Opulent wedding ideas worthy of a Queen

Good Morning lovelies!  Today’s ideas board has been inspired by my recent trip to The Ritz London and their beautiful Marie Antoinette Suite. With ornate decoration in Louis XVI style, the Marie Antoinette Suite is based on a Salon in the Palace of Versailles and is the catalyst for today’s opulent wedding ideas.

Whether you are looking to get married in France at one of the vast grand Chateaus,  or in the UK in the Ritz Marie Antoinette Suite, the key is to incorporate a sense of Marie Antoinette’s style throughout your wedding design.

The Queen lived during the neoclassical period or Louis XVI era  and was well known for using pastel colours in her interior design especially pastel pink, with additions of yellow, green and blue and include white and gold as accent colours for a true opulent look.
