WHAT IS A WHITE WEDDING TODAY?

So we all have an image when we think of a ‘white wedding’ right; traditional big fluffy white dress, men in stiff suits and matching pink cravats and maybe a fancy rolls royce to take the wedding party to church. Bleugh.

I had what I’d call a ‘white wedding’ and there was none of that. I am a bit of a traditionalist at heart so for me I knew I’d always marry in white though.

Here’s what I think a white wedding should represent in 2015: A simplicity, a purity and a new beginning. No fuss, just easy bridal style and timelessly cool, chic decor.

I’m totally into White as a colour and how it can have so many layers and textures. White on white is a big theme for weddings this year and I can’t get enough. Uncomplicated, clean and modern is the only way white weddings should be heading.

‘Simplicity is the key, white and greens in the flowers, timelessly cool by bringing in up to date styling, for example wooden table boxes or new glass vessels.’ Michelle at Swaffham and Fakenham Florists.

‘A white wedding is an abundance of fresh cool tonal whites in a natural setting, a crisp white iced cake with a frothy tide of eau de nil florals, organic whisps of floaty fabrics in rinsed chalky colours. Timelessly cool whether using lace, crochet or georgette, white being associated with purity, simplicity and innocence.’ Emma at Buns of Fun.

Really, you get to be so much more creative with keeping to a simple palette; bringing in more textures and light from the ceremony right though to the table tops. As always folks, less is so much more and here in white, super duper stylish and looks so damn fine in photographs for years to come.

What does a white wedding mean to you? We’ve a whole heap of white on white ideas on our ‘White Wedding‘ Pin board.
