Consider yourself a classic bride? Created exclusively by the award-winning experts at Revelry Events, our latest wedding guide is made for the bride who loves all things elegant and timeless. Be inspired for your big day with hand-picked gowns that evoke a sense of romance, plus get acquainted with the most-coveted food, venue and entertainment trends of 2019.
The Bridal Dress
The classic bride’s choice of gown is always timeless – we can picture her walking down the stone-paved aisle of her local church in our Sophie lace maxi dress with its figure skimming silhouette and dramatic train. An upcoming trend cemented in some part thanks to the classic styles of the two royal brides of last year. Beauty choices are as subtle and elegant as the gown – think loose waves or a perfect chignon with dramatic eyes and a nude lip.
Florals also work perfectly for the classic bride, with soft, romantic tones still popular in 2019. Finish with a bouquet of blousy peonies and dahlias in shades of pink and cream with loose greenery.

The Bridesmaid Dresses
With style choices moving towards mis-matched dresses, the classic bride might consider dressing up her troupe of bridesmaids in a few different tones of champagne and pink, in different styles and cuts with a common thread tying everything together, like matching bouquets or customisable ties, like with the gorgeous Natasha dress.

Following the ceremony, lead the way back to their reception in a vintage getaway car adorned in flower garlands. Host your reception and dinner in the sprawling gardens of a country estate, under a beautiful open-sided marquee. Clean lines and a neutral palette make the blush and greenery pop on the dining tables.
Wedding favours have been slowly making their way out for years but replacing them is a move towards creative escort cards to lead people to their seats for dinner. Instead of a printed or handwritten table plan, imagine walking up to a beautiful table arranged with mini Moet bottles, each with a guest’s name and table number in elegant calligraphy onto the front. A lovely little surprise which also serves a purpose!
A classic white three-tiered wedding cake is a must for this bride style, but hints of personalisation with a custom calligraphy cake topper or a piped gold monogram give it an upgrade. We always suggest brides add a hint of their wedding flowers or greenery to elements like cake, to bring it all together, so adding some beautiful foliage to the setup is perfect.
When it comes to evening entertainment, the old faithful will always be the photo booth (there’s just something about that flattering lighting). But there are so many different ways to bring a twist to a classic – consider a white taxi photo booth where friends and family climb into the back seat to capture some memories.
