Wedding Decor Trends: Acrylic (Plexiglass)

 

The use of acrylic (aka Plexiglass) in wedding and event design looks like it is a trend here to stay. Over the past couple of years, we have seen event designers get more innovative with not just clear acrylic but also mirrored, frosted, and textured. As we approach wedding proposal season followed by wedding planning season, here are a few of our favorite projects for inspiration.

Dance Floor

We can’t get enough of this trend! You can increase your event space and your guests get to dance on water. What’s not to love? This pool cover has its own project spotlight, but we still wanted to include it on this list. GTX Event Productions used 24 clear acrylic sheets to support a full night of dancing.

Cake Stands

We’ll admit that this cake stand is more along the lines of cake swing, but that’s the awesome thing about plastic… It’s versatile! Juan at Belle Flor created this custom display. If you are looking for something a little more understated, other popular options are five sided boxes and waterfall tables.

Decor

Many customers don’t realize that acrylic comes in a huge array of colors, textures, and finishes. Our standard acrylic color line alone has 60+ options. We have seen sheets hung from the ceiling, high-end art installations, custom planters, podiums, and more. Plastic is perfect for repeated use so event companies will invest in a piece that can be used as needed in future designs.

This decor designed by Bella Flora of Dallas is an acrylic dream! They utilized plastic from floor to ceiling for a dreamy visual effect.

This ceiling and entryway display was created by John Goolsby of Dallas. The vibrant colors create a unique atmosphere, and their transparency still allows light reach the tables.

Signage / Invitations

Engraving on clear acrylic adds a unique touch that matches any decor. The most popular applications are:

  • Invitations
  • Table numbers
  • Signage
  • Seating charts
