10 Ideas to Steal from Celebrity Brides

We’ve gotta admit it: we love celebrity weddings. The budgets are high, the paparazzi is waiting, and the couture gowns never dissappoint. As with many things in the pop culture world (fashion, interiors, baby names) weddings follow celebrity trends and are inspired by the creatives behind them.

We gathered our favorite ideas from celebrity weddings for you to steal.

Check them out:

 

1. Mix and Match Your Bridesmaids Expertly

Take a tip from Ashley Tisdale when she married musician Christopher French in September of 2014.  When doing the good ol’ mix and match with your bridesmaids’ dresses, choose dresses in the same length in similar styles (flowing, structured, etc.) Then be sure to choose a palette that highlights and compliments your overall wedding style. We LOVE Ashley’s dramatic use of blushes, blues, taupe, and lilacs. They remind us of a Midsummer Night’s Dream…. swoon!

2. Keep In Mind Your Surroundings

Kate Bosworth’s Montana Ranch wedding to filmmaker Michael Polish was a total dream. No wonder it graced the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings. (*Editor’s Note: The editors of Now Kiss the Bride have actually vacationed at The Ranch at Rock Creek and we can confirm it’s basically a peaceful heaven on earth.) One of the reasons Bosworth’s wedding seemed so perfect and effortless is because she called upon the Ranch’s rustic Montana landscape to inspire the decor and design. Too often, we see brides try to force a style on their venue space that doesn’t quite fit. The best wedding decor blends right into the natural environment and looks like a fairytale.

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Make a Bridal Fashion Statement

Talk about nailing it. Olivia Palermo absolutely floored us when she married Johannes Huebl in June of 2014 in an unexpected three-piece ensemble. Remember- just because it’s your wedding day doesn’t mean you have to turn into a cupcake for twenty-four hours. That’s so not you! If you’re anything like Olivia, you are not every basic girl in a strapless ball gown… you’re a fashionista just like every other day of your fabulous life! It is vital to remember this when choosing your wedding dress. We are completely obsessed with Olivia Palermo’s Carolina Herrera wedding get-up: complete with cream sweater, white shorts, and full tulle skirt. Let the OOT(W)D creativity begin!

4. Keep Florals Loose with Added Greenery

Lauren Conrad got it right when she married William Tell in September of 2014 with loose, luscious florals. The varied white and blush pink blooms of dahlias, peonies, and garden roses were mixed in with loose ferns and other greens. Not only did Conrad’s floral choices keep things romantic, but also unfussy. A luxurious yet understated vibe is must for celebrity weddings.

5. Make Your Own Traditions

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott mixed things up for their 2006 wedding. Instead of the usual ceremony and reception, they opted for a private just-the-two-of-us ceremony to be celebrated in a reception later by family and friends. The couple shared a beautiful video of their private vows on a screen at the reception for all to enjoy. We love the idea of doing your big day your way and think Spelling chose a very tasteful way to honor her preferences while still sharing the love.

6. Bring the Outdoors In

Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s 2009 wedding in Malibu, California is a perfect example of one of our favorite celebrity wedding trends: bringing the outdoors inside. The couple filled their wedding tent with dozens of magnolia trees filled with white roses. We love the idea of creating a “planted” environment using trees and other plants to fill vertical space and add another dimension to the party. Especially if you are getting married indoors or in a ballroom, plant life is a great way to soften up any space!

8. Remember to Be You!

Solange Knowles’ wedding to video director Alan Ferguson was perfectly tailored to fit the couple’s taste and ultra-hip style. From her fabulous ivory jumpsuit (and cape!) to their infamous entrance on a pair of white bicycles, the couple used every opportunity to express themselves and their love when planning their big day. Try to keep in mind your own interests and vibe when making decisions and remember to add personal details to enhance the guest experience.

9. Add Romance with Lighting

We’ve always been a huge fan of suspended lighting, and Hillary Duff’s 2009 wedding to Mike Comrie is the perfect example of using glamorous pendant lighting to create a romantic mood inside your wedding tent. Duff chose a beautiful array of hanging clear glass pendants and had them installed right above standing height to really set the mood. Lighting is more important to an event than you might think, so keep it in mind when visualizing your big day.

10. Don’t Forget Your Getaway Car!

For Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s 2014 Lake Como wedding, they truly thought of every single detail… including decorating their stunning vintage getaway vehicle! Decked out with magnolia leaves and beautiful silk ribbon, the couple chose to add a nod to their Italian locale by including the phrase “oggi sposi” or “just married.” We love the idea of classing-up the traditional tin can fiasco that usually gets tied to the bumper of a newly married couple’s exit vehicle. Think of your overall wedding decor and bring it into the little details that are often overlooked or under valued.
