Macrame’s diachronic art is the trend that really stands out amongst the new wedding trends of 2017! We have all admired ornate motifs in clothes, jewellery and decorations, created with Macrame’s technique, a form of art by which we create decorative motifs with cords without needles or crochets, but by hand making knots. Elegant monochrome or colourful Macrame patterns can be used to decorate your wedding and really make a difference! Ideally suited to Boho-styled weddings, but also romantic or even in their simplest form, to modern, minimal weddings. Take a look below at how you can apply Macrame in your decoration, wedding table, bouquet and wedding cake!
DECORATION: WITH KNOTS, COLOUR AND IMAGINATION!
The new, “Macrame” trend is not only unique but also versatile! So it can dominate the background creating a wonderful setting or it can be used as a runner on wedding tables, on dinner towels rings, or it can even decorate the guests’ sitting plan in an elaborate manner. If the reception area allows it, you can highlight your wedding theme and add Macrame motifs to various places, by hanging Macrame flowerpots over the tables, or if you are outdoors you can hang them in the trees and add a magical, dreamlike effect. The options are endless. Let your imagination do all the work!
BOUQUETS: WITH A MACRAME KNOT
Forget ribbons and cords when it comes to tying your bouquet. If you adopt Macrame’s trend, the finish of your wedding bouquet will have a wonderful Macrame piece that will contrast with the flowers and will definitely add spark! It fits the most plethoric bouquets as well as the simplest and round bouquets, as long as you choose macrame’s pattern according to the colours of your wedding flowers, the wedding dress and the overall style of your wedding.
WEDDING CAKE: TOPPED WITH MACRAME!
Combining Macrame’s technique with your wedding cake really brings the whole end result to a brand new level!
