Deciding on Details
Almost every bride knows that a great wedding begins with fabulous details. However, with so many “tacky” accessories on the market, many weddings look cookie-cutter and stereotypical,instead of classy. However, even if you don’t have a large budget, a stylish wedding is easy to pull together when you look for the right elements.
Overarching theme: When you have a guiding theme, it is easy to select appropriate elements for your wedding. If you are looking for a sophisticated, classy wedding, then opting for the Art Deco motif can make your special truly memorable.
Defined lines: Too many brides make the mistake of thinking “more is better.” In reality, “less is more” when it comes to accessorizing your wedding. Look for centerpieces and elements that have chic, well defined lines to create a sophisticated look.
Pure fabrics: Search for accentuating materials that are made from natural fibers. Blended fabrics, such as polyester, can instantly take away the ambiance of a classy wedding. Think raw silk or even pure cotton for a sophisticated wedding. You can find lots of great materials at half price if you visit local fabric stores and take a look through those large bargain bins.
Color can be a complex decision for a wedding soiree. Black is always a great choice, since this hue is as classic and sophisticated as it gets. Of course, you will have to compliment a black color selection with other colors in order to avoid a somber look.
Some colors that go nicely with black include: pink, ivory, light blue, silver, deep red, emerald green, and even bits of gold. Choose three colors that complement one another, and then use these colors throughout your reception area.
Allow the majority of your wedding reception to include lots of black accents, but don’t forget to mix it up a bit too. For example, while black tablecloths might be a bit too much contrast, while ivory tablecloths accented with black centerpieces would be breathtaking.
Any wedding begins with the proper wedding invitations. The stationery that you choose to send to your guests will set the theme for your entire day. Since you are planning a classy wedding, make sure to choose appropriate stationery.
Why not make your wedding a literal black tie affair? Taking their cue from the pocket of a tuxedo, black-tie invitations that are tucked away inside of a black paper pocket are both charming and well-designed. The black pocket invitations are tied up with a neat bow that allows them to be both cheerful and traditional all at the same time.
From the moment your guests unwrap each invitation bow, they will know that you are planning a truly refined affair. No matter what kinds of details you choose for the wedding itself, the biggest detail of them all is the invitation design that you send.
Your wedding day begins with the wedding invitations that you send out to all of your guests. Take the time to consider each style of invitation carefully. For those weddings that are meant to go down in societal history, a pocket-style black invite is just the right touch of panache.
