Happy greetings to all our Lots of Love Readers!
Paris is hailed as the city of love. No wonder, it is one of the most visited places on the planet. Lovers and single people alike flock and enjoy everything that it has to offer - its romantic sights, sounds, food and people.
If your dream destination wedding in France is not on the table, you can bring France to where you are. With some research, planning and advice from a competent and experienced wedding coordinator, you can put together a memorable French inspired wedding.
Here are several French inspired wedding elements to complete your wedding repertoire:
Sweet scented wedding invitation and stationery with French inscriptions.
The boho chic bride with tulle and lace wedding dress and veil
Glammed-up bridesmaids in sequinned dresses
A warm welcome sign at the wedding reception.
Identically dressed flower girls throwing petals on the path leading to the altar
All white wedding canopy adorned with a chandelier
Floral centerpieces inspired by French scents and perfumes
A centerpiece paying homage to the Eiffel tower
Serve fruit and cheese plates for your guests' indulgence
Treat guests with warm chocolate drink
Monochromatic table setting with candelabras, flowers and candle accents
An outdoor garden wedding reception
Ask guests to tuck in their wedding messages and wishes on an Eiffel tower card holder.
A French wedding is never complete without a champagne tower.
In true French tradition, the ball opens with the dance of the bride and her father.
Another French tradition is making lots of noise when welcoming the newlyweds at the wedding reception or sending them off to their honeymoon.
Thus the tying of tin cans at the back of the bridal car, traditionally to lead guests to the venue of the wedding party.
A picturesque wedding cake
You can go all out and have a croquembouche for a wedding cake. These are buns filled with custard and held together by toffee forming a cylindrical or pyramid shape.
For souvenir, there is nothing more French than a miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower.
You may also stay true with tradition and give away sugar coated almonds.
