Wedding Styling: Grecian

Channel your inner wedding goddess with THE most swoon-worthy wedding trend of the year. Think gold, white, laurel leaves and olive trees. The epitome of romance, this look will take you and your guests straight back to ancient Greece.

To bring this oh-so lovely look to life, we teamed up with award winning wedding stylists, Knot & Pop, to transform a blank canvas wedding venue into a Grecian paradise. Get ready for an inspiration overload – followed by a mass Pinterest session.

Full of organic textures, natural tones and enough foliage to satisfy Caesar himself, this look is an update on a (very) old classic. Just the thing for a woodland or garden wedding, Grecian styling is rustic refined.

When choosing your colour palette, look to nature for inspiration. The simplicity of an ivory garland with ranunculus, honeysuckle and leafy tones – from grey sages to olive greens – will set the tone for an undeniably elegant tablescape. Foliage is key to this look and will really add to the alfresco feel.

To give this look a contemporary edge, Knot & Pop have incorporated metallics into the colour scheme. Introducing gold tones adds warmth and a little bit of fun. Touches of metallic are best found in the details. Include hints of gold in the place setting by using gold plated cutlery and gold leaf napkin rings. Carry this through the table with spray painted gold leaves, gold dusted olives and metallic wire table numbers.

The finishing touches will really bring the look together and give your styling the wow factor. Long candle sticks are perfect for adding height to the table and will give your venue a romantic glow once the sun goes down. Make sure elements like favours and guest books are in keeping with the rest of the wedding. We love Knot & Pop’s idea of carrying the theme through every last detail, making sure that all important laurel crown is on the beautifully crafted menu cards from Wildflower Illustration Co, the ‘Sow in Love’ Wild Flower Seed Favours and the Personalised Wooden Olive Odyssey Guestbook.
