HUNTED : { Wedding Inspiration – The Classic Couple }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

There is a danger (without killing off my own blog) of spending too much time looking at other people’s weddings when planning your own. You may start to come away with the impression that if you don’t have an elaborate theme in place, with colour co-ordinated gymnasts juggling mason jars whilst simultaneously leaping over vintage furniture, that your day will be judged and found lacking.

This is balderdash. Poppycock. Nonsense.

To put it bluntly – you can do whatever the hell you like. And if what you like is something simple and classic that will cause you minimal stress, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, or chastise you for failing to have a Hollywood-bothering Save-The-Date video.

#WeddingTip : the most important accessory, scheme or theme at any wedding is a couple who wants to marry each other. The End.

If you’re a classic couple, here are the wedding ideas to keep your day elegant.

The key for the classic bride, is to think of elegance and tradition. Your wedding heroes are Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton – understated beauties who still completely stole the show on their wedding day.

When it comes to wedding dresses, whilst you should be guided by what you love and what suits you, an element of lace is synonymous with a classic bridal look.

It will depend enormously on your dress choice, and your own tresses, but for me a classing wedding means hair up. An elegant bun is a perfect choice for a classic bride, in combination with pearl jewellery.

The most classic, formal choice for the Groom would be a morning suit. Generally distinguished from a regular suit by the long jacket, waistcoat and cravat combination, it is the attire of Royals and race-goers.

Transport

To get to the ceremony in classic style, choose a quintessentially British car, such as a vintage Rolls Royce; Bentley or Jaguar. If you’re being driven on from ceremony to reception, make sure they’re supplying you with a glass of bubbles to celebrate – it’ll be the first of many.

Wedding Flowers

For a truly classic look, keep wedding flowers essentially white with a touch of natural green. White Hydrangea are a good option to achieve this look.

Music

I adore, adore, adore the sound of the harp. So if you’re having a classic wedding and have the budget for it, squeeze a harpist into your day.

Food & Drink

And finally, if you’re a classic couple, you’ll probably want to stick to the traditional multi-tiered cake. That doesn’t mean you must have some unattractive doorstopper of a fruit number. Find a supplier who can still make a white iced cake look special, and taste fantastic.
