Oscar inspired wedding...Sarah Jessica Parker Chanel Dress.

Inspiration can come from everywhere, even the red carpet.
When seeing a fashion icon like Sarah Jessica Parker wearing a grecian inspired Chanel dress, I knew that dress was a inspiration board waiting to happen.

Yellow is making a strong comeback as a primary color in a wedding. It is no longer a "spring only" color , or used with a pastel palette. Yellow makes a bold statement and can still have a modern edge when paired with great neutrals like gold and silver. For a Grecian inspired wedding I would keep modern lines like square reception tables with silver linens, almost mimicking the shape and color of a Chanel #5 perfume bottle.
I would use more ornate decor like Urns for ceremony flowers and to accent the bars and cocktail tables. For flowers I would use yellow and white orchids and calla lilies as the primary flower. I would also use figs and fig leaves to accent decor.

Gold and silver gilding in the decor will really make the grecian theme pop. This gilding can be used in chargers, linens and cake details, as well as jewelry for the wedding party.

Escort Cards could be a fun was to continue the Chanel, Grecian theme. Escort cards could be square with gilded text must like the label on a Chanel #5 bottle. Table number could be written like on Chanel #5, or named after cities in Greece. The escort card table itself, could be square with a large centerpiece made of a ornate urn full of fig tree branches and accented with orchids and figs.

Guest would truly feel they were at a red carpet with all the glitz and glamor that goes with it.
