The latest trend in Hollywood weddings isn't over-the-top ballrooms or exotic locations; it's intimate, at-home celebrations. Create your own backyard bliss influenced by Drew Barrymore's nuptials to Will Kopelman. Mix fresh floral details with plush pillows and luxe lanterns for a boho-chic look with fashion-inspired elegance at your own garden getaway.
If your location has grass or uneven terrain, make a note of it on your wedding website or on an invitation insert. Guests will appreciate being prepared with the right footwear. An invitation that comes in a box is the ultimate gift for your guests. It not only provides details, it becomes an instant keepsake.

Keep fashionable flats nearby on your big day, even if you think you won't need them. When your feet start to hurt, you can replace your heels without sacrificing your bridal style. If you're getting married outdoors, don't forget your sunglasses! They count as a bridal accessory, so choose something soft with a rose or champagne lens that will complement your overall look.
Add instant dimension to your all-white look with colored jewels. Select an accessory that features stones in hues that reflect those of your flowers for a subtle, yet integrated look. You don't need a family heirloom to get the look of "something old." Choose earrings with an antique aesthetic for a similar effect.

Think beyond the basics and choose a patterned shirt with a solid tie for your man. Don't let your groom leave everything to the last minute. Lay out his entire outfit and inspect everything from pocket square to cuff links to socks – even hair product! This will ensure a smooth, stress-free day for him (and you).
