It is common knowledge that all-white themes automatically bring this special charm, pure and calm feeling to any room. And with white bring the most popular choice for wedding dresses, it should come as no surprise that this particular hue is always increasing in popularity, especially when it comes to wedding decorations and backdrops. After all, this is the color that symbolizes serenity, purity and everything that’s good in the world.
As stunning as an all-white wedding decor can be, though, an avalanche of white might end up looking like something out of a child’s Christmas cartoon. It is important to properly work with this color to make sure that nothing gets thrown out of balance. A white wedding may also look quite plain and overly simple if not properly executed, which is why it’s quite important for the couple to liven up the decor.
However, a common mistake that most couples make when trying to vamp up a white wedding is adding too many splashes of color to the overall decor. Indeed, there’s no point in establishing an all-white theme if you’re going to indulge in a colorful palette. That being said, though, it’s not a bad idea to include a few dashes of color to your white setting. For example, gold is a perfect complement to white, which is why you should think about adding some gold touches to the reception. White tablecloths with gold napkins, for instance, will certainly provide a deeply sophisticated look.
Don’t underestimate the importance of fairy-lights as well. These lights do not only reflect off pale surfaces, but, they will also draw attention to your white theme. This will look particularly dramatic if infused in an outdoors wedding, especially if you’re getting married next to the sea. Yellow and white is another fantastic combination for outdoors weddings. As far as the bride goes, she may either go for an entirely white dress or, liven things up a bit by selecting an ivory one. Another option would be to select a dress with a white bodice that flows glamorously into a full ivory skirt.
One of the easiest ways to vamp up a white wedding decor is through the flowers. Whether it’s the bridal bouquets or the small springs of flowers that bridesmaids usually carry, keep in mind that an all-white arrangement does hover on the wrong side of boring. To take things up by another notch, be sure to tuck in just a few tiny springs of green or yellow flowers to the white bouquet.
