When most people hear the word ‘chic’ used alongside a wedding, they simply assume ‘classy’ and ‘elegant’ hold no potency anymore, but we beg to differ. When it comes to having a chic wedding, the secret is to take your regular wedding, swap out the traditions that you don’t value or understand and replace them with those you do. We give some examples of changes that you can put in place at your wedding in the few paragraphs below.



  • Your Wedding Dress

For the non-white option, you can wear a striped wedding dress or floral one; the idea is yours to play with. Or how about a white gown decorated with clean lines and minimalist design?


  • Your Bridal Party

If you don’t want bridesmaids or a chief bridesmaid at your wedding, that’s fine. But if you’re someone with many friends, outfitting them with various dresses is a workaround and still very chic. Have everyone pick styles and designs that fit them. The result will be something playful, elegant, and classy.


  • Use Greenery

This is one way to have a literal fresh reception. Centerpieces with an overflow of greenery and arrangements of vines, leaves, and other lush green foliage alongside a bouquet free of blooms are a great way to go contemporary.


  • Your Catering

Quality treats and hors d’oeuvres, seasonal/locally sourced foods, and perfect bites at the cocktail hour are the way to go here. Late-night snacks are also in theme for a chic wedding-we recommend a late-night pizza bar?
