There’s just something about a luxury wedding that takes your breath away, from the very first glimpse of the ceremony to the grand affair that is the reception. Opulent weddings are nothing new, but it’s not everyday that you see a celebration that employs an abundance of lush greenery or thousands of candles lighting up the night.

Whether you’re in the throes of planning your nuptials or the Big Day is still a distant idea, these luxury details are sure to give you some major wedding FOMO.

Between the mirrored tables, elegant florals, and crystals dripping from the ceiling, this Moroccan fête is sure to drop jaws. The dance floor shines under the glitter of an ornate chandelier and the glitter of the crystals – a perfect sight from the sweetheart table!

This woodland ceremony is an ethereal dream come true. Lush thickets and vines intertwine to create this natural façade – you would never even guess that these doors led to a grand tent!

Who said a traditional hotel wedding can’t be extraordinary? This pretty-in-pink ballroom is filled with blooms, from dazzling white and pink orchids to the cherry blossom plants. And how about those chair ruffles?

Does it get any more luxurious than this seven-tier wedding cake? This ivory beauty is embellished with gold accents and overflows with cream roses and hydrangeas for a truly breathtaking effect.

Remember – you don’t need the grandest, most elegant details to have the best day of your life. That being said, a few luxury upgrades never hurt anyone!
