Top Tips on How to Successfully Pull Off a Totally White Wedding!

White is definitely the color of the moment. It goes well with everything and looks beautiful in every setting! When many people think of weddings, it’s safe to say that a vast majority think of the principal color being white. It symbolises purity, it symbolises peace and harmony, and it is the base color to which any combination of colors can be added for extra emphasis. Usually people are tempted to add other colors to white, for fear of it looking insipid if left alone. However, a totally white wedding is the epitome of chic and elegance.

Bridesmaids!

Although white is the archetypal “bride’s color”, traditionally bridesmaids used to wear white to confuse the evil spirits that would try to target the bride and sabotage her big day. White is a great way to give a nod to tradition and its wedding superstitions. Plus, we all remember Pippa Middleton at the royal wedding, don’t we?

Perfect Wedding Invitations!

Wedding invitations should reflect not only the style of the wedding but also the personality of the bride and groom – and if the color they’ve chosen for the big day is predominantly white – of course they should opt for white invitations! And as for the fonts and colors, for more relaxed weddings, the fonts can be lighter and the colors, to pair up nicely with the white, cheerful and light. On the other hand, for more formal weddings the option should be for a more sophisticated typeface and white should be complemented by, for example, black, gold or silver. Also, a well-rounded monogram and wax seal are two other elements that perfectly match this type of wedding invitation!

And because not many can resist sweets, they too must be included in white, of course!
