I love the fusion of different cultures into weddings and have been watching with interest the latest fashion to storm into wedding world replacing the 2012 chevron trend.
Ikat is not a classic and timeless design either for weddings, but never the less we are going to share a few inspirations with you over the next week using Ikat within a wedding design as it is about to storm wedding world for 2013.
Ikat is a dyeing technique similar to tie and die and popular in many Asian countries, the actual word Ikat originates from Indonesia and the designs, I think, have a lovely ethnic quality to them and remind me of a very 70´s bedlinen I had as a child in the classic peach and grey!
I love the use of Ikat in this wedding featured above by High Society as there are a lot of interesting design and styling elements pulling this fabulous wedding design together.
Ikat would be perfect for a bohemian beach style wedding in shades of whites, blues and turquoises and I do want to incorporate this design into one of our gorgeous beach weddings we are designing here in September.
Here though, I love the combination of the rather grand, stately venue as a backdrop to the ornamental decor, from the vivid colours of the florals, combined with the ethnic qualities of the Moroccan style lamps and Ikat table runners.
There is such a use of contradictory styles and yet they work so well together to create a stunning setting for this beautiful wedding.
To see more of this gorgeous Ikat styled wedding do head over to High Society.
