Retro, Luxury Wedding + Bridal Style Inspo

A luxe, glamorous wedding day is made up of a few elements: love, vision, and thoughtful details. You've got the love, and today we're bringing your the ideas!

If you want your big day to be WOW, this marvelous luxury wedding reception editorial is packed with wedding planning inspiration. Shot at Shadowbrook, a stunning Georgian mansion event venue, it features not one but three separate wedding decor, color scheme, and wedding looks. Thanks to a wonderful vendor team (find the full list at the bottom), this amazing work includes some of our most spectacular statement bridal headpieces, jewelry, and veils.

Queen of Hearts

A bold crimson sets the tone of this dramatic interpretation of luxury wedding decor. Tall floral arrangements punctuated with crystal candelabras with long tapers sit on golden tables. As they sit, guests are greeted by spectacular place settings with cut-crystal glassware, metallic-rimmed white chargers, and deep-red menu cards.

Meanwhile, our couple's style is equally fabulous. Exuding the panache and class of James Bond, the groom is dressed in a classic tux. As for our fiery bride, her red lip and smokey eye call to mind the passion of flamenco, as do her sleek, chic low bun topped by a spectacular all-crystal headpiece from our Couture Collection. Adding just the right amount of sparkle is a pair of our large, vintage-inspired CZ drop earrings. Then there's her incredible Karen Sabag wedding gown—with its lace off-the-shoulder sleeves, a fitted bodice, and a stunning fitted skirt with a full over skirt and covered in ruffles, it's perfect for making an entrance!

Luxury wedding decor ideas: Go big with color, and layer it to give it depth and a luxe feel. Details are the magic here—those chargers brighten things up like a sorbet palette cleanser at an elegant, exclusive restaurant. The same perspective can be applied to your wedding look. A face-framing, crystal headpiece sparkles with every move you make and makes a majorly sumptuous statement.





Art Deco Chic

Gold and black bring elegance and Great Gatsby appeal to this big day's style. Gleaming golden chairs, gilded place settings, and glass conspire to take guests' breath away. Placed along the center of the family-style table, abundant flowers enhance the opulent feel while welcoming guests with warmth and romance. In this color palette, our bride's style hasn't changed, but in this new setting, it reads retro and regal. That's due in part to the pairing of her glittering headpiece and dreamy gown with one of our extra-long, lace-edged cathedral veils. It brings just the right amount of old-world style to her look.

Luxury wedding decor ideas: Play with proportion. The centerpieces on the reception table are long and low, and the lighting is bold. Metallics can be counted on to make a luxurious impression. One way to bring this into your wedding look is with a golden bridal headpiece and earrings instead of silver.









Emerald Empress


This wedding day blends modern and classic into something drop dead gorgeous. A floral installation of pampas grass and lush, neutral-colored flowers hangs above the white reception table like a beautiful cloud. Deep green velvet chairs invite guests to take a seat, while white-and-gold place settings enhance the overall light, bright feel.

Our bride has slipped into another Karen Sabag gown. Its sheer texture and flowing, figure-following silhouette would be right at home at a royal wedding! Her large, low-bun hairstyle is accented by one of our bridal crowns encrusted with crystals and pearls as well as eye-catching chandelier earrings.


Luxury wedding decor ideas: Opulence doesn't always have to mean deep colors and over-the-top abundance. Make a statement with the unexpected and bring a variety of textures, as with the velvet, metallic, and floral arrangements as shown here. To weave the same aesthetic into your wedding look, try introducing a mix of pearls and crystals into your bridal headpiece and jewelry. You can also wear a gorgeous, crystal-encrusted cathedral veil during your wedding ceremony to punctuate the moment and make hearts flutter!
