For an intimate French provincial wedding, look to actress Keira Knightley and musician James Righton's charming nuptials for inspiration. Even if you're planning a small, town-hall ceremony, chic details and a vineyard celebration can add glamour to your low-key affair.
Personalize your wedding with subtle details such as thank-you bags, beautiful chair sashes, or monogrammed wine-bottle covers. The customization will set your wedding apart and make for special shots for your wedding album.

French Provincial Décor
To create an intimate reception outdoors, try setting up one long table for your guests for an instantly cozy atmosphere. Think outside the box for place cards. Try decorative bottles with guests' names on the label. Not only does it serve as cool seating information, but it gives guests a memento to take home.

Sweet & Sparkly Bride
You don't have to go with a long hem on your wedding day to get a fun, feminine look. Short dresses are flirty, playful, and allow you to move through your special day with ease. In lieu of a veil, consider a floral crown for a whimsical look. Have your florist arrange a headpiece that coordinates with your bridal bouquet and wedding flowers. Make his-and-hers sunglasses a part of your wedding-day style by choosing coordinating shades that complement your look.

Vibrant & Stylish Honeymoon
While your honeymoon is supposed to be a chance to relax and celebrate, it's also an opportunity to obtain some new wardrobe items. Invest wisely and select garb you will wear for many vacations to come as Mr. & Mrs. It's fun to wear personalized jewelry with your new names or monogrammed initials on your honeymoon. You can have it made before your wedding – but wait to wear it once you're official!
