Discover easy ways to add a modern, glam look to your big day.
If you're looking for a simple way to add a glamorous feel to your nuptials, consider using mirrors in your ceremony and reception décor. This trend has been popular for some time, and rightly so! We love how using mirrors provides an elegant look, while also being functional to either make a space feel larger or reflect beautiful scenery or the floral arrangements at your celebration. As with a neutral color palette, mirrors can be incorporated into a variety of wedding styles – from mirrored geometric lanterns at a rustic-elegant event to gorgeous gold-framed mirrors displaying guests' seating assignments at a black-tie affair.
There are many ways to achieve the look you desire with mirrored elements. Mirrored welcome signs will wow your guests – and give them a chance to see how dashing they look in their formal attire, risers with reflective surfaces provide a wonderful base for a ceremony floral arrangement, and mirrored menus emblazoned with calligraphy in your color choice adds a fun accent to your cocktail hour or reception. Small mirrors can also be used as escort cards in the same way, or towering framed mirrors can display seating assignments either in chart form or as the base for escort cards to be affixed. We also love the look of mirrored vases on reception tables, having the table tops themselves reflect the candlelight and florals, and using small mirrors for either menus, chargers, or "Mr." and "Mrs." signs on the backs of the bride and groom's chairs.
