How Geometric Wedding & Event Décor is Making Math Fun (Yes, Really)

geometric wedding ceremonial arch and lounge seating against ocean backdrop

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.”
