Trending: Geode | BBJ LinenSara Lynn Photography | Petal & Bean | Settings Event Rental

Brides and grooms are going back to nature in a big way at some of the most exciting weddings of the season. It's all about the gleam of crystals and the shimmer of minerals, the mesmerizing swirls of geodes and the layered patterns of natural stone. The trend captures looks that are as old as time in an interpretation that is always new and exciting. 

Creatively Colorful

A table setting that combines dramatic deep-toned linen with the subtle texture of grey napkins appears demure, but the theme's inspiration is taken from the dramatic yellow and black butterfly wings.

Extravagantly Simple

Marbled grey frosting on the wedding cake's upper tiers allows shimmering rock crystal highlights to shine atop a bronzed gold base. In another vignette, the exquisite ring ensemble is displayed on a natural geode, emphasizing total attention to detail.

Multicolored, deep-toned florals play beautifully against predominant violet, gold and grey hues, evoking a rich, traditional feeling.

Fresh and Bright

For an outdoor setting, it's the geometric shapes of brass-accented clear glass containers played against an architectural background that surprises and delights. Patterned white linen covering the table is a perfect complement to the theme.

Surrounded by the beauty of nature, each place setting is adorned with a single feather and a slice of natural geode, proving that simplicity can result in perfection. 

Pale and Cool Blue

A mix of pastel blooms tied with blue silk ribbons becomes the bridal bouquet and reappears as tabletop display, along with accents and rock crystal in icy blue and paler versions. 

Shades of Pink and Green

A lighthearted scheme that capitalizes on contrasts was the inspired choice for a bride with a middle name of Krystal. From sparkling "liquid green" glass chargers to amethyst geodes, natural crystals underscore this celebration.

Distinctively Different

Even the wedding cake departs from traditional: Its square layers, displayed against a backdrop of silver circles, drip with amethyst tones that look like a mineral "motherlode."

Pay attention to the details: The shape of the wedding stationery reinforces the crystal theme. The color theme is set right from the start, and a trendy geode pendant combines with traditional pearls for an unexpected bit of style.

Cool and Neutral

There's something calming and stunningly beautiful about the swirling patterns and subtle graining of marble and granite. BBJ captures that look in linen named Azure Agate. Here, it's combined with a solid color napkin of Rain Faille, simple glassware and banded china set atop a Braid Gold Brown charger. With a simple centerpiece of pale blooms, who needs anything more?

Gold and Silver Veins

A swirling mix of gold and silver suggests the richness of the earth in a linen pattern that comes alive with the addition of a Lino Ginger Glitter charger and napkin of harvest shantung. Aptly-named Magma table linen can be dressed up or down as desired!

Sweet florals and bolder geodes can live harmoniously together. A simple wood table is softened with a cascading runner of palest mauve and harmonizing napkins at each place, while flatware and accessories add a golden glow.

Opposites may well attract, but beautiful blooms, spectacular geodes, and polished jewel-tone slices used as nameplates just naturally go together for a setting that is charmingly understated.
