CONCRETE COOL: YOUR MODERN WEDDING INSPO OF THE WEEK
 

I LOVE concrete. Clean and simple, it makes the perfect blank canvas for any space or event or design. Modern design is clearly the vibe here, but I honestly believe it can work with so many styles! Take a look - we have a more traditionally minimal designed setup with wooden chairs on a NY rooftop, we have  a trendy macrame tapestry creating a fun, boho backdrop to say 'I Do", and we have some romantic, concrete inspired macaroons for dessert. Dress it up or play it down, concrete can make such a cool statement at your wedding!

 

Don't be scared off by the bad rap concrete has. It doesn't have to be overly industrial or cold. Playing with elements that would normally be put together is one of my favorite things (hello colored wedding dresses). Mixing candles and concrete create a warm and moody vibe. Layering textiles with concrete adds a fun play of texture. Both add warmth (literally), and bring a bring an element of coziness to your day (or any event or your home for that matter).

LISTEN,

I love weddings. I think it is a magical thing to witness two people look each other in the eyes and, overwhelmed by love, string together a bunch of words, promising to choose love each and every day, for the rest of their lives. It's impossible to know what the future holds, but in that moment everything is so certain. All the ugliness and pain and sadness in the world fade away. In that moment there is pure joy radiating from their love.

BUT LISTEN,

Weddings are outdated. The traditions, the dresses, the decor, the expectations. Traditions can be nice, and by all means if you want to have the world's most traditional wedding do what will make you happy! (but then again, you probably wouldn't be reading this blog post right now...).
