1. The Dress

A French style wedding dress normally means a simple, elegant and bohemian look.

Designers such as Laure De Sagazan and Margaux Tardits are all the rage at the moment with Parisian brides.

2. The Shoes

Your feet may thank you for choosing a French style for your wedding day as it is quite common for French brides to ditch the heels and opt for a strappy sandal or ballet flat. Add a touch of comfort without sacrificing any style with a pair of Christian Louboutin flats or a simple lace ballerina style shoe.

5. The Decorations

We've touched on the floral aspect of your French theme, but there are so many little decorative touches you can use to create that perfect Paris wedding. Incorporate some of the elements that the Capital of Love is famous for, such as Eiffel Tower table decorations and your own take on the romantic ‘love locks' of the Pont des Arts. Think outside the box with bicycles or add a certain ‘je ne sais quoi' by using the French language.
