There’s something so appealing about a crisp, yet elegant white wedding to me. Perhaps it reminds us of stories about heaven we heard when we were little; perhaps it appeals to our desire for creative clarity.
This inspiration board was born completely of the first photo of the brunette in the simple white dress with feather trim. This look seemed so strongly stark, in a beautiful way, and didn’t include that sort of “shabby chic” element we see so often with pale shades. The fabric is heavy and looks rich, imparting an unexpected luxuriousness in a sea of immaculate tones.
Make sure you use depth to your advantage here by choosing full blooms, like peonies, hydrangeas, and heritage roses. Lilies are too flat, but any flower with abundant petals will work. Decorate the gold chiavari chairs with one of these fat blooms to offset the otherwise gilded look for the ceremony. Give the cake an element of depth, too, with this abstract magnolia cake–the work is so clean, yet so organic.
Bridesmaids wear a neutral tone–here, a dusty nude pink–that compliments the white decor without blending you in. It’s your day, after all, am I right?
Avoid monochrome letterpress invitations and opt for traditional black letterpress in a vintage design for a sophisticated way to set the scene.0
