A cottagecore-themed wedding is quite trendy today. While this type of wedding is meant to be simple, there are plenty of design opportunities. You will want to create an environment that evokes nostalgia and idealized country life. Venue locations can range from a backyard to a barn, or an elopement on a mountainside. Perhaps the use of a tent strung with pretty lights and green garlands will contribute to the feelings of a slower-paced life. Color suggestions range from oatmeal to clay and olive. Consider a flowy peasant style dress, adorned with ruffles and lace. Make sure to use romantic fabric prints as floral ties and table runners. Consider providing simple provisions in the form of a charcuterie board.
A picturesque beach wedding is about as whimsical as it gets! The warm grainy sand, endless sky, and waves provide ample background for your special ceremony. Enhancing the setting with warm, beach-inspired colors. You may want to have a wireless microphone available to ensure that your guests can hear those vows over the sound of the waves and wind. Choose serene yet hardy flowers to withstand the elements. Keep you and your partners’ attire comfortable and light. It’s a good idea to provide water for your guests and equally important is to consider the time of day, morning or late afternoon/evening being the best.
A castle wedding is a dream for many couples. The castle itself provides a royal, Cinderella-like atmosphere. One doesn’t have to leave the U.S. to find a beautiful one either since many exist from coast to coast. Each castle has its own unique history and lush grounds.
