25 Super Chic Ideas For a City Wedding

no thumb

If you’re a downtown girl, we’ve got some ideas that will make you swoon. A big city is rife with endless location options to host your wedding, but how can you elevate asphalt and metal? That’s where we come in.

Depending on your taste, a city wedding can take shape in multiple ways. There’s the classic grand ballroom, with an air of elegance and sophistication. There’s the modern rooftop wedding, filled with endless views. And, of course, a loft or gallery wedding for some contemporary, urban industrial vibes. And don’t forget restaurant receptions, which have a charm all their own.

But no matter what you choose for a venue, there are always a few common elements that weave in a sense of city style. Silver tones give off a sleek vibe reminiscent of a city’s steel architecture, while gilded accents create an aura of uptown city glamour. And jet black always promises an urban feel.

Since cities often have a modern heart, you also can’t go wrong with any contemporary accents, such as acrylic chairs or geometric candle holders. We also love a good art backdrop like an abstract canvas to boldly dress up a ceremony, sweetheart table, or lounge area. Set a contemporary tone in all your paper goods with a simple font and minimalist aesthetic.

But it’s not all in the decor—don’t forget your bridal party! Black or metallic dresses are a sure way to give them a city girl look. If you’re having a winter wedding, pair them with some faux fur stoles or leather jackets to take it to the next level. As for the soon-to-be newlyweds, we love fit and flare dresses or classic black-and-white tuxes for a city wedding.

These slick, chic ideas will be sure to set your city girl heart on fire.

31 Neutral Wedding Color Palette Ideas

2016_bridescom-Editorial_Images-08-neutral-wedding-color-palette-ideas-Large-neutral-wedding-color-palette-ideas-matthew-ree-photography.jpg

Although splashes of color are eye-catching and vibrant, nothing says dreamy like a soft, muted wedding color palette of neutrals. Peaceful and classic, shades of beige, ivory, white, and the like repeatedly stand the test of time. And the best part about this natural and unfussy look? It can fit the mold of any wedding style, especially when you take advantage of the different textures you can play with. Garden soirée? Think garden roses and soft greenery. Elegant and sophisticated affair? Try metallics and gilded accents. Beach nuptials? Gauzy, carefree linens and rattan accents are perfect.

Quite contrary to popular assumption, a neutral wedding color scheme doesn’t mean you’re confined to a select set of hues and color combinations. If tans, creams, and hints of gray are too basic of a palette for you, subtly incorporate subdued pastels such as an airy blush and light peach or go the opposite direction and throw in gleaming champagne or gold for a more glamorous feel and a sparkling finishing touch.

And, bear in mind — your entire wedding doesn’t have to be completely neutral. Sometimes, weaving in just neutral elements into certain parts of your wedding, such as your ceremony chairs or tablescape, can round out or complement a broader theme. And don’t forget the power of accents — organic decor such as raw wood or greenery (think a sprig of ferns placed in a napkin setting or a garland of ivy adorning a linen chuppah) can enhance the natural look a neutral color palette creates.

When it comes to narrowing down what your palette will look like, just remember that color choice can conjure up different moods. Even with neutrals, the darker end of the spectrum is more refined and stylish, while the lighter end is more playful and romantic. Either way, the resulting look is stunning. We can’t get enough of these wedding themes decked out in everything from creamy fawn tones to snowy shades of white, and you won’t either.

25 Backyard Wedding Ideas

elyseandlyndon20170817_14.JPG

What’s not to love about a backyard wedding? They’re intimate, convenient, and perhaps best of all, often a budget-friendly (if not free) venue. But before you write off a backyard wedding as an overly casual affair that welcomes a rustic vibe only, know that there are endless ways to transform it into anything you want it to be.

For an elegant, formal look, a tented reception can go a long way. Pull back gauzy curtains with vines of florals or greenery for a statement entrance, suspend chandeliers from above for a bit of ambiance, and bring reception tables to life with gilded candelabras and chic linens. Bringing the indoors out in the form of a luxe lounge area will also create a more elegant vibe.

But, of course, if you do want a rustic look, you can give it an elevated take by ditching the burlap in favor for a timeless trend — gorgeous greenery. Think a ceremony arch rich in cascading greens, runners of eucalyptus on polished wooden tables, or overhead centerpieces of wreaths. If you want to include lawn games during cocktail hour, lend them an air of sophistication with your own touch — stamp your initials on croquet balls or paint an oversized Jenga set to match your wedding colors.

No matter how you style your backyard wedding, nature is always a good source of inspiration — you are outdoors, after all! Pull leaves from a tree right in the backyard — with a bit of calligraphy, they transform into escort cards for an easy DIY. Potted trees or topiary can make for an unexpected addition inside our outside of a reception tent, or as aisle markers, while tying in with the backyard.

From a wild organic feel to a classy tented receptions, these ideas prove that a backyard wedding doesn’t have to be laidback.

25 Old-Fashioned Country Wedding Ideas

LAUREN-FRANCES%20211.JPG

City weddings may have a that sleek vibe and be oh-so modern and cool, but the charm of a countryside wedding can’t be denied. There’s something magical about the idyllic setting of rolling hills and rustic barns. We’re not talking cowboy boots and pickup trucks, here—we’re dreaming of rolling green hills rich in roses and old stone buildings. Of course, a glorious barn venue would do too.

But a country wedding isn’t just about geography—its charm can easily be replicated no matter where your wedding is. The countryside is all about nature, so use that to define your decor. Incorporate wildflowers everywhere, pop a sunflower in a boutonniere, craft centerpieces out of lavender and thistle, include illustrations of them in your invitation suite, or trim your cake tiers with daisies and baby’s breath.

And if you are lucky enough to have your wedding in the actual countryside, keep your decorations minimal for outdoor receptions or ceremonies—the surrounding scenery is all that’s needed for a stunning backdrop. Let reception tables glow underneath some bistro lights and prop up an altar arch wild in brambles and greenery.

The countryside often has a rustic meets vintage feel that you can easily mirror in your wedding style. Fashion a weathered window into a seating chart display atop an antique dresser, repurpose old bottles as table numbers, or place jars of grandma’s homemade jam atop place settings. We also love a good bicycle prop, or imprints of one on your paper goods—because what better way to travel around the countryside than on a vintage cruiser?

And don’t forget your bridal style! Flower crowns and Wellies are the only way to accessorize your country look.

Here are 25 good, old-fashioned country wedding ideas to jumpstart your inspiration!
