Make sure the wedding reflects who you are as a couple as opposed to what’s on trend or other people’s expectations.
Try to add a bit of uniqueness to the event as it makes it more personal and an event that reflects you both.
Your wedding venue will help determine the style of wedding, for example if you are drawn to a country location with an older style building then a rustic theme would suit. If you are wanting an inner city wedding in a modern venue then you may want to focus on strong colour palette or a highlight colour.
It is important that you select colours that compliment the venue. This will avoid clashes of colour and create more of an impact.
Pinterest is a great way to create an online mood board for all your ideas, eventually you will start to get an idea of the style that you like, the colours that you are drawn to or the kind of venue that appeals to you.
The location of the venue also dictates how much work is involved for the big day, if you are looking for a unique location then be aware this will involve a lot more work than an established wedding venue. Hiring a wedding planner /stylist can save you countless hours of preparation and means you can sit back relax and enjoy the day.
Wedding Stylists offer different levels of styling from an hourly rate, “the day of the wedding” styling or a full wedding package. It will depend on whether you already have strong ideas on what you want the day to look like and need someone to help execute your vision or you have no idea and want someone to create the event from scratch.
Prop hire is a great way to create a unique event without blowing the budget, create a themed wedding by add interesting bits of furniture and décor, this is a great option for the DIY couple and saves time and money. No scouring through thrift shops or getting stuck with odd bits of furniture after the wedding!
