Elegant Wedding Location


The wedding location is the most important element of an elegant wedding style.

The place contributes heavily to the atmosphere and gives clues to your guests on what to expect. It also act as an elegant backdrop of all the photography on your special day.

When considering the location, the elegant bride considers the accessibility to the place. She reviews the availability of transportation, otherwise she organizes for it. This is especially important if she is planning a destination wedding.

For instance, if you decide to have your wedding on a charming rustic farm, you could add a tip on the kind of shoes to wear.

How To Choose An Elegant Wedding Location?

Here are some tips:

# Go monochromatic. That means that color palate of the place is somewhat uniform. Too many colors in one place looks cluttered or busy.

# Go for high ceilings. It adds to the grandeur of the wedding.

# Test the lighting. Visit the place at the time of your supposed wedding, if possible at the same season too. Natural sunlight that filters in are much better than office-looking lights.

# Are there walls or pillars that get in the way of the view? Keep your guests happy.

# If there are ‘ugly parts’, advise your photographer not to take any pictures in that area. Ugly parts could mean ‘lighted neon green EXIT’ signs etc.

# If you would like constructed glamour or elegance, choose a place with a plain white background like a blank canvas and hiring a decorator. You don’t have to just use a florist. Flowers, lights, candles and lanterns always enhances the beauty of a place.
