Autumn Inspiration: A Luxury Jewel Wedding Theme
The Bridal Look
First let’s focus on your bridal make-up: incorporate deep berry and blackcurrant tones into your wedding style. A statement lip in a raspberry red will look so gorgeous, and it’s an incredibly romantic look. I think a cranberry red flower crown with lots of greenery and billowing blooms would look stunning as part of your aisle style. What’s more, it would go beautifully with your statement berry lip. Finish your wedding style off with plum, navy or emerald wedding shoes. They’ll look so fabulous peeping out as you make your way down the aisle. Your groom will look seriously handsome in a plush velvet suit jacket paired with chinos – this look is more casual than a typical wedding suit, but it is ultra stylish.
Romantic Wedding Flowers
If you’re planning an Autumn celebration, you’ll need to discuss with your florist which flowers are in season. However, deep ruby reds and plush greenery work wonderfully with a jewel wedding theme. Finish your wedding bouquet off with some long velvet ribbons in a variety of luxury colours, you could even use gold for a dash of glamour.
A jewel wedding theme is all about being completely luxurious and lavish. Why not source or hire plush velvet furniture to use around your venue? Vintage armchairs in maroon or burgundy will look ultra grand, and can be used a chill-out area for your guests to sip on glamorous cocktails.
Show off your jewel wedding style with your stationery. You could mix and match save the dates and invitations by using a variety of jewel colours. Golden calligraphy font will look stunning and will also stand out against the darker colours.
Jewel Wedding Tables
It’s so easy to incorporate a jewel wedding theme into your reception tables. Use rich plum napkins and golden cutlery at your place settings. Tall navy candles with a luxurious scent will look fabulous in gilded candle holders, and they’ll create a romantic glow at your tables. Your table will look fit for a queen! Display your wedding cake on a divine wine red table runner, and place on a golden cake stand. Any cake design will look gorgeous for this theme, just be sure you use a jewel colour palette of red, navy, plum and green!
Styling Your Bridesmaids
One of the best things about a jewel wedding theme is the fact that there are so many colours to choose from. Whether you style your bridesmaids in wine red gowns, or mix and match with emerald and navy dresses, they will always look fab! Maybe discuss with your bridesmaids which colours they’d like to wear – this way you know they’re going to feel comfortable.
This theme is the epitome of luxury, romance and style. Golden metallic accents work perfectly with a jewel colour palette, and add to the glitz and glamour of the theme.
