Today’s modern War and Peace wedding inspiration comes right on the heels of the latest telling of Tolstoy’s tale of Russian aristocracy. The stunning adaptation of the Lifetime miniseries adaptation of War & Peace offers a beautiful take on the opulence of Napoleonic Russia that can be used to help inspire your winter wedding. These looks can be translated into bridal style with luxurious detailing, from a vintage beaded gown to a sparkling table set with candles and crystal, and a cool palette of shades of silver and dusk blue.
For an extra dose of luxe, consider some of these lavish pieces reminiscent of Russia’s 19th-century high society. It’s all about fur, lace and that kind of ice!
