The inner workings of the universe may always be a mystery. One popular theory posits that the world is actually made up of mathematical equations. At PartySlate, we suspect geometric wedding and event décor fuels the cosmos (or at least the latest trends).
Geometry is making its mark on weddings, corporate events, and milestone celebrations. Triangles, circles, diamonds — you name it — are all finding their way into mathematical-inspired event décor. From ceremonial archways to funky centerpiece additions, it’s time to indulge in the “theory of everything.”
GEOMETRIC WEDDING ARCHES
This igloo-like ceremonial arch found its match with a twin bar set-up decorated in pampas grass and suspended candlelit globes. We especially love how crescent-shaped sofas served as ceremonial seating.

This outdoor wedding ceremony in the Marin Headlands of California kept things simple with an open hexagonal backdrop — allowing the dramatic coastal landscape to steal the spotlight.

Place cards received an upgrade at this jewel-toned wedding. We love the origami diamonds and cubes crafted in shimmering paper.
GEOMETRIC BAR AREAS
Everything about this milestone-birthday party was sleek and modern. From the LED panel bar with mirror laser-cut panels to a twin custom-built wall perimeter, the setting was a kaleidoscope of various textures. Even the floral décor boasted sputnik wiring.
Accents of green and gold give this black and white wedding color palette a modern twist. We also love how a modern diamond motif is found throughout the celebration — from the bar area to the seating chart. Click to see.

The Mine Safety Appliances Company drew all eyes at their 100-year celebration with custom up-lit signage — we love how its construction made a clever nod to mining excavation. The same motif played out with geometric-shelving units used to display colorful hard hats.
