Trending Now: Scroll Wedding Details
Scrolls might be most commonly known as an old method of communication, but they're just as relevant today—the classic form of stationery has made a major comeback in the world of weddings. Thanks to their soft, romantic look and versatility, brides and grooms are using scrolls as big-day menus, signs, backdrops, and more. From small, banner-like iterations to large, cascading displays, scrolls can add an elegant feel to any reception or ceremony. They can be elevated with classic touches, like intricate calligraphy, gold detailing, and deckled edges, but they can have a minimalistic effect, too. Opting for a modern stand for a simple scroll seating chart, for example, can easily make the look more contemporary.
Not quite convinced that a scroll is right for your wedding day's décor? Just look to the ideas ahead, which prove that you can modify this trend in ways that both work for your event style while still feeling unmistakably refined. Those characteristics are the main appeal of scrolls, after all. Take this colorful seating assignment by Lovingly Yours Events, for example.
