“What are your colors?”
This question, among many others, are heard often as a bride who is in the midst of planning a wedding. The venue, time of year, and number of guests are also all significant factors in determining the type of wedding a couple will have. Some might say that in years past, there were two types of weddings – big or small – and for the most part, every other aspect was generally the same.
In 2015, even those getting married at City Hall tend to have a certain ‘type’ of wedding. And whether that theme was consciously chosen by the couple or not doesn’t seem to be the point. These days, weddings are a reflection of the style, personalities and relationship of the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Gone are the days of hideous bridesmaids dresses with puffed sleeves and outdated traditions. This is the age of distinctive nuptials.
Once a bride and groom starts planning their wedding, of course, they usually have an idea in mind of what type of celebration it will be. From the dress, to the place settings to the cake – no detail is left unturned – and a bride’s accessories shouldn’t be neglected either. After all, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” still resonates today.
For those brides currently in the planning process, we know how daunting the details can be, so let us lend a hand! Read ahead to find your style and what each says about you.
Modern – It’s a given that brides nowadays march to the beat of their own drums. Modern in this sense reflects a bride who yearns for a wedding that is chic, dramatic and minimalistic at the same time. Pois Moi combines those three seemingly contradictory characteristics into one beautiful collection of sleek lines, a soft silhouette and eye-catching diamonds.
Romantic – You are a bride who embraces her whimsical side, and that is reflected throughout each detail of your wedding. From soft pastel bridesmaid gowns to an eclectic head-piece atop windswept hair, nothing is off-limits on your wedding day. Yours is a true modern-day fairy tale.
Boho Chic – For the bride who adores distressed teak wood, succulents and who favors a farm-to-table style reception, you don’t get too caught up in the frills. Keeping everything light and airy, yet hearty is your ideal day.
Beach – Nautical is the name of the game for the couple who opts for a beach side wedding. Whether the preppy East Coast ‘navy and khaki’ combo calls your name, or you have set your sights on a destination like Turks and Caicos and plan for something more tropical – the serene scene and saltwater air makes for a joyous affair.
Traditional – For the utterly elegant and sophisticated bride, a wedding with all of the bells and whistles – but none of the frivolous extras (Instagram photo booth anyone?) – your nuptials will include the perfect flowers and a knockout band. The invitation may say Black Tie Optional, but having fun is not, and guests will arrive to impress.
