Here are a few tips to keep in mind when creating your all-white wedding look:
1. Play with opposites. One reason many brides wont opt for an all-white wedding is because they want to be the only one in white. But as long as the bridesmaids are on the opposite end of the dress spectrum, the bride is sure to be the focal point. If the bride is walking down the aisle in a full skirted lace ball gown, the bridesmaids would complement her perfectly in slim white chiffon. Alternatively, if the bride is in a light organza or tulle gown, the bridesmaids would look perfectly sweet in a short lace frock.
2. Layer on texture. Neutrals have a way of sounding a little, well, blah, but playing with textures in the cream and ivory family creates an incredibly luxurious vibe. We love metallic accents to dress up a formal wedding, sheer tulle table runners over a linen table cloth, and shades of gray over a textural paper for the stationery. And you can complement cream bridesmaid dresses with a robust bouquet of varying blooms and a satin or grosgrain ribbon.
3. Complement the theme. While we love a grand all-white wedding set in a gorgeous ballroom (or castle!) the idea can really work in any setting. Warm golden tones for a farm or country wedding work perfectly with the natural backdrop, while white seems like a perfect alternative to the quintessential light blue for a seaside soiree.
