parisian wedding style
Paris is The City of Love. Gorgeous views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, the world’s largest collection of pre-20th century art at The Louvre, the gothic architecture of the Notre Dame and tranquil boat rides along the Seine River all romanticise this French city. And with Carrie, our lovely and loved-up Head of Merchandising, getting engaged in Paris last weekend, you can take it from us that this city would make a perfect theme for your big day.
That’s now a total of SEVEN engagements in our offices over the past couple of months so keep your eyes peeled for more juicy details throughout the year. We just can’t hide our excitement! And no, the wedding team is not bribing anyone, we promise…
Parisian wedding day style
Invite your friends and family to a French vintage affair with these floral ‘Vintage Roses’ Wedding Invitations by Claryce Design. The bespoke stationery is beautifully handmade and comes with a chic pocket envelope complete with ribbon detail. They also have a Mixed Set Of Six ‘Parisian’ Gift Tags featuring the Eiffel Tower – these would look delightful tied around wedding favours or dangling from the rim of wine glasses.
For favours with a French touch, the Wrapped Soap On Vintage Saucer by Patchwork Harmony offers just the right amount of shabby chic. Available in two delicious scents and designs, it’s the ultimate stylish gift for your guests. If you’ve already decided on your favours, then the Complete Gift Wrap Set ‘Pink Paris’ by Amber Burge is a perfect wrap for decorating them in Parisian style. Another favour option is the Vintage Style Bird Candle by Light Illuminate Enjoy. Not only will they look great on your wedding tables but they’ll be loved by all your guests too.
Add some Paris-inspired touches to your tables like the Set Of Three Patterned Zinc Pails by Shrinking Violet. They’d look great grouped together as centrepieces and filled with pastel garden flowers for a homely edge. Finish off by loosely tying a Small Paper Heart Bunting Vintage Style by EdgeInspired around the edges. Other wedding decorations could include the Set Of Three Paris Garden Boxes by Rose & Grey. Use for storing wedding gifts and cards throughout the day, as a holdall for bunches of flowers or an alcove filled with French treats like sweet pastries and macaroons. Delish!
Hang the Paris set of Rusty Hanging Decorations by The London Garden Trading Company above the head table for a vintage finish and complete by placing the‘Mr & Mrs’ Vintage Style Wedding Sign by Hush Baby Sleeping on the back of your chairs. No one will be able to miss the lovely newlyweds! Opt for the Green Wooden Multi Photo Frame by Primrose & Plum to display your seating plan. Use each window as a table outline for a stylish, rustic impact. And even better, the frame can then be re-used to immortalise all of the gorgeous memories from your wedding day.
You can incorporate some French-inspired jewellery accessories into your wedding day too. The Vintage Rose Comb by Gillian Million will add a touch of elegance to your hairstyle while the Rose Earrings by LILY & JOAN are a simple yet seriously cute addition, without detracting attention from your bridal gown.
