Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, and the design of your special day should reflect your love story and personal style. Whether you envision a dramatic mountaintop affair or an elegant ranch setting, there are key elements that can elevate your wedding experience. To achieve a timeless and romantic luxury wedding design, it is essential to focus on an aesthetic that embodies your vision and priorities. From choosing the right color palette to selecting the perfect lighting and decor elements, every decision you make plays a crucial role in setting the tone for your celebration. Let’s explore the best steps and tips for creating a wedding design that will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests.

Curating an Aesthetic

When it comes to luxury wedding design, it really all begins with understanding your vision. It’s important to think about how you and your guests want to feel on your big day. Once you have a good idea of that, you can start to consider the specific aesthetic elements that can help evoke those feelings.

Once you have a clear picture of your preferences, you can assess venue options and specific spaces with the help of a wedding planner to determine how they enhance and elevate them. Whether it involves a complete transformation or simply adding some touches to the existing elements, the goal is to create a stunning, dramatic, and captivating atmosphere that exceeds your expectations.

Creating Ambiance with Lighting

Lighting is the number one way we can create ambiance and control the vibe throughout the evening. When it comes to luxury wedding design, lighting is essential because it can enhance architectural elements of the venue, highlight the landscape, and elevate the decor. Incorporating high-end event lighting can transform a simple space into a glamorous and magical setting.

Achieving the perfect ambiance is only possible with the right lighting, highlighting the focal points of the venue and decor. Whether it is a stunning chandelier, a grand staircase, or a beautiful floral arrangement, strategic lighting can draw the eye to these elements. A well-balanced lighting contract would include: uplights to color wash the entire space, pin spots to color correct floral and highlight important focal points or decor, and spotlights so that your guests can see the special moments (i.e. cake cutting, first dance, toasts, etc).

At Juls Sharpley Events, we like to start the evening in a champagne color wash, giving the space a perfect candlelit glow. This is done through the use of high caliber uplights, candles, and decorative lighting, such as chandeliers. Throughout the evening, we balance this with the outside light and as sun sets, monitor the overall lighting and color in the space to be balanced. Once we’ve entered dancing, we may select to change the overall color scheme of the room into deeper, richer tones and colors to set the mood for dancing!

Incorporating Meaningful Touches

When it comes to luxury wedding planning, it’s all about incorporating meaningful and personal touches that will make your big day truly special. From customized details to sentimental nods, here are a few ways to add that extra touch of luxury to your wedding:

  • Personalized stationery and invitations. It’s so meaningful when couples choose a fully custom route for stationery. It allows for the creation of something truly special. You could incorporate elements of who you are as individuals and as a couple into the stationery design, whether there is a watercolor, die cut card shapes, icons used throughout, line drawings, etc. These elements could be anything along the lines of shared hobbies and passions, proposal location/story, how/where the couple met, favorite travel destinations, pets, really anything special and meaningful to you as a couple!
  • Incorporating sentimental elements into the decor. Many couples choose to bring in family heirlooms into their decor. Sometimes it is the actual piece that is brought in, other times we are choosing symbolic items to keep the cherished heirloom protected. Another great nod to you as a couple could be to include notions of your favorite travel destinations or other sentimental moments you have shared as a couple.
