Setting a new Hollywood trend for weekday weddings, actress Cameron Diaz wed rocker Benji Madden on a Monday in January in a star-studded backyard celebration. They combined Hollywood glamour with rock-and-roll elements for an event that was true to the couple's individual styles.
To achieve a similar romantic, edgy ambience, consider a winter color palette of black, white, and metallic with candlelit tables, and outdoorsy details to create a cozy atmosphere. Also, take a cue from their snowy honeymoon in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and set off on an intimate winter getaway.
When planning an outdoor wedding, help guests arrive prepared for the elements by indicating on invitation inserts what types of coats or outerwear to take along. Black and white are crisp, timeless neutral colors that complement other hues and metallic tones.
Work with your florist to create a bouquet that ties into the location. For a backyard wedding, choose a design that appears freshly picked.

If you choose to have your bridesmaids wear black frocks, have fun with different textures and lengths. This will show off individual styles, yet give the cohesive appearance of a chic wedding party.Give your gals a gift with meaning. Pick a piece of jewelry that is special to you and can be worn with their dresses. They will appreciate having something to wear on the big day that also serves as a keepsake.
Groom & Honeymoon
Let your groom’s personality shine through. If he has a hobby or style that is uniquely his, work it into his wedding attire and the event décor to make him feel like it is just as much his day as it is yours.
