So, you’re newly engaged, you’ve spent weeks basking in that wonderful post-engagement blur and you can’t wait to start thinking about your wedding day. But where do you start? No, we’re not talking about the planning and logistics (we can take complete care of that for you, leave it to the experts at Aleeka Events). We’re talking all about your wedding day style and design.
It’s important that you have an initial concept of how you would like your wedding day to look before you begin the planning process, and this is the best way to ensure you have a day that reflects you and your love story. It will also help to ease the stress of planning as you will know exactly what you’re doing and what you will need to recreate this vision. Considering the creative design for your wedding day is certainly something you need to do before you start thinking about your aisle style, booking your bridal blooms or sampling your wedding breakfast. You need to look at the overall concept, mood and design that you want for your day and as modern wedding planners, we are here to help you discover that.
First things first, it’s time to start daydreaming, or in other words, get on Pinterest and start feeling inspired! You will also be able to gather inspiration from wedding magazines, blogs and even social media platforms, in particular Instagram. You may also find inspiration elsewhere, whether that’s interior trends, fabrics, textures and even fashion! We plan style-led celebrations for modern couples at Aleeka Events, therefore we like to create a mood-board to showcase your favourite ideas as it enables us to bring your vision to life.
The first phase is the imaginative one, where you can get really creative and start envisioning your big day. Sit down together and consider what you want from your wedding day. Do you want it to be extravagant and lavish? Perhaps you’d like it to be understated and elegant? Do you want to be an intimate affair or a huge celebration? It’s also important to think about the season you’d like to tie the knot and the location – whether that’s close to home or a dreamy destination setting. The style of your wedding will influence your choice of wedding venue as you want them both to work together effortlessly to create an unforgettable day.
It’s time to get specific. If you have a few different design concepts in mind, narrow them down and choose one that you both adore. It’ll be easier to source suppliers and make decisions with just one style, otherwise you will end up switching between the different choices and it will end up looking a little disjointed. You may have to compromise, so take your time to consider each concept and choose one!
You may not want to have a particular colour palette or wedding theme but it’s worth thinking about the colours that you’d like to use throughout your wedding day as it will ultimately affect a number of elements. From your wedding flowers to your bridesmaid dresses, you want the colours to work together beautifully. Think about the shades that you’ve always loved and the colours that you are drawn to as a couple – would they fit in with the feel of your wedding day? If you can’t choose just one colour, we suggest choosing a main shade with one or two accent hues that complement it. Whether you opt for a metallic, neutral, feminine or bold colour palette, make sure it’s the perfect pick for your day.
The design and concept of your wedding is essentially like branding for your big day. You want every single detail to tie in together flawlessly, from your invitations to your cake, your place settings to your centrepieces. This will help to create an ambience for your celebration.
When discovering your wedding style, it is absolutely essential that your individual personalities, passions and love story are reflected. It needs to be completely unique to you both and that is what will create an unforgettable wedding day.
