Minimalist couples, this one’s for you. Lucite and acrylic décor have seeped into the wedding world, and it’s making modern weddings better than ever. Reflective, transparent, and stylish, these Lucite wedding ideas instantly add a touch of contemporary chic to any ceremony or reception, regardless of wedding theme or style. Simply pair acrylic wedding ideas with pampas grass to soften things up, gilded accents to make a statement of elegance, or industrial details for an edgy effect. It's as simple as that!

One of the best things about Lucite is its versatility. Lucite makes for a trendy alternative to paper—think invitations to set the tone for your wedding and escort cards to liven up a seating chart display. Just have it etched or emblazoned with scrawling calligraphy for an instant note of romance. Lucite can also liven up a tabletop, thanks to elements like clear place cards and menus to serveware and table numbers.

On a more grandiose level, Lucite also makes for some unique signs or stunning art installations—perfect for a ceremony backdrop. Fill Plexiglass pillars or clear tables with florals and greenery for a 3D effect. We also love Lucite chairs at a ceremony or reception—they simultaneously look mod and glam, while creating a spacious effect thanks to their translucence.

Acrylic wedding décor is best used when it complements rather than upstages the other wedding décor because the true beauty in Lucite is that it can elevate a space without stealing eyes away from the rest of the wedding. With its see-through effect, it subtly blends into its surroundings while still making a striking statement.

Just take a look at these amazing Lucite wedding ideas below to see how it’s done.

Acrylic chairs in a glamorous ceremony setting like San Francisco City Hall can bring a fresh touch to an elegant space. This couple kept the setup minimal with simple floral arrangements along the aisle.

Use acrylic stands to flank the area where you say "I do." These arrangements by Ines & Marie were placed atop acrylic stands by the altar and by the ceremony entrance. After the ceremony, you can use the same acrylic installations for your reception!

Acrylic ghost chairs and pampas grass centerpieces merge indie and modern styles. Complete with ocean views, this Santorini reception is the stuff of dreams.

An elegant way to announce table assignments is via a Lucite seating chart that doubles as a small art installation. This seating chart gets multidimensional with back-to-back Lucite and a lush bed of flowers.

Hexagonal Lucite escort cards are a stylish alternative to traditional paper and make for a beautiful display when placed close together.

Instead of having a traditional guest book, why not have guests write well wishes and drop cards in an acrylic card box? Make sure to provide paper, envelopes, and pens!

Eccentric acrylic signage personalizes a sweetheart table while adding a contemporary punch to a wedding wild with tropical flowers, bamboo accents, and whimsical touches.

Circular table numbers are not just pretty, they're also subtle—refusing to distract from the moody ambiance of the table it sits on. If you plan on using Lucite escort cards, Lucite table numbers will match those perfectly.

Lucite menus allow perfectly arranged plate ware to shine through. Use the gap between the menu and plates to create a 3D effect with greenery and flowers.
