Any woman who sees herself as being at the height of style and sophistication is sure to want her wedding day to be just as stylish as the rest of her life. In fact, it should be even more fashionable because it’s one of the biggest days of her life. But when you have so much to plan, the finer details can get lost when you’re busy organizing the big things. If you want your wedding to go off without a hitch and for everything to look fabulous while it happens, you should pick a theme and run with it. Of course, the big day is all about the commitment, but that doesn’t mean that one of these ultra-stylish theme ideas wouldn’t be the icing on the cake.
If you want real style and sophistication, you only need to look at the past. We have plenty of incredible fashion now, of course, but there’s something captivating about a vintage look. There are lots of different routes you can take if you want to have a vintage wedding, but the glamor of a 1950s Hollywood is irresistible. For the dress, take inspiration from classic movies, as well as the gowns worn by actresses at the Oscars and their own weddings. Go for a black tie affair, with gloves and evening gowns for the ladies.
Pick a Pattern
Sometimes there are so many ideas, you just don’t know what to choose. Or you have the opposite problem, and you’re completely stuck for inspiration. One of the easiest ways to pick a theme is to choose a pattern or motif that you like. It could be stripes or polka dots, a flower motif or a fleur-de-lis. Don’t go overboard with applying your choice to every single thing you come across, or it will turn into a stripy nightmare. Use it as a starting point to access your designs, from the invitations to the cake.
Monograms and Lettering
Anyone who’s a sucker for a beautiful typeface will love using stylish lettering as the basis for their wedding theme. You can use lovely scripts on the save the date cards, invitations, name cards and more. And you can also use your initials to monogram different aspects of the party, from a handkerchief in the groom’s breast pocket to the cake. It’s an excellent way to add small and subtle details to every part of your wedding and put a little bit of you and your partner into the designs. You can even get your monogram nicely crafted on a custom neon wedding sign, just upload a picture of the logo and pick a color to match your décor. These new LED neon lights glow gently and bright, and will look great on your wedding pictures.
Flowers are one of those things that can be sophisticated if you get it right, but horribly tacky if you get it wrong. Too many flowers could tip your theme over the edge into dangerous territory, so be careful with this one. But if you’re a flower lover, you can have success by carefully choosing what to use and where to use it.
You can put together the stylish wedding of your dreams if you pick the right theme. Decide on one in the beginning, and you can keep it in mind as you plan everything for the big day.
