1. Dress like the Greek Gods and Goddesses
For the Bride: It is not difficult to fashion a bride to look like a Greek goddess. There is a huge list of inspiration available on the Internet for the trendiest looks.
Get yourself a Grecian bridal gown. Normally, Greek-inspired dresses has an asymmetrical or haltered neckline. The fabric is light and drapey with little to none embroidery. You can choose freely for the shade of your bridal gown, but it is the bright white that provides a heavenly impact.
Greek gowns are simple yet elegant. Wear gold or silver accessories or just accent your dress with thin metallic threads or belt. For the footwear, choose a metallic gladiator-inspired sandals that is popular for the Greeks. Accessorize with bangles or arm cuffs, and more importantly complete your look with an elegant updo.
For the Groom: In many cases, the groom can wear a conventional tux despite a themed wedding. However, with a splendid Greek-goddess for a bride, the groom should complement the look for a total package.
There is no need for the groom to be almost half naked like what we see in the movies for actors depicting the Greek gods. He can play down a tuxedos formality by wearing a breezy top made of a lighter fabric. This, on the other hand, does not necessarily work for a church wedding. If you choose a formal ceremony, you also have to dress formally.
For an outdoor wedding, the bride and groom can complete their Grecian-inspired get up by wearing a Greek wedding crown called Stefana. It’s stylish and offers a traditional Greek bridal look.
