Are you a bride who is drawn toward European cities, old world inspiration, and luxe details? If so, your wedding planning search should begin with the words “Fine Art.” A fine art wedding is elegant and sophisticated, artistic and romantic, whimsical and graceful. Fine Art weddings are characterized by their thoughtful color palettes, lush florals, luxe fabrics, and feminine details.

Color Palette

For us, each fine art design begins with choosing the right colors. To preserve the natural, romantic feel that typifies fine art weddings, we often stick with neutrals and pastels. This palette most commonly includes whites, creams, golds, light pinks, warm grays, and pale blues. These colors will be the base for everything else in your wedding – your flowers, décor, venue, paper goods – everything! Bold pops of color or classic colors do have a place here, but it is important to create a soft foundation for your design. This soft, cohesive, and flowing color palette will set the tone for your romantic day.

Florals & Fabrics

Florals and fabrics are an essential aspect to creating a fine art wedding. Abundant flowers will make your wedding look and feel straight out of a garden fairytale. Florals play a major role in creating a feminine and organic design. Garden-inspired arrangements will leave you with a lovely, fragrant, and picturesque venue. Similarly, incorporating loose, flowing fabrics into your event will add to the ethereal feel to your fine art wedding. Consider picking a billowy dress or veil or lining your tables with light linens and raw silk fabrics. These luxe and feminine details will create the perfect setting for a night of dinner and dancing.


Now let’s talk details. When planning a fine art wedding, we like to focus on the finedetails. Pay special attention to those details that might be overlooked in a typical wedding. Below are a few ideas of elements we love to get you started on planning those small, yet timeless, details:

  • Gold flatware
  • Antique China
  • Handmade Paper with Silk Ribbon and Wax Seals
  • Taper Candles
  • Thoughtful Favors
  • Accent chairs
  • Film photography
  • Garden Inspired Florals

With the right combinations of colors, florals, and accents, we promise that your fine art design will leave you and your guests will be swooning over the romantic, unforgettable design.
