Marking a seventies renaissance, macramé is making waves in the world of weddings & this is one trend you will 'knot' want to miss...

Such is the frivolity of wedding trends, some come along and set the tone for years to come, à la the naked cake, while others pay a fleeting visit. Then there are the classics from eras gone by, those that make a resurgence with a nod to the present day - Hello and welcome back, Macramé!

Wondering what exactly macaramé is? Don’t worry, we have to admit that although distinctive in appearance, the term wasn’t one on our radar. ‘Knot’ to be mistaken for knitted textiles, macramé is created by weaving threads or cords together to create delicate or intricate knots. We have a certain Emily Katz to thank for the revival, due in no small part to her seriously covetable Instagram, brimming with inspiration on how to incorporate macramé in just about every way you could imagine (and some more!).

While we have seen beautiful palettes of watercolour dip-dyed macramé, more often than not, whimsy neutral tones have become a firm favourite with bohemian free-spirited brides. Draped along top tables with ivy and eucalyptus intertwined makes for a beautifully understated table dressing. Or if it’s something a little more statement you’re after, why not consider a magnificently intricate wall hanging that can play host to your cake table backdrop? The beauty is in the whimsical versatility that forgoes perfection in favour of a laid-back handmade feel; from macrame planters suspended from the ceiling to bouquet wraps - the perfect alternative if ribbons aren’t your thing. 

We can’t help but dream of the Renaissance Suite adorned with the textile touches, complimenting the marble accents of this contemporary space, with the late Summer light flooding in through the panoramic windows - simply dreamy!
