Halloween may have passed but New Years is coming nearer. So we thought, “Hey, what’s a big, fun wedding theme?” A masquerade wedding comes to mind! Everyone will be dressed to impress with the most beautiful masks at your grand wedding. Send out the wedding invites early because this will be the wedding event of the year. Sashay through for ideas for an elegant masquerade wedding.


1. Dress Code

A dress code is a must. Set it as a black-tie event for a fancy wedding. “BYOM” for “Bring your own mask.” Otherwise, set out a table of beautiful masks for your guests to take (doubles as a wedding favor!).

2. Black, White, & Gold

An ultra chic masquerade only needs three colors: black, white and gold. Mix up the dining pieces with black glasses, white china, and gold silverware.

Texture is one of the top wedding dress trends for Fall 2014. Designers like Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta turned simple silhouettes into works of art. Besides lovely lace, there were textures ranging from glamorous beading to lattice backs. Take a look at some of our favorite wedding dresses and textures.

1. Petal Sleeves

Pretty petal sleeves are so soft and romantic. The airy flutter of the sleeves creates the perfect frame to show off the decolletage.

2. Floral Mesh Overlay

Floral mesh is a lovely alternative to traditional lace. It gives that same amount of mystery by showing a bit while still covering.

3. Beading and Sequins

Beading and sequins are extremely luxurious. The key is to go for tiny beads and sequins for more of a luxe look.

4. Lattice Back

A beautiful lattice-inspired design is fresh and youthful on a sleeved dress. Lattice opens up the dress and adds interest.

5. Soft Feathers

For a cozy, warm dress, feathers are the way to go! Feathers are lightweight but add that soft touch.

6. Flouncy Layered Skirt

A flouncy tiered layered skirt is so fun and flirty. Much more elegant in a light flowy fabric like chiffon on a long skirt

These shawls are the best year-round accessory you can wear long after your wedding. Yellow is a sunny and season-less color.
