When it comes to setting the scene for an elegant wedding, less is definitely more. Just a few simple touches will do! In this case, the allure is in the restraint of not overdoing it.
Here are three simple ways to add elegance to your wedding:
You can’t go wrong with black and white attire. It’s classic. Black bridesmaid dresses are beyond chic. They’re timeless, flattering and everybody feels good in black. A bonus? Black dresses provide a stunning contrast to your white dress, so you stand out even more! Plus, your wedding photographer can get creative with the graphic color scheme.
Resist the temptation to clutter your ceremony decor with signs and other flair. Think simple and elegant. Go for all white everything to keep things airy and fresh, especially for an outdoor ceremony. Seat guests in white chairs, drape breezy white fabric over the altar and add a few floral accents. White or soft blush blooms look especially lovely.
Once again, keep colors understated and minimal in your reception decor. Monochromatic is always an elegant way to go. Nothing beats the sophistication of all white. Or black. Or grey. Opt for simple place settings and centerpieces, rather than flaunting an over-the-top look. Go for clear glass vases, flickering votive candles and antiqued silver candelabras for instant elegance. And, let’s be real: The crowning glory of every reception is the wedding cake. The sweetest choice? Smooth white frosting topped with lush, white flowers!
With these simple, elegant touches, you’ll look back on your wedding photos 20 years from now and still be happy with your style. It’s hard to top timeless!
