Another great theme for a wedding is a preppy theme. Lots of brides and grooms gravitate to a preppy styled wedding as it is made up of mostly traditional wedding ideas and trends with a slight preppy flare of course. So for those looking to create the perfect preppy day here are some great ideas that will get you ready to walk down the aisle and say “I do!”

The Venue
The perfect preppy ceremony site is a chapel. Their simplistic charm provides the perfect canvas for you to add your own preppy flare. Want to add even more prep? Find a chapel with historical significance or connection like the Charlottesville UVA Chapel. 
The Bride
When choosing your wedding dress for a preppy wedding think classic lines and pearls. You want something elegant, timeless and above all else something that will look great with your pearls. And don’t worry about needing something blue on your wedding day. Just add your new monogram in blue to the inside of your wedding dress.

The Groom
Your groom does not have to wear a tux for this preppy styled wedding. A Khaki suit is perfect for a spring or summer preppy affair. Just don’t forget your boat shoes for the reception!
The Colors
When it comes to choosing a preppy color palette for your wedding there really is no right answer. Start with navy and the choice is yours for choosing your complementing color as everything looks great with navy. I love pairing navy with pinks, peaches or light greens.

The Accessories
For even more preppy style take your wedding colors and find them in seersucker or stripped fabric for your bouquet wrap, groomsmen ties, sashes and linens. You can’t get any more preppy than seersucker!
The Monogram
For any preppy lover out you know that there is nothing that you can’t monogram. This is the perfect occasion to try out your new monogram on everything for your wedding day. You can have it stitched onto your veil, the inside of your dress, piped onto the cake, give your guests monogrammed cookie favors, and monogram your beverage napkins for the bar. The real question is what are you not going to monogram?

The Standout Detail
If you have a truly preppy reception venue you will have an outdoor area (preferably by the water). Take advantage of the grassy area by having lawn games for your guests to enjoy playing. Favorites like croquet and cornhole are two everyone will enjoy.
