Masquerade Themed Wedding

Friday, September 14, 2012

It's supposed to be 102 degrees this weekend and still I can't help but look forward to the fact that Fall is coming really soon! As much as I love outdoor weddings and believe me, i've certainly had my fill of gorgeous warm weather weddings, i'm sooo looking forward to the drama and elegant styles of the cooler seasons!

Colder weather means ladies in full length gowns and men in jackets for a formal look, rather than during Spring and Summer when you can get away with the casualness of just a vest, suspenders and a button up. I've been on a David Tutera "My Fair Wedding" marathon these past few days and although i'm not fully caught up, i'm sure this post was inspired by all the non-traditional brides who love bold and creatively detailed weddings.

There are so many ways to implement a masquerade themed wedding and it doesn't just have to be on Halloween, New Years Eve or Mardi Gras! Start by setting the tone with an ornate save-the-date or embellished mask silhouette on your invitation. You can deck your entire reception area out with lavish table cloths, tons of opulent lighting, request your guests to wear either all black or jewel tones complete with their own personal fancy masks. If you're not fully committed to transforming your reception completely, you can dedicate a photo backdrop or booth area with additional masks to provide your guests with and a face painting or mask creating station as a treat for the kiddies. Imagine all the stunning possibilities when you set this theme in motion and each guest brings their character to your soiree!
