If you’re a downtown girl, we’ve got some ideas that will make you swoon. A big city is rife with endless location options to host your wedding, but how can you elevate asphalt and metal? That’s where we come in.
Depending on your taste, a city wedding can take shape in multiple ways. There’s the classic grand ballroom, with an air of elegance and sophistication. There’s the modern rooftop wedding, filled with endless views. And, of course, a loft or gallery wedding for some contemporary, urban industrial vibes. And don’t forget restaurant receptions, which have a charm all their own.
But no matter what you choose for a venue, there are always a few common elements that weave in a sense of city style. Silver tones give off a sleek vibe reminiscent of a city’s steel architecture, while gilded accents create an aura of uptown city glamour. And jet black always promises an urban feel.
Since cities often have a modern heart, you also can’t go wrong with any contemporary accents, such as acrylic chairs or geometric candle holders. We also love a good art backdrop like an abstract canvas to boldly dress up a ceremony, sweetheart table, or lounge area. Set a contemporary tone in all your paper goods with a simple font and minimalist aesthetic.
But it’s not all in the decor—don’t forget your bridal party! Black or metallic dresses are a sure way to give them a city girl look. If you’re having a winter wedding, pair them with some faux fur stoles or leather jackets to take it to the next level. As for the soon-to-be newlyweds, we love fit and flare dresses or classic black-and-white tuxes for a city wedding.
These slick, chic ideas will be sure to set your city girl heart on fire.
