Velvet wedding details can add a classic luxurious feel to your big day, or depending on the color and style, create a vintage atmosphere. It has been a sought after textile since at least the 14th century, where it originated in the Far East. Its irresistible softness continues to enchant to this day. Even if you only choose two simple colors for your theme, velvet will add that bit of texture that the eye craves. Here are 14 ideas for using velvet in your celebration.
