All trends come and go, but it seems like Macramé, which was hugely popular in the 70s, is back!
Over the past couple of years creative brides have been incorporating it into statement ceremony backdrops. It’s a perfect addition for a boho wedding.
Macramé is the art of knotting cord or string in pretty patterns. It can cover an archway, style venue chairs or even accessorise a bouquet. It can be used on it’s own but also paired with bold flowers and greenery for some extra glam.
This Old Home are a fantastic event styling team based in Belfast, the Wedding Journal previously worked alongside the team (Matt & Steph) on our Winter ’18 editorial shoot. They love to focus on creating an impact with carefully thought-out designs.
‘We enjoy working together with couples talking about the vibe they want for their day, creating something for them that compliments their chosen venue and brings that dream wedding image to life.’
Steph comments on how the they’ve seen a dramatic rise in couples searching for bespoke backdrops, whether they’re used for the altar at a ceremony, for photo booths or selfie stations, even as a decorative feature transforming a venue corner.
‘As trends come and go, it’s great to see couples see what’s possible, breaking away from more traditional themes. We build everything, so we love it especially when couples come to us with new and creative ideas, even things they think aren’t possible.’
The macramé trend can be used as a beautiful foundation to your bohemian décor, but can also be the star of the show!
