Trendspotting: Nebulous, Airy, Levitational Wedding Designs

Lately, we’ve been gravitating towards the looks that, well, defy gravity. Those levitational wedding designs that can only be described as nebulous, airy, and otherworldly. This wedding trend floated simultaneously into our hearts and into the spotlight, as we’re seeing more and more creations across the floral, fashion and even dessert board. So let’s take a walk, hand in hand, through this fresh gallery of cloudlike wedding inspiration.

Suspended floral canopies are one thing, but when they mimic fluffy clouds it’s a whole game changer. At least for us! We’ll be oohing and ahh-ing over this jumbo sized work of art for days (but realistically, probably for years)!
