But you don’t have to have a millionaire’s budget to recite your vows in luxurious style. Keep reading to learn three simple ways to add some luxury to your wedding day.
1. Pick Your Patterns
Most couples, and especially brides, spend a lot of time choosing the perfect colors to theme their nuptials. Whether you skew toward traditional staples like black and white, soft tones like blush and baby blue, or trendy hues like bold pops of greenery and coral, your options are endless. And your decision will likely guide your choice of bridesmaid dresses, table settings, invitations, and more.
Your color choices will certainly help your wedding day feel more polished. But, if you want to add an extra touch of luxury, look for ways to add some carefully chosen patterns as well. There are tons of ways to add patterns and textures to your big day. Choose patterned wedding invitations, and then mirror that pattern in the rest of your wedding stationery.
Additionally, pick out bridesmaids’ dresses and groomsmen’s’ ties in richly textured fabrics. Even choosing glassware or plates with a bit of texture is a small change that can have a big effect on the look of your table settings.
2. Arrive in Style
Every element of your wedding ceremony and reception will likely be planned out, down to the last detail. But when you’re focused on these two important halves of your wedding day, it’s easy to overlook an equally important logistic: how you’ll get from your ceremony venue to your reception.
If you’re saying your “I do’s” in the same venue that you’ll enjoy your first dance, this isn’t something to worry about. If not, however, you’ll want to have a plan in place to avoid a last-minute scramble.
While you could drive yourself and have your bridal party drive separately from one spot to the next, you’ll enjoy yourself far more if you can relax and savor this special moment instead. Whether you prefer to travel alone with your new spouse or in a limo with your entire bridal party, a rented limo will make your entrance look and feel more special.
3. Show Your Appreciation
The small details that make your wedding luxurious don’t end when you walk through the tunnel of sparklers or dried flowers waiting outside your reception venue. If you want to leave a lasting impression, and thank your loved ones for taking part, don’t forget the thank you cards. And not just any notes will do.
Those patterns, colors and stylish details that made your day so beautiful should be reflected in your wedding thank you cards as well. You can even use a photo from big your day, allowing your thank you cards to act as a lasting memento for your guests.
Adding Luxurious Details to Your Wedding
Deciding which luxurious details best fit your wedding depends on your unique taste and style. But adding pops of patterns, putting special attention in planning how you arrive at your reception, and making sure you show your appreciation to your guests are small details that will have a big impact on your special day.
