Before blowing your budget on a dress, venue, and centerpieces that aren’t you, take a look at these tips to help you choose a wedding style that is truly you.
In recent years we have seen how the world of weddings has evolved with things like photography, video, personalization, etc. More and more couples want their wedding to reflect who they are. Their goal is to make such an impression that their guests will know that theirs is the perfect wedding because it reflects who they are. Today I will cover some key concepts for you to consider when selecting your wedding style so that you will be able to have that effect on your guests.
Once the style is defined, it is much easier to think about what each aspect of the wedding should look like, such as the invitations, centerpieces, decorating style, photographs and video. To define the style of your wedding you must consider the following:
How to choose your wedding style: Remember previous weddings
We all have attended weddings that delighted us, and weddings where we liked almost nothing at all. Think about why you liked some and disliked others. See if you can identify those things that made those weddings special, and apply them to yours. For example, if you liked the different lounge or the snack areas at a friend’s wedding, maybe you could have a decorated living room at your wedding.
How to choose your wedding style: Consider the venue
When you choose your wedding style consider the venue’s characteristics and restrictions. Even before zeroing in on your space, close your eyes and imagine your wedding. If you envision your wedding on a New York rooftop or in an art gallery, chances are your wedding style leans more towards modern and elegant. If you envision a cabin in the woods, then a woodland setting or rustic boho wedding may be more to your liking. If outdoors in a garden, your style may fall more towards vintage and romantic.
Now consider this. You have already reserved a venue -and even paid a deposit on it- because of its rustic woodland charm, but your dream wedding has a shade of green that clashes with the deep red color of the carpet. Maybe now we need to choose a different wedding style. Another thing to take into account is the venue’s capacity. Small venues will lead to a more intimate wedding style.
How to choose your wedding style: Research online
If you don’t have a clear idea of the different wedding styles, let the internet be your ally. Find out what vintage-inspired, industrial or boho weddings are all about. Identify what appeals to you and don’t be afraid to mix it up. You can find a lot of inspiration and ideas for your wedding on Pinterest.
How to choose your wedding style: Be true to yourselves
As I said earlier, this is one of the main aspects that must be taken into account when choosing your wedding style. Try to have your big day reflect both your personalities. Think about your hobbies, what makes you unique, what you like and how you dress. These things can give you unique ideas to incorporate in your wedding. For example, if you like music, sports or books, these can be woven into your wedding theme or can even become the wedding theme itself. If your closet is full of modern, clean lines or packed with romantic and frilly outfits, you can explore similar fabrics and styles in bridal wear.
