It is Coco Chanel wedding theme wonder on the blog today, as I have decided to stop muting my creative side and let it loose in weekly inspiration boards across a range of French style wedding and theme ideas.
The iconic French fashion designer Coco Chanel exudes chic elegance and an understated dramatic flare that is contained by luxury materials and flawless details. The style works in all seasons, but as we are summer loving I am adding in hints of pastel pink to the striking contrasting colours of black and white.

It would be fitting to have a Coco Chanel themed wedding in Paris, complete with intimate chapel wedding and old school luxurious wedding reception venue. However if this is not the case, the key to a Coco Chanel look is to stick to a limited colour palette and spend your money wisely to create the opulent look. Use white linen, faux pearls purchased at discount stores and black ribbon to establish the look and add more budget into the floral arrangements to create an opulent impact.
