Glamour and luxury are at the top of the trend list these days when it comes to weddings. Couples are using color and décor to create striking tablescapes, backdrops and other details that wow their guests. Believe it or not, having these intricate touches throughout your wedding is easier than you think. Check out some ideas of how you can work luxury into your own special day.
Of course, the first thing your guests are going to see is the entrance into your wedding, so make it memorable! Whites and metallics are often seen as the accents of luxury, so dazzle guests with a beautiful arch covered in white flowers and greenery to create a perfect romantic spot to exchange your vows. Better yet, take the plunge and overindulge in white and gold candles that will line your aisle to create romantic lighting and a sense of opulence to the ceremony.
Bringing in professional lighting is one of the easiest and most effective ways to add a touch of glam to your wedding. String up chandeliers to hang over the guest tables during dinner, or opt for one big statement chandelier over the dance floor – the choice is yours. Your guests won’t be able to stop talking about them – I guarantee it! Use projection mapping to create unique patterned dance floors with light, or have your monogram displayed on the wall using light. The possibilities when playing with light are endless.
Instead of having guests see everything at once, why not break it up into different “scenes”? Put up beautiful drapery as partitions so each event of the night creates a big reveal for your guests. If separate areas aren’t an option, section off the space creatively with candles or flowers to highlight different areas of the room. Each area can be as elaborate or simple as you like!
It’s not always about the décor! Having top of the line entertainment is a great way to add that sense of luxury to your wedding. From a swing band donned in tuxedos that transports everyone back to the 1950’s to belly dancers that make everyone feel like they are on the streets of Marrakech, guests will love the unexpected entertainment. Just remember to be sure it stays in line with the theme and tone of your wedding.
If you’re looking to add that ‘wow’ factor to your wedding, having luxury touches is a great way to get to that next level!
