Hot Wedding Trend: Watercolor Details

The art of watercolor dates back to Egyptian times, when it was used for manuscript illumination. Revived by Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) in several fine botanical paintings, it has not since gone out of style. This is why it’s not surprising that brides to be are going wild over the latest water color wedding trend. Whether it be Georgia O’Keeffe-style save-the-dates or a canvas worthy watercolor cake like those made by Style Sweet CA, a watercolor wedding is a wish come true.
