21 Vinyl Ideas That'll Make Designing Your Wedding Easy
Vinyl can be an unexpected, yet useful material for elevating wedding décor and details. Best of all, it's durable, versatile, and affordable—which means that the textile can be used throughout multiple parts of your big day. The environmentally friendly plastic is as aesthetically pleasing as it is convenient, too. Vinyl can take the form of any customized design—no matter the shape or color—making it a fit for all wedding styles.
The most popular way to use vinyl for wedding décor is in the form of a decal. Decals are stickers made from the material that can easily be applied to and removed from most surfaces. Check out how one couple used a vinyl decal, designed by Jem & I, to transform an otherwise simple glass display into a bloom-filled sign (with a little floral help from Booshi). The multiple fonts subtly complement one another while ensuring the rest of the arrangement had a chance to shine. The overall look is a fresh, modern take on a welcome sign.
Wedding signage isn't the only way to utilize a vinyl decal. Ahead, you'll discover how couples stuck sweet messages onto their venue's bathroom mirrors, decorated their dance floors with a large monogram, or adorned their getaway cars with a "Just Married" sticker—all using vinyl. You can also use this medium in other, non-sticker forms, too—consider creating a floatie installation if you're tying the knot poolside, for example. No matter how you choose to use vinyl on your big day, you'll find that the unique textile makes for modern design details that have major impact.
