‘Don’t be a square!’ As Mia Wallace said to Vincent Vega right before that iconic dancing scene in Pulp Fiction. All joking aside, geometric shapes are very much on trend right now in wedding décor. Think about embracing clean geo lines and greenery for a nod to the modern trend that’s sweeping Instagram.
But of course, using geo lines doesn’t have to automatically make your wedding a neo-modern, paired back affair. Indeed, it’s chic to mix and match with touches of minimalism contrasting against influences of vintage, romantic or elegance.
Think about all sort of different lines, such as honeycomb, hexagons, triangles, interlocking squares and literally everything in between. Play with colours, textures and metals for a really show stopping look.

Think about terrariums filled with succulents such as cacti, or mix it up with candles, or softer blooms for a wonderful contrast. Stack them on wooden accents or in the middle of greenery. Look for mini lanterns with glass sides and fill with battery operated fairy lights, or design some bespoke laser cut-out hexagon wedding table numbers. Geo styled menus or place cards can work really well too for a more subtle hit of the trend.
Investing in a stunning backdrop will pay huge dividends for the overall look of your wedding venue. Think about all sorts of geometric shapes and angles, such as triangles, hexagons, circles, etc. Metal is very much in keeping with a modern style or trend, or why not go for wood for a different feel altogether? Intersperse them with flowers or candles or even go with cardboard or streamers made out to 3-D geometric shapes in bright colours for a new take on the trend.
Around the room
Dotting a few well-placed pieces around your wedding venue will reinforce your trend and keep the atmosphere flowing all evening long. Think about larger lanterns and lamps, filled with candles, florals and even light bulbs. Use them to line aisles or even as hanging features over tables for an awe inspiring look. Why not design some custom signage for the back of the newly married couple’s chairs for the perfect photo?
If you’re not keen on making too much of a statement with geometric shapes, then why not go for something more dramatic with your cake? Think about creating stunning effects with different geo effects on your tiers. Think about using contrasting texture effects, such as the marble look, metallic and naked elements. Also why not use an angular cake stands for the crowning glory?
