Velvet has become a fashion trend once again, so it's no surprise that the smooth, soft fabric is making its way into wedding details and décor! Going back to the first uses of the material, velvet was associated with nobility throughout history, so it makes sense that it also makes an appearance in modern-day opulent weddings. The fabric was also very prevalent in the fashion of the 1990s, which is making its cyclical style comeback this decade.
While we're not expecting velvet to replace the much-loved lace in bridal gowns, many couples are finding ways to incorporate the material into their celebration. Working particularly well for fall and winter fêtes due to its heavy-woven fibers, velvet can be used on everything from the invites, to accessories, to upholstered furniture at the after-party.
To inspire the use of this chic trend, we've gathered nine ways to incorporate velvet elements into your wedding day, below! For more inspiration, click each photo to see more from the real wedding!
