Not everyone can afford to get married in Venice, Italy, take a jet boat to their ceremony and close streets around the courthouse to facilitate the civil ceremony but George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin sure made it look glamourous! Their wedding was very romantic – flowers in shades of white and cream attached to the chairs for the ceremony, an incredible number of candles including a hall with flickering walls of candles and the dress…my goodness…the dress – Oscar de la Renta with two layers of tulle, a cathedral-length train, all hand-embroidered with pearls and elegant accents!
Custom designed by Oscar de la Renta (because, who else!), Alamuddin’s dress was an incredible display of lace, pearls and diamante accents. The dress had capped sleeves of lace which continued across the top of the bodice, before falling from an empire waist down to a full skirt. Lace was super popular this year, with both celebrities and non-celebrities alike so you could buy a similar dress for much, much less! Like this Mori Lee wedding dress with a very similar full lace skirt and incredible train…on sale for only $600USD! Or check out the long luxury train on this incredible lace dress, more expensive at $1,500 USD but still well priced and cheaper than Alamuddin’s dress!
The Ceremony Space:
Romantic, candlelit and filled with flowers, Clooney and Alamuddin turned their ceremony space into a romantic and intimate affair with white and cream flowers, gold chairs and other gold accents. Even the wedding archway at the front of the aisle was covered in white and crème flowers. Looking to replicate the marriage archway? Check out this white iron archway ($100 USD) which could easily be decorated anyway you wanted – this Bride covered hers in roses and tulle, customizing it with gorgeous flowers much like the one for Clooney and Alamuddin’s ceremony. They also had flowers adorning the chairs on their aisle…you could use these hydrangea aisle swags ($15 USD each, 10+ available!) to decorate your chairs in a similar style!
The main theme of Alamuddin and Clooney’s wedding really seemed to be the lighting and the candles. Gold votive holders, guest escort cards of cream linen and spectacular displays of various lighting, really added to the romantic and intimate feeling for some 200 guests. Recreate that feeling of romance with these gold votive holders (120 available for $275 USD – includes free shipping!), or how about these gold mercury glass candleholders topped with white fabric roses? Pair it all with sequined gold table runners ($20 USD) and voila…gorgeous and romantic!
