Sophisticated Green Velvet Winter Wedding Decor with Gold

There was a time I was fearful that I had run out of things to see and discover on Pinterest, but oh how wrong I was! I have found several, absolutely one of a kind images the last few days, and have had an overwhelming sense of inspiration and ideas come to mind after discovering them.

The first piece of beauty I found was a regal looking altar, draped in a dark green velvet, adorned with crisp white orchid flowers along the top. To heighten the look even further, there are gold, regal tassels and fringe accenting the drapery, creating a simple but stunning design. There was no turning back once I started down the path of devising the perfect combination of elegance and class that this wedding inspiration board demanded. I am over the moon with the elements I’ve included in this week’s wedding post. Lots of gold accents, plenty of green velvet, and of course more bright white orchids. Together, they create an almost enchanting, storybook-esque winter wedding.

While I think this would be a beautiful Christmas wedding in general, I would particularly love to see this wedding done on a day like New Year’s, or perhaps even Valentine’s Day. There is something so romantic about the textures and bold use of this luxurious dark green velvet that could really play to those holidays.

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!

Extravagant Summer Wedding in Green Florals

This luxurious summer wedding I’ve dreamed up is one that I consider to be the top of the modern wedding vibe, but still keeps elegance and wow factors at the peak of your mind throughout the event.

This wedding not only has a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, with linens dramatically draped over the alter, but it also has 3 other stops it takes the guests to. After the ceremony – the guests head indoors for a cocktail hour, welcomed as they walk through the doors by strands of hanging orchids. After cocktail hour, they move out to a garden in a complete oasis of green. Green florals and silks are cascading and covering every inch of your visual field. No area is left bare. After a scrumptious meal, the music of a local band in the background, and good conversation of tablemates, it’s time for guests to move into the tent for the party to continue into the night! This tent has been transformed into the ultimate custom party lounge, complete with bars, desserts, lounge areas, and of course the hottest music played over a dance floor complete with club lighting.

This is what I had in mind:

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.
