Wedding Style Ideas to Inspire Every Type of Couple

A wedding style is a guiding principle behind all aesthetic decisions a bride and groom will make. Choosing a wedding style can be a daunting commitment to make. With so many variations choose from, how will a wedding couple choose? Wedding couples shouldn’t check their wedding style at the door on their wedding day. Who says you can’t bring your style to a wedding day? No one. If there is ever a day to personalize an event, this is it.

We have hosted hundreds of weddings here at The Magnolia Venue. From earthy to edgy and from moody to ethereal, we have seen a plethora of wedding styles. We love them all. Seriously, there is not a wrong choice!

A wedding style doesn’t need to be a challenge at all. Many of our wedding couples already know their wedding style. Now, they need to apply it. This blog post is to help all of the couples still planning their wedding. We chose some popular wedding style ideas to get you into the planning mood.

Earthy Wedding Style

Bring mother nature to your wedding! If you have ever wanted to embrace natural beauty, then an earthy wedding theme is for you. Hang whimsical florals from large centerpieces or incorporate gemstones into your reception decorations. Are you thinking smaller? Bud vases and succulents are perfect alternatives. The best part? This is the best wedding theme to wear that flower crown you have always wanted to wear.

Deep and passionate are the words that come to mind when we think of a moody wedding style. This is also the perfect style to change up the color of a wedding dress or groom suit. How about a black wedding dress, or a burgundy suit? A deep color palette full of burgundy and plum tones is excellent for this theme. Accent those colors with mixed metals for the ultra moody feel.


Ethereal Wedding Style

Do you like the light and airy feel? Then an ethereal wedding style is definitely for you. Think about using bright punches of color throughout your design, such as elements like table runners, streamers, floral arrangements, and mismatched chairs. Pair those bright elements with a more neutral pallet for a soft feel.

Current. Modern. Contemporary. Fresh and anything trending is the epitome of the chic wedding style. A minimalist wedding dress, clean lines, and simple, fresh greenery are just a few decor items that will make your wedding day feel like a retreat.

Offbeat couple? Alternative couple? We say, buck tradition! Why not roll with a cool, moody color palette? How about unique and creative floral installations? If the “been-there-done-that” wedding décor, then bush the boundaries! The edgy wedding style might be right in your wheelhouse.


Rustic Wedding Style

Are you looking for a simple and homespun wedding style? String lights, mason jars, twine, lace, and wood-inspired decor are items a wedding couple can use to achieve this look. This theme also works well for the DIY bride at heart. Consider our intimate mountain wedding venue for a rustic wedding style.

Covered Patio

We see most of our couples utilize the covered patio space for cocktail hour following their ceremony. It’s a great spot to set up cocktail tables, or even beautiful lounge furniture to give your guest a relaxing place to hang between your ceremony and reception. The other great thing about this covered space is that it gives our couples an additional backup rain plan for smaller groups!
