It's all about the motif with this style of wedding. And just about anything can work as one. Use a cute, bright-red lobster for a wedding by the bay; stripes or polka dots for a playful country-club wedding; or his and hers silhouettes for more of a modern hotel setting. Just don’t smother your day in matchy-matchy details. Instead, pick and choose where to use your wedding motif, like on your cake and invites, and keep the rest of the details toned down. “Everything doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy -- be so chic as to mix things up,” says wedding designer Joyce Scardina Becker of Events of Distinction in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Texture is key to creating a warm, intimate atmosphere. Drape the ceiling with fabric, wash the walls with light and top your tables with overlays that match your palette. Go for centerpieces that are low to the table to promote conversation and to bring a nice, lush element. We know you want your wedding to be pretty -- take it up a notch by adding extra chandeliers to the trees if it's outdoors, ordering up a tall-tiered cake or getting two incredible floral displays to add interest to your space.
