Viva la velvet! The lush fabric isn't just for '90s slip dresses anymore. Brides left and right are draping their big days in swaths of velvet and it's not hard to see why this texturized trend is totally taking over 2018 nuptials. With a sumptuous feel and gorgeous jewel-tone hues, velvet is crushing it at the wedding game.
Whether it's for bridesmaid dresses or decor details, this cloth is cropping up everywhere. Yes, velvet can be used in variety ways at weddings—and did we mention that we're obsessed with them all? Some brides opt for just a delicate dose of vintage luxury by wrapping their bouquet in ribbons of the fabric.

Since this swanky fabric looks ahh-maze-ing in every color of the rainbow (not just in the deep, elegant emeralds and beautiful burgundies you expect), it can be featured in summer weddings as well in a bright, sunny hue.
