Glamorous Gothic Halloween Wedding in Black and Red

Get ready, we are doing a complete 180-degree this week!

Last week I shared a rustic, goth inspired wedding, perfect for a county area with lots of natural landscape to harness, with candles everywhere. This week I present to you a completely different wedding look, created for the glamorous gothic couple that love all things luxurious. Glossy black finishes with the deepest red roses you have ever seen will line every surface your eyes may lay. Black crystals with delicate black lace accentuate everything from the chairs, to the chandeliers in black above. This has the makings of an unforgettable Halloween wedding. All that’s missing is the perfect chamber music faintly heard in the background. Here’s what I had in mind:

Asian Infused Wedding in Red

It’s not too often I find myself designing concept boards based specifically around a cultural theme, but this week I was overwhelmingly inspired by the tablescape you’ll see below. The red and gold paper lanterns with an array of fresh flowers on the table caught my eye. After more digging into similar looks, I found myself disappointed in the number of higher end weddings that incorporated these beautiful red paper lanterns. With that in mind I challenged myself to create this Asian influenced wedding in red, featuring beautiful paper lanterns that looked luxurious and opulent, and less crafty.

Here’s what I created for this week’s Asian inspired wedding in red:

Crystals and Pearls: Seaside – Lux Wedding Inspiration

Can beach wedding be luxurious?

Oh yes, yes they can.

This week’s wedding idea board is not your ordinary seaside wedding. Oh no. This is glam to the max! Dripping pearls, flowy white silk, and dazzling crystals are the critical components necessary for this seaside wedding inspiration.

I’m thinking a late afternoon wedding ceremony would be perfect for catching all of the available sunshine for optimal sparkles, plus making for some fantastic photos. You can never go wrong with wedding photos on the beach!

Is red too dramatic to be your wedding color? Or do you enjoy the bold, rich hue?

 

Luxurious Dark Purple + Gold Wedding {Inspiration}

I’m mixing things up a little today and will be introducing a color palette section in today’s inspiration board. Having set colors goes a long way in insuring cohesion and clarity in wedding or party planning, and makes the design process a lot smoother. It only made sense to add one to color inspired inspiration and idea boards.

To kick off this new plan, I really wanted to share a palette that I am fond of: dark purple and gold. It is such a regal combination, and easily brings luxurious, rich qualities to any event it is incorporated into.

Mirrors and Chandeliers {Glamorous Evening Wedding Inspiration}

Mirrors and Chandeliers {Glamorous Evening Wedding Inspiration}

This week’s event inspiration is all about the glam! Mirrors and chandeliers, silver and black create this amazing event design. What I love most about this idea is that while it has a very lux feel to it, it COULD be done on a smaller scale.

Think about it, not all of the mirrors and chandeliers used are exactly the same. With a little planning, and a lot of time at flea markets and thrift shops, this event could be achieved by any DIYer out there patient enough to keep on hunting.

Key elements to this event:

  • Black and silver accents -these compliment the mirrors and chandeliers without taking the focus off of them
  • Lighting – this is a no brainer. You are going to need quite the team to hang all of these chandeliers and get them working. And mirrors are just no good without some light to reflect.
  • Evening – the later in the day, the better. To really make the glam feel of this event come to life, you are going to want the chandeliers to be the light of the night, and that just won’t happen in the afternoon lighting.
