Whispering White | White wedding ideas
Are you dreaming of a white wedding? Or perhaps even shades of white and gorgeous neutral tones?
I was looking at some wedding photos from the 1980s and 1990s the other day as I was flicking through some old magazines. Besides the big fuzzy hair and giant shoulder pads, one thing that stood out to me was the fact that almost every bride wore a wedding dress in a cool stark white. It’s great that bridal gowns are have since evolved to a breathtakingly wide range of shades of white to complement a range of different skin tones. Crisp white, diamond white, silk white, antique white, ivory, antique ivory, cream, champagne… the list goes on.

Regardless of the shade of white you’ve fallen in love with, I love a white wedding colour palette and there are so many beautiful white wedding ideas out there to choose from.
White is simple, crisp, clean and timeless. Endlessly inspiring and a beautiful neutral foundation for both day time or evening nuptials.
If you’re looking to create a vintage inspired theme, add some rustic charm by focusing on texture and the little details. Blend warm whites with wood tones or gold or silver as accent colours.
