3 STEPS TO CREATING YOUR DREAM WEDDING STYLE
1. Create a mood board
Some of you may already have in your mind exactly what style/theme you would like for your big day, others may have a number of different styles in mind and be struggling to come to a decision. Sometimes it can be difficult to decide on a specific style, there are so many gorgeous ideas out there! Try to choose elements that reflect you as a couple and your personality. If you can pinpoint your desired theme it gives you and your suppliers the foundations to base your wedding design around, what better way to do this than to create a mood board!? Pull together some elements you’ve seen on pintrest, your favourite wedding blogs, wherever you find inspiration, this way you can visualise your concept with more clarity.

2. Choose your colour palette
As with interiors, fashion, art, colours play a huge part in setting the tone and mood for your wedding. It can often be difficult not to choose too many colours and to keep your selections in order to make sure they don’t get too visually overwhelming. We would suggest sticking to no more than 4 colours, this will allow you to create a much more cohesive style not to mention your wedding photos reflecting the style you have chosen and looking amazing!
We would recommend choosing a couple of neutral colours then one or two feature colours that can be incorporated in certain elements and smaller details (i.e teal stationery and napkins) Once you are happy with your selected colours, why not add an extra pop of colour to your florals!? This will add even more depth to your overall style.
Above we have chosen some muted autumnal colours with a deeper, bolder teal which would be perfect to create more interest to an autumnal theme.
3. Match your style to your venue
Your venue plays a big part in selecting your wedding style. Styling an industrial, rustic looking warehouse with chair covers and pink sashes with lavish, glitzy centrepieces isn’t going to be the best choice from a style point of view.
If a venue has a lot of bare brick, industrial style elements would work great, if there’s a lot of timber, it would work well with a rustic style. A venue with luxe chandeliers and a much more ‘grand’ feel to it would suit a more glamourous theme.
