How to style your wedding 

With likes of Pinterest and wedding blogs with a plethora of images to entice you, most couples are overwhelmed on where to start. As a couple, you have to firstly decide what is important to you. Is it the aesthetics, the feel, the food or even the music? Choose at least three elements and base them as priorities as you begin your styling brainstorm.

Where to get started?

Use your styling to tell your story or reflect your personality into your big day. Do you have a favourite memory or past time you can draw on? Can you use elements from where and how you got engaged? Do you both share a passion that you want to share with your guests?
Pinterest is a good place to get your creative juices flowing but remember all the things you like may not come together as one cohesive concept. That’s ok, your wedding mood board will be an ever changing working progress. You will eventually be able to filter out what doesn’t go with your overall styling theme and once you relate that back to what you considered as important, you should then have your design concept narrowed down.
Draw inspiration from your surroundings from magazines to films and even other weddings you have attended. Always keep and open mind because you don’t know where your light bulb moment will come from.
  • Venue is probably your biggest canvas so work with that and use it as a guidance. Enhance on existing features and use the space to your advantage. Ask to see a portfolio of previous weddings to get an idea of what you can or can’t do.
  • Colour palette is also important and it is ideal to have a few dominant tones enhanced by ascent colours which tend to be more neutral tones. Six should give you enough flexibility to play with.
  • Don’t fall in the trap of trends unless you actually like and want it at your wedding, then in that case go all out!
  • When it comes to flowers bare in mind what is available in the season.
  • Create a style board or look book to see your vision come together.
Remember you can ask suppliers for advice, they will have the knowledge to let you know what works and what doesn’t.
