We often find that interior design and home styling trends filter their way into the wedding industry and there’s one trend that is set to stay in the spotlight: marble. This will forever be a fabulous choice of wedding theme for the modern couple who want to give their day a luxurious edge. It’s the definition of understated glamour, so we’re here to tell you how you can pull it off for your very own special day. Let’s get inspired…
Marble works wonderfully with copper for an industrial, urban vibe. But if you want something that’s really going to make a statement, consider pairing it with brighter colours for the ultimate contrast. You can make it suitable for any season too, metallic accents are a gorgeous fit for winter while hot pink and mustard yellow shades are divine for the summer months.

Kick-start your theme with marble wedding stationery. Opt for high-quality card with a marble effect, finished off with calligraphy and a velvet ribbon. We suggest following the stationery design throughout the rest of your on-the-day stationery, including the seating plan, menu, place cards and more.
Geometric marble cards are also a stylish choice for your escort cards or table plan – you can adorn them with copper calligraphy or hang geometric shapes from a copper pipe. Adorn it with foliage or succulents to maintain the minimalist vibe that is still so on trend.
When it comes to the rest of your wedding décor, there really are plenty of options to keep you feeling inspired. Marble candle holders dotted along your wedding tables will offer a subtle nod towards the wedding theme, or you could go all out with a marble backdrop decorated with blousy blooms and handfuls of greenery. It would look beautiful for your photographs or for a modern DIY photo-booth.

If you want to incorporate your marble palette into your aisle style, you can! More and more brides are straying away from tradition when it comes to their wedding dress, saying goodbye to a traditional white gown and instead opting for something that will seriously turn heads. A flowing dress with white, grey and blue hues is the perfect addition to your marble-esque wedding day and it’s made for the rule-breaking bride!
When it comes to your cake, we think the simpler the better. A barely-decorated cake covered in lashings of marble icing will be all you need to make an impact. If you do want some additional décor, consider asking your cake maker to use subtle gilded accents for an extra dash of luxury.
A marble wedding really is rather swoon-worthy and there are so many ways you can create it, we could go on forever.
