So if you are looking for classy and elegant, without breaking the bank, or even if you have an endless budget, then those finishing touches will make your wedding day extra stylish and sophisticated. Make sure that you have these must-haves to add an extra element of glamour.

The dress

When it comes to wedding dress shopping, it can be incredibly stressful knowing exactly where to start. You might want to try and follow fashion, but with a range of cuts and silhouettes available, there’s no guarantee that what looks good on the store mannequin will suit your body type. If you are looking for your ideal wedding dress, then you will need to make sure that you factor in enough time to visit a range of boutiques and try on a variety of styles. When it comes to finding the ideal dress, you may also want to schedule in some time with a dressmaker or tailor too, as they will help you to adjust and cut any dress so that you can have the stylish gown of your dreams.

Unique to you

Your wedding should be as unique as you are, so make sure that you don’t let family members influence your decisions. If your heart is set on getting married overseas or in an exotic location, then you be sure to go ahead with your plans. Venues such as The Taylor Pavilion can help you to have your dream beach wedding, in a stunning location. Plus, most venues will be more than happy to help you style and dress your reception venue so that your guests will be blown away. So don’t feel pressurized to follow the latest bridal magazine trends, remain true to yourself and your likes and interests as a couple.

Less is more

Table decorations, confetti, place names, wedding favors… All those finishing touches can have your head in a spin. Not to mention the costs soon add up too. So, if you are planning a stylish and sophisticated day, then be sure to follow the ‘less is more’ approach. Pick a few key finishing touches to add a hint of class and elegance to your venue, but you don’t need to go overboard. Remember why you are getting married in the first place, no one will think any less of you if you don’t have place cards.

When it comes to planning a wedding that is stylish and sophisticated, it can be tough to know where to start. So, be sure not to let fashion and family members influence your choices, and choose a few key finishes, to make sure that your big day is simple and elegant.
