Getting ready for the big day
Your first approach to the parisian theme wedding?
You guessed it: the wedding invitation!

to let your guest know about your big day celebration.
The wedding invitation is a very important item, do not underestimate it, it is the first approach and taste your guests will have of your celebration.
So make it theme appropriate, by using a paris design, or your wedding colors in a classic invitation.
Setting the scene
This wedding theme brings the elegance of the French city to your celebration.
With that in mind you will be working with black, white and light oranges to set the theme.
When setting the tables you could use white or light orange linen.
You have two options for your centerpiece.
A classic flower arrangement will bring the delicate and romantic effect to the table.
But if you are looking for something more unique for your parisian theme wedding, what better item but an
Eiffel tower centerpiece?
Or for a more dramatic effect , use an

We all know about the exquisite French cuisine. But do you really want to go with extravagant creations that more than likely your guests won't enjoy?
My best advice for this theme is to keep your audience in mind.
Escargots, very French and theme appropriate. Escargots that your guests will actually eat, not so likely...
So I will keep it French but also simple. For example: French onion soup , bacon soup, crepes ( one of my favorites), baguettes,
and creamy sauce asparagus are one of the few that everyone will enjoy.
And also big in French cuisine ... all those delicious desserts!!
Cheesecakes, flans and / or soufflés are among the most popular, so make sure to include one ( or all ) in your menu.
Your Wedding Cake
The traditional French wedding cake is the croquembouche. It consists of a pile of filled cream puffs in a pyramid, covered in light caramel.
However, as this may not be easy to achieve, you can go along with a beautiful traditional tiered cake
decorated in your wedding colors or flowers.
Think that a parisian theme wedding is all about romance, and a classic tiered cake it is very appropriate.
