Plato once said that beauty of style, harmony, grace and good rhythm
depend on simplicity. Ultimately, less is more. Sometimes, however, it
takes a lot of effort to look like you haven’t put in any effort at all.
Which is why we have put together our favourite ‘less is more’ styling
concepts – ideas in neutrals that are elegant, not boring.
White is crisp, timeless and looks fabulous when teamed with earthy
woods, taupes and…more white! Understated sophistication is a peony
bouquet, a freshly picked flower placed in a rustic glass and a loosely
folded napkin on white tablecloth.
Simple details will keep your styling interesting and without a frenzy of colour the beautiful details are what guests will notice. A place card handwritten with love will not be overlooked and a succulent plant is a bomboniere gift that complements the natural, effortless styling. In a fast-moving world colour palettes come and go but style lasts forever.

complementary flowers. The little flowers look simply stunning amongst a
bridal bouquet of spring flowers and show off their beauty in shades of

Bridal bouquets. They're great. In fact, they're absolutely gorgeous and we can't get enough of them. BUT did you know you can do a lot more with flowers than just bouquets and centrepieces. Yep, that's right. Get your bridal notebook handy (or your finger ready to click straight to your Pinterest board) because we have some gorgeous, unique and creative flower decor ideas for you!
Create a secret garden wonderland with these magical flower garland chair covers, your furniture will become part of nature. Use your imagination (or Pinterest) to discover creative new ways to display flowers. For example, use fishing line or yarn to hang mason jars and test tubes filled with beautiful flowers amongst trees or from beams at your ceremony and reception.
We think this rose chandelier is stunning - use ribbon to hang fresh roses in a cluster. They are soft, feminine and very, very pretty. Let each guest take a rose home as a sweet reminder of the evening. If you're the type of bride who really doesn't want to hold a bouquet (too many guests to hug, too many conversations full of hand gestures to be had!) then ask your florist to create a floral boa that can hang around your neck. A very chic and practical alternative to the classic bouquet.

This extraordinary foliage really puts the “d” in dreamy. Growing wildly in seas of feathery foliage, this grass looks sublime swaying in the air, these chameleonic species lend a softly sculptural element to wedding styling. It’s the touch of luxe that your nuptials need, standing at up to 5 feet tall in plumes of white or pink hues. For the perfect ceremonial drama create an incredible backdrop of pampas grass plumes, arranged in larger than life fan formations, an overhead canopy, an enclosed circle or as giant clusters spilling from urns.
The feathery plumes are lush and flashy so they don’t need many other flowers to compliment the,. However, they do look stunningly striking against green foliage for your centrepieces and bouquets. You can also use it to decorate your wedding arch or table, venue entrance, or in any other creative way. Used sparingly or not, pampas grass will give your wedding the lush luxe look that will have your guests speaking for years to come.

Pop princess Madonna might not be a fan of them – but we sure are, alongside with just about every bride-to-be. Hydrangeas are the perfect classical summer flower and a quite popular wedding day bloom. Not only are the fluffy flowers perfect for creating a romantic, garden vibe, but they also come in tons of colours from bright white and cream to pale blue and antique green to nearly every shade of pink. A truly versatile flower, they stand out bunched on their own or look absolutely fantastic mixed with other blooms.
A dramatic focal point is the perfect accessory to your vow exchange, like this gorgeous wooden arbour that’s decorated in foliage and white hydrangeas.
