Ballet-inspired Wedding Details

It seems the world of ballet has a lot in common with the world of weddings. Soft, romantic details like tulle, silk ribbons and classic blooms can be found just as easily at a performance of Swan Lake as a they can at a wedding ceremony. In addition to these little details, one of the wedding industry’s favorite colors of the past few years is borrowed straight from ballet style – that’s right, blush pink! This rosy hue has been popping up in wedding decor and trends for years and it is easy to see why. It pairs beautifully with gold and green (among other colors) and photographs beautifully. Below, find some of our favorite ballet-inspired wedding details!

Wilderness Ridge is offering a new wedding special for Friday dates booked in 2019: Receive up to $1,000* off your final bill when you book your wedding reception for a 2019 Friday date. *Discount is based on final guest count, due 7 business days prior to the wedding. Limited time offer. Not applicable for weddings already booked. Excludes dates in December 2019.

Isabel Reichel, Social Sales Manager at Wilderness Ridge, states, “We are seeing an increase in popularity for Friday weddings because they allow you to remain within your original timeline and be a trendsetter at the same time. Since Fridays are non-traditional, you can follow suit and switch things up – maybe do a cocktail reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres paired with action stations, and a romantic ceremony at sunset. Not to mention, our 2019 Friday wedding special will also make it more affordable.”

All Buttoned Up

One of the bridal style trends we’re always excited about is dress embellishments. These details can add limitless options for a bride to put a little extra personal style into her wedding day look. At this year’s New York Bridal Fashion week we saw lots of exciting embellishment trends, from lace appliqués to feathers and everything in between. One of our favorites this year (and always!) is buttons. From boho to elegant, this beautiful trend can dress up any style gown.
