Shabby Chic themes have been trending for a while now in parties and events… but we rarely see them in weddings here in the Middle East.
According to Wikipedia, shabby chic is "a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique. At the same time, a soft, opulent, yet cottage-style décor, often with an affected feel is emphasized to differentiate it from genuine period décor."
Shabby Chic weddings are perfect for a young and fun couple!
Remember shabby chic is all about mixing and matching colors and patterns, from floral, to polka dots and stripes. But stay away from darker shades.
