Trending Now: Laser-Cut Wedding Ideas
If you're a bride-to-be with a critical eye, you're not alone. A lot of work (and even more money!) goes into creating the most magical day of your life. We can't blame you for refusing to settle for anything less than perfect when designing your ceremony and reception—it's your big day, after all. If there's anything we've learned about brides who know exactly what they want, it's that they're up to date on all of the latest wedding trends. The latest to hit the wedding world? Laser-cut details.
There are so many advantages to laser-cut big-day elements. Laser-cutting creates seamlessly precise lines, the result of a computer-programed, high-power beam that cuts out your desired template on a myriad of mediums. The technique's versatility is what makes it such a great choice for wedding décor: Invites, signage, and even furniture can be laser-cut to create big-day details that'll be the focal point of your celebration.
With laser-cutting, the visions you have for your wedding venue are never too big to accomplish. Take Calder Clark's custom-made, cut-out bar, which displayed fresh foliage, for example. Clark topped the bar with a granite counter and accessorized with Lucite chairs to work the wedding's modern theme into this cocktail hour area.
This wedding trend is particularly exciting because it feels so futuristic—we have a feeling we'll be seeing more high-tech methods of design in the wedding sphere in the next coming years. Looking for more ways to make this modern style your own? Take a hint from one of the following laser-cut ideas that wowed guests at real weddings. Any of these looks could influence your own made-to-order creation.
