charming provence destination wedding ideas cover

Provence is a beautiful and enchanting place, and many of us dream to spend a holiday here. If you want a destination wedding and can’t choose a location, we strongly recommend you to choose Provence! Beautiful chateaux, lavender aromas, mild climate and French chic will make your big day very special. Let’s see how to pull off a Provence wedding.

What To Wear

Choose a stunning wedding dress with a French chic touch: it can be either very simple or incredibly refined, it all depends on the style of your wedding. For a formal event I’d advise a sweetheart neckline mermaid wedding dress with straps or without, with beading. If you want something modern and simple, opt for a flowing dress with a plunging neckline in ivory or blush color, which is ideal for such a beautiful and delicate location.

Table Décor

Choose lights shades or pastels; grey, lilac, pink, blush, blue or ivory are amazing for Provence-inspired décor. Keep it simple even for a formal event: French chic means nothing excessive. Use potted greenery, lavender and herbs to make a table runner, or prefer greenery and flower table runners. Choose airy and flowy textiles, add candles and vintage cutlery, and voila, your ideal table setting is ready.
