Tarzan and Jane
Go wild and book the Trinity River Audubon Center for expansive vistas, chirping birds, incredible wildlife, and 120 acres suited to every possible seating arrangement. Catering partner Bolsa Mercado keeps the party going with local, sustainable, and organic cuisine, plus some pretty killer cocktails.

Adam and Eve
The original fashion icons. Wear your own modern-day fig leaf: a coveted Vera Wang. Head to the designer’s trunk show at Warren Barrón (April 11-14). For mothers of the bride and groom, let Allie-Coosh make them the next-best-dressed women in the room.

Scarlett and Rhett
You give a damn; you really do. So show a little Southern hospitality and charm. Dallas chefs Stephan Pyles and Kent Rathbun both have catering divisions that wow. Or up the comfort factor with a hamburger reception from Twisted Root Burger Co. Even better, owner Jason Boso is ordained to perform the ceremony.

Elton and David
Hooray for the nontraditional. While some insist on tried-and-true tiers of ivory buttercream, you opt for more pizzazz. Fluffpop gourmet cotton candy can be sprinkled with edible glitter if organic pomegranate spun sugar isn’t quite enough. Send everyone home with a box of hand-painted bonbons from Chocolate Secrets.

Barack and Michelle
They’ve got the best address in the country and know how to throw a memorable bash. The soon-to-open Chapel at Ana Villa with its old-world ballroom and Spanish-inspired chapel is worthy of an inaugural ball.

William and Kate
Channel the UK’s most beloved pair with floral creations that have a heavy dose of British whimsy. The flagship Timothy Oulton showroom is known for its liberal use of the Union Jack in home decor, but the best-kept secret is its wildly imaginative floral department for everything from bouquets to centerpieces guests will want to take home.

It’s one for the books.
