Styling inspiration: Ethereal elegance

Styling // by QB

The more sophisticated sister of rustic-chic, the ethereal look is everywhere at the moment and we can see why – the look is all about dreaminess.

For your own ethereal wedding, think metallics softened with an OTT amount of delicate florals and twinkling lights. Canopy hanging floral installations are big for this look, making guests feel as if they’re dining under a ceiling filled with clouds (not unlike a Hogwarts banquet). Masses of candles, lanterns, crystals and floral garlands will have guests’ hearts all aflutter (yes, aflutter) at the reception, while petal-strewn aisles and arbours with celestial motifs will make for Insta-ready ceremonies. General rule of thumb with this theme: if it’d make your five year-old self sigh and say ‘so pretty!’, chances are it’ll work. Buy fairylights in bulk.
