Welcome to Weddingpaper*, Wallpaper’s first dip into nuptial nirvana, as seen in the October 2021, 25th Anniversary Issue and across Wallpaper.com. Forget the conventional and the staid; here, tradition comes with a twist and frou frou frills with a velvet blue mule.
Whether it’s pairing the cool metal hues of a rose gold Patek Philippe watch with the billowing folds of an In-Grid Bride gown, or juxtaposing a luminescent Mikimoto pearl brooch against the mischievous polka dots of a Dunhill shirt, brides and grooms are sure to find something style wise to love. Wedding guests, too, take note: our chic and sculptural guide to timeless gifting puts the days of mismatched china long behind us, making for a very modern take on wedded bliss.
Throughout our guide, we seek the chic, but with an eye for an alternative take on style. If a tiara will truly make your day, we have delicate yet dazzling options alongside more daring silhouettes. Should an insouciant suit, a simple slip dress, or full-on frills tick your bridal wear box, we've got that covered. And there’s no need to commit, to your wardrobe at least – consider pearl dresses and jewelled veils that are available for hire.
Recent times have seen weddings postponed, restricted, and in many cases totally reconceived. If you are considering tying the knot now, you may be thinking big or bijou for your wedding day, bold or understated, a lavish celebration or a simple ceremony. Whatever your plans, we hope that our edits of deeply desirable accoutrements for modern brides and grooms will help you find as much or as little as you need.
Find inspiration here, and below, and enjoy our matches made in design heaven!
