With countless sources of wedding inspiration, it’s no wonder couples are overwhelmed and under pressure to make the “right” design decisions for their big day. Working with a professional wedding planner to guide you through the style and design process is a must nowadays. Here is some of the advice we, at Melanie Parent Events, want to share with every couple struggling with design and trends while still trying to stay true to their own style (and let’s be honest, trying to do all of this within a budget!).

Compliment Your Personal Style

When you start searching for your dream venue and envision your wedding, try to remember who you are in everyday life. What are your likes and dislikes? Do you like vintage or modern? Industrial or rustic? Use your current living space, wardrobe, and interests as inspiration for your wedding day style. You want your big day to reflect who you are as individuals and as a couple. Guests who attend your event should see décor and touches that are “so you”.

Stay Off Pinterest

Now that you’ve narrowed down a wedding style, stick to it! You’re going to cause yourself stress and confusion by veering off the chosen look and feel. We see it all the time! The couple has decided they love rustic, but they come across a modern minimalist Pinterest board and start questioning every decision they’ve made. Stick to what you fell in love with originally and if you’re still drawn to the other style, look to incorporate small touches without doing a complete overhaul.

Work With The Venue

Choosing your date and venue are the first big decisions you’re going to make when planning your wedding. Make sure the room you choose and the surrounding grounds compliment the overall vision. Don’t choose a space that needs a complete overhaul and will cost a fortune to transform from industrial warehouse-industrial to garden chic. The goal is to find a space that has the overall aesthetic and feel so that you can focus on the details and ways to make it “you”.
