wedding style basics

Whether you're a style maven or style-challenged, our Wedding Style section will help you narrow down your wedding look and find genius decor ideas to put it all together. Not sure where to begin? Envision a few wedding themes that suit your personal style. Whether it's a vintage look that reminds you of a bygone era or a homespun look that's as comforting as your living room, there are so many options. Also think colors, patterns, and symbols that are meaningful to you: A pretty patterned pillow can inform an entire wedding theme. Your wedding style can also be inspired by your city, the season, and your favorite hobbies. We've even seen weddings themed after songs, children's books, and poems. This is also the time to determine the formality of your wedding. Once you've nailed down your wedding style and formality, it's time to start thinking of creative ways to tie in your theme. Great places to tie in wedding themes include your stationery, lighting design, centerpiece vases, and tablecloths. For example, for formal wedding themes like black-and-white Art Deco, get mirrored vases with simple white flowers, architectural-inspired invitations, and a dramatic gobo light of the famous Chrysler building. Tip for the taking: Don't be afraid to think outside the typical season-inspired fall wedding or three-color combo theme to pull off a wedding style as unique as you.
