1. Keep Your Paper Trail Consistent

Your invitation or save-the-date is the first glimpse guests will get of your wedding style. Keep all the paper looking similar – from the invitation and stamps to the program and response card envelope — will ensure your wedding day has a cohesive look and feel.

2. Think Texture When It Comes To Flowers

In the same way materials like chiffon and satin just work together, certain flower textures also play off each other for a romantic, bohemian style.

3. Don’t Be Afraid Of Patterns

Granted it’s safe to use all solid linens and colors, but even just a hint of a pattern on the plates and chargers will really punch up the room. Tip: Use patterns in small doses so as not to overpower your space.

4. Accessorize Your Reception Tables

Just like the perfect necklace or bracelet finishes off an outfit, so do table accessories. Here, the matching metal accents and slim wood menu and escort cards keep the table’s decor natural yet refined.
