Trending silhouettes kind of remind me of the good old days. I still remember one of my first art projects as a child in kindergarten: My teacher set up one of those old school projectors where it casts a light on the wall and she had each one of her crazy five-year-old students (myself included!) sit on a stool in front of the light while she traced the shadow of our profiles on a piece of craft paper that she had taped to the wall. We all left kindergarten that day with an outline, or silhouette of our own profiles, which when we were five, was the coolest possible thing imaginable!
One trending use of silhouettes that I cannot get enough of is the use of cutesy silhouette cutouts on top of the wedding cake instead of those little plastic dudes. Take a look at this picture I found on Pinterest to see what I mean. Really, how adorable is that? I love it!
You can carry trending silhouettes to your wedding invitations, too! Our Vintage Silhouettes Invitation is a popular design, which features an oval graphic along the top of the invite that show silhouettes of the bride and groom. One of my personal favorite silhouette invites is our Hipster Silhouette Invitation, and this design is right up my alley! It features a silhouette of a bride and groom, only with a twist. The groom’s silhouette is only a pair of black-rimmed hipster glasses and a skinny tie, and the bride’s
silhouette is simply her long hair. The fun diagonal-striped border gives it an extra hip and retro touch to take it to the top of my list when it comes to favorite designs!
