When I think of the iconic Blue Box, romance and true love instantly come to mind. For over 175 years, Tiffany & Co has maintained its stance as being a symbol of rare and timeless beauty. The company continues to stand out amongst other fashion brands year after year due to its focus on simplistic style and sophistication, so without a doubt, when it comes to taking inspiration for your wedding decor there is no better place to start than Tiffany’s.

When it comes to decor, a minimalistic colour scheme will be key. Opt for whites, ivories, golds and silvers with fresh florals and foliage. Be sparing and subtle with the use of the classic Tiffany blue but incorporate this tone into the finer details, such as your favours and place cards. Select stunning Louis XVI style chairs to add further dimension to the decor along with strategic spot lighting and candles to create a romantic ambience. Finally do not forget to pay particular attention to your tableware dressing with the cutlery, crockery and glassware (click here for tableware dressing tips).
FOOD & BEVERAGE:
To make the food and beverage stand out remember presentation and service is essential. From the moment the guests arrive to the moment they leave, you want them to be talking about the food. Serve champagne on arrival along with canapés on large silver platters and have your catering team floating through guests instead of being positioned behind a buffet station for a more personal service. For the main meal, opt for a three-course menu all served to the table. If you want to spoil your guests further why not have a fruity-infused sorbet served either before of after the main course as a palate cleanser. Whatever the menu, make sure to give your guests a silver service experience they will never forget.
Live musicians will be important to create a romantic ambience. Think string quartet during the drinks reception and a big band for the main event. Keep your DJ booth discreetly tucked away in the corner for when he or she take over at the end of the night. Avoid big screens and harsh LED lighting; instead opt for soft mood lighting and a clear gloss white dance floor to finish the look.
When it comes to stationery keep it clean and simple just like the brand. Use the sophisticated Tiffany & Co font along with the iconic shade of blue for your print materials, such as menus, place cards, table names and seating plans. This will help tie in your event details perfectly.
