Wedding Articles & Tips – Formal Weddings

Formal weddings are ideal for couples who value elegance.

Formal weddings aren’t necessarily traditional – modern weddings ooze glamour!

Your venue will set the scene. Consider ballrooms with expansive dance floors, museums or 5 star establishments. Fine china with artistically inspired and presented hors d’oeuvres, canapes and lobsters, a 10-tiered wedding cake and exotic cocktails served on silver trays.

Candlelight is key, tall candelabra’s to illuminate the room and create the ultimate ambience. Nothing emanates class like white. Consider white cushions and chair covers, white tablecloths with overlays in rich fabrics and hundreds of white roses, orchids or fragrant gardenias.

The bridal couture is typically a formal beaded, floor-length wedding gown (usually a full-skirted ball gown or A-line silhouette).

An up-do hair style is a must and a long tulle veil that compliments the length of your train. For the glamorous touch, a gem encrusted tiara will make any princess shine.

The groom typically wears a black tuxedo or modern black suit with black or white tie, groomsmen wear black tie.

Big, bold wedding invitations engraved in black or silver ink on heavy card stock or rich marbled papers will certainly make an impression.

Select elaborate typefaces or hire a calligrapher to hand address all your wedding invitations. Whatever option you choose, extravagant invitations will announce your wedding in true glamorous style. Generally, the more formal the wedding is, the later in the day the wedding is held. Look in our Latest Trends section for the latest in wedding invitations.

For the ultimate in formal wedding entertainment, you just can’t go past the big band or string orchestra providing the finest in background music.

When your glamorous night comes to an end, drive away in the sophistication and elegance of a vintage Rolls Royce or Bentley wedding car. For the remainder of the day, consider black stretch limousines.
