First off, I have to say~ Happy “woulda been” birthday to the fabulous Coco Chanel! You forever changed the fashion world and taught us all the value of a good strand of pearls! From here into eternity, the world is just a little more classy because of you.
We gave our readers the option to chime in on what they wanted to “pick our brains” about. One faithful follower, Brittiny, wanted to know- “How do you bring a certain theme together without making it appear cliche?” So what better time than now to bring two of our favorite things together- themes and Chanel. In this post, we will show you how to master a Coco Chanel inspired wedding without being “literal” or “cliché”. And for those of you who like literal and cliché, we’ll throw some of that in here too! There’s nothing wrong with either style~ just a matter of opinion! Chanel herself did say, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different!” So we urge you to step outside of your Pinterest box and BE DIFFERENT!
Let’s pay homage to a few celebrity Chanel brides, first, so we can all be jealous and move right along!
If you’re going to go with a short and flirty look like Keira, might we suggest you pair it with a Chanel-inspired statement necklace?
Or you may be looking for a literal “Chanel” pearl look. Then, something like this would work for you:
As far as your flowers are concerned, our PERSONAL favorite would be a customized bouquet from our dear friend at Bridal Brooch Bouquets!
We all know YOU are the star on your wedding day (duh), but, there are a couple other special ladies that will be twinkling right beside you. Bridesmaids. Your besties. Let’s not stick them in a frock that Coco would just DIE over, and NOT in a good way. Instead, let’s stick to the colors that embody Ms. Chanel herself and go with something along these lines:
Find this bridesmaids dress here! You can even get your bridesmaids smaller brooch bouquets as featured above! *SWOON*
Reception décor. It. is. EVERYTHING. It tells your guests what kind of bride you are. It sets the mood for your entire wedding. A simple mix of pink, coral, white flowers with blush, black, and white accents is the perfect way to achieve “Chanel” without throwing the Chanel logo on everything!
Now, if you’re a little more adventurous and bold, you may opt for inspiration such as this:

At the end of the day, just remember:
We hope you enjoyed this classy and fabulous post! If you have a wedding theme and aren’t quite sure how to execute it~ We’re your girls! XOXO, Two Belles
