Step one to creating a memorable design for a small wedding? Start with color! Rebel Ink Calligraphy used dramatic black for these white ink wedding invitations and menus, adding in gold and vellum details to give a subtle pop to the monochrome palette and modern brush lettering.

Red Asian Wedding Dress for a with Long Sleeves

The bride had a chance to try on multiple wedding dress styles, even with a smaller, intimate affair. She chose a traditional red long sleeve dress to showcase her Asian-American heritage – the beautiful style accented the hand painted Gracie wallpaper and Chinoiserie inspired details at the venue, the former Oak Cliff Masonic Lodge designed by Dallas architect Herbert M. Greene and converted into a private event venue with stunning style.

Florist Iam Styling USA used bold and glamorous red as the base for the flowers, creating an ombre effect with ivory and blush peonies, dried Italian ruscus, and deep crimson roses with burgundy scabiosa. The modern colorblocking effect on the bride’s bouquet was given a vintage touch with long blush silk ribbons.

How amazing is this setting for a small wedding ceremony! The beautiful ballroom feels just big enough for two, with the dazzling crystal chandeliers overhead. This talented wedding team showed off the best way to focus on the bridal couple in a larger event space, drawing the eye to the antique mantel ceremony backdrop with a colorful and whimsical flower garland in white, blush, and deep red. Dried grasses and white anthurium flowers added a structural touch to the dramatic flower decor, while deep blue taper candles in gold holders added to the warmth and elegance of the fireplace ceremony setting.

Even a small wedding needs a seating chart to direct guests to their places! This stunning hand lettered seating display uses white ink on black acrylic to guide guests and keep the timeline running smoothly. The more intimate the guest list, the more you can play with creative options for a seating chart!

To give even more ideas for wedding dress styles to wear for a smaller wedding or elopement, Michelle Phu Events and a&bé bridal shop styled a second stunning bride.
