French romance. It often doesn’t get more beautiful than that for a wedding theme and it’s one that is a universally chic choice that will stand the test of time. Think dreamy and ethereal colours and textures of creams, pinks, French greys and Versailles style gilding.
Elegant draping and romantic fairylights help to set the scene, as well as candelabras, blush florals and chic Chiavari or Hannah Jane chairs.
Of course French food and drinks are key. Think an array of sweet treats like macaroons, mini cookies and pink champagne too.

Getting the colour palette right, will really help to set off this stunningly romantic wedding theme. So consider carefully choices such as pinks, blush, creams, gilding, French grey and lavender. Be creative with how you use these fabulous colours. Think about having them in your flowers, bouquets and bridesmaids dresses as well as the general décor.
Channel the dreamy French romantic feeling with lots of draping and fairy lights. Think about using draping on entrances, from ceilings and on chairs to really ramp up the look. Intersperse with romantic fairylights, curtain lights and plenty of candles in varying sizes. Also use pin lighting, gobo lighting and coloured lighting to great effect.
Soft colours and a touch of gilding are key for this look. So consider having floral centrepieces, tall candelabras and lots of candles. Think lanterns filled with florals, gilded glassware, antique style menus and beautiful Hannah Jane or Chiavari Chairs to complete the look.
Food and drinks
When it comes to food and drinks, the French are masters, so why not incorporate it into your wedding day? Think Macaroons, croquembouche towers, elegant French fancies and lots of sweet treats, like delicately iced sugar cookies. And don’t forget the pretty pink champagne in antique style glassware with non-alcoholic versions on offer too.
