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.
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.
Provence is a home of lavender, lavender is its symbol and soul, so use it widely at your wedding to bring a delicate Provence spirit. Go to the lavender fields for your ceremony or to take pictures; lavender looks perfect in one flower bouquets or together with wheat for a rustic touch, lavender is amazing for creating centerpieces of any kind – from rustic to the most refined ones. Lavender boutonnieres, soaps, bath salts, oil, table runners, food and drinks – rock this flower everywhere you want and fill your wedding with this adorable fragrance!
Food And Drinks
France is famous for unique and delicious tastes, it’s a home of many trends and culinary masterpieces that are known all over the world, so pay special attention to the food and drinks. As for the wedding cake, you may choose a naked, semi naked, croquembouche wedding cake topped with lavender. A cheese or a macaron tower is rather typical for France, and your guests will be amazed. Serve lavender lemonade and give delicious baguettes as wedding favors!
