My Favourite Things about a Marble Theme
There are so many reasons to love marble. Due to its versatile nature you can keep it soft and subtle or strong and bold with lots of strong colours. You can even add touches of colour to it. Each of these techniques can result in a different look for your wedding day. For example, pale pink and mint green colours can work really well for more of a subtle look. Alternatively, you can achieve a bolder look with deep purples, blues and black. Gold and bronze create a stylish and luxurious look with marble.
Marble natural lends itself to a chic and contemporary look, however it also works in rustic and antique styling too. The key is to simply pick one look or theme and stick to that!

The Benefits of using Marble for your Wedding
Consequently marble isn’t popular for nothing! Due to all the pros of this beautiful material, I’ve put together a list of the top 6 benefits:
- Marble can be used in a soft or bold way
- The material has a high end, expensive look
- It is versatile and be used with a variety of looks
- Marble can be mixed with other colours or used chromatically (black and white)
- Use it in a chic contemporary way, or an old-fashioned style
- Marble mixes beautifully with metallic colours such as gold, bronze and rose gold
I would totally recommend marble if you are going for a stylish and high end look for your wedding!
Where Do I Start?
So where do you start when it comes to a marble theme, and how can you use marble in your wedding? Before browsing through the amazing images below, consider the different props and decorations you will need for your wedding day.
For example, start with one area for your wedding day and make a list of the items you will need to fill that space. Accordingly, you can now do this for every space that you will use on your wedding day. As result this will create a logical plan of action, and will also help you to form a sense of consistency between the items you will be using. For example, if you will need to use lanterns for your reception tables, then why not opt to use them for your gift table and welcome area as well? This ‘overlapping’ of items not only makes your job easier but it reinforces your theme and creates the consistency described above. Here’s a list to get you started:
- Candle Holders
- Table Runners, Linen and Table Numbers
- Seating Chart
- Name Place Cards
- Plates and Cutlery
- Bridal Party Attire
