36871442Getting married is an important life event for an engaged couple and one of the first tasks involved with planning a wedding is choosing a theme. Of the many wedding themes available from which a couple may choose for their ceremony, an elegant wedding is by far one of the most popular. More than about choosing quality over quantity, an elegant ceremony is about the expression of simplicity, stylishness and gracefulness. Read on to learn more about elegant wedding tips.

Elegant Invitations

Set the tone of sophistication with your wedding invitations by choosing designs that immediately evoke a sense of minimalism and gentle austerity.  Imbibe a sense of artfulness into your wedding invitations by choosing subtle color combinations such as modern black and white or romantic-inspired pastels from the Victorian Era. Add coordinating envelopes and personal touches such as simple silk ribbons, delicate decorative lace or embossed initials.

Sophisticated Ceremony Location

Whether you choose indoors or outdoors for your ceremony, an elegant wedding may be enhanced by location. Transform an ordinary venue into an elegant one with a few simple flourishes such as a beach wedding at sunset when the sky is ablaze with fiery colors or a garden wedding at the height of flowers in bloom. Twinkling icicle light strands may change a plain room reception venue into a sparkling magical wonderland. Elegance may be found in the charm of a rustic country church or in the avant-garde attitude of a metropolitan hotel.

Wedding Gown Elegance

Elegant bridal gowns often feature clean lines and simple designs, a hallmark of most wedding dresses. Walk down the aisle in elegance by wearing a gown highlighting understated details such as simple necklines and minimal decorations. Choose long length gowns in classic colors such as white or ivory. Elegant wedding dress fabrics include tulle, silk, satin or chiffon. Add to your elegance by wearing a bridal veil.

Chic Signature Drinks

Create an original concoction for your guests to enjoy at your wedding reception, an alternative to a beer and wine bar. Get creative with ingredients by infusing your drink with elegant flavors such as julep, passion fruit, honey or ginger. Hire a professional mixologist to create a drink based on your personal preferences.

Refined Centerpieces

Make an impression at your reception with splendid and refined tabletop centerpieces. Ideas for an elegant romantic reception centerpiece include classic silver vases filled with white roses in full bloom or pink orchids submersed in tall clear cylinders of water or hurricane lamps glowing elegantly from the flickering flames of large candles surrounded by a circle of river stones.
