Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at This Pitch Perfect Star’s Wedding Planning
Anna Camp’s engagement ring Instagram pic knocked our socks off earlier this year. Not long after, Skylar Astin’s engagement ring for men blew our minds. Now, the aca-dorable (sorry, we had to) Pitch Perfect co-stars and real life couple are knee-deep in planning their wedding and they’re facing the same dilemma as the rest of us soon-to-wed folks: choosing their wedding style. With the help of Wedding Paper Divas’ Style & Etiquette Expert Amber Harrison, Anna was able to see three gorgeous options IRL *before* deciding which one to choose for her big day. From rustic to romantic to straight up glam, these looks do not disappoint. Scroll on to see the couple’s top three wedding style picks, plus get expert tips on how to find your wedding look below!
1. Hollywood Glam
Camp is one of Hollywood’s fresh and budding starlets, so it makes perfect sense that this Bella loves the old Hollywood look! The style is totally Gatsby-inspired with cocktails galore, white bouquets, dress gloves as a quirky take-home for guests and a whole lot of gold, black and glam. The sequin table cloth also adds a bit of modern flair to the tablescape.
2. Elegant Romance
This is the ultimate girly girl’s dream table setting. Think: drippy candles, pale pinks, greens and pretty pastels. The elegant, romantic style calls for loose wavy curls, glittery heels and long flowing dresses. And this sweet pink tulle heart backdrop? It’s icing on the cake!
3. Rustic Chic
Rustic chic wedding decor is all about embracing simple, nature-inspired looks with colors from dark browns to luscious, flowing green plants and crisp white linens and stationery. It’s understated and sure to bring out the natural beauty of your special day. To pull off the rustic chic look, long, wooden farm tables are topped with short, full white peony bouquets and matching artisanal-style ceramic vases.
Camp and Astin’s wedding style is still TBD, but for now, Wedding Paper Diva’s Style and Etiquette Expert Harrison tells us some helpful tips on how brides and grooms can figure out their own wedding style!
1. Incorporate both of your styles: “Consider your relationship. You want your wedding to be a reflection of yours and your future husband or wife’s style. Anna and Skylar are a more low-key couple that loves staying home and hanging out with their dog, Rocky, so they may not want an overly formal affair. Think about what you and your other half like to do. If your Friday night involves trips to the symphony, perhaps a black tie formal vibe is right for you!”
2. Narrow your top options: These days, couples are bombarded with beautiful wedding images from sites like Pinterest. But Harrison says that after a certain point, buckling down and picking a few favorite decor styles is the way to be productive. “Your head is probably spinning with inspiration from magazines, Pinterest and Instagram, but at some point it’s time to step away from the iPad! Prioritize 2 or 3 styles that you’re most excited about and go from there,” she stated.
3. Build an IRL Pinterest board: To really narrow down your options, you’ll need to bust out your collage-making skills. “Build out your inspiration,” says Harrison. “Now, we know gorgeous, custom installations like Anna did are not in the cards for many brides, but simple inspiration boards can be done in a snap! Gather magazine cutouts, Internet printouts and invitation samples (these are often complementary from your stationer) that match each look and paste them to a simple board. This will help you take a step back and see how everything will come together and ultimately you can come to a decision.”
