How to have a laid-back luxe wedding

Laid-back luxe wedding themes are the biggest wedding trend of 2019, but what does this term actually mean? In essence, it’s all about creating a wedding that looks elegant and relaxed.

We’re talking lots of white – from flowers to tablecloths to chandeliers – and with a really informal feel to it. Here are some tips on how you can put together a detailed and flawless wedding.

Perfect Location

We truly understand the importance of creating your perfect wedding in the most stunning surroundings. With a beautiful Georgian manor house like Gosfield Hall, this part of the Essex countryside will be sure to take your breath away.

A castle may be a little too extravagant, but you also don’t want your wedding to look too casual in your local village hall. Choose somewhere that has extensive outdoor space for that laid-back feel, paired with a historic building for added elegance.

Choose Your Colour Palette Wisely

The best way to go about choosing your colour scheme (if you don’t have a specific theme in mind), is to coordinate with your venue. Think about the season during your wedding and the colours that will be present in the flowers at the grounds.

Sophisticated colours are often those that are more neutral, such as champagne and blush, combined with pastels for a touch of brightness and warmth. With coral being the named pantone colour of the year, it’s a great choice. For added richness, pair either silver or gold to run through your colours.

If you’re feeling particularly chilled, you could even follow in Malin Akerman’s footsteps and opt for a pink dress. @PureWow! recently gave the inside scoop into Malin & Jack Donnelly’s laid-back luxe wedding if you’re in need of inspiration.

Decor On Point

There are many ways to dress your venue for a beautiful and effortless feel. Think full-bloom flowers, like roses and dahlias, in a variety of different shades to match your theme.

Try opting for seasonal flowers mixed with non-floral additions such as berries to make some beautiful table decorations. Again, think about adding some sparkle to your table decorations with glassware with gilded edges.

Consider candles and lighting for a laid-back luxe feel too. Beware of going too overboard with a shiny disco ball or bright white lights though. Warm, cool lights are the best way to set the tone – lanterns and candles are a great way to make lighting the venue a little more interesting. Or if you want to err more on the side of ‘luxe’, an oversized chandelier or two should do the trick.
