If you are looking for a unique wedding theme that will be super eye-catchy, I have a brilliant idea for you – rock a masquerade wedding! This theme is especially popular for Halloween, Mardi Gras and weddings in Venice but actually you can rock it any time and in any colors you love.
A masquerade wedding is a refined affair, so forget all those relaxed looks or rustic details. Trendy moody décor is very hot for such weddings, and dark florals will highlight your tablescapes at their best. Don’t add too much glitter to décor not to get a tasteless look. Don’t forget about masks! They should be on you, your guests and maybe used for décor, too. Now let’s have a look at some ideas to pull off such nuptials.
Whatever dress you choose, it should be elegant and refined enough as your nuptials are very exquisite. A mask will be your main accessory, so choose an adorable mask of lace, rhinestones, pearls and feathers, sparkling ones look amazing. There are also oversized feather options that look great for Mardi Gras brides. A mask is an indispensable accessory in such a case, you may rock it any time and make some pics with it for sure. If you don’t want white or ivory, try a white and gold, copper or even a black mask but highlight your colored mask with some other accessory, for example, gloves or a necklace in the same style and colors. As for the groom, choose a black or a black and gold mask for him, let it be contrasting, and his tuxedo will be a perfect match.
Ask all your guests to bring some matching masks and display some for those of them who forget. You can also choose masks for them yourself and give them to wear and as wedding favors.
Your wedding décor should be refined, so rock exquisite tablescapes in dark moody shades: burgundy, navy, black, dark grey and emerald, brown and blues. Greenery and moody florals, candles and lanterns are great for creating such table settings. Use masks here, too: make cool table centerpieces with them and use them for holding place cards and menus. Give your table décor a vibe that matches your theme: Halloween, vampire, Mardi Gras or other.
Masks can be used for seating charts and place cards, for topping cakes and cupcakes – for anything. The main idea is not to be excessive not to get tasteless décor, create moody and mystical décor and wear some masks, your wedding will be unforgettable!
