As you are exploring, obsessively pinning, and turning the pages of every wedding magazine that exists, it’s inevitable that you will see a variety of styles. Developing your own style is very important to us as your wedding planners as we begin the design process. What is important is focusing in on your design tastes and preferences and then collaborating on how to bring those ideas to life through your wedding design.
In this style series, we will highlight a few different wedding styles to show what may work for your big day!
This week we are featuring classic ballroom elegance.
This is for the bride that is looking to be timeless in her wedding design. To us, ballroom weddings are over-the-top in the best ways – crystal chandeliers, classically round floral design, formal dinner settings.
When a client asks for a more classic, ballroom design profile, we envision a traditionally round bouquet tied tightly, a bride in a classic-cut gown, the groom in a black tux, and the bridesmaids in formal gowns.
Normally, in these design profiles, we have more of a traditional monogram in our paper elements. We also like to be sure the colors complement the ballroom we are in, not compete with it. For seating, we like a chivari chair as I think it is best suited for this type of look. We also normally see the use of candelabras in the floral design or a fluted glass vase for the tall floral element.
While classic and elegant are what we do best, don’t be afraid to pull in some current trends in your wedding design. Maybe try pulling in a trendy accent color to give your wedding a fresh look. Using a subfont design on your printed reception items like your cups and favors is a fun way to freshen up the look. Classic and elegant doesn’t have to be stuffy!
