Elegant Burberry Themed Wedding

Recently we were asked to put together some ideas for a Burberry themed wedding. Not so much the actual print but more or less the Burberry colors. This bride has very specific taste and loved the inspirational photos we chose for her. Still early in the planning stages but she thinks she's leaning more towards the black colors...what do you think?

For the Bride/Ladies we chose this absolutely stunning dress...LOVE it!!! She also liked the black dress for her Bridesmaid's with the subtle burgundy touches. She plans on having all white flowers which will go perfect with both her dress and the Bridesmaid's dresses. So wish I did black dresses for my girls.

For the Groom/Men we went with the standard black Burberry print tie with a classic black tux. The Groomsmen will wear the lighter print tie. She adored the matching cuff links for her Groom :)

Now lets move onto the Reception...all photos took our breath away and felt they matched this Bride's personality. The right top & bottom photos have the chocolate brown table cloth so these inspirational photos would fit the brown/beige Burberry style.

We just loved these unique ideas for table numbers. How lovely are the table numbers on the back of the chairs? Just love it!!! The place cards are fabulous too! Love the rhinestone for the sparkly touch.

Now we move onto the Menu's. There is something just so classy and elegant with the menu's slipped into a folded napkin; even love the added flower in the first photo. The touch of burgundy around the second menu is perfect for this Bride's theme.

There's always room for dessert...For the cake ideas we chose an all white/off white cake for that elegant feel but we also added some cakes with color.

Chair know we had to add our favorite obsession (aside from flowers)

Hope you enjoyed our "Burberry" Themed wedding ideas...will keep you up to date for which way this Bride decides to go...the black or brown. Which do you prefer?

I came across the Ranunculus on Fleurs designer, Jessica Wolvek's, website/blog and I'm absolutely in love. Her work is not only amazing but her website/gallery is gorgeous! "She was trained in the classical art of flower design (ikebana) in Japan (how cool!!!). Her works are influenced by traditional European styles with hints of Asian influences to bring the perfect combination of old world elegance with zen modern simplicity." Below are some of our favorite images off of her site. Please go check out this local NYC florist!!!
