Trending Now: Dark Neutrals, Bold Lines and Masculine Wedding Details

Masculine wedding ceremony decor with pampas grass

What’s the latest trend on the wedding decor scene? It’s dark and it’s a little bit broody! We’re talking masculine wedding details and we are loving the modern and sleek look they’re bringing to weddings. When you think masculine decor, think bold, neutral colors like black, brown, camel, white and grey. Think floral, but in a less traditional sense with dried flowers, plants, succulents and flower varieties with intriguing textures and shapes. When it comes to this decor look, we’re seeing a lot of strong lines in both floral as well as rentals and a key element to this design trend is the mixture of different materials. Things like concrete, wood, metal and leather are popping up in not only ceremony and reception furniture, but also in floral containers, candle holders, invitation suites, tablescapes and even cake designs.

We’re here to show you how masculine wedding decor can be totally gorgeous! Before we start, let’s talk about the stunning setup above! We LOVE the neutral monochrome color palette, the linear look of the floor and the chairs, the little bit of beautiful texture brought in with the pampas grass and of course, all of the lush, boho plants! It’s the perfect example of beautiful, masculine decor!

One of our favorite elements of masculine wedding design is the look of incorporating mixed materials into your decor. Play up a darker color palette and create bold, strong lines with materials like metal, leather, stone, wood and modern ceramics. Mix them all together for a relaxed, eclectic look!

Sleek Tablescapes
