We all have different personal styles and some of us are traditional, some trendy and others more bold. While we love seeing a bride's personal style shine through her wedding regardless of its theme, there's something really romantic about a timeless wedding. We're sharing 5 simple ways to have a timeless wedding in an Allure Bridal Gown. We've partnered with Allure Bridals to bring you this post.
Choose a venue with some history
With over 230 years of history to these walls, the
Mission San Juan Capistrano is the perfect place for a romantic elopement. Located in South Orange County, it is the perfect place to go to relax and breathe in fresh air surrounded by indigenous blooms and learn about some of California’s most fascinating history.
It's a must if you're local to stop by to take in all of the impressive architecture, glorious gardens and the reflecting pond. It's really a photographer's dream with so many amazing backdrops and regardless of the time of day, you're sure to find even light somewhere on the property. Mission San Juan Capistrano is open daily from 9-5 and only closes on major holidays.
Choose romantic florals
Megan Wise, the talent behind the floral company Finding Flora designed a loose yet lush bouquet of muted summer blooms that brings just enough color to match the gorgeous scenery of the Mission San Juan. She also hand dyed the silk ribbon that was loosely tied around the bouquet which accentuated the earthy tones around the venue creating an oh-so-romantic bridal bouquet.
Use a muted color palette
Mallory Dawn Photography perfectly captured the elegance of the colonial architecture and this beautiful couple in timeless film images that the couple will cherish forever. The hand-lettered calligraphy delicately written by Kaylyn of Pirouette Paper brings an ethereal feel and the hand-drawn illustration of the venue showcases the historical significance of this location to the guests.
The exclusive use of film photography brings out a soft color palette, a slight grain and gorgeous natural light in Mallory’s timeless images.
Choose a timeless gown
This Allure Bridals gown Style 9260 is sure to stand the test of time. Constructed of lace and English net, it flaunts a romantic scalloped lace that edges the neckline and an elegant sheer illusion panel accents the back. This graceful yet elegant gown would be welcomed in any church and satisfy the most discerning bride.
Stick to a classic black tux
Every girl loves a sharp dressed man. That has not changed since the inception of that quote and we're certain it's not changing anytime soon, if ever. If you want a timeless wedding, choose a well-fit black tuxedo for your groom. The classic bow tie and white shirt will look as good today as it will 20 years from now.
With a stunning bouquet, delicate calligraphy, the perfect backdrop, and a stunning couple this shoot is as timeless and everlasting as the gorgeous Mission San Juan.
