I think I am falling in love with damask. I can see it used for a DIY photobooth, guest book, maybe (maybe) a few table runners, and some accenting.
The thing is, all the “damask theme” weddings I’ve seen include the damask pattern on their invites. I’ve already found invites that I love, and they are not damask. Will it be strange to have so much damask at the wedding, but none in the invites? Sorry if this seems like a silly question. You girls are the only people who understand how important “the little details” are to a crafty bride

I think it will be fine! You don’t have to include every little detail of your wedding into your invites :).

Part 2 of my question:
Do you see damask as more of a modern element? Or can it fit well with a vintage-theme wedding? (I’m going vintage for sure.)

I actually think damask works better with vintage than modern. That said, I see no reason why anyone needs to adhere rigidly to a theme. You can do whatever you like as long as tyou think it looks pretty. Being to literal with themes can IMO make things a bit cheesy.

im doing damask! but i’ve never really thought about it as a theme. Im going to do damask squares under the centerpiece instead of table runners and just have it here and there, i dont want it to overwhelm. im trying to think what i have..a cardbox, bridesmaids bouquet ribbon will be damask, my invitations and i bought 4 little votives at marshalls the other day ill probably throw on the cake table. thats about it. then black linens and red flowers for the centerpieces.

I love Damask too, but didn’t want it to be “overkill”! My colors were black and fuschia with damask. My invitations were not damask (just black and white). At the ceremony, we only had a damask box for the programs. At the reception, we had a damask card box and our signs had a damask background. Let me know if you want to see pics of anything. Have FUN planning!

I think your on the right track-Too much Damask can be over whelming.How ’bout instead of table squares you get vases and decoupage or wrap them in damask gift paper,scrapbooking paper or fabric and let that be the touch on the table.You can also do a damask table skirt with the solid color overlay on top so there is just a “peek-a-boo” of damask on the table showing at the bottom of the table.

I went a little damask crazy! Linens, accesories, seating chart (we used the names of cities we’d visited for our table names), photobooth strip.. etc. But it turned out Awesome!

I’m using damask too, but I mostly have accents – table runners, table numbers, invites. I’m using more black and white.

I am planning a damask wedding only as an Accent. People are so afraid of using too much or too little. I am having a vintage theme almost wine themed wedding and reception. The damask will be accented by a deep red, eggplant and i just want a pattern to add a splash of black. It will be very sleek dark overflowing with spot lighting and LOTS of candles. Praying for the best!
