She’s the star of the day and though the fashion world has styled her in numerous ways, the favourite look remains a long white dress with a stole or veil. Ruffles and frills, crystals, pearls, touches of colour, princess-like skirts...there is only one rule: freedom of style. The dress is a success if the woman wearing it feels like a true queen, admired and happy.
Always impeccable in a dark suit worn with confidence. For more formal weddings, a morning suit is a must. The groom's attire should be refined with carefully considered details and nothing left to chance. A flower in the buttonhole is an elegant tradition, with roses and orchids being the clear favourites.
The reception invitation is traditionally printed on a card and included in the same envelope as the wedding announcement, so the same style should be used. For both the announcement and the reception invitation, the name of the guest should be written by hand. The announcement should be sent two months before the day of the wedding.
Fairytale castles, villas with extensive grounds, beautiful gardens or idyllic beaches...romantic, special places, but quirky venues too. Places that seem to have been made for happy couples; you just need to choose the right one.
Flowers are an essential accessory for the bride, adding to her elegance. The bride's bouquet started out as a bunch of fragrant herbs and perfumed flowers to keep evil spirits at bay. Making a bridal bouquet is not easy; it requires professional skills and a creativity.
THE WEDDING RINGS
No longer the classic band (thin and slightly rounded), today’s wedding rings have a new look and are increasingly often embellished with diamonds. Those with traditional taste gravitate to yellow gold, but a white gold wedding ring represents a more modern style based on elegance and simplicity.
THE WEDDING BOARD
From delicate, draped fabrics to silk bows and tumbling flower arrangements, like a romantic dream, the wedding board is displayed at the entrance to the reception room. We recommend following the norms of etiquette when devising your seating plan. Each table should be given a name chosen at will, such as a musical instrument, a famous work of art, and so forth - a very useful strategy, even indispensable.
There is only one objective: to impress at all times. It all starts with the choice of venue, moving on to the menu selection and table decorations. But remember, food alone is not enough; the venue must be beautiful too! In fact, the colour combinations chosen add to the guests' enjoyment of the occasion. It is essential to choose something like a colour, a flower or an ornament which creates a theme and focuses attention
For the menu, be guided by the professionals. They will listen to your preferences and use them to construct a special menu for your reception. Of course, a welcome buffet is a must, but having one for dessert can be very glamorous, with striking colours and an eye-catching presentation. Themed tables are perfect for a banquet too, with a succession of shades that capture the guests' attention and entice their palates
Not just white...in fact, brides are increasingly choosing colourful cakes to match the reception’s theme. The presentation of the cake is the most spectacular part of the banquet, whether it’s one layer or more, white or covered in flowers or fruit, everything goes. All that matters is that it is truly special and the cake provides that final touch of class.
THE WEDDING FAVOURS
So much fuss to package 5 sugared almonds...better to keep things simple, a simple knot in white linen or satin is always stylish. Graphics and design are important for these small items too. Voile and organza are perfect for making little pouches to hold sugared almonds or messages.
