As a luxury event and wedding planner, I have had the privilege of designing some of the most glamorous and sophisticated weddings in Chicago. While every couple has their own unique style and vision, there is one wedding theme that never goes out of fashion - gold and white. With its timeless elegance and romantic allure, a gold and white wedding is perfect for couples who want to create a memorable celebration that exudes luxury and sophistication.
If you are planning a wedding for 2023 and are considering a gold and white theme, here are some tips and ideas to help you create the perfect atmosphere for your special day.
Choose the Right Venue
The venue you choose will set the tone for your entire wedding, so it's important to select one that complements your gold and white theme. Look for a venue with neutral or light-colored walls and floors, which will allow your gold and white décor to stand out. Consider venues with grand entrances or elegant ballrooms, which will add to the glamorous atmosphere of your wedding.
Incorporate Personalized Touches
Adding personalized touches to your wedding will make it even more special and unique. Consider incorporating elements that reflect your personalities, such as monogrammed napkins or custom cocktail stirrers. You could also create a photo booth with a gold and white backdrop and props that reflect your interests or hobbies.
Create a Romantic Atmosphere
A gold and white wedding is all about creating a romantic atmosphere that will leave your guests in awe. Consider using soft lighting to create a warm and inviting ambiance. Candles and string lights can add a touch of romance to your reception, while a live band or string quartet can provide the perfect soundtrack for your first dance.
Choose the Right Flowers
When it comes to flowers, choose blooms in shades of white, cream, and champagne to complement your gold and white theme. Roses, peonies, and hydrangeas are all classic choices that will add to the romantic atmosphere of your wedding. Consider adding gold accents to your floral arrangements, such as gold vases or ribbon, to tie in your theme.
Select the Perfect Stationery
Your wedding stationery is the first impression your guests will have of your wedding, so it's important to select stationery that reflects your gold and white theme. Consider using white or ivory paper with gold foil or letterpress for your invitations, and incorporate gold accents into your table numbers, place cards, and menus.
A gold and white wedding is a timeless and elegant choice for couples who want to create a luxurious and sophisticated celebration. With the right venue, personalized touches, romantic atmosphere, flowers, and stationery, your wedding will be a celebration that your guests will never forget.
