How to find your
Many couples come to me with a Pinterest board full of ideas, but when I look at it I see 3 or 4 different styles; and some don’t even compliment the venue. They booked a regal vintage hotel but all their pins are boho chic….?! Also once we start discussing the vision, the photos seem so far off from what they say they want! I often view Pinterest as a curse because it causes couples more confusion than clarity, and I can’t blame them! So today I will give some professional advice on how to find your wedding style.
Compliments your personal style
When you start searching for your dream venue and envision your wedding, try to remember who you are in every day life, what are your likes and dislikes? Do you like vintage or modern? Industrial or rustic? Use your current living space, wardrobe and interest to draw on your wedding day style. Although this is a unique and a once in a life time day, you still want it to reflect you as individuals and as a couple. Guest who attend your event should see decor and touches that are “so you”.
Don’t Pin everything you see
Now that you’ve narrowed down a wedding style, stick to it! Try and avoid the distraction by veering off the chosen look and feel. You’re just going to cause yourself stress and confusion. I see it all the time, the couple has decided they love rustic but than they come across a modern minimalist Pinterest board and start questioning every decision they’ve ever made!! Stop torturing yourself! Stick to what you fell in love with originally and if you’re still really drawn to the other look incorporate small touches without doing a complete overhaul! Remember it’s your wedding and if you want a modern, rustic, boho wedding…. we won’t stop you! We’re here to help how to find your wedding style.
Compliment the venue
Choosing the date and venue are the first big decisions your going to make when planning your wedding. So, make sure the room you choose and the surrounding grounds compliment the overall vision. You want the venue to compliment your style and contribute to the overall look. Don’t choose a space that needs a complete overhaul and will cost a fortune to transform from warehouse industrial to garden chic. The goal is to find a space that has the overall aesthetic and feel so that you can focus on the details and ways to make it “you”.
