Wedding Planning Tips A La Audrey
Are you stuck in a rut of what kind of wedding you want to have? Look to your favorite celebrities, role models, or historical figures for inspiration. Audrey Hepburn is an icon of style, poise, and youthful fun. Her timeless style, graceful charm, and integrity will give your wedding a personal touch. Here are three wedding planning tips a la Audrey.
Part 1: Simple With A Statement
Audrey is iconic for her clean, sleek, and simple sense of style. Her simple elegance was curated. She always chose one statement piece or element such as a chunky necklace, hairpiece, or embroidery pattern. She never wore busy, over the top clothing or accessories, which made her grace and personality shine through.
- Wedding Planning Tip #1 : You do not have to go over the top to make your wedding attire or decor memorable. With too much going on you can easily become overwhelmed with stuff. It is more important to choose attire and decor that is meaningful to you and reflects your personal style. Choosing a simple gown will draw people’s eyes up to your beaming wedding day face. Creating simple wedding decor will allow people to focus on personal connection and the emotions of the day.
Part 2: Humanitarianism
After nearly starving to death in WWII as a child living in Europe Audrey was committed to Humanitarian Aid, specifically working for UNICEF. Wedding gifts are customary, however who’s to say you cannot switch it up a la Audrey Hepburn? If you already have what you need to begin your lives together, a good idea may be to donate to a charity. Is there a charity that has a soft spot in your hearts? Requests donations to that charity instead of wedding gifts.
- Wedding Planning Tip #2: You do not need to follow what has traditionally been done. The unconventional touches you add to your wedding day can create a legacy and memories that will last a lifetime. What better way to start your married life together focused on love and charity?
- Here are some beautiful charity donation ideas for your wedding.
Part 3: Hobbies
Though Audrey Hepburn is most well known for her acting, her true dream and hobby was to be a professional ballerina. Sometimes the activities that bring us the most joy are our hobbies. Do you like baseball? You could have a baseball themed wedding reception. Are you a movie buff? Choose your favorite films and theme your wedding around that.
- Wedding Planning Tip #3: Add elements of your hobby to your wedding. It will make it easier to plan your wedding; and make it more fun. No rules apply on your wedding day. There is no need to have a black tie wedding if your fiance and you are more of a jeans and a t-shirt kind of couple. By incorporating elements you love on your special day you both will be more relaxed and therefore able to completely enjoy your wedding day.
