1. Pastel flowers
The softly romantic pastel wedding theme is set with lavender sky blue and blush pink blooms that evoke the colors of Provence. Combine with honey shades and sage to evoke a Provencal scene.
2. Elegant tablescapes
The French-chic look will be enhanced by elegantly setting tables that feature vintage elements. This will transport guests to vineyards and fields of lavender in Provence. Antique-style china (bonus points for authentic pieces purchased from a local brocante); candelabras; linen napkins and stationery with calligraphy and gold leaf.
3. French sweet treats
French people love sweets. Talk to your caterer and ask them about adding some of these gourmet treats into your menu. The desserts should look as delicious as they taste!
4. Chic Fashion
Select outfits with a natural look that complements the floral and natural background of your event. For example a gown flowing in floral detail hairstyles and jewelry to enhance natural beauty and natural hair.
