Gauze Table Runners for French Chateau Inspired Weddings
Paris, France is known to the world as the “City of Love”. Where else would we want our dream weddings to be? But if you don’t have the time to visit the romantic city just yet and get married in an authentic, dreamy French castle or villa, don’t worry! We bet you can plan a mean French chateau inspired wedding that can make guests feel like they spent a full day in France.
For today’s blog, we will be featuring a gorgeous wedding photo shoot plus a tablescape design that is perfect for that French wedding you’ve been dreaming about.
French Chateau Inspired Weddings in Romantic Garden Settings
This perfect, sunlit photo (and a few more) was actually shot in Paris, France, but no worries. We can give you a few tips on how to achieve that “authentic” French chateau wedding without actually visiting the country.
French chateau inspired weddings usually go for romantic garden settings with lush greenery and light-colored flowers. French chateaus boast of sprawling gardens that are suspended in time, looking like they existed in the 19th century instead of the 21st.
French chateau inspired weddings give off a timeless romantic vibe. There is an old-world magic that gets reflected in photos and videos of the event. You don’t have to worry about how your wedding will turn out in film. French chateaus are just so effortlessly beautiful. We totally understand why French chateau inspired weddings are a trend all over the world.
Elegant Tablescape Wedding Design to Fit the Timelessness of French Chateaus
The feeling of old-world, timeless romance should be reflected in every last detail of the wedding, of course. The tablescape design should reflect the effortless beauty of the place. It should feel natural and classy.
Our tablescape design for today is perfect for an outdoor garden setting or an indoor castle reception. If you decide to hold the wedding in an indoor setting, the key is lots and lots of natural lighting. Big, curtainless windows with a view of the gardens reflect the effortless beauty of French chateaus.
Gauze Table Runners Instead of Table Linens as the Highlight of Our Tablescape Design
French chateau inspired weddings go for classy and rustic. We used gauze table runners instead of heavy table linens because it fits more with French chateau dining. You can use table runners to accentuate vintage tables, especially wooden ones. They also fit with the natural lighting element of French chateaus.
Gauze table runners highlight centerpieces as well. You can opt for flower centerpieces to keep the romantic garden setting going! Remember, we’re going for effortless and classy so it’s better to choose light-colored flowers for your tablescape. Play around with shades of white, peach, and baby blue. Did we mention that Pantone’s official color of 2019 is coral? Try getting some Coral Charm peonies for your centerpiece!
Gauze Table Runners as an Overall Design Element in French Chateau Inspired Weddings
Who says table runners are just for...well, tables? You can use gauze table runners as an overall design in French chateau inspired weddings. Just like using gardens as romantic backdrop, you can definitely use gauze table runners as a backdrop on your wedding elements like rings, wedding invitations, etc.
Gauze table runners just go perfectly with French chateau inspired weddings. The old-world, effortless magic of French chateaus are reflected with the rustic, natural feel of gauze table runners.
Natural Lighting on French Chateau Inspired Weddings
French chateau inspired weddings do great with natural lighting, as you can see. Natural lighting does not mean daytime per se. If you’re thinking about holding your wedding in late afternoon through the evening, don’t worry.
A romantic garden setting does not stop being romantic just because the sun went down. It might even be more romantic at night, when everyone go dancing under the stars. And yes, those gauze table runners still exude rustic glamor even in the nighttime.
