Wedding Planning Essentials: Introducing {Inspired by Color}

inspired-by-colour-header

 

I seem to be excited a lot these days. And a great deal of that is because of all the new creative content I’ve had the pleasure of pulling together for the revamped ‘The Details’ wedding blog. And today is no different. Today marks the start of sharing custom color story boards, boards that are meant to get your creative juices flowing as you plan your own personal wedding design. Pulling together seemingly unrelated elements that combine to tell a story that inspires emotion is a creative activity that I adore. So yet again, I’m very excited!

Inspired by this first for the blog, I’ve selected a spring palette to kick things off. Featuring calm taupes and subtle greys to reflect the quiet awakening of life all around, and soft pinks and mint greens to represent the prettiness of the transition from winter to spring, this c0lor story is all about new beginnings.

3 Easy Steps to a Simple {and Enjoyable} Wedding Planning Experience

If wedding statistics are correct and December is in fact the most popular month to get engaged, I have a feeling there are a lot of brides out there right now, iPads in hand, magazines laid out, and brows furrowed, not knowing where to begin the oh so daunting wedding planning process. If you’re one of those brides then this post should not be missed! What follows is a breakdown of the planning process into three key steps, paving the way for an easy and enjoyable wedding planning experience.

Wedding Planning – Step 1: Start with You.

The best place to begin your planning journey is with you (and your groom of course!). Consider your personal styles and the things that appeal to you most. From fashion, to favourite colors, even your home décor, basing your wedding design on who you are will make the planning process a natural one.

Wedding Planning – Step 2: Go Big. Then Get Serious!  

The start of the planning process is where you want to take the opportunity to soak in all the possibilities. Start with the big picture and using all available wedding planning resources, print magazines, Pinterest, even other brides, pull together every single idea that catches your eye. But only allow yourself to do so for a few weeks. Then it’s time to get serious!

Pouring over all the options you’ll very quickly find repeating design concepts and color palettes. When you do, commit to the things that pull you in most and set aside those that, although lovely, muddle things up. It’s a big world of inspiration out there, with plenty of options. Committing to your wedding design early on avoids a lot of unnecessary stress.

Wedding Planning – Step 3: Refine and Personalize.  

Now that you know what you want there’s nothing stopping you from going after all the little details you need to pull your wedding design together. Start the sourcing, booking and buying early on. It’s the details that infuse you and your hubby-to-be into the event. They personalize your wedding in such a way that it can only be yours. The last thing you want to do is leave these essential details to the end of your planning process.

That’s it. It’s really that simple. No Step 4! That doesn’t mean that the planning process isn’t a big time investment that requires commitment. But if you approach it the right way from the start, your wedding planning journey is guaranteed to be an incredible one.
