We love all types of wedding styles. Rustic weddings. Modern weddings. Vintage weddings. But my oh my, there is one type of wedding style that will have our hearts forever and ever: Classic. We hope you love this Simply Sophisticated mood board, all inspired by one perfectly simple wedding invitation.
Start with the Invitation
Let’s begin with the wedding invitation. Since this very important piece of stationery is the first glimpse your guests have of your wedding, you’ll want to make sure you set the tone right. If you’ve chosen to style your wedding in a classic and elegant theme, keep your wedding invitation beautifully simple. We have a lovely selection of elegant wedding invitations, and for this sophisticated look we chose a design with classic styling and details you can actually feel. This Absolutely Classic Wedding Invitation, shown here in ecru, features thermography printing; a traditional method that results in glossy, sparkling raised lettering. The textured paper stock feels extra special and the creamy ecru color is the perfect shade of ivory.
Pick Your Palette
The best part about a classic wedding theme is that selecting your wedding color palette is completely stress-free. Keep things neutral with shades of black, white and cream. You read that right – mix all those shades of white together. We promise it’ll look ultra luxurious and you don’t have to worry about sticking to all stark white or just the right shade of cream.
Focus on Elegant Lines
Choosing to create a wedding day look full of simplicity and sophistication might seem like a breeze, but we caution you to make thoughtful choices about everything from your venue to dresses to flowers. All your elements should complement each other and the best way to achieve this is to use flowing, elegant lines. Think swooping calligraphy-inspired fonts on your invitation and tables draped in floor-length linens. Each detail of your day, right down to your hairstyle, should include a soft curve. When you bring it all together, you’ll have a sophisticated look to love!
