For minimalist vibes and timeless, elegant styling, we can’t go past a monochromatic white-on-white palette! If you’re drawn to simplicity and sophistication for a luxe wedding reception, this modern look is incredibly easy to implement and perfectly suited for clear marquees, industrial halls or light-filled indoor spaces.
From furniture selections to floral design, keep reading for our guide on styling a white-on-white wedding, including some monochromatic inspiration to get you started.
White on White: Furniture and Decor
It’s all about simplicity for a white-on-white setting! Opt for a pared back palette of crisp whites layered with subtle shades of soft creams, pale greys and taupes. Earthy materials like timber and rattan work well as your base, along with a hint of copper, gold or silver for a modern luxe look.
Choosing furniture and decor to bring this palette to life is super simple. For your ceremony, incorporate a statement backdrop (we love our white Linear backdrop or round Soho arbour), paired with white seating. For cocktail hour, we love our Indie lounges in natural and white, or our Dune collection for something more relaxed and coastal. Bring in some gold and marble accents with our Icelandic dry bars for a luxurious feel, or opt for timber dry bars and classic bentwood stools for a more low-key look.
For a sit-down reception, pair our timber tables with white bentwoods or Soho wire dining chairs, and layer your tablescapes with delicate flowing linens, soft white napkins, white dinner plates and copper or gold cutlery.

White on White: Florals and Styling
Continue the monochromatic vibe with your florals by incorporating minimalist bunches of crisp white blooms in varying styles – from orchids to roses to delicate sprigs of babies breath. These work beautifully in clear or ceramic vases along your tables, or as statement arrangements for your bar. You can choose to keep things simple and refined, or break up the white with some dried foliage, golden magnolia leaves, vibrant greenery or pastel accents.
Keep your stationery simple with elegant calligraphy on textured paper, with metallic accents to tie the look together. We also love this palette paired with earthy materials like ceramics, terrazzo, marble, terracotta, leather or stone. Complete your setting with some statement pendant lighting or glowing candles for a warm and intimate ambience!
