From the moment you received happy news of your engagement, you’ve probably had many questions. What will be the date for my big day? What will be my color scheme? What type of dress do I want? Before you can answer these questions, you may want to come up with a general idea of the type and style of wedding you’re looking for. Here are some tips to make it easy and fun:
Look at Photos
Start by perusing wedding photos and saving the ones that excite you. Then, look at your saved photos and find some common ground between them. Are there certain colors you gravitate toward? Or do the photos all come from weddings at a specific venue type?
Casual or Formal
One of the decisions you will need to make is if you want a casual or formal wedding. Do you picture your guests wearing long gowns and tuxes in a grand ballroom or having a picnic-style reception outside - or something in between?
Is there a particular venue where you have always dreamed of getting married? Or even just a type of venue that you like - a beach, garden, ballroom or historic inn, perhaps? The venue you choose is the first step to deciding on your wedding style. Think about the type of wedding that would best fit with your ideal venue - a beach wedding calls for a more casual feel, while a wedding at a historic inn could be more vintage-inspired.
Talk It Out
Sit down with your fiancé and have a discussion about how each of you imagine your wedding day. Write down a list of adjectives that describe your ideal wedding, then compare lists. Try to find common ground and come up with a final list of "wedding adjectives" to share with vendors as you meet them.
Once you have decided on your wedding style, it’s important to stay focused, especially when dealing with your vendors. Make a decision and stick with it for your own sanity! Looking to get started finding your style? Check out our wedding ideas that will inspire you!
