Celebrity weddings are often a great source of ideas and style inspiration for brides. While we can’t all throw weddings with six or seven figure price tags, most star weddings have some beautiful ideas than can easily be adapted for weddings with more typical budgets. These are some ideas on how to design a wedding inspired by Drew Barrymore‘s recent wedding celebration.

The Location:

Start by choosing a beautiful outdoor location for your nuptials. Drew’s wedding was on her multi-million dollar estate, but you could just as easily rent the grounds of an historic mansion for the day to get the same effect. Pretty pink flowers were the main decoration for her backyard wedding. With a lush bouquet of hot pink peonies and pretty pink garden roses, you can have a bouquet just like Drew’s.

The Wedding Dress:

Leading up to the wedding, the biggest question was what would Drew Barrymore’s wedding dress look like. Ultimately the pregnant bride chose a custom Chanel gown made from pleated organza and muslin. Her gown had a jewel neckline with a dramatic ruffle around it and three quarter length sleeves. The skirt had tulle and feather flowers on it, and a black sash at the waist completed the couture creation. While the typical bride will not be ordering Chanel couture, there are certainly some lovely wedding gowns available with sleeves these days. Or choose a strapless dress and wear a fitted bolero with three quarter sleeves and a ruffle neckline over it. Add a black ribbon to the waist of your gown, and the look will be fabulous. Substitute glamorous cz bridal jewelry for her Chanel diamonds, and you will be gorgeous!

The Food:

The food at Drew Barrymore’s wedding sounded great. The reception started with fancy appetizers and lobster rolls. Dinner was family style with steak and fried chicken (you didn’t expect Drew to do anything stuffy, did you?). These are easy things to incorporate into your own wedding, and certain to be crowd pleasers. Dinner was served with a custom label wine; instead of buying your own vineyard, simply order small bottles of wine with custom labels for your wedding favors. She ended the reception with a visit from a food truck, a popular wedding trend that many regular brides can emulate.

The Music:

The music at Drew Barrymore’s reception was a 1980s cover band, which sounds like great fun. What really made it work, though, is that it reflected her personal style and taste. So if you and your fiance love bluegrass, hire a bluegrass band. Or hire a band that covers heavy metal power ballads if that is your taste; the point is that any great wedding reflects the personalities of the bride and groom. So even though you can borrow great ideas from a celebrity wedding, always remember to infuse your event with your own unique style as well.
