An agate is a semi-precious gemstone with crystal formations similar to those found in geodes. An agate is characterized by incredibly vibrant colors and distinct layers. We simply HAD to create a wedding look inspired by this magical stone.
Rock the Look
An agate-inspired wedding wouldn’t be nearly as special without at least a few genuine agates displayed throughout the ceremony and reception. The table number card shown with an agate anchor is a perfect example of how to use agates as décor in a simple yet impactful way. Of course, you don’t have to stick to real agates. The wedding cake featured is decorated to look like an agate and look how beautiful it turned out!
Watercolor is an inexpensive way to mimic the look of agates. It allows you to feature rich, gorgeous color in a natural and casual way. We chose the Watercolor Whimsy Wedding Invitation to introduce our agate wedding look, and it turned out perfectly! Best of all, these invitations come with free response postcards. Check out the colors available and choose something that coordinates with your agate wedding colors.
Now it’s time to incorporate your agate wedding colors throughout the wedding. We love the idea of cascading flowers along the reception tables in varying shades of the same color. The bridesmaid dresses are also a great place for showcasing your choice of colors. Again, we love the varying shades of purple shown here because it coordinates so well with the agate wedding look. Throw in some personalized details like custom wedding napkins and you’ll blow your wedding guests away!
