What are some casual wedding decor ideas?
Whatever your interpretation, committing to a casual wedding usually means forgoing the ball gown, dramatic ice sculptures, four-course meal, and towering centerpieces. That said, you never want to be in the position of having to reject certain details or concepts that are important to you. Here are some key details that signal a more informal affair to help you get started:
- The look and language of your wedding invitations: Forgo classic ecru and opt for colorful handmade papers with soft, sumptuous surfaces, textured or detailed ribbons, and echoed motifs.
- Choose a location that allows for stretching legs, letting down hair, and leisurely, unpretentious partying.
- The dress: A casual-but-elegant bride may wear whatever she likes. It might be a streamlined sheath with crisp, long lines, a strapless sundress with a straw hat, or a smart, retro pantsuit. The groom can sport an East-Coast ensemble: tan trousers with a navy blazer and a colorful grosgrain belt and bow tie.
- Flowers like gerbera daisies, sunflowers, or gathered wildflowers can be displayed in eclectic containers like jars and pitchers.
- The lighting is as au naturel as possible; subtly illuminating the party in the form of clean, white candles, antique candelabra, or rustic metal railroad lanterns.
