A truly elegant wedding doesn’t need a lot of fancy decorations to make it beautiful. In fact, keeping your wedding look simple is the best thing you can do if you’re hoping to achieve an elegant look (plus simple is more affordable).

Get this look! Simple but Elegant

The Introduction
Your wedding invitation is the first glimpse guests will have of your wedding style. Find an invitation that reflects your elegant style beautifully while remaining in your budget. We’ve chosen the Simply Stylish Separate and Send Invitation. We love that it features a touch of decorative flair against a smooth ecru background. The best part is you get the invite, reception card and response card all for one low price!

Leave the color behind.
Wedding colors don’t need to be bright or bold to get the look you’ve always dreamed of. Stick to a classic color palette of black and white or black and ivory. Notice how linens and flowers in white or ivory give the entire venue a crisp, clean look. Dress the bridal party in black tuxes and bridesmaid dresses and they’ll be looking sharp all day long. Want a little bit of color? Greenery will enhance the setting without taking away from its elegant look and feel.

Decorate with intention.
Going overboard on decorations is easy with Pinterest always in your back pocket! If you want a simple but elegant wedding celebration, you will likely need to cut yourself off at some point. Find a few projects you like and do them well. Gather photos of the look you’re going for and don’t deviate from the plan. We love the ivory cake with simple floral accents and black satin bow. We also love the idea of adding a personalized touch to your reception. Check out these super affordable custom wedding napkins with your monogram for a truly classic detail.
