Paris, France

Paris, a city famous for its romance, seems like a perfect starting point for an inspiration board! Because of its "City of Lights" nickname, I decided to go with a silver and gold color scheme. A fleur de lis theme is adds another touch of Parisian influence.


A wedding inspired by Paris would of course have a croquembouche for the wedding cake. Champagne would be front and center at the reception. Fleur de lis bottle stoppers are the perfect favor and can be used to decorate each place setting. Votive candle holders and invitations adorned with a fleur de lis add a bit more depth to a subtle fleur de lis theme.


The overall feel of this wedding is rich, classic, timeless elegance, with a bit of a nod to Paris.
