As some of you may know, I’ve just returned from Paris and had a wonderful tour of Versailles. The tour guide talked a lot about Marie Antoinette, and we saw her separate ‘hamlet’ and Petit Trianon where she spent much of her time. Since then, I’ve gone a bit mad over Marie Antoinette, and am hoping to do a lot of reading into her history.
To start things off, I thought I’d indulge in some Marie Antoinette wedding inspiration – I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
If you are planning this theme for your wedding, use lots of pastel colours (pink, green, blue, yellow, gold), and the styling will need to include lots of embellishments – lace, pearls and glitz. Use lots of draping for your linen, glittery candelabra, old fashioned pastel roses, fans and parasols.
For your dress, go for something very elaborate, such as this style by Stella de Libero.
Etsy seller Paper Nosh has created this gorgeous Marie Antoinette stationery (amongst many other lovely designs). And I just love this amazing wedding cake, the colours, the detail and patterns – very ‘Marie Antoinette’!
