Fashion is often the inspiration for event decor and wedding design and today we’ve got a perfect example of how the fashion runways of Paris can inspire your bridal shower (or even your wedding the Washington DC area) with amazing visual details and nods to your favorite designers. Washington DC wedding planner and designer extraordinaire, Elizabeth Duncan Events put together a fun and modern wedding table to inspire your wedding, inspired by her favorite fashion design and looks from this season. (Don’t miss her tropical beach wedding ideas or preppy gingham rehearsal dinner too!) Today’s featured runway-to-table inspiration rainbow hued design was inspired by the very colorful and geometric pattern of a gorgeous gown by Balmain.

There is a lot going on with this bridal shower table – which would also be just as perfect for a rehearsal dinner – and it all seems to work. We especially love those table numbers made from paint chips! And, a simple ribbon tie around the back takes a chair from boring to “wow” for very little money. Infusing the bright, pops of color with florals and ribbon together with a black and white linen and decor pieces is incredible and we can’t thank Sweet Tea Photography enough for sharing these vibrant images with us!


From Elizabeth: Pops of color add a punch here and there in this wedding inspiration. This year, the fashion runways were full of rainbow stripes. Blending the rainbow trend with bold geometrics and a little Kate Spade preppy chic, resulted in a fun and vibrant bridal shower design.
