Planning an elegant wedding can be a glamorous experience!

You can call upon old Hollywood weddings, clean lines and metallics for inspiration. Elegance is found in simplicity with slightly over the top accents. However, there are a few accents that are essential to an elegant wedding. Planning your elegant wedding can be simple with these top wedding accent picks!

Taper candles

Taper candles are the ultimate elegant candle. They fit into a variety of settings and add height to tablescapes. Choosing crisp white candles add a classic elegance to your settings. While dark taper candles are trending, a traditional white or ivory taper candle stays the classic choice for elegance.

Metallic pieces

Adding metallic vases, candle holders and napkin rings to your wedding reception adds the pop of color and balance to any color scheme you have picked for your elegant wedding. Using metallic accents such as gold or silver gives your wedding a modern twist on traditional elegance.

Crisp linens

Using bright, plain table linens gives a solid backdrop to your centerpieces and allows their elegance to shine through. With your linens, less is more. If you choose a patterned or embellished table cloth or runner, you run the risk of your tablescape becoming busy and less than elegant.

Glass vases

If you don’t want to add too much of a flair with a lot of metallics, traditional glass cylinder vases are perfect for an elegant wedding. Using crystal clear glass allows your other accents and florals to shine without creating a look that is too over the top.

Bright florals

Since elegant weddings are about clean backdrops and pops of color, your florals are the perfect place to add a pop of color. Choose brightly colored flowers and lots of greenery to create an elegant centerpiece, or bouquet that will be the star of the wedding. Make sure to choose seasonal blooms to best accent the season of your nuptials.

Charger plates

Charger plates dress up dinner plates without adding clutter to your tablescape. Coordinate your metallics with a glass or acrylic charger plate that will add that wow factor your guests will appreciate. An elegant wedding has a pop of glamour on the tablescape, and choosing the perfect charger plate is the simplest way to add that glamour.

Rose Petals

Adding rose petals to tablescapes, aisles and dessert tables adds a touch of romance to your wedding decor. Depending on your budget you can use fresh or silk rose petals throughout you wedding to add elegance.

There are many ways to create an elegant wedding. No matter what classic pieces you add, you will surely create an elegant wedding that your guests will never forget.
