The style of your wedding is very personal to you, who you are as a couple and your likes and dislikes. So, let me help you to identify your wedding style with my top 3 tips!
1. Identify Your Loves
Write a list of the things you love – your hobbies, colours you love, favorite restaurants, favorite tipple, days out, holiday destinations etc.
Now discuss what you enjoy about each of these. Is it the social aspect, time with friends and family, the style of food, the smells, the ambience, the way it makes you feel? Whatever it may be make a note of it.
Now start to consider which of these details you might like to incorporate into your wedding, how they represent your personalities and the things you love. Your wedding is personal to you and these fundamentals will be crucial in building the foundations of your wedding style.
2. Identify Your Dislikes
You’ve probably been to a couple of weddings by now, have scrolled through various wedding blogs and Pinterest and probably have a pretty good idea of what you don’t like.
So, what I want you to do now is discuss what elements you didn’t like about the weddings you’ve attended? What you would do different and why? What would of improved your experience? This is a real eye opener and will really start to give you a foundation to work from (believe me, you’ll have some strong opinions on this one!)
Now go through your ever growing Pinterest board and think about what draws your eye? What colour are you loving? What themes crop up time and time again? What’s the overall mood of the images you seem to be pinning? Is everything bright and light or is it more cosy and autumnal etc.?
It is so important to consider what you don’t like just as much as what you do like. Making sure you are both on the same page throughout your wedding planning will help making joint decisions a lot easier. Yes, you probably won’t agree on everything, but if you build a good foundation now and discuss the elements you both love and dislike, then it will make your wedding planning a lot smoother.
3. Your Venue & Season
Start by thinking about what season you want to get married in. Why have you chosen this season? Is it beacuse you love the colours, the flowers, the darker nights or that it’s lighter for longer? What is it that draws you to this season?
Now consider your venue. The venue you choose has a surprising impact on your style and décor, as well as the ambience and feel of your day. Your venue sets the tone for your whole day so, whatever you do don’t underestimate how important this is to get right!
Identifying your wedding style can feel like a big task, but believe me once you have a clear vision of the direction you want to take with this, everything will slot into place. You’ll find it easier to identify which suppliers you would like to work with and how you want your day to feel and the experience you want your guests to have.
