What could be more romantic than a French wedding with a Parisian theme accent? That enchanting city of lights imbued with a bit of magic. Couples travel from all over the world to this alluring city to create memorable romantic memory. The photographic settings alone, in front the many stunning backdrops, can make any couple feel like they've been dropped into their own Hollywood film.
As intoxicating as traveling to Paris sounds, let's be honest, not all of us can exchange our nuptials, celebrate a honeymoon, or expect guests to travel to this expensive European destination. However, creating several uniquely Parisian themed experiences, throughout your wedding (no matter where you live), can still be achieved. Indeed, this enticing venue can inspire so many accents for your big day. To that end, we have gathered several dreamy and affordable Parisian theme accent ideas to help you embellish your French wedding. We've selected everything from decorative paper, rubber stamps, place card holders, macaroon inspiration, and wedding favors, all to make your fete one to remember!
Let's start with paper selections. Choose from wraps like an old map or Paris Ephemera (as seen below), created by Cavallini. These are ideal choices for decorative paper treatments. From lining your envelopes to complementing paper bands on your invitations, or even used simply as gift wrap for your wedding party favors - these options can add color and texture to any invite, save-the-date or package.
Next, greet your guests at the main entry with these iconic Eiffel Tower place card holders - sure to create a memorable accent as guests arrive at your event. The clip style design makes them easy to use and visually stunning all lined up in rows.
How about adding some of these vintage quintessential travel rubber stamps to everything from your save-the-dates, to your menus, and programs. Guests will enjoy feeling like they are taking a little adventure with you throughout the entire experience.
Let's not forget featuring those oh-so-lovely signature meringue macaroons. To help illustrate some examples, we found this pretty image, from Simply Peachy, which features these signature pale confections added to wedding cakes, cupcakes, or better yet, an entire sweets table centered on all things Parisian.
Lastly, we wanted to share a few thank you gifts for your guests. We have gathered two bottle stopper favors (because what could be better for keeping your French champagne), one for your male guests and another for your female guests. Most guests that comes as couples don't need two of the same gift, so for the men we recommend this handsome Fleur de Lis stopper. And for the woman, we couldn't resist this fun and colorful macaroon version bottle stopper.
Not only will the favors look colorful on your tables, it will allow couples to leave with some variety for use during their own gatherings. The best part, they'll think of your wedding every time they use them! We hope our collection of Parisian accent wedding themed ideas helps inspire you in pulling together your own uniquely French themed wedding.
