How to add old world glamour into your wedding day

September 27, 2014

Old world glamour is classic and undoubtedly beautiful, making it a perfect place to start when looking for inspiration for your wedding day. Looking for ways to incorporate this into your special day? Here's how:

Choosing your venue

Choosing the right venue can make all the difference. If you want to evoke old world glamour, a place with traditionally beautiful architecture, a grand staircase and warm wooden finishings can immediately give your special day a sense of effortless class. The ornate stairwell can also make for a great place to take some of your wedding day photos.

Splash out and get that gown

Old world glamour is timeless, utterly chic and utilises classic silhouettes and luxurious fabrics. At the Met Gala, stars show up dressed to the nines, and while this is an opportunity for various famous figures to step outside the box, many stars showcase quality, class and style. This often means simple shapes that highlight the beauty of the female body, with beautiful details such as beading, a textured fabric or flowing train.

When choosing a wedding dress to fit your old world glamour theme, think refined decadence and ageless grace.

It's all in the details

Once you have your venue and dress sorted, go to town on the details. Attention to detail can take your wedding from simply lovely to utterly memorable and beautiful. Hang an assortment of regal chandeliers in your dining room, create eye-catching centrepieces with white calla lilies and blossoms and hire vintage china sets with gold cutlery. 

You can also incorporate modern touches to bring forth your own personality. With your beautiful white and gold details with a touch of warm wood and green foliage, opt for a cupcake wedding cake as opposed to a traditional option.
