Snow White Gowns

Of course, a pure white wedding dress makes sense when it comes to picking your bridal gown for an all-white theme, but why not extend the colour scheme out to your bridesmaids as well? Breaking the rule that only the bride should wear white has never looked so stylish - just ask Kate Moss and Kim Kardashian! If you're skin-tone is very pale and you'd prefer a slightly warm shade, go for an off-white or light ivory dress.

Crystal & Pearl Accessories

The natural sheen of pearls will look gorgeous against your white dress, so choose pearl jewellery and hair accessories to add the finishing touch to your bridal look. If you prefer a glamorous Old Hollywood style, crystal accessories are perfect to add classic sparkle.

Perfectly Pale Flowers

One of the areas that will make the biggest impact at your all-white wedding is your flowers. You can either mix and match blooms in the same shade of ivory for a pretty effect, or go for a modern look with one flower throughout - peonies, roses and tulips look particularly good in all-white bouquets and centrepieces. If you're working to a tight budget, gypsophilia is an excellent way to get the look for less.

Sweetness and Light

Wedding cakes look fabulous in all white, because they're so versatile. You could choose a butter-cream frosted cake for a rustic look or pure white royal icing for something cleaner, and then decorate with sugar or fresh flowers, lace embroidered detail or pearly sugar beads.

It couldn't be easier to create a pale dessert table. Choose items that are already white, like mint imperials and marshmallows, or add icing or dessicated coconut to your favourite sweet treats.

Pale and Interesting Stationery

Worried that white stationery will look plain? Don't fret - just add one stand-out detail such as a satin ribbon, expert calligraphy or embossed detailing to make your invitations look impressive.

White and Light Decorations

For white decor, the natural material to use is paper! Create hanging decorations like white tissue pom poms, origami birds or pretty pin-wheels in shades of ivory and cream, and use them for a glamorous photo booth back drop. White photo frames, birdcages and candles are also ideal for all-white centrepieces, and won't blow your bridal budget either!
