Trends come and go each year, but the classic white wedding stands the test of time. With a modern twist and fresh inspiration, this look will stay beautiful from season to season. It’s the perfect wedding for a couple that prefers timeless elements and who aren’t too bothered by trends and fads. The beauty of this theme is that it can be translated into each of the seasons and almost any setting, but it’s particularly fetching against the soft white setting at Groenrivier.
Get the look
A lush all-white floral runner was paired with beautiful crisp white linen napkins that complemented the white candles and white-toned venue. The raw wood table top really helps the runner pop! Elegant glassware and armless ghost chairs keep the focus on the florals and beautiful stationery whilst adding another layer of texture and design. Gold elements like the candle holders, cutlery and foiled stationery elevates the tablescape to a modern version of the classic white wedding.
If you do not like different variations of the colour white, stick to one type of flower, but remember that garden roses and hydrangeas are not cheap options. It’s easy to hire gold accents like cutlery, or even incorporate foiling into your stationery to add another layer of design without making your tablescape too busy.
