Building Your Wedding Inspiration: Dos and Don’ts in Gathering Wedding Ideas
Start gathering wedding ideas and inspiration – if you haven’t already embarked on the journey of collecting and start gathering wedding ideas – inspiration for your wedding, now is the perfect time to start. Here, we’ll provide some wedding planning tips and quick guidelines for gathering wedding inspiration that will help you shape your dream day.
DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF. DO SAVE ANYTHING THAT IGNITES YOUR IMAGINATION FOR INSPIRATION. When you start gathering wedding inspiration, even if you’re unsure how the various elements you love and inspire you will come together, remember that designers excel at distilling your inspiration into a cohesive vision that mirrors your style.
DON’T RESTRICT YOUR COLLECTION TO WEDDING PHOTOS. DO GATHER INSPIRATION FROM A WIDE ARRAY OF SOURCES. Our clients have drawn inspiration from their homes, cherished clothing brand campaigns, and even tantalizing food photography while brainstorming for their wedding day. Seeking ideas beyond the wedding world opens the door to more imaginative and personalized designs.
DON’T CONTINUE RESEARCHING ONCE YOU HAVE A CLEAR PLAN. DO PLACE YOUR TRUST IN THE PLANNING PROCESS. Once you’ve established a well-defined vision with your wedding designer, I highly recommend closing those magazines and browser tabs. You have your inspiration and you have finished your task of gathering wedding inspiration! Perpetual browsing can lead to what we call “shiny object syndrome.” By consistently offering honest feedback throughout the design journey, your wedding will blossom into a beautiful reflection of your unique style and love story—no need for last-minute trend-chasing.
