Planning a unique angel wedding is easier than you might think. From invitations to decorations, an angel theme is a beautiful way to profess your love! Incorporating an angel theme into a Christmas or Valentine’s Day celebration, which have angels as a part of their theme already makes planning your perfect day even easier! Here are some suggestions.
Depending on the time of year, an outdoor wedding ceremony in a breezy coastal location creates a magical ambience. However, if an inside wedding is your piece of cake (no pun intended) taking an angel theme to the pews and steeples of the church can be done with the help of your local party store and lighting store.
Churches that have high cathedral ceilings and stained glass windows make a perfect setting for your angel theme wedding. Long and flowing sheer fabric cut and draping multiple sections from the ceiling coupled with blue and silver flowers adorned in the center make an ultra feminine theme and creates a beautiful back drop for wedding photos. Making sure the bridesmaid dresses are simple and cream colored with the groomsmen wearing gray or cream colored tuxedos, the flower girl and ring bearer will top off the “angel” look by wearing similar colors. The ring bearer’s pillow and the flower girl’s basket can be decorated with the same colors hung high from the church’s ceiling to bring it all together.
Stringing lights across the altar, the pews and the runner to the front of the church will create a magical light and the bride should wear a flowing gown that fits the romantic atmosphere. Placing feathers in the bride’s hair or a halo around an up-do compliments the gown’s romantic look and just the right make up look can give an angelic glow to the bride’s face.
For the reception, have someone do an angel ice sculpture. Mimic the decorations done in the church for the ceremony in the reception hall. Ceilings draped with tulle, gathered in the middle with the blue and silver-cloud-like fabric used also on the table center pieces and lit from the center to the walls will be marvelous! Make sure all of the accessories, cake knife set, cake top, gift basket, etc. all carry an angel theme. Decorate the tables with little white feathers surrounding a taper candle with a glass hurricane lamp (to protect the little feathers from burning) and use placeholders with your guest’s names on angel themed cards. White chairs draped with tulle or sheer fabric and brought together with angel’s wings adds an elegant, expensive look to the reception hall, taking away from the metallic, cold emptiness most halls and annexes naturally carry with them.
Music and food can also carry the angel theme. Soft romantic music should be the goal with a modern touch. Light angel-food cake served with fruits (of the Gods, of course) (buffalo) wings…just kidding!
