Before diving headfirst (and blindly) into planning your Brisbane wedding, it helps to know the style you’d like, as it sets the tone. Your wedding style will influence everything from your invitations to your catering, dress code, and entertainment. Having a specific style to inform all these choices helps you create a truly cohesive celebration to reminisce about for years to come.
However, as any married woman will tell you, selecting the style that suits your vision and yourself can be overwhelming. Luckily, our wedding stylists are here to help! After years of bringing countless couples’ visions to life, we have four tips to help you do the same. Let’s take a closer look at how to find your wedding style.
Consider Your Space
First and foremost, your wedding venue is the canvas on which your styling will shine! The style you choose should complement your venue – otherwise one has to go. Imagine getting married on a sweltering day at the beach in full ball gown attire, makeup, and heels? Simply put, work with your venue and not against it!
If you’ve already booked a venue, take a look at the general look, feel, and vibe of the venue. Is it soft, intimate, and romantic, like the beach or a forest? A regal, yet modest chapel? A luxurious ballroom at an exclusive hotel? As you can see, each example sets a certain tone. If you’ve chosen an intimate, romantic forest space, then complement it with floral accents, bohemian styled decor, and earthy tones. For a more glamorous venue, I’d go with more refined, elegant décor and regal colours.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to consider the season too! Some styles are best suited to specific seasons. For example, summer calls for light, bright, or vibrant tones, florals, and warm lighting.
Incorporate Your Personal Taste
Remember, your wedding day should be uniquely you two – it’s your big day after all! Although trending styles are tempting, we always recommend drawing from your personal style to create a celebration you’re bound to fall in love with.
Think about how you’ve styled your home and even your wardrobe too! Try to put it into words – is it bohemian? Minimalist? Colourful? Contemporary? These words will help you style your wedding to suit your taste. You should also think about your favourites, rather than the crowd favourites. Incorporate your favourite flowers into your bouquet and table feature pieces. Use your favourite colour to accent your decor.
Collect & Curate Inspiration
Although incorporating your own style into your wedding is hugely helpful, you may still be struggling to use it to make concrete decisions on the look and feel. That’s where every bride-to-be’s best friend, Pinterest, comes in! With artistically composed photos saturated with style, you’ll be able to gather an idea of what you like – and don’t like.
Get on Pinterest and start collecting images that express the style you desire. By curating inspiration, you can paint a picture of what you’d like to help your wedding stylist bring it to life! Once you’ve found your inspiration, look for any similarities between each pin – you’ll start to see that you’ve drifted towards particular colour schemes, lighting ideas, flower arrangements, and so on.
Call In The Cavalry
There’s a reason why wedding stylists exist – not only do they take some pressure off, but they are masters of the language of style. Using design principles, fashion, function, and intuition, they will help you develop your own unique style or bring fresh concepts to timeless trends.
