Despite the tragic ending of Odette and Prince Siegfried, the romantic tale of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake continues to be an inspiring wedding theme for wintertime. With a muted palette of blush hues, white and ivory, including metallics, we’ve assembled a classy winter ballet inspiration board that brings glamorous and vintage elements together with very little color and promises to have very little swans lurking around the reception!
Inspirational Elements for a Swan Lake Ballet Winter Wedding
Think ethereal + romantic with a ballet-inspired tulle ball gown from Christos. Accessorize your hair with a pretty winter comb via BHLDN. Dress your bridesmaids in sparkly nude sequin dresses from Badgley Mischka. For a ballet themed wedding, consider an opera house or museum as your reception venue. Envision your tablescape with blush pink and white floral centerpieces accented with gold décor elements like gold-foil table numbers.
Plan a wedding toast with not only champagne, but also champagne-infused macarons for a sophisticated treat. As for your wedding cake, bring out the theme with a pretty swan cake topper (“bride and groom”) atop a blush cake decorated with metallic accents. Lastly, thank your guests with pretty white favor bags filled with classic Jordan almonds.
See how it all comes together below. As promised, there will only be two swans at this Swan Lake wedding!
