Abstract geometric art is all the rage lately and it’s easy to see why: it’s simple, colorful, modern, and easy to make. The repeating patterns and shapes are used in everything from television commercials to T-shirts to one of a kind art at high-end galleries. In case you missed this trend, here are a few everyday life examples.

As with all aesthetic trends it has even made its way to weddings. Thank goodness because I love the modern little twist these abstract details give to a wedding, and I love all the various ways in which you can do it.

For starters geometric patterns look great on a cake. Whether you want to cover it with bright shapes or just add a few pale triangles here and there it makes for a great effect.

I also love love love geometric patterns on invitations and save-the-dates. It not only is a super easy way to use your wedding colors, but it also helps set the tone: this wedding is going to be chic, upbeat, possibly even a little funky and definitely not stuffy at all.

But my favorite place to use the geometric theme is on the escort cards. Escort cards have gotten wildly out of control recently as every couple tries to up the ante by making them as elaborate as possible. But with a little bright construction paper by your side and maybe (if you are feeling adventurous) a set of watercolors, you can create simple escort cards that are still show stoppers but not over the top.
