How To Add Luxury To Your Wedding

Dear Bride, Wedding Tips for Brides

You’re recently engaged and diving into the wedding planning process. You’ve dreamed of your wedding day since you were little and know you want a timeless wedding, with classic, beautiful touches, that looks straight out of a magazine, but you’re not really sure how to add luxury to your wedding. It’s okay, we’ve got just the thing!

Four Easy Ways to Add Luxury to Your Wedding Day

A Classic Black Tux

A classic black tux never goes out of style and is incredibly classic. It’ll exude a luxury feel and everyone looks amazing in a well-tailored classic black tuxedo.  Even go for a well-tailored classic black suit with a thin tie if you’re wanting a more modern vibe. The website The Black Tux does an incredible job of modernizing the look to suit any groom’s style with an elegant twist.

Invest in Florals

Florals can get expensive, but they make such an impact! Make sure your bridal bouquet is dreamy, full, and a gorgeous representation of your style for your wedding. Florals will set the tone for your wedding day, so at least splurge on beautiful bouquets for yourself and your bridesmaids. A floral installation—whether at the ceremony or reception—will add a whimsical and romantic feel while adding a luxurious aspect to your day. I personally recommend and often work with Saffron & Grey Couture Floral Design as their vision and execution of florals is impeccable.

A Wedding Location with Character

Adding luxury to your wedding can be as simple as adding a wedding location with a timeless character. This could mean an old Cathedral-style church, a downtown location with beautiful architecture, or a location that has a mix of buildings and nature. Choose a location that has changes of scenery in it, as it is lovely to have variety in your wedding album. Historic buildings are something I personally love, but even choosing a location that has meaning to the two of you holds value and tells your story.

A Beautiful Head table or Sweetheart table.

Invest in florals and rentals to create a head table that exudes elegance, romance, and a luxurious touch. These images will be cherished because the attention to detail will be showcased in your wedding photographs, especially since the head table is typically photographed the most.  it’s easy to create your dream wedding by adding luxury in small places that will have an enormous impact on the look and feel of your wedding day.

Whatever you choose, remember that adding luxury to your wedding doesn’t have to be complicated or overly expensive. It just takes a little thought and time to incorporate some magical elements that step up the elegance while still creating a look that you love.

Fueled by equal parts strong coffee and French 75’s, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that convey distinctive emotion through intentional moments and create elevated images you’ll treasure for a lifetime. I showcase your story and your love in an exceptional, gracious way. I believe in real moments, heartfelt conversations, love stories that grow stronger through the storms and the kind of joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. When I'm not tearing up during the vows, you'll find me whipping up a new recipe in the kitchen, listening to Sinatra, or snuggling with my mini me.
