Put the focus on your florals with translucent wedding-day details.
Acrylic and Lucite materials are becoming more and more popular in home décor, so it's no wonder weddings are also taking this trend into account! Incorporating the translucent details are a great way to stay on-trend, while also focusing more attention on your wedding flowers, tablescapes, or the beauty of your venue.
Start off your wedding celebration with clear invitations and follow through with acrylic escort cards, or display wedding flowers on translucent risers at your ceremony. Surround flickering candles with acrylic boxes on your reception tables, and top your cake with a clear topper emblazoned with a monogram that will appear as though it's floating above the confection.

1. Wedding Invitation
Whether you and your future spouse can't decide on a color scheme for your invitations or you'll be having translucent details throughout your big day, starting your nuptials off on a blank slate with an acrylic invitation showcasing white lettering is a wonderful way to set the bar with a stylish invite that feels more like a keepsake than simply a piece of paper.

2. Fashion Accessories
Since most of the items you'll be carrying in your bridal clutch will be pretty, consider toting around an on-trend translucent clutch on the big day. For a stylish option that also hides the items contained in your purse, look for an acrylic design embellished with fabric flower petals or your monogram. Photo by Heather Waraksa
3. Ceremony Décor
Let your wedding flowers be the star of the show when displaying them on clear risers behind your ceremony structure and at the entrance to the aisle. For an added bonus, exchange vows beneath an entirely clear structure!

9. Guest Reception Chairs
Wedding reception chairs set the tone for the evening and, these days, have personality all their own. However, to put the focus on the table décor, consider clear Chiavari chairs that blend seamlessly into the design of the day. Photo by Amy & Stuart Photography; Event Design by White Lilac Inc.
