20 Geometric Wedding Ideas That Are Anything But Square
Newsflash: Shapes are cool (cue an I-told-you-so from your high-school geometry teacher). Sharp angles and abstract graphics have brought a modern edge to the wedding world, inspiring designs for contemporary brides and grooms interested in clean lines and perfect circles.
