9 ESSENTIAL GLAMOROUS DETAILS TO CONSIDER WHEN PLANNING A DESTINATION WEDDING
You can never be too glamourous in life, so there is no reason your dream wedding shouldn’t. As they say, it is either you go big, or you go home.
If you plan to make your destination wedding unforgettable, these essential luxurious details will guarantee you a sumptuous Big Day!
1.Pick Your Wedding Style
Choosing a wedding theme is the first step to planning a wedding. It guides you in styling your wedding. From choosing the right location to décor and choosing your color palette. When it comes to glam themes, here are possible options:
- Glitter, glam, and sparkle
- Royal glamour
- Old-world glam
- Enchanted winter
- Lavish white wedding
Whatever theme you go for, remember glam rhymes with opulence, luxury, crystals, and jewels. Do not be scared to dream big.
2.Choose the Ideal Venue
Whether you wish to opt for a beach wedding or a countryside Spanish wedding, your wedding venue should reflect opulence. For an indoor venue, pick a ballroom with baroque architectural features with high ceilings and dramatic light fixtures. Other venue ideas include an old castle, a grand estate or historic mansion, a beachfront hotel, or a mountainside hacienda. Get a local or an international wedding planner who will know how to handle all the booking details on-site with local vendors.
3.Custom Invitation Cards
Nothing screams luxury more than custom hand-calligraphed invitation cards to introduce your guests to your world. Want to dazzle them even more? Add to that a boxed invitation with hand delivery.
4.Tall and Dramatic Centers Pieces
Glamourous weddings and drama are a pair. Do not shy away from adding tall centerpieces with lots of assorted and colorful wildflowers to add volume to your glamourous reception. You want to blow the minds of your guest with fine details. You can even get your baker and florist to work on a tall floral cake composition.
5.Adding Gold Details
Gold is a color that automatically makes everything seem glamorous. Even if it is not your main theme color, you can subtly introduce it to create a shimmering look that twinkles under the lights. For example, champagne flutes, plate holders, cutlery, escort cardholders, a seat display board. You could never go wrong with gold.
6.Layout an Itinerary for Your Guest
Chances are your guest will arrive at the wedding destination a couple of days before the ceremony. Planning activities for them will make your wedding weekend one to remember. Set up a lounge bar to relax or plan for a local tour and indulge in some local fun activities.
8.A Lavish Décor
Your décor should display a lush and elegant design with exquisite floral arrangements, candlelight tables to create intimate lighting. Adding crystal stemware, embellished flatware, and quality linens will add a luxurious touch to the reception. Think of luxury sheer or star draping for a stunning effect.
Lighting is very important, especially with an outdoor destination wedding. But it doesn’t mean you have to keep things simple. To glam things up, decide if you want ornate chandeliers, lanterns, colorful up-lighting, or cultural light fixtures that hang. For glamourous effect in an airy venue, floral arrangements hanging from rafters or chandeliers will work magic.
