Crystal and Clear Wedding Theme
Wow, I read on Monday that we have 24 Mondays left before Christmas. How did this happen and all though it, we had lockdown? For many people, this has been the worst month in their lives – trying to keep their business afloat and just trying to feed their families. I, however, do believe that even though this horrible time, brides are still dreaming about their big day!
However, I do believe that by the end of this year COVID will not rule our lives anymore. As it is the lockdown rules are busy changing and brides can start thinking about their weddings again – even though it will have to be smaller and more intimate weddings.
To cheer us all up I decided to start with researching the wedding trends for 2021 and one of my favorites is the Crystal and Clear Wedding Trend.
What do I mean when I say Crystal and Clear? Are we talking about glitter and shine? Are we talking about diamonds and crystals? I would say that you can interpret this theme in two ways. You can go for the Diamond wedding décor which is just shimmer and shine OR you can go for the Clear and Modern Crystal look which I am going to explain to you in this blog.
The Crystal and Clear look and theme that we will discuss are modern, clear and with the use of ultra-hip monochromatic (from the wintriest white to sultry ivories), adding to that glass, crystal as well as quartz crystals for the bride that wants a little bit of shine but would love to have a modern look and feel.
Let’s look at how we can pull the theme through
Clear wedding invitations are the new, fun way to dress up your invitations in a modern yet classy way. Made on a clear Perspex with the beautifully handwritten calligraphy or lavish letterpress be the only decoration.
For this type of look and feel I would suggest you go for a soft tulle and lace dress that will bring in the feeling of softness, fastness, and a touch of glitter. A fantastic idea would be to make use of Swarovski crystals dotted all over your dress. Add to it a see-through Cinderella shoe that offers a hint of sparkle from beneath your wedding dress, a tulle see-through garter with diamond embellishment and you already went a whole way in bringing the theme through. Can you imagine how a beautiful geo crystal tiara will look with matching geo crystal jewelry… Frozen’s Elsa steps away … here comes the bride.
Bridesmaid and accessories
Go all the way out of the box…. For a long time, white was a colour only worn by brides, but no longer – Just look at the beautiful picture these bridesmaids make next to the bride. Add a little bit of crystal and clear accessories and there you go.
What flowers to use with this magnificent theme?
Choose traditions blooms like roses, carnations, orchards, etc, and give them a sparkling center with Swarovski- studded pins and picks. Add to that some baby’s breath and you have a winner.
Use and acrylic arch to add sophistication and sparkle to your wedding. Make use of clear ghost chairs to complete the look. Glam up the look with lots of white flowers.
Wedding table décor
We would suggest you go for a very plain white tablecloth if you do not have a Perspex table. With that, you need to use ghost chairs. Choose simple white crockery and add a layer of luxury – as well as the crystal look – to place setting with clear, crystal cut glass and plain clear underplates.
To take the theme further you can place a quartz gift on top of the serviette and plate.
A classic plain white cake on a crystal cake stand will be the best. Try and keep the cake plain and simple and let the crystal cake stand make the statement.
Have you ever thought about a having a huge ice sculpture on your wedding as one of the focal points? Ice sculptures add an element of drama – and fun – to your wedding reception and it will work very well with the crystal and clear wedding trend.
