Wedding Planning | Subtle Statement

No one likes the idea of having a generic wedding. Throughout history, people have long been using events like this to make a statement, and this is only getting more common in the modern world. With access to affordable venues, decorations, and clothing, it’s easier than ever before to pay for this event, though the host of options can often leave people choosing between something traditional or a wedding which is totally different. Of course, a lot of people don’t want to go down either extreme. Instead, this post will be showing you how to make a subtle statement on your big day, giving you the chance to create something unique without making it feel strange*.
Colours
The clothing people wear for weddings is different in cultures across the world, but white, blue, and grey are the most common in the western world. Most men will wear a simple suit, often with two or three pieces, and the colours will almost always be the same. The same can be said for dresses, with many brides wearing white. Options like red suits and turquoise bridesmaid dresses can make a real statement on your wedding day, without being too different or looking out of place. Likewise, though, you can also use flowers and accessories to make your wedding more vibrant, with many people choosing examples which mean something to them.

Styles
Throughout history, there have been a lot of different styles for formal clothing. Nowadays, most of the styles you can find are moderate and reserved, though a lot of the examples found in the past are far more exciting. Choosing to wear something vintage or retro can be a great idea at a wedding. Not only will this give you the chance to create a unique look, but it will also make older guests feel more at home. There are loads of great styles to choose from when you open the doors to the past, and this is well worth taking advantage of.

In The Evening
Most weddings consist of a service and dinner during the day, followed by a dance for guests to enjoy in the evening. This party is an excellent chance to make a statement with your clothing, with most people changing into something different for this part of the night. Not only does this give you the chance to embrace tradition during the wedding itself, but it can also make the evening fun a lot more comfortable. You can wear whatever you like to this, though most people will stick with formal attire. You could even consider asking some of your guests to coordinate with you for this part of the big day.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to take on the challenge of making a subtle statement at your wedding. Most people won’t want to do anything too outlandish, though you will certainly want to leave your mark, and this can take some creativity if you’re going to realise your ambitions.
