Are you planning your dream wedding? If you are, creating a vision board helps you see and organize your wedding ideas. It ensures your special day reflects your unique relationship. This guide will walk you through the steps it takes to make an amazing wedding vision board! Plus, a comprehensive list of what you should consider when creating your board.
Step 1: Find Your Vision:
Before looking for ideas online, think about what's important and special to both of you as a couple. Consider your personal preferences and the style that shows who you are as a couple. This self-discovery will help create the foundation for narrowing down the aesthetic and vibe of your wedding.
Step 2: Collect Inspiration:
Once you've identified your general vision direction, it's time to gather inspiration. Explore online platforms, such as Pinterest and Instagram, to discover themes, colors, and styles that resonate with you. Choose a theme that resonates with your personalities and interests.
Step 3: Fine Tuning:
Now that you know what you like, it's time to refine your vision. Think about specific details like the ceremony aisle, reception tables, and what the wedding party will wear. Choose colors that go well with your theme and make everything look coordinated.
Remember to think about your venue & consider the weather too! Make sure your design matches the building and vibe of the place and that the flowers you choose are in season. Making everything blend in is essential, thus creating a smooth and beautiful experience.
