If you are interested in having a wedding that has a victorian and somewhat traditional feel, but can still be modern then a damask wedding may be the theme for you. Creating a cohesive them with the damask design is not difficult.
The first thing you will need to decide is what colors you want to use for the wedding. If you choose colors that are very contrasty, like black and white, then the design will look very modern, but will also feel formal and can have a hint of the traditional. It is all in how you handle the decor. It you have big, bold graphic splashes of damask then it will be more modern. If you keep the design small then it will feel more ornate and traditional, especially if you pick color that are more subtle and have a slight shift in value.
The first place that you will start your visual language is in you wedding invitations. This is where you can set the tone. Damask wedding invitations tend to work best when the design is limited to one side of the invitation, because otherwise the invitation can become too busy. Another great opportunity to use the pattern is on the backs of the invitations and rsvp cards.
This will give it a nice pop, this is typically seen in contemporary wedding invitations. You can add a pop of color by using ribbon to make it even more bold. A popular color palette is black, white and lime green. The invitation is a great way to set the tone and get good feel for how your decor can look. Don’t forget to repeat you invitation graphics because small bits of it repeated for labels, place cards and programs can make a huge difference in the way that the entire wedding decor looks.
Whatever direction you decide to go with your wedding, damask is a classic and gorgeous design that can go a long way towards setting the tone for your wedding.
