10 Timeless Wedding Ideas that Will Never Go Out of Style

Here’s how to make sure you always look back on your wedding photos fondly (and without being embarrassed about your hairstyle). 

1. A Classic Chignon Hairstyle

Speaking of hairstyles you won’t regret, a classic chignon never goes out of style. Not only does it look good on everyone, but its versatility also lends itself perfectly to a beach wedding as well as a boho outdoor ceremony. Plus, if it was good enough for Meghan Markle, it’s good enough for us!

2. A White Dress

When it comes to wedding dress colors, white stands the test of time and remains a classic, elegant choice that you definitely won’t regret later down the line. While colored gowns go in and out of style, a traditional, white A-line silhouette transcends decades.

3. Matching Bridesmaid Dresses

If you look at any bridal magazine or wedding blog, you can see that mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses are having a major moment. Whether it’s different variations of the same colored dress or completely different dresses and colors altogether, a lot of brides are switching things up and veering away from traditional matching bridesmaid gowns. While we love this trend just as much as the next wedding obsessed girl, if you’re looking to keep things timeless, you can’t go wrong with matching bridesmaid gowns. Trust us, when you’re looking back on your photos in 20 years, you’ll thank us that you kept things cohesive.

4. Simple Invitations

There’s no denying that crisp, clean invitations with striking typography are the perfect way to set the tone for your wedding. 

5. A Muted Bouquet

Pages could be written about our love affair for a striking, bold bouquet filled with autumn favorites like deep reds, burgundys and darks greens. While this nature-inspired trend is all rage at the moment, in ten years you might look back and wish you had opted for a classic bouquet instead. If you’re on the fence, opt for the latter and go with a soft bouquet of pink and white roses to really exemplify the classic romance that we all love so much.

6. Floral Centerpieces 

We’ve seen some pretty out-there centerpieces (think: fish aquariums and paper doves), but a traditional vase filled with classic flowers, like roses and hydrangeas, always seems to keep us coming back for more. 

7. The Post-Vow Toss

If you’ve ever taken a peek at any wedding fail videos, you know that the #1 mishap comes from that one wedding guest that threw rice a little too hard as the couple was exiting the church. Whether it’s rice or an ill-timed confetti moment that ended up with the bride peeling confetti paper off of her lipgloss, the post-vow toss is best left to a handful of romantic flower petals instead. Plus, there’s no denying that petals make for a much more romantic photo than rice does.

8. A Black Tux

If you’ve ever taken a look at your husband-to-be’s high school prom photos and wondered why he ever chose to wear that red tux or opted for a checkered suit instead of something a little more subdued, then save yourself the headache and have him go for a classic black tux on your wedding day. After all, a fitted black tux always looks sharp and your groom won’t look back in 20 years wondering what was he thinking.

9.  A Long Veil

A long, sweeping veil is the epitome of breathtaking. There’s a reason this tried and true wedding accessory has survived through the decades— it’s the perfect balance of whimsical and romantic to really offset your wedding gown and play into the romance of the day.

10. Champagne Tower

While we secretly love a good champagne tower for the amazing Instagram moment in provides, we also know that this classic favorite is the best way to make cocktail hour that much more exciting at your wedding. While other bar moments come and go, a champagne tower is forever (or at least until the bubbly runs out).

We GOT Your Wedding Theme

It’s wedding season! But it’s also the saddest time of the year right now. Why, you ask? Game of Thrones is over for the season has officially begun. We feel your heartbreak. No more of the beautiful Jon Snow or the even more beautiful clothes that Daenerys garbs (can that please be the next big fashion trend?!) until next year. Maybe rewatching the seasons or finally reading the books can fill your time until April (can it be April already) but we have the best solution to curb your GOT hunger. A GOT themed wedding. Now before you think we are crazy, imagine the gold details, the Khaleesi hairstyles and romantic wedding pictures in the snow. This can be done so tastefully that your guests might not even know that your wedding was anything but gorgeous themed! So let wedding planning fill the void of our closest friends who we miss on this side of the wall. And here’s to hoping the groom looks a little like Jon Snow.
