Wedding Trend: Geodes and Agates

One trend we wouldn’t mind continuing to stick around is incorporating these beautiful stones into your special day. We’ve been seeing this trend for the past few years and love seeing all the different ways it can be incorporated into wedding design. Coming in vibrant to neutral colors and stunning sparkle, they are sure to catch everyone’s eye! We are especially loving the watercolor meets agate designs we are seeing as of late.

And can you believe some of these cakes are edible?! These stunning masterpieces are made out of sugar and are absolutely mesmerizing. You can add this trend into your dessert or almost any part of your wedding, including invitations, calligraphed agate slices, and table numbers. Check out these photos for inspiration!

 

Here are a few pictures from a CBE Real Wedding where we incorporated the look of the agate trend originally featured on the couple’s invite.
