3-7 day weddings

3-7 day weddings

A vintage theme means that the styling for the wedding will be reminiscent of a bygone era. For example, most vintage style weddings make reference to the Victoria era, as well as the ’20s or ’40s. This theme is really expressed through the garments, hair and makeup worn by the bridal party, as well the venue styling, floral and decoration choices.

A vintage wedding may or may not include a sit-down dinner, however, a cocktail wedding is usually more applicable to a vintage theme as cocktail parties were all the rage in the roaring ’20s. Jazz music, vintage photo booths, vintage wedding cars and even a vintage style venue are all popular ways to enhance the vintage theme.

While a vintage wedding can be a formal occasion, it may not include all the traditional formalities or members of the bridal party.

Beach Weddings

Beach Weddings

A beach wedding is typically a relaxed occasion, and often guests aren’t required to wear clothing that is too formal. Most beach weddings will include a ceremony on the beach and a reception to follow at a nearby venue.

The couple may opt to take a relaxed approach to their wedding attire, and some brides will even wear sandals or no shoes at all. A beach wedding may consist of a small or large bridal party, and some couples even choose to have an intimate beach ceremony with just a handful of close friends and family.

A beach wedding may be a cocktail or sit-down occasion, and may include as many or as little formalities as the couple choose.

Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding

A rustic wedding theme or style is a styling theme which is inspired by the simplicity of country life and references the outdoors. A rustic wedding usually incorporates rustic elements such as timber, metal and natural unstructured bouquets and flowers.

Rustic weddings are usually held, and tend to work best, in venues such as barns, sheds, vineyards and outdoors under a marquee or tree, and the reception will usually consist of a sit-down dinner. Some rustic weddings may have the ceremony and reception at the same location, or on the same property.

Some formalities may be present, however, a rustic wedding is typically quite relaxed and laid back, as opposed to being very formal. Couples may choose to have many bridal party members, just a few or even none.

Contemporary Elegance

Contemporary Elegance

A contemporary and elegant wedding is another formal occasion, and while it has the foundations of a classic and traditional wedding, it has a contemporary twist. The contemporary twist can be modern design choices such as a non-traditional wedding dress or non-traditional wedding venue, as well as a modern take on invitations, styling, flowers and decorations.

It is essentially a classic wedding with some elegant, yet trend-focused, styling choices, making the over all mood and theme a little more contemporary than it’s traditional counterpart.

Contemporary and elegant weddings may include all of the formalities that are present at a traditional wedding, such as a sit-down dinner and speeches. A contemporary and elegant wedding usually includes all the key players in the bridal party too, such as the bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and page boys.

Luxury Weddings

Luxury Weddings

Glamorous and luxurious weddings tend to be traditional weddings which are extravagantly decorated. Glamorous and luxurious weddings tend to be black tie occasions, and are often held at a church and reception venue. They are also very similar in nature to contemporary weddings, however, a glamorous wedding may be a more luxurious affair.

A glamorous and luxurious wedding may include styling elements that involve sparkle, metallic colours such as gold, silver, rose gold and copper, and stand out features like lush flower walls, opulent centrepieces and elegant invitations, styling and decor.

Glamorous weddings may have an element of regal or Hollywood glamour, and the bride may wear a gown which features lace or intricate embellishment, with well styled bridal party to match.

Glamorous weddings are sit-down occasions and they generally include all the formalities that a classic and traditional wedding has.
