TRENDING: Top 10 Terrazzo Wedding Décor Ideas
If you love the look of boho and geometric weddings, but you’re looking for something a little different that hasn’t been done a million times, consider a terrazzo wedding palette!
Not sure what terrazzo is? Chances are, you've seen it before—just not at a wedding.
Terrazzo is a composite material that is made out of chips of stone. It is often used as flooring, but you may have also seen it used on walls, as well as countertops. Its flecked appearance gives it the look of confetti, while looking polished and classy at the same time, making it perfect for weddings. Not to mention, it comes in a variety of colors and color combinations!
Using terrazzo at your wedding doesn’t mean you have to lay down new flooring or spend opulent amounts on a wall installation. Here are some tips to give your wedding the look and feel of terrazzo, both with and without the traditional stone material.

Consider creating a terrazzo dance floor. Of course you could construct panels out of the real stuff and have them assembled on-site, but you can also use peel-and-stick vinyl floor tiles, as well as self-adhesive floor stickers to give your dance floor the same look for less.
