration since ancient times. 

From backdrops, table runners, dresses, bridal bouquets, and chair adornments, we have gathered up eight amazing macramé wedding details to give you inspiration on how to incorporate this amazing art work into your wedding!

Romantic Wedding Inspiration

"Isn't it romantic? Music in the night, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic? Moving shadows write the oldest magic word, I hear the breezes playing in the trees above While all the world is saying you were meant for love..." Ella Fitzgerald - Isn't It Romantic? 

The sweet scent of roses strewn across an aisle way, flowy bridesmaids gowns that flit in the breeze, a canopy of trees twinkling with lights, and the epitome of femininity, romance, intimacy, and affection, displayed throughout your wedding reception through the use of velvet ribbons, plush pillows and petite roses. These are a few of the images that come to mind we when think of romantic wedding elements. 

The perfect color component to a romantic wedding? Rose Quartz. Pair this blush pink with lush greens and dashes of gold and Cupid himself, won't be able to help himself from falling in love.

  1. Peach Bourbon Thyme Smash via A Healthy Life For Me: The start of summer means peaches are coming into their peak season. This summertime refresher packs quite the punch with its fresh peach juice, bourbon, thyme and a spicy jalapeno simple syrup.
  2. The Firecracker via Creative Culinary: We're enjoying exploring flavored voldka's, it's a tough job but someone has to do it! So after a long day of searching for the perfect wedding cocktails we indulge in a little DIY spa-time and throw a couple cucumbers on our eyes... perfect for those left over cucumber slices from this watermelon, lime and cucumber cocktail. 
  3. Frose´ via W&P Design: "Summer Water" aka Rose' is the highlight of this grown-up slushy cocktail featuring dry rose', lemon juice and Vergano Americano Chinato.
  4. Jalepeno Grapefruit Margarita via Eat Well 101: What gives a magargita more kick? Adding freshly sliced jalapeno! They're the perfect compliment to the sweetly sour grapefruit and tequila combination.

Ravishing Red Wedding Bouquets

"Painting the roses red" - the Queen of Hearts was onto something.  Taking inspiration from the good ole American Flag, this month we're highlighting red bridal bouquets. 

Red is a passionate, energizing, warm color that radiates strong and powerful masculine energy. The color red also has a long tradition of significance in weddings. In China & Japan, red is the color of luck and happiness. In Indian cultures the color symbolizes purity. Red is also one of the most popular colors used on flags in the world. Approximately 77% of all flags include red. Red also happens to be one of the top two favorite colors of people.  

Will you be featuring this ravishing hue in your wedding?
