Classic weddings: White Bouquets, Long Veils, Pearls, Diamonds, and Lace
Everyone loves weddings! In this modern era, there are many types of weddings themes whether a garden wedding or a church wedding, the classic wedding theme never gets boring and out of style. When you speak about a classic wedding theme, you think of blacks, whites, ivory and lace for bridal attire, bouquets and jewelry with lots of sparkle and dazzle.
Bridal bouquets for a classic wedding theme, white flowers are a must paired with a little greenery. Flowers like white roses, peonies, Lily of the Valley, tulips, orchids and Queen Anne’s lace are excellent for hand –tied bouquets. A bouquet of white roses, peonies and greenery are beautiful together tied with either a cream, ivory or light pink silk ribbon. It is elegant for a spring garden wedding whereas a bouquet of white and ivory colored roses tied with a silky light pink broad ribbon are absolutely beautiful for either a church or garden wedding. White Catteleya orchids, tulips and calla lilies bouquet, tied with white silk ribbon is an elegant piece for a classic bride.
Veils of course are an important part of the bridal attire. For a church ceremony, cathedral, chapel and floor wedding veils are certainly appropriate. For example the 120” long Cathedral Rattail Edge veil in white or ivory comes with a 4” satin covered plastic comb for easy attachment. It looks elegant as the bride walks down the aisle with it’s train flowing on the ground. If a garden wedding is what you dreamt of, although a long veil with a lace border is beautiful but a knee length veil is more elegant like the 7/8” Ribbon Edge veil which also comes with a satin covered comb for easy attachment. Lace veils are exquisite and look lovely with a plain wedding gown.
As far as jewelry, pearls and diamonds is the way to go. A freshwater cultured pearls woven necklace with 14k white gold, button freshwater cultured pearls woven bracelet in 14k white gold and matching earrings or a three stone drop diamond pendant, diamond tennis bracelet and a teardrop diamond earrings, all with 18k white gold chain, are perfect for a strapless wedding gown. A white gold necklace with a freshwater pearl Heart Drop pendant with sterling silver, a classic Akoya Cultured Pearls bracelet with 18k white gold matches superbly with a strapped gown.
Whatever your choices are, a classic wedding is not only classic but also timeless.
