How to Plan a Luxury Wedding
Ready to plan a luxury wedding that’s bound to make a big impression? Here are a dozen dazzling things that are fundamental when it comes to creating an opulent celebration.
#1 To begin with, hire a wedding planner who knows how to design and implement an impeccable event. Planners at the top of the game include U.S wedding designers Mindy Weiss, Marcy Blum, Colin Cowie, Ed Libby, Joy Proctor, and Calder Clark, along with Wedniksha and Motwane Entertainment & Weddings both based in India and Mark Niemerko and Sarah Haywood in London.
#2 Choose a venue that will set the stage for your glamorous style. There is nothing like a French chateau, an English manor, or a waterfront villa in Thailand to say “welcome to a luxurious event.”
#3 Decorate with sparkling chandeliers and candlelight. Surround your guests with a luxury atmosphere fit for royalty.
#4 Wear a couture dress from the designer who makes you swoon, and buy a complete trousseau including a reception gown, getting-ready robe and honeymoon outfits.
#5 Choose wedding shoes from top designers like Louboutin, Badgley Mischka or Jimmy Choo. For the height of glam, get a pair that is encrusted with jewels.
#6 If you’re a groom, choose a tuxedo by Armani, Paul Smith, or Brunello Cucinelli, and make it work with fashion forward shoes.
#7 Show off your spectacular wedding ring and wear diamond earrings or golden jewelry that sets off your polished look.
#8 Arrive in an antique car or exit with all your friends on a chartered jet or private plane.
#9 Walk down the aisle surrounded by flowers and get married under an elegant arbor dripping with flowers.
#10 Set the table with real china, luxurious fabrics, and stunning flatware.
#11 Serve a multi-tiered cake and have a top chef create your dinner menu with a wide selection of top flight wines and cocktails. Remember to keep the champagne flowing and to offer sumptuous spreads for snacking before your main meal.
#12 Light up the dance floor with live music from a celebrated band and set up fireworks to keep the excitement going.
