1. Choose a classical wedding theme
If you are not willing to take many risks, yet want to keep the wedding theme classical, then going for a classic all-white wedding theme is best for you. The white wedding is attributed to Queen Victoria who picked a white gown to wear over the traditional heavy brocaded gowns decorated with white and golden thread embroideries.

2. Pay attention to Aisle decoration
It is a dream of almost every girl to walk down the aisle one day when she grows up, so why not make it look really special by decorating it with classical white flowers and candles that add even more magic to the venue. Decorating the aisle with the candles is also a great idea if you are planning a winter wedding. This will not just add warmth but will make the aisle look gorgeous.
3. Wedding lights display
Using wedding lights display is another great way to add drama and elegance to your wedding. The best thing about these lights display is that they are available in a variety of colors and styles. These lights come in various shapes and sizes which include bells, hearts, and doves. You will also find some lights in rose designs. Just plug them in and you will get a spectacularly lighted wedding decoration. You can put these lights anywhere you like. From the wedding’s party table to the entrance or dance area, you can use these lights to decorate any area of your choice.
4. Use the classic décor items
For classical decoration, make sure the items you use to decorate your wedding venue are classics too. Use classics like candelabras, chair sashes, votives, fine china, vintage lanterns and luxe table linens. Keep the décor classic and not too vibrant or extravagant. Use the dull colors and shades and ignore items that are too flashy. Make sure that the decoration gives you the elegant and sophisticated vibe. For a classical decoration, it is suggested that you use colors from the neutral palette like beige, white and cream.
5. Choose flowers wisely
While choosing the wedding flowers, just remember that there is nothing better than roses. Roses are timeless and add romance to the ambiance and wedding scene in its own classical way. Another good thing about these flowers is that they are available all the time of the year. White roses are the best choice for the classical wedding as it adds serenity and makes the decoration look authentic and elegant at the same time. You can also use peonies. Though they are available for a short time only and are quite expensive as compared to roses, they look quintessentially classic and as beautiful as roses.
6. Do a little experiment with centerpieces
To add a little classical touch to the centerpieces, you can place leather books at the center of the table, topped with one interesting quote from any of the classic literary picks. You can also decorate the tables by putting the flowers in antique vases or gold vessels. Using candelabra is another great way to add a classic feel to your wedding decoration. You can also use pearl necklaces and laces with flowers as centerpieces.
Also, before you start your wedding decoration, make a list of the things you want and check how you could match them to your classic wedding theme. It will not just help you to get the right results, but will also make your decoration task a lot easier for you.
