Pippa Middleton, sister to Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, rocketed to the top of the social media world for her first walk down the wedding aisle back in 2011. At that event she was maid of honor, holding her sister’s train and following the royal bride down the aisle, while spectators world wide started commentary on her — ahem–derrière.

This time in the spotlight, Pippa, 33, walked the aisle as the bride, and on May 20 she wed financier James Matthews at her local church, St. Mark’s in Englefield. The reception was held back at her parents’ lavish Berkshire home.

Some of her royal connections served in the wedding, with Prince George as page and Princess Charlotte as flower girl. Her sister Kate helped keep the children in order as they entered the church.The entry was adorned with gorgeous garlands of pink and white flowers and greens, adding the perfect fairy tale touch to the heritage venue.

The guest list, though much smaller than her sister’s, did contain some famous faces. Roger Federer was in attendance as well as Ben Fogle, and of course Pippa’s extended Royal family, including Prince William and Prince Harry.

The church and its grounds were absolutely filled with gorgeous pink and white flowers! Pippa loves flowers and made beautiful selections including peonies, roses, sweetpeas, freesias, waxflower, and green bellflowers for a truly stunning mix. Another intimate personal touch was a drawing of the church, done by her sister Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, included on the cover of the order of service.

It has been said that there are no perfect weddings, only beautiful ones, and in more ways than one, this sentiment is very much true. Part of what makes a wedding beautiful is its designated venue and how it is being set up. However, instead of incorporating a myriad of elements and cramming them all into your wedding, it would be wise to go with a singular theme and base your wedding décor from that theme. In this way, not only would you be minimize the likelihood of discordant notes and elements in your wedding reception, but your wedding design would have a semblance of cohesion and harmony making the end result look breathtaking.

So, before you start looking for appropriate wedding packages, decide on a wedding theme first. Here is a selection of the top and most popular wedding themes of this year:

1.) Greenery

There is something subtly elegant and beautiful about a wedding inspired with greenery. It conveys the couple’s love for nature, and it makes for a great backdrop in taking exquisite photos as well! Apart from that, a greenery theme is lush and looks expensive without it actually being one. Although it has been making waves this year, it would give your wedding a classic look as it will never go out of style. Plan with your coordinator as to how you can incorporate the perfect green into your wedding.

2.) Vintage

Opulent décor, outdated chandeliers, sophisticated masonry on the walls, touches of rust and gold—all of these elements are definitive of one thing: a vintage theme. A vintage wedding theme remains relevant until today as its quaint charm is something most couples would seek for during their wedding. It is beautiful as well as sophisticated without it being over the top. Additionally, it encapsulates all things that are associated with weddings such as lace fabric, the ivory hue and shades of rose and gold—making this theme a lot easier to accomplish.

3.) Barn Wedding

Though it is not exactly something you would see every day, a barn wedding has its own distinct charm that no other wedding themes have. While most wedding themes are all about being elegant and sophisticated, a barn wedding is more down-to-earth and simple but that does not make it any less beautiful. Furthermore, a barn wedding is perfect for rustic elements and that warm feel of nostalgia. If these two are crucial elements to you, you might want to consider this theme for your wedding.

 

Blue Sky Bouquet

4.) Seaside Wedding

Weddings by the sea are particularly popular during the summer season. Not only will your wedding be an event to commemorate, but it would double as a vacation for your guests as well. Getting married by the sea would allow you to have your hair flowing through the breeze and your toes touching the sand. Making this wedding theme beautiful would take minimal hard work as the place you have selected is already exquisite and breathtaking enough. If you want a truly unique approach, utilize seashells into your bridal bouquets and ask your guests to attend your ceremony barefoot so that they can step on the sand as well.
