The love of your life has popped the question and you’ve ecstatically accepted. So as you prepare to walk down the aisle, there are many decisions to be made. Venue, music, the dress. All are important details on your journey to say, “I do,” and by selecting your bridal style first, the planning process might just be a little smoother.
But if you’re unsure which direction you want to go, don’t fret. We’ve compiled a list of wedding themes to guide you in checking off one of the major aspects on your planning checklist that will set the tone for your big day.
Tying romantic and natural elements together effortlessly is what the southern and rustic chic bridal style embodies. Natural wood, dreamy lace, intimate string lights, soft silhouettes and simple mason jars are the perfect addition to any rustic wedding.
Representing an offbeat and less-is-more notion, the modern bridal style makes a simple yet striking statement with a minimal aesthetic of clean lines and geometric shapes. Select a bold color scheme, structural backdrop or break away from the white dress.
This al fresco wedding style will be a vibrant occasion where the bride floats down the aisle in a gown of chiffon layers and a floral crown adorning her artfully tousled hair. Don’t be afraid of streamers, floral arrangements or even mismatched seating and bridesmaid dresses.
Take the wedding date to heart with a holiday-inspired style. Whether tying the knot in Fall, Winter, Summer or Spring, there are plenty of seasonal motifs to utilize. From Christmas tree decor and warm winter cocktails, to a pastel color palette or tropical, summery ambience, let the season persuade the style.
Family and friends cloaked in black tie attire will appreciate the classic white theme with crystal chandeliers, ballroom venue and three-tiered buttercream cake. A fit and flare satin gown, champagne flutes and Prince Charming complete the traditional wedding vision.
The storybook-inspired bridal approach is all about creating a fairytale moment. Light fabric, feminine details, dreamy silhouettes and watercolor florals all bring the dream princess style to life.
