Has it always been your dream to make a grand staircase entrance on your wedding day?
Well then, this one’s for you! We’ve put together a few inspirational ideas for how to make that dream of yours come true. Whether you’re an understated bride, a diva by birth, a nature lover or a princess-bride, we’ll take care of you.
- Less Really is More, Sometimes
For the cool, laid back couples, simplicity is key. It is, in a way, a reflection of your character. Having a wedding doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your down-to-earth style of life. To pull this off right, (without having it seem like it was a rushed affair) there are a few must-haves. Your bread & butter here are: eucalyptus flowers, single foliage sprigs, plenty of candles & lots of white!
- The Bold & the Beautiful
Ever seen a Bollywood set & thought, “WOW”? How about bring some of the dazzle to your entrance on your wedding day? Bright, vivid colors & ornaments work best with this theme. Go for lush floral arrangements (you can skip the greenery here), accessorize with metallic ornaments like lanterns, colorful ribbons & voluminous chiffon.
- All Things Nature
Nothing accentuates the richness of a rustic/nature-inspired venue more than the warmth of wooden motifs. Splurge on oak stands, greenery & candles. For an added detail, how about perfecting the setup with warm-toned bee lights? Since rustic themes generally inspire warmth, many couples favor this style during winter dates. That said, choosing a location that offers a staircase that will blend in with the overall essence is equally important. Try looking for locations with narrower staircases for added coziness, wooden railings & warmer-toned floorings.
- Did Someone Say Fairytale?
Between growing up to Disney’s princesses & watching real-life princesses make their nuptial debut, it’s inevitable for a girl to dream. If you are one of the fairytale-dreamers, let’s work on making your glide down the staircase a royal spectacle. For this, you will need an abundance of neutral-colored, full-petal flowers (such as peonies, hydrangeas, or large roses), warm-toned candles paired with mirror bases to add some sparkle, all laid out on a marble, majestic staircase. As simple as 1, 2, 3!
