Find Your Wedding Style

With so much amazing visual content out there in the wedding arena it can be hard to work out exactly what you want your wedding to look like. Although the internet is an amazing tool for providing inspiration for wedding styling, sometimes we can get visually overloaded and end up more confused than when we started! So how do you go about deciding on your wedding style?

Decide on your wedding atmosphere

Think about what sort of atmosphere you would like for your wedding day. Are you thinking of a classic or traditional wedding with a formal reception? Maybe a relaxed beach wedding with a reception close by?  A hinterland wedding with the most incredible scenic views? Or perhaps a DIY celebration on a private property. Knowing what sort of atmosphere, you want to create will help you chose a wedding style to support your choice.

Start a Wedding Style Pinterest board.

As we mentioned, you can become a little overwhelmed with all that is available on the internet, but don’t look past Pinterest.  It really is the essence of wedding inspiration, so don’t be too quick to rule it out.

Create your wedding style Pinterest board and start pinning everything that inspires you.  Initially it may seem like a bit of a mishmash of ideas but as you continue to pin new pictures, you will see a particular style beginning to emerge.  Possibly there will be two or three similar styles that will eventually show one predominant style. Once the styles are evident you can start reducing your pins to include the particular elements you like the most.

Choosing a colour scheme

Choosing a colour for your wedding can be a little tricky. We suggest using colour pallets that have a number of different complimentary colours. A colour pallet will provide you with the ability to match bridesmaids’ dresses, décor and styling of both your ceremony and reception.  It also provides you with the ability to select seasonal fresh or artificial flowers.    

There are plenty of colour pallet inspiration boards on Pinterest.  A quick search of a few of your favourite colours + the word wedding after and see what comes up. Pin your favourites and see how they fit in with all your other favourite pins.

Be realistic about your wedding budget

It can be easy to become excited looking at all those beautiful images on the internet, but it is important to consider if the particular selections you love are within your budget. There is no point choosing a Luxe wedding theme if you just can’t afford it. If you are working on a tight budget, consider options you could DIY or look at styling options that can be easily taken from ceremony to reception.
