If you’re feeling a little lackluster on the inspiration front when it comes to your wedding décor, it may seem like an easy thing to put on the back burner in light of everything else you have to deal with on your to-do list (vendors, music, flowers to name a few). But don’t give up hope! One of our favorite ways to pull décor inspiration is by looking to the runways and the amazing set designers and florists that build dreamy, creative catwalks that transport and immerse you. Although clearly over-the-top and on much more grand scale than what you’ll be doing for your wedding, the takeaways can be translated perfectly for your ceremony or reception. After all, an aisle and a runway are quite similar!
We’ve seen lots of instances of runway set trends translating to wedding trends—for instance, take the Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2017 show: those large glass boxes filled with artfully arranged florals that seemed to be growing organically (by Putnam+Putnam) soon trickled into the wedding world (imagine pillars with acrylic boxes and a smaller scale as aisle markers). Or how about the amazing Christian Dior Fall/Winter Haute Couture 2012 show with those insane flower walls? Now, you can’t throw a bouquet and not hit a flower wall at a wedding! Because Dior is just amazing and creates the most incredible massive floral installations, they wowed at the Spring/Summer 2014 Couture show with a huge, wild canopy of flowers—and how many similar installations have you seen just like it from real weddings on Pinterest? We’d venture to guess a lot. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite runway set designs from the past year to get your creativity flowing—get ready to pin all of these to your wedding board!
