    Hand-painted invites and breezy calligraphy set the tone for a romantic affair, while watercolor details give otherwise simple paper instant style. Add vintage stamps to your wedding correspondence for a custom, one-of-a-kind look.

    Clematis, sweet peas, hellebore and ranunculus help define the pastel palette, and the mix of botanical varieties gives arrangements a natural, gardenlike feel.

    A formfitting, long-sleeve gown with delicate lace detailing looks royal-wedding ready. Embellish the elegant look with a tasteful crown or bejeweled headpiece—a great option if your gown's neckline is too high to pair with a necklace.
