Wedding trends and styles are constantly changing, much like fashion and design. That is why linen companies, such as Santa Barbara Wedding Style member Luxe Linen, look to fashion and runway shows to discover what are the next hottest looks, textures and patterns which will define an upcoming wedding style. If you think about it, table tops cover the most surface area of any event space, just like clothing; and therefore these fabrics, or linens create ‘your look’ just like clothing does.
Recently we were thrilled to attend Luxe Linen’s pop up showcase which provided local wedding and event planners a sneak peek into the prevailing tastes and table-top looks that are sure to be hot and unique.
What we found:
- BOLD is in! Bold colors and bold patterns. YAY! Muted monochromatic are fading away, literally!
- TROPICAL is saying ALOHA! Perfect for a Santa Barbara style wedding, we loved seeing the large leaf patterns in both linens and pillow cases.
- CLASSICS will always be here to stay, think LBD. Pearls and ivories will never go away in the wedding world, but Luxe Linen offers these looks with shine, texture and iridescence
- METALLICS will be with us for a while. With varied composition and patterns the golden child of linen can be rented in mixed metals or a simple single color.
Just like fashion there are fundamentals to what linens bring to your wedding design as well as individuality and out of the box material, textiles and styles as showcased below.
