The Hamptons was a trending wedding theme long before it was taken by Kourtney and Khloe. Renowned for its chic, fresh and pretty styling with a touch of coastal, The Hamptons has been popular with many a celebrity wedding, including Robert Downey Jr, Katie Couric and Hilary Rhoda.
If that’s not enough to convince you, we’ve visited Bells at Killcare, a wedding venue that’s a slice of Hamptons-magic in the NSW Central Coast and put together the five top reasons you need to consider a Hamptons-themed wedding this summer.
The Hamptons never goes out of fashion. Full stop.
2. It’s Budget Friendly
Hamptons styling doesn’t have to cost the world. If you opt for a Hamptons-themed venue, then you don’t need to spend big on styling, décor and furniture. If you’re feeling creative, you can also make your own Hamptons-themed decorations, the trick is to stick with clean, fresh and coastal colours.
3. Formal Vs. Casual
Not sure whether you want a formal or casual wedding? With Hamptons-styling, it doesn’t matter, because the theme can be tailored to suite both perfectly. Whether you want a garden wedding, complete with Jenga, croquet and bocce, or you’re lusting over an elegant three-course dinner, Hamptons styling is the ultimate in versatility.
4. It’s Not Seasonal
The Hamptons is a celebrity destination all year ‘round, meaning you can replicate the Hamptons theme for any season. For summer, opt for outdoor dining, pale blues, navy and cream; for winter, think warm open fires, navy, whites and tan colour palettes and thick furs.
5. The Photographs
Make your photographer’s job easy by styling the event beautifully. The prettier the back-drop, the easier it is to shoot; so opt for a venue with a killer backdrop and work with a theme that will pop.
