Uncover Your Wedding Style
Finding that perfect wedding style
Now that you’re engaged, it’s probably time to start considering your wedding style. I know it sounds overwhelming, but there’s no time like the present! Keep in mind that all good things take time. So no more spending countless hours searching for table settings, color schemes or flowers. Take a deep breath and follow our four-step approach.
STYLE TIP ONE: HI PINTEREST, I THINK I'LL TAKE A RAINCHECK
I know, this sounds like madness, but trust me when I say that it needs to happen. Pinterest is an incredible resource, but it can often become paralyzing and prevent you from making decisions, or worse, lead you to pinning ideas that aren’t you.
Stay true to yourself, set aside the season’s trends and keep your values and traditions nearby. Find inspiration in your life and determine what is most important.
STYLE TIP TWO: PERSONAL STYLE IS INVALUABLE
Look to your home and wardrobe for inspiration. Your collection of accessories, shoes, handbags, etc. can tell you more about your style than all of the resources available online.
Style is who you are, how you live and how you dress. Do you like romantic, soft textures? Bright and modern details? Vintage, retro pieces? Or all of the above? Define your style and the rest will fall into place. You know what makes an impression and what patterns or colors speak to you. Don’t be afraid to be experimental, if you like certain details don’t be afraid to push the envelope.
REAL TALK: Look to your partner’s style as well. This day is about the two of you, and should reflect it.
STYLE TIP THREE: DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF FORMALITY
Are you interested in a black tie affair or a more casual informal gathering? The setting you envision for your wedding will help you decide. Outdoor weddings encompass a laid-back feeling while banquet halls set the tone for a more formal approach.
Determine the kind of atmosphere you would like to present to your guests and whether or not it aligns with the venue you had in mind. Last but not least, make sure to use your formality assessment in all aspects of your wedding such as favors, invitations, table settings, and so forth. Consistency is important.
