Theme Ideas: Classic Elegance

If you want a princess-style wedding in a grand ballroom, a classic wedding theme is the best choice for you, and you can make it unique with glamorous details that combine timeless elegance and contemporary design.


Personalise your wedding stationery

Traditional stationery designs are ideal for a classic wedding theme, so think white or ivory cards with lettering in colours like black, grey, silver or gold. A great, simple way to personalise your wedding stationery is to include your monogram in the design. Use calligraphy letters and let them take the central role in the overall design of your invitations, menus, place cards or ‘thank you’ notes.

Monogram-style stationery is a huge wedding trend at the moment and we love Weddingstar’s Monogram Simplicity stationery collection that features everything from invitations to wine and water bottle labels. You can also use their fabulous hand held embosser that will quickly add a personal mark to all of your stationery, including the wedding favour packaging.

Make your ceremony glamorous

From lush floral arrangements and elegantly adorned chairs to unique aisle runners, your glamorous wedding ceremony deserves stylish décor as well. While an aisle covered in colourful flower petals looks very romantic at almost any outdoor location, a beautifully designed aisle runner is the ideal solution for indoor venues. Weddingstar’s Monogram Simplicity personalised aisle runner is an elegant addition to your classical wedding theme, while their decorative chiffon sash makes a lovely adornment for your ceremony chairs.

Monogram Simplicity Personalised Unique Alternative Acrylic Wedding Ring Box

If you want a unique wedding ring pillow alternative, we think Weddingstar’s Monogram Simplicity personalised acrylic box is a fabulous detail everyone will notice. The Floral Dreams canvas backdrop will make a great display at your ceremony venue, and you can also use it as a backdrop for your photo booth at the reception.

Choose lush décor for your reception venue

Choose lush décor for your reception venue

Whether you prefer your reception venue to look simple and elegant or luxurious and flamboyant, why not make a statement with a few unique details that will make your event stand out! Ambience lighting can instantly add romantic flair to any space, and we think Weddingstar’s battery operated string of lights with mercury glass globes is a fabulous decoration. You can suspend them above the tables, use them to adorn your centrepieces, or even put them in clear glass vases instead of flowers. The White blown glass hanging heart is another eye-catching detail that will transform your venue and enhance your wedding photography, while the DIY paper dahlias are perfect for finishing touches. Finally, to adorn your elegant wedding cake with a fabulous cake topper, you can use the contemporary vintage bride and groom porcelain figurine from Weddingstar, or their white acrylic floating monogram.

Unique bonbonniere ideas

Unique bonbonniere ideas

A classic wedding theme allows plenty of options for bonbonniere. The simplest way to impress your guests is to give them delicious edible favours such as chocolate bars, candies or cupcakes presented in a gorgeous packaging. Weddingstar’s cute Transparent Chair Favour Boxes creatively showcases the tasty trea! Add personalised ribbon, box wrap or favour tag for that prefect finishing touch. You could also pack your gift in Weddingstar’s white linen drawstring favour bags if you are looking for a simple and elegant solution. Decorative candles are also a lovely bonbonniere choice, and one of our favourite ones is Weddingstar’s elegant lace wedding cake candle which comes with a gorgeous clear box with little pink ribbon attached.
