Maintain a sense of European elegance and romance at your nuptials by incorporating muted tones into the décor à la celebrities Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, who wed in Southern Italy. Even if you are unable to travel afar for a destination wedding, follow the lead of these A-list stars and make your wedding guests feel as if they are on Italian land with dreamy details throughout every wedding event.
Be inspired by the whimsical details fit for a celebrity, below, and transport your loved ones to a faraway land – without leaving your hometown.
You don't have to travel far to achieve the look and feel of a destination wedding. Incorporate romance into everything, from décor, table settings, and even your invitation, with a light color palette and floral accents. To create the feeling of an intimate dinner party at your reception, try seating your guests at long king's tables rather than small, square or round individual tables. Incorporate pretty details and small personalized touches into your table setting to make each guest feel special while adding an extra element of detail and design.

Start your skincare regimen several weeks before your nuptials to achieve the perfect bridal glow on your wedding day, and remember to have your jewelry cleaned before the big day. If you can't get to the jewelry store, let your gems soak overnight in gentle soap and water for maximum sparkle. Don't leave packing your purse until the last minute. Lay out all the contents of what you need the night before, so that your wedding clutch is ready to go and you can check that off your list.

Pack smart for your honeymoon by finding a wristlet purse that can be a compact carryall for all of your essentials day or night. There's no need to pack multiple bags: pick one big tote for your getaway and have it double as a carry on for the plane and a beach bag for the sand. If your honeymoon destination is far away, don't forget to plan for the plane. From games to cozy travel blankets, you never can be too prepared.
