Barn wedding décor is very interesting as you can get experimental with the decorations. You can make the decoration fancy with the drapery on the walls and ceilings. It can be accented by the help of shiny crystal chandeliers. You can make it more comfortable and casual with the help of a few barnyard staples like the twine, hay bales along with burlap.
Wedding Dress: To suit your barn venue, you need to look for a dress that will combine easy elegance with a touch of the bohemian glamour. Look for a full, A-line or fishtail skirts that have fabrics like lace and satin which also suits the countryside setting. The wedding gown can have sweeping, sweetheart or plunging halter necklines to add some drama to your outfit.
The Beach Wedding: Beach weddings are typically barefoot ceremonies, with the couples experiencing a laid-back vibe when tying the knot at their favourite surf spot. Nowadays, even contemporary beach weddings are popular as they are more sophisticated, with the use of crystal, silver, white linen used to deck up a hotel facing the beach.
There are many couples around the world who envisage taking their special vows on the sand as the beautiful sun sets over the stunning vast ocean. For some people, just being closer to nature hearing the waves and taking in the sea is perfect.
Nobody wants a normal wedding and having a fancy beach wedding is a great option. Exchanging vows close to nature gives you the feeling of tranquillity and bond.
Wedding Dress: Don’t go for the formal ball gown that weigh you down, rather opt for the light, airy fabric that easily flows with the breeze and has breathability. Choose from a nice chiffon or silk gown for your special day. Add features to your wedding gown like a fancy lace and slit as they help to maintain the airflow and comfort. Opt for wedges or flats, because heels don’t work for the beach sand. You can also carry a lightweight stole to complement the wedding dress.
Safari Weddings: This is a very unique and interesting idea that today’s couples are opting for over common wedding ideas. Couples, who are close to nature, should opt for a safari wedding. You can use faux peacock feathers to decorate the venue or you can have pictures clicked with your family and friends in the middle of the plains with zebras and beautiful gazelles grazing in the background.
You can also have an animal print theme for your wedding or have your bridesmaids wear plain gowns and animal print shoes. Use luxurious raw wood tables with organic linens, this will add elegance to the whole wedding. Get inspired by the talented Zulu craftsmen and adorn your venue with wooden masks and African beads.
Wedding Dress: You can go wild with your wedding dress ideas and have animal prints combined with other fabrics and shades. Soft white tones would look great as everything else around you would be bursting with colour. You can also have a wedding gown with a mix of contemporary and traditional style, so that it looks unique and pretty.
