The Venue Stylist Glamourous Wedding Theme Guide

Your wedding day is your time to shine and take centre stage, so make sure you have A-list day by having a red-carpet theme.  From your wedding invitations through your wedding chair covers to your wedding flowers here are our top tips for planning a glamorous wedding:

Invitations

To set the tone of the day, make sure your invitations are custom calligraphed to make sure your guests are left in no doubt as to the formality of the occasion or you could even opt for boxed invitations for a real wow factor! The theme of your invitations will also help to steer the rest of your style decisions – such as whether you want to go for old school art deco glamour or a more whitewashed modern day winter style.

Setting

When it comes to a glamorous wedding venue, opulence and boldness are key. Most large hotels will have a ballroom containing ornate elements such as crown moulding which can be enhanced with our uplighters for an instantly glamorous ambience. Other glamorous locations include art galleries, grand estates and historic mansions. Outdoor weddings can be glamorous too – think stunning mountainside locations and gorgeous beachfront.

Outfit

The world of wedding dresses is your oyster if you are looking for a glamorous theme. Nothing is more glamorous than a  full skirted ball gown with a beaded bodice, or go for old Hollywood glamour with a slim-fitting backless sheath.  Hair wise, you could go for long loose waves or a sweeping up do with a sparkling pin. For your groom, you can’t go wrong with a formal tuxedo, or if he is up for something different then why not suggest a velvet dinner jacket which are really on trend at the moment.

Colour Theme

To make a really bold impact, go for a monochromatic scheme – this doesn’t mean black and white but rather shades of one hue. White can look amazingly glamorous, but sultry jewel tones can also be striking. One thing to keep in mind is the current colour of your chosen venue – the last thing you want is your wedding decorations to clash with the wallpaper or carpet!

Flowers

Add extra drama to your day with wedding flower  – such as English roses, Juliet garden roses and spray roses. This keeps the arrangement cohesive, but it still looks interesting. You could also intersperse your more traditional floral arrangements with some nonfloral structure such as manzanita branches or curly willow.

Ceremony Aisle Decoration: Say Your Vows in Style

One of the defining moments of a wedding is when the bride makes her entrance and walks down the aisle. The bride will no doubt be looking her best, dressed in a stunning wedding dress with a sweeping veil and glowing with the excitement of this special day.

There is so much more to aisle dressing than just choosing a runner and some flowers. We offer a fantastic range of decorations, such as scatter petals, lanterns, candelabras, blossom trees and floral arrangements, to make your marriage decoration elegant, memorable and one of a kind. With The Venue Stylist, we will guide you through the whole process, using our expert knowledge to advise you on colours, textures and fabrics that compliment each other and will help you to achieve your desired look.

Aisle Runners

Choosing an aisle runner is an important decision, as it will form the focal point of your wedding ceremony décor. We supply a range of luxurious aisle runners available in numerous colours; use our coloured aisle runners to create showstopping décor for a themed wedding, or use our subtler neutral coloured aisle runners, for a more understated and traditional look.

To match your aisle runner and create some consistency in your wedding venue dressing, why not use chair covers to highlight certain patterns and colours? Wedding chair covers are an easy and highly effective way to vamp up dull-looking chairs. Adding sashes in rich golds or silvers can really give your venue a feeling of luxuriousness and grandeur.

Lanterns

When it comes to wedding decoration, the beauty is in the details. It’s the subtle touches that will transform your venue into your dream wedding setting. With this in mind, why not give your venue some ambience by decorating the aisle with lanterns and candelabras? By doing this, you can create beautiful lighting for your photographer. Mood lighting is also a great way to set the tone of a room and change the look or feel of a space.

Trees

For small touches with big impact, take a look at our stunning bay trees and pillars to dress your wedding aisle. These are very on-trend after Prince William and Kate Middleton lined the aisle of Westminster Abbey with luscious green trees which complimented the gothic architecture and rich red aisle runner. Wow your guests by walking through an avenue of trees and say your vows in style!
