Four ways to elevate your wedding!

You’ve spent hours pinning and planning your wedding and you want all the gorgeous photos you see featured in magazines and style me pretty- but the cost of these luxury weddings can get out of hand, right?!?  Weddings are expensive, I totally get it!  But you can have a simple wedding and still have it look luxury just by using these four tips!

 

Go Black Tie

Tuxedos always look dressier than the traditional suit.  Did you know that your rental cost is about the same for either?  Simply by choosing a black tuxedo with a bow tie over a suit of any color, you elevate the look of your wedding day!  We love black tie weddings!  Also, black goes with ANY color!

 

Choose neutral bridesmaid dresses.

I love color just as much as the next girl, but if you stick with neutrals or muted and soft shades on your girls, it will keep the focus on you and allow your florals to pop more!  Long dresses always look more high end than shorter ones as well!

 

Minimize the Greenery-

When it comes to bouquets, skip the eucalyptus, babys breath and hydrangeas.  We know they are cost effective, but a simple (even if smaller) bouquet of flowers will give you a gorgeous look!

 

Ditch the decor-

If you ever walk into hobby lobby’s wedding section, you will be greeted by a million signs from “mr & mrs” to “happily ever after”.  And while these are pretty, they are a dime a dozen.  Skip the extra signs and focus on simple decor that brings your wedding theme to life. Have a custom printed sign made (you can even DIY it) or a custom banner made.   It will give your wedding a one of a kind look! Custom crest shown by Jessica Marie Designs!
