Va-va-velvet! This texture of eras past becomes new again with modern touches.

Turn of the century trends come to life with dreamy velvet accents. Jewel toned hues–think sultry raspberry, deep teal, and stately navy–combine to strike the perfect chord of old world refinement. From couture fashion accessories to cascading ribbon-wrapped bouquets, add touches of this soft, yet sophisticated textile to give your nuptials an elegant edge.
