5 Ways to Add Texture to Your South Florida Wedding

Instead of flat and smooth, texture is dimensional. Texture can add energy and a vibrant look to your South Florida wedding reception and make it unlike any other event you have attended. Here are some simple ways to add texture and dimension to your South Florida wedding:

Wedding Gown: Ruffles, silk organza tiers, beading, a flower appliqué, even feathers all work to bring texture to life.

Cake: Pleats on cakes, quilting, lace replicas, ruffles, beading, linear dot designs you name it, guaranteed your cake designer has done it. However, these embellishments may cost more because of the time and degree of difficulty.

Linens: Napkins, tablecloths and chair covers, oh my!

Again, ruffles tablecloths on cocktail tables or perhaps a smooth tablecloth with textured napkins or a ruffled table runner—even burlap will draw the interest of your guests. Or those just wanting smooth linens but still looking for texture, consider wrapping silverware and napkins with twine and a succulent, or a twig of rosemary. Honestly, the accent ideas are endless. How about a woven charger plate to make that table décor pop? The simple addition of a charger plate takes your place setting up a notch.

Floral Design: Even floral choices like hydrangeas, peonies or ranunculus create a fluffy look compared to other streamlined types like tulips, tight roses or calla lilies. A moss table runner will certainly create texture as well as a conversation among guests.

Catering: Similarly, wheatgrass in lieu of a serving tray for butlered hors d’oeuvres makes an intriguing display. Tree slice serving trays create this element too with the rings from the tree in the center and the natural bark on the side.

These are just some ways to add texture to your South Florida wedding. However, adding texture is as diverse as your imagination will allow.
