As a bride-to-be, you must have dreamt of your wedding day for a very long time, hoping your day is full of romance. We have put together this list of ten exquisite ways to have the most romantic wedding ever. From the color palette to the menu, these ideas will undoubtedly set the mood for your big day! So, without further ado let’s jump into it.
1. The setting
If you wish to have a romantic wedding, any typical wedding venue simply won’t do. You need something straight out of storybooks – think dreamy and exotic settings like a botanical garden or a Gatsby-style mansion. You can also go for one of the numerous ruined fortresses which have been tastefully transformed into either private residences or luxury hotels. And then there is the beach, which is and will continue to be the most exciting, most romantic setting for weddings.
2. Wedding Wear
What could be more romantic than wedding dresses that feature lace? From the very delicate Chantilly lace to a bolder style of Alencon, any style of lace wedding dresses can add a touch of drama and give you an angelic look with ease. Just like lace, ruffles and tulle or delicate materials that are layered and flowing lend themselves to the realm of the most romantic wedding dresses ever.
3. Color Combos
To create a romantic atmosphere, you can go for delicate tones such as smooth blushes, off-white or gold. Or you can pick a black and white theme with color pops, like deep blue or mint green. A kaleidoscopic spectrum of blues and yellows is lively yet still very romantic.
4. Best Bloom
Flowers are a must have at any wedding, even more so if your theme is romance. Some of the most beautiful and romantic flowers may include – delicate anemones, lush ranunculus and classic garden roses (of course!)
5. The Decor
When it comes to the décor, you can add small romantic details throughout your wedding ceremony to keep the suave, romantic tone alive. There are dozens of ways to make your wedding romantic without calling on old cliché wedding decorations. You can add a bit of sparkle to your big day with twinkle lights. Using scented jar on the tables is also an excellent idea as it not only adds to your wedding aesthetic, but the inviting smell of the candles will also magnify the romantic ambiance in the reception hall.
6. The Music
For your wedding music, you can hire a harpist or flutist, or have a band play the classics such as “I want to spend my lifetime loving you,” “Have you ever really loved a woman?” “I don’t want to miss a thing” or “Right here waiting for you.” Regardless of who is going to play the music at your wedding party, make sure the music is right and adds to the romantic character and spirit of your big day.
7. The Menu
Choose a sumptuous feast with guests dining by candlelight on multiple courses that waiters serve on silver trays and have the “WOW!” factor ensured. Make sure you don’t desert the dessert, though.
8. The Aisle
When you walk down the aisle in your dream wedding dress, all eyes are going to be in your direction! So, be sure to have an elegant, romantic aisle to walk down on – all of your guests will certainly appreciate it. You can easily do this by adding some beautiful floral arrangements and ribbons.
9. The arch
Another romantic detail to add to your wedding ceremony is having a beautiful arch at the front. Not only is it a romantic way to say your vows but it also makes for a splendid feature for all of your guests!
10. The photos
If you wish to create romantic memories too, all of the special details of your big day should be captured. Your wedding photographs should stir up the love, passion, intimacy, and charm of your wedding as well as your magical wedding setting and décor. From the ‘first look’ to the dance, no detail should go uncaptured.
These were our carefully curated list of ten ways to have the most romantic wedding. We sure do hope these ideas inspired you.
