For the hopeless romantic, we know your wedding decor probably includes a multitude of ruffles, lace and florals. But there is a fine line between a vision in lace and a grown woman enveloped in Church-on-Easter frills. A classic, romantic wedding thrives on a Monet-like approach: from far away, guests see overall simplicity in the well-placed lights and flowing table linens. But upon further inspection, the details in the floral-inspired cake blow them away.
If your style is more delicate and whimsical than bold and boisterous, or if you thrive on shades of beige, the neutral color palette lends itself to a wedding packed with blush bridesmaid dresses and pale coral peonies. And the aesthetically pleasing atmosphere sets a calming tone — there will be no Usher during this bridal march. But it doesn’t have to mean formal, stuffy or expensive. In fact, the more low-key, the better!
If you’re looking to amp up the love factor at your soiree without looking like a Middle School V-day dance, here is a whole host of ideas — and some that you can shop right now.
