13 Velvet Wedding Ideas That Are Crushing It

Hi, we're the Tidewater and Tulle crew, and we're addicted to velvet. We think everything should be wrapped in this sumptuous and soft fabric, and we couldn't be more excited that it is a current wedding and fashion trend making its way around the world! From ribbons to ring boxes to linens, velvet shines brightest in a variety of hues perfect for fall and winter wedding celebrations. Curated from Etsy and from our fellow wedding editors, we gathered up the chicest and most luxurious details to inspire any bride or groom whose hearts match our own in velvety goodness. Now pardon us as we go cuddle with our velvet quilts while wearing velvet jammies on our velvet couch.
