The couple that wants a classic wedding has a very clear idea of what their wedding should look like. The trick is actually achieving the look. Lots of people have a vision but not a lot of people know how to make it a reality. The Absolutely Classic Style Story will help you get the planning started.

Visual Impact
Focus on creating a few visually stunning elements that are big, bold and really grab attention. These are the things that will shape the overall look of your wedding venue and the atmosphere of your celebration. We’re talking things like white hydrangeas lining the reception table as shown here. The large, all-white wedding cake with ornately handmade floral accents and striking black ribbon. These are the things guests will see first as they enter the venue, and they’re also the design elements they’ll always remember.

Attention to Detail
The little details are the fun surprises your guests will love! They add to the overall experience and will surely make your guests feel right at home. The pre-poured champagne glasses with shimmering place cards shown here help direct guests to their seats and look amazing. Finding elegant wedding invitations is one detail you want to get right! It sets the tone for your classic wedding celebration and lets everyone know what to expect. We chose the Layered Elegance Wedding Invitation on gorgeous shimmer paper with a black backer for stunning contrast.

The Attire
This is the bride’s chance to wear the most beautiful gown she has ever worn, and the groom should be just as handsomely dressed. Make sure the bridal party is nothing less than elegant and debonair. Attire is extremely important when trying to achieve a truly classic look. Of course, we always recommend black and white. It’s a simple choice, but will ALWAYS look amazing.
