Ideas and styles for an elegant wedding

Depending on what style you opt for the wedding and for what theme you go, you can choose the most appropriate wedding decorations. The wedding preparations, decorations, the bride’s dress and the groom’s suit should follow the chosen lines and fit perfectly to the chosen theme. For example, if you choose a sophisticated wedding theme, you should forget all about beach wedding hairstyles or rustic wedding decorations. Here are some ideas and styles for an elegant wedding that can be helpful.


If you have an elegant, discreet, graceful and feminine nature, and the couple always stood out by constancy, love, style and romance, you can opt for the sweet classic-elegant style for the wedding. Choosing the wedding location is very important in order to have an elegant wedding.  For a wedding in the classic style, the ideal choice is a grand ballroom type of location. You can choose the theme according to the season, and decorate the wedding hall by keeping the colors of that season and using natural seasonal decorations.

If you love the romantic, yet sophisticated style, the wedding decor should include warm and sweet colors. You can choose light pink tones, lilac, white, yellow and why not, red or orange. The decor elements must maintain the romantic and elegant aura: scented candles in different colors, roses, silk flowers, bowls or boxes with discrete embroidery or translucent fabrics, chocolate candies.

For a classic wedding style you can opt for an elegant wedding cake in shades of white, cream, gold or black and white contrasts and decorated with flowers, or for a romantic wedding theme you can opt of a cake with red and gold contrasts.

A ‘princess’ wedding dress is the dream of any romantic and feminine bride. You can opt for a white dress accessorized with fine ribbons in pastel colors and decorated with rhinestones. Also, a white or ivory dress with classic and elegant lace applications and a long veil fits perfectly to a classic wedding style, while a white satin wedding dress is perfect for an elegant wedding. As we mentioned above, bohemian or beach wedding hairstyles are not suited for an elegant wedding. A classic wedding theme, requires a classic bridal look which is why the most recommended hairstyles for an elegant wedding are sophisticated updos or romantic half up half down wedding hairstyles.

The groom’s suit must also integrate into the wedding style and theme. If the wedding gown is white, the groom can wear a suit or a tuxedo in black or gray, or if you want to stand out, the pearl-grey-white shades will be truly unique. If the wedding dress is ivory, the groom should be limited to the eternal black suit, matching only the shirt or a tie or a bow tie.

For an elegant wedding, a round bouquet with roses, callas or spring flowers is the ideal choice. But if you want something more sophisticated, you can give up the traditional bouquet with natural flowers for a bouquet of flowers made of various fabrics, decorated with pearls, crystals, shells or feathers. In this way you will bring a vintage touch to the wedding theme.
