Will your wedding be traditional or modern?
Classic and timeless, or chic and contemporary
Wedding trends are consistently changing and developing – but there’s one question you will need to answer before you begin planning in earnest. As you enter into married life, your wedding day will be beautiful and full of romance – so all you need to decide is whether you want a traditional or a modern wedding.
While a traditional wedding might be the vision you dreamed of when you were little, imagining your wedding day, there are so many fantastic new ideas for modern weddings that have emerged over the years. Traditional or contemporary, you will still need to find the right wedding reception venue. No matter which way you decide to go, the beautiful Crewe Hall in the heart of Cheshire is the perfect venue to make your big day unforgettable.
Dating back to the 17th century, Crewe Hall holds hundreds of years of history, and has played host to royalty. Today, it’s a stunning luxury location in Cheshire, perfectly marrying both an iconic historical venue with a modern, chic and contemporary hotel.
So, are you feeling more vintage and timeless, or chic and smart? Let us guide you through some ideas for these two visions of a perfect day, and no matter your style, can help you create a stunning, romantic wedding day.
Classic and Timeless
A traditional wedding is classic and beautiful - the preferred choice for many brides-to-be when planning a wedding. Think a showstopping white dress, cathedral length veil, and iconic wedding moments – adorable flower girls scattering petals, walking down the aisle to Here Comes the Bride, and a delicious wedding breakfast for your beloved friends and families.
To create a timeless wedding day, think about the elements that you’ll always look back on at your wedding – work with a local florist to create a classic bouquet, with traditional romantic flowers like roses and baby’s breath for a romantic feel. For your photographs, instead of stiff or posed portraits, work with one of our recommended photographers to discover unexpected and beautiful locations, like the historic Chapel here at Crewe Hall, Cheshire – guaranteed to make an incredible image you’ll never forget.
Most of all, for a traditional wedding day, the venue is the most important element. You want your guests to arrive to a feeling of romance and grandeur – and there’s certainly nothing more grand than sweeping up the long drive in a classic car to see the stunning vista of Crewe Hall. With more than eight beautiful classic wedding rooms to choose from, you can still ensure you put your own stamp on your big day. Choose from iconic locations like the Great Library, with its stunning panelled ceiling, or the Carved Parlour, with intricate wooden carved walls. Held in an amazing room that’s full of history, your traditional ceremony will be timeless and unforgettable.
Chic and Contemporary
For a modern bride, a sleeker look is a popular choice. No fancy chair covers or fussy invitations – you can really put your own mark on your big day with some modern choices. The iconic manor-house exterior of a venue like Crewe Hall hides a sleek, 21st century modern hotel and Spa – so you can still enjoy all the grandeur of Crewe Hall, and still put a contemporary spin on your day.
If you’re wondering how to make your wedding effortlessly chic and stylish, start with the details – from transparent acetate invitations to cute favours like personalised shot glasses, your big day will feel smart and sleek.
