The Art Nouveau period was inspired by natural forms, and commonly used stylized florals, plants, and animals in its ornamental designs. Add decorative touches to everyday objects to create a beautiful wedding reminiscent of this "New Art" style.  

Fauvism is a style that was introduced in the early 1900’s by modern artists, and was known for bold lines and pure, intense colors that created the emotion in the artwork. Embrace color in your wedding to reproduce this unique design style! 

The Pop Art style originated in New York by artists who used pop culture as the inspiration for their artwork. Andy Warhol is the most well known. Use bold images of everyday items, photos of popular celebrities, comic strips or product labels in your wedding to recreate this energetic look!

The Rococo art style began in France in the 18th century, and was popular in Central Europe and England. The style is highly ornamental, with fanciful curves and pastel colors. Incorporate these elements into your wedding to create a beautifully elegant wedding!

The artist Vincent Van Gogh used bold colors and dramatic brush strokes to create paintings of florals, landscapes and portraits. The Starry Night painting is a highly stylized depiction of a night sky with the moon and stars above a village in France.
