9 Whimsical Ways to Use Acrylic in your Wedding Decor
We’ve fallen head over heels for acrylic wedding decor and love seeing the creative ways couples incorporate it into their big day. And when acrylic is so versatile and easy to use (not to mention safer!), it’s not hard to see why plexiglass is one of the hottest trends of the year. Small touches of acrylic can go a long way in creating modern, chic decor with a hint of whimsy. From welcome signs and place cards to invitation suites and seating charts, acrylic is the perfect blank canvas for striking calligraphy or bold colors. And we’ve rounded up nine of our favorite ways to use acrylic that prove it’s a trend that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
Now that online registries conveniently allow gifts to be sent directly to the couple, gift tables at the wedding tend to be smaller in size.

This sleek, personalized acrylic card box fits right into any wedding theme and can become a memorable keepsake in your home for years to come.
