Before blowing your budget on a dress, venue, and centerpieces that does not match your style, read 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 for their perfect wedding to reflect who they are as a couple and make an indelible impression on their guests.
Let’s cover some key concepts to consider when choosing your wedding style. Turn your wedding into an event no one will ever forget.
To define your wedding style, consider the following.
How to choose your wedding style: Remember other weddings
We all have attended weddings that delighted us, and weddings where we liked barely anything at all.
Think about the reasons why you liked some and disliked others. Can you identify those elements that made those weddings special? Then use them for yours. If you liked the different lounge or the snack areas at a friend’s wedding, maybe you could boast a decorated living room at yours.
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 at an art gallery, chances are your style leans more towards modern and elegant.
If you visualize 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.
But let’s say you’ve already reserved the venue -and even paid a non-refundable deposit for it- because you fell in love with its rustic woodland charm, but your dream wedding includes a shade of green that clashes with the deep red color of the venue’s carpet. Then it’s time to choose a different wedding style.
Another thing to take into account is the venue’s capacity. Smaller venues will lead to a more intimate wedding style.
How to choose your wedding style: Google it
If you don’t have a clear idea of the different wedding styles available, 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 also find loads of inspo and ideas for your wedding on Pinterest.
How to choose your wedding style: Be true to yourselves
This is a MUST to uniquely personalize your wedding.
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 amazing ideas to add to your wedding.
If you like music, sports or books, these can be woven into your wedding theme or it could even be the wedding theme itself. If your closet is full of modern, clean lines or packed with romantic and frilly outfits, explore similar fabrics, textures and styles in bridal wear.
