If class, elegance and tradition are top on your list of priorities for your wedding day, then a classic wedding theme is the one you have been looking for.

Revisit an era of high society and formal dress, of dinner jackets for the men and white gloves for the ladies, and use the following tips to perfect your perfect day.

The Details: Classic weddings are all about channeling elegance by balancing minimalism with quality. Keep your color palate refined to simple black and white, but make sure you invest where it matters; the dress, the suits, the ring and the flowers. The smallest details can have the biggest impact on a classic wedding so make sure you choose the finest tableware, and the best paper stock for invitations and seat placements.

The Look: Apply the less is more philosophy to choosing your style for the day. Classic brides make the most of chic, sleek gowns, opting for cut and fit over embellishments and frills. Your hair and make up need to take the same philosophy, a short bob, or simple up-do will enhance your natural beauty and blow your groom away.

The Venue: The venue needs to take your breath away. Make sure you choose the most exclusive venue for both your ceremony and reception, with features like sweeping staircases to make grand entrances.

The Cars: You’ll need a classic, stylish car like a white Rolls Royce to take you between venues, and to have on hand for the photos.

The Photos: Classic weddings make the most of modern architecture in big cities. Make sure you work closely with your photographer to plan stunning locations for your photo shoot, and incorporate black and white shots into your portfolio.

Remember to breathe and enjoy your big day, confident in the fact that your wedding photos won’t date!
