Hi, loves! It’s the weekend, but we know that doesn’t mean your wedding planning comes to a halt. That’s why we wanted to keep the fun going with this inspiring feature on wedding silhouettes. But first, what is a silhouette? A silhouette is “the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, especially in dim light”, according to the dictionary. In wedding decor, a silhouette (also referred to as a cameo) is essentially an outline of your profile and your significant other’s profile.

Here’s an example…

When used in weddings, silhouettes become very interesting (and personalized) decorations. Today we’re exploring three fun and easy ways to use silhouettes in weddings as a 1) guest book (or guest book alternative), 2) chair decor, and 3) cake topper. Read on to see how they’re used with charming finds from Simply Silhouettes, which offers a plethora of wedding silhouettes and cameos. Enjoy!

After the wedding, you can hang these on the wall from decorative hooks as charming bedroom decor.

3. Top the cake (or dessert) with a silhouette topper

And last but not least, embellish your cake (or pie or, in this case, donuts!) with a silhouette topper, like any of these:
