Planning your perfect day
Everyone knows the importance of planning a wedding. A wedding couldn’t happen without planning! You want your day flow smoothly and seamlessly and for everything to fall into place like a fairytale (well we can dream!) and that needs a carefully thought out plan.
There’s a lot to do: sending out invitations, ordering your flowers, putting together your table and seating plans, deciding on menus and catering, ordering your wedding cake, choosing your wedding favours, decorations, bridesmaid dresses, rings…oh and then there’s the most important thing, the dress! There’s a lot to think about, it’ll take a long time and you probably have a lot of different ideas about what you want. But of course you want it all to come together into a picture perfect day that you’ve always dreamt of. That’s why planning your wedding style before you start planning your wedding is so important, if you want it all to come together into a wedding you can be proud of. Think of it like a creative project, like you’re decorating your new house or you’re directing a photoshoot – you want everything to look coordinated and not just randomly thrown togethr.
Start with some inspiration…
The best weddings I’ve been to were the ones that felt like everything was thought about – there was an underlying theme that brought everything together and made everything feel like it was chosen for a reason, and that made it feel special. The theme might reflect something about the couple – about their shared interests or where they met, or may simply be a reflection of their shared taste. Think about what your inspiration might be…perhaps the wedding location/venue will be the start, or somewhere significant in your love story – the seaside, a festival, a rock concert…
Decide on a theme…
When trying to decide on your theme look for inspiration from the latest wedding trends or be inspired by something you and your partner loves – it can be as subtle or as obvious as you want. If you share special memories in a special place maybe that could be the inspiration –
A theme might simply be a rustic countryside wedding. If you decided on this theme you would ensure that everything fit from the flowers, to the cake, to the decorations and perhaps even your dress. And with a theme for your wedding chosen from the start, you can begin to set the tone for your wedding from the moment you send out your Save the Dates. So you might choose a rustic, floral design printed on textured paper to represent the look and feel of your wedding…rather than a minimalistic modern design.
Pinterest is the perfect place to start putting some inspiration together and I have made some boards for some popular wedding themes.
