I did say I hate talking about money but now that I’ve started, let’s continue shall we? Today I want to discuss wedding day decor and what it cost. For many couples, this is high on their wedding planning list. I’ve never met a couple that didn’t want their wedding to be beautiful in their eyes. But what I’ve also learned over the years, the cost of wedding day decor is always a sticker shock moment no matter the size of the wedding budget.
I hate talking about money. I don’t like it doing it in my personal life, in business or with my clients. But we are grown ups and we have to adult right? So Let’s Do This! The dreaded wedding budget conversation.
The easiest way to level up your wedding design is one simple trick; Change Your Floor Plan! Gone are the days of placing round tables in a room with space for a dance floor. A unique floor plan goes a long way when designing your wedding. It can give the wedding venue a completely new look. This will ensure your event is not like the others.
Sweetheart table designs have been become the highlight of a wedding. It’s one of my favorite parts of a wedding to design because it is the special place for the couple to spend their wedding reception. Whenever I can add special touch to a sweetheart table, I do it because this is personal for the newly married couple. It is the place you will share your first meal as newlyweds so it should be AMAZING.
Choosing your color palette is a big decision for couples planning their wedding. Do you go trendy? Do use your favorite color? Do you try to match your venue? How does one make this decision? Here’s how you do it; pick the color you want and make it work for you. You may have to make adjustments but you can make it work. There are many ways to incorporate your color story into your wedding details besides the floral design. Change your table linens, adding details to your wedding day stationery and even using your wedding party attire. Don’t be afraid of color. If you’re not sure how to design your wedding color story, seek inspiration from Pinterest (my absolute favorite social media app) or simply seek professional help. Not a plug just saying, LOL!
Pinterest is by far my favorite social media tool. Whenever I have free moment, the first app I open is Pinterest. For many brides, this is also the tool they use the most when planning their wedding. So much inspiration and ideas right at your fingertips. Now I love Pinterest for personal use but when it comes to my clients, I have a love/hate relationship. All the things I love about Pinterest, turn on me. All that inspiration can have a bride planning 5 different style weddings leaving me with a headache.
Last week I talked about Wedding Trends for 2019 so I thought I’d keep the party going and talk about my favorite part of wedding planning, DESIGN!!
The design of your wedding is probably number 2 or 3 on your wedding planning priority list. It usually goes Venue, Dress (or suit) then wedding design. Some brides know what they want before the ring even comes honestly. If you are looking for inspiration for your dream wedding, let me give you some of the wedding trends for 2019
It’s the 4th quarter of 2018 which means if you are getting married in 2019 you are in full planning mode. You’ve probably booked your wedding venue since 2017 or early 2018. You’ve chosen your wedding dress or dresses. You booked a couple of your wedding vendors. And you’re probably driving your wedding party crazy with all your pinterest ideas. Isn’t it fun!!
Since 2019 will be here before we know it, I thought I would start the blog off with wedding trends I predict for 2019 to add that little something to your wedding that just may have been missing.
