Are you dreaming of a luxury wedding full of magical moments and unforgettable experiences?
If so, you know your dream wedding will need more than just an ordinary venue with ordinary décor; you want something luxurious, unique, and special to make it stand out. The problem is, making that dream a reality is more than just a snap of a finger. There are many decisions and choices to be made, which can lead to frustration, a sense of feeling overwhelmed, and anxiousness. Not to mention, the time and money needed can be an added burden.
How do you pull off an exquisite wedding without losing your peace?
Fortunately, there is a way to achieve your fairy-tale wedding. With a few simple steps, you can enjoy an elegant wedding that no one will forget. Here are five ways you can easily add more luxury to your wedding:
The venue plays a large part in adding more elegance to your wedding. Think outside the box and consider places like outdoor gardens, ballrooms, large buildings, exceptional destinations, among others. For example, sites like art museums can serve as cost-effective locations that add a touch of originality and opulence.
The city of Cincinnati offers a few spectacular options in this department. Most notably, the Taft Museum of Art and the Cincinnati Museum of Art–two of our favorites!
Décor is one of the most critical elements to consider when planning a high-end wedding. To add a classic elegance to your decorations, opt for items with one color pallet and clean lines.
Draping is another great way to add more romantic touches to your wedding. When placing flowers, think of unique ways to arrange them, such as hanging them from the ceiling or using them as a backdrop.
Lighting sets any mood, so use fairy lights or chandeliers to bring in a luxurious feel. Not only is it practical, but the right lighting truly can change an entire room’s look and feel. Consider using a lighting wash over hanging installations or the bar for an extra touch, or pin spot lighting on those beautiful centerpieces. When the lights go down, you don’t want the decor you worked so hard planning to get lost.
It’s the little things that count. Adding a small luxe element to your wedding is a simple way to make the day more extravagant.
For example, consider incorporating a ladies’ lounge into your reception. Decorate a tent complete with furniture to provide a place where you and your female guests can retouch their makeup and take a break from the festivities.
Another unique element from one of my recent weddings–the father of the groom put together a bourbon bar to share his favorite bourbon pours with the evening’s guests.
Music on a track will work for any ordinary wedding, but for a luxurious one, consider bringing in a live band, orchestra, or choir to add more refinement to the atmosphere. There are so many fabulous musicians in the Cincinnati market and we’re happy to help you navigate finding the perfect fit for your event.
If you incorporate these tips into your wedding planning, you’re sure to have a more luxurious wedding experience that feels like you! Ready to get started planning a perfectly tailored wedding day? Reach out now to get started.
- WHITNEY, BRIDE
She took an enormous amount of stress off of our shoulders and helped us create the most perfect day of our entire lives. Taylor handled every situation with grace, confidence, and professionalism. I don’t think I’ve ever met a sweeter person, or someone who is able to bring such a calming and peaceful presence to any room she walks into!
"Taylor was our best decision in all of planning!"
- JANET, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
As a first-time mother-of-the bride, I wanted someone to guide us through the whole process. We thankfully selected the full-package and never worried whether what we were asking was included or not. Taylor was positive, organized and tremendously accommodating, especially as we changed plans 3 times due to COVID.
"Taylor listened and brought my daughter's dreams to life!"
- Alyssa, bride
Taylor was so great to work with from the very beginning! We hired her for day-of planning, yet she went above and beyond to take care of us throughout the entire planning process. You can tell Taylor truly cares about her couples & that was proven by how much energy she invested in us and our making our perfect day happen!
