There is an overwhelming amount of designs, styles, colour choices for your wedding; magazines, blogs and of course Pinterest. You see all of these amazing picture perfect weddings and feel overwhelmed by the idea of what to do at your wedding. If you don’t have a clear plan you will end up with a mishmash of a bunch of things that don’t make any sense. Here are a few tips to get you pointed in the right direction so your wedding reflects your couple style and has a clear style.
1. Look at your closets & home decor.
What colours to you see pop up over and over again in your home and closet? Are you a neutral tone, black and white, or is there one colour that so obviously stands out it’s silly even to ask? That’s a great starting point.
2. Look at your venue.
Make sure that your wedding style matches the venue style you’ve booked. Choosing to do a rustic boho style wedding in a modern hotel ballroom probably wouldn’t go well together.
3. Focus on florals.
Visit a flower market and see which flowers you love. Your floral style can make your reception. Think of flowers to me the “perfect shoe” of your reception. Are you going to wear ugly work boots under your dress? I don’t think so. That perfect pair of shoes is the only great accessory you need for your wedding dress. Same with your flowers, picking some amazing (in your taste) flowers will set the tone of your room and style.
4. Set the tone with your invitations.
Pinterest is a great place to see some amazing wedding stationary. The invitation is the first thing that guests are going to see about your wedding. Picking an invitation that matches your wedding style will set the tone for your wedding. It will tell your guests what type of wedding they can expect, and in turn help them pick out their outfits for your wedding, and really bring everything together!
5. Talk to a decorator.
No matter the budget it’s great to talk to a wedding decorator (different than a wedding planner) to discuss how you can bring all of the pieces of your wedding style together into one cohesive style. Decorators/designers will have a huge inventory of items you can rent, from candles to table numbers, most will even come and put it all together for you.
