Classic Soiree

Mostly A’s

You’ve always had a soft spot for that overwhelming romanticism that comes with a chic, fitted satin gown and a Juliet veil, white roses, and sky-high centerpieces. You’ve probably already hired a harpist for your walk down the aisle. The venue is stately, like a museum or chateau, and uses the three-tiered, all-white cake with pops of green flora. Every detail is perfectly executed, from calligraphy to coordinating bridesmaids’ gifts. For signature drinks, you’ve opted for the epitome of class: martinis, vespers, or Manhattans. Your first dance will be to a Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra song, swaying under twinkling lights.

Vintage Celebration

Mostly B’s

The delicate ribbon encircling your invitation, directing guests to a castle or historic hotel, sets the tone from the start.

An arbor adorned with your favorite flowers and greenery creates the ceremony altar. Your centerpieces are mercury glass (probably thrifted, just to be authentic) spilling with flowers and surrounded by pillar candles of various shades and sizes. You’ll don a timeless sheath dress, either with delicate beadwork or all lace. For hair, opt for a tight updo with a delicate birdcage veil in lieu of a long, traditional one. Finally, drive off for your sunset in a vintage Chevrolet Bel Air.

Eco-Friendly, Earth-Minded

Mostly C’s

You’ve probably said at more than one wedding this year: “These flowers are beautiful, but what a waste.” So, you’ve elected for more wallet- and earth-friendly silk-flower bouquets, dried floral arrangements in upcycled vases for centerpieces, and potted succulent favors for guests or a unique tchotchke sourced from the local thrift store. Your invitations were printed on recycled paper, welcoming guests to enjoy an outdoor celebration in a LEED-certified event space. You’ve opted to buy the dress from a sustainable brand, likely with a flowy skirt, meaningful embroidery, and maybe even bell sleeves.

Boho-Chic Bash

Mostly D’s

This “shoes optional” wedding is most likely held on far-flung sands, with a naked cake and an open-air celebration. Tradition is scant, and you’re saying, “I do” in your own way. There are flower crowns for you and your bridesmaids, with complementary whimsical florals scattered around the venue in bud vases. Under ethereal draped fabric framing the event space, you opt for long, family-style tables. Your dress, again deviating from the norm, is in a subtle shade of Champagne with flutter sleeves and an open back, finished with a sparkly cape. Favors encompass a collection of bells, crystals, and incense for guests to select from before your sparkler exit.
