Wedding Wednesday: Art Inspiration

As an art-lover, I'm thrilled by the idea of art-inspired weddings. Here's some great ideas we came across for how to incorporate artistic elements into your wedding.

Floral design inspired by 17th Century Dutch still life paintings has been popping up everywhere lately. Though its inspiration is centuries old, it's loose, organic, and natural and this makes it very modern.

Wedding gown designer Danielle Marie Berg created a line of art-inspired gowns. This gown, the Helen, was inspired by the drapey gowns worn by Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha's sirens.

We've also seen tons of art-inspired wedding cakes. The sculptural nature of cake design makes it a great item for incorporating your favorite art work.

Museums and galleries are great venues for art-lover weddings and DC boasts tons of beautiful spaces that can be rented for weddings and events, a great way to incorporate your favorite style of art into your wedding design.

A creative alternative to the traditional guest book we're seeing everywhere is to have guests participate in creating a work of art at the reception.
