Extraordinarily Elegant Indoor White Wedding Ideas
If your white wedding is held indoors, be creative so it won’t look boring. Since white will be the dominant color, or maybe the only color, it will be necessary to make the decoration very attractive while keeping in mind that the bride has to stand out. Add a signature color to give some dimension or to liven it up or have the bride wear a more colorful creation.
Mix white with either greenery or copper accents for an interesting and modern contrasting effect, or with subtle hues such as pastel pink or beige for a natural color lift.
Dramatic lighting pieces like a large crystal chandelier hanging in the center of the room will remove the risk of a dull white wedding decor. Do not hesitate to create large bouquets of flowers in the room. The bigger, the better here. If you plan to add large floral arrangements as table centerpieces, opt for very tall and clear vases to avoid blocking your guests’s faces.
Imagine a white wedding with tables covered with soft blush linens and lush arrangements of ivory florals dripping with crystals. Gold or copper accents can add a touch of glamour to the space by way of guest chairs, candelabras, glassware, and vases.
Outdoor White Wedding Decor: Fresh & Modern Ideas
For an outdoor wedding, other colors will be added to the white without you even noticing. Can’t get rid of the plants, greenery or even the sand and the ocean in the background. This is actually to your advantage. Greenery brings a nice contrast to the decor in white as does wood inside of a barn or the blue of the ocean at a white beach wedding.
There’s no need for massive chandeliers or giant flower arrangements at an outdoor white wedding. The details can be simple and be reduced to lavish bride and groom reception chairs or white flowers dangling in pretty mason jars!
Luxury White Wedding Cakes and Dessert Tables
Romantic and floral white wedding cakes are all the rage right now. Add texture and dimension to your cake with delicate rosettes, sugar flowers and dragees. Another trendy idea is a white chocolate drip cake surrounded with fruits covered in confectionary sugar or blush macarons.
Think all-white for the dessert table. There’s plenty of sweets that bear this simple and beautiful color. Otherwise, let some food dyes or sugar be your ally. Get inspired by these incredible white wedding ideas to create your very own!
