A Dreamy Take on DC Weddings

Posted by AngeloEverton on November 20th, 2011

Who does not love a good DC wedding? The state capital is a wonderful place to have the wedding of your dreams. If you are lucky enough like other brides who get to have DC weddings in this fabulous place, you have the opportunity of a lifetime to dress up an occasion that you will never forget – and perhaps have that occasion make it to the lifestyle pages of the local newspaper as well. Here are some indulgent tips to dress up your glam wedding in DC.

When thinking about the design aspect for your DC wedding, make sure that you do not let go of tradition in favour of the more newfangled style of going about DC weddings. There is something romantic and glamorous about old world style that will truly make your DC wedding one for the books. Starting with the invitations, hire a good calligrapher to hand write the names of all your guests. It is even better if you have it hand delivered to their personal addresses to give them that feeling of being important enough to be accorded such a personal favour like it.

DC weddings are also best done in colors that go well with the season. Forget about the being super unique by combining lime green with chocolate brown for your DC wedding – color combinations like those are best reserved for snazzy cities like New York where “fast paced” and “up to the minute” are keywords everyone swears by. In DC, however, things look better when done in traditional pastels or deep and rich colors. Take your cue from the weather: if it is in the colder months pretty plums and charcoal greys work best. In spring-summer, go for bright tones.

Make your DC wedding one style notch better than the rest by hiring a horse-drawn carriage instead of the usual luxury vehicle or limousine, which is so passé. A horse drawn carriage would make heads turn to see the radiant bride and would certainly give you Cinderella-like feelings of excitement as you make your way to your handsome prince at the wonderful hall. Add to that a pair of well-dressed assistants who will escort you on your way down and people will wonder if a real live princess is actually getting married in the city in DC weddings style.

And finally, do splurge on the menu while toning down on the reception program. Food is something people will always remember, as well as foibles that are too old-aged to do in these days like the garter toss and releasing of doves. The more time your guests have to eat and talk among themselves, the better the experience. Never subject your single friends to the agony of having to walk up on stage to try to catch the bridal bouquet. Chances are in this day and age you will have more friends who are happily single than desperately looking for someone to marry in the soonest possible time. It is up to you to make every single guest – old, young, single or attached – to be as well-fed, comfortable and happy as possible on this special night.

Give your DC wedding the style and grandeur it truly deserves. Keep in mind these helpful tips on how to keep DC weddings luxurious and impressive without trying too much.
