Many brides may think this is not important, but there is much more to a wedding than just picking colours for bridesmaid dresses and flowers. If you want your wedding to be personal, you must create a feel to your wedding that is uniquely you.
Many guests told me afterwards that they could see my touch in everything.
You don’t want your guests to walk into your wedding and not know for sure that it’s your wedding they are attending. So put your creative and crafty ability to work and make this special day unique!
**Note: If you put that extra effort in to designing and making a lot of your decor, you will save thousands off your final bill. And for those of you on a strict budget – this means that you CAN have the wedding of your dreams!!
This part of the process relies heavily on your inspiration book. I had filled my book with different motifs and themes that I had seen from all over, so all I had to do was narrow it down to something that would show people that this was not just a typical wedding. It was Sarah & Xavier’s wedding.
I went through everything from vintage bird’s nests and robin’s eggs to old french bicycle’s, french vintage post stamps, french lace but all of these things didn’t scream us. They were just pretty.
We finally settled on the first thing I had originally wanted. Laduree and Vintage French Style. This means gold gilt, toiles, fleur de lis, french language, french gardens – the works!
I fell in love with Laduree years ago, but my obsession didn’t reach it’s peak until I moved to Paris. Their boxes, patisseries, interiors, font, china……..it is all perfection, because it is classic. It isn’t trendy or contemporary. It is vintage beauty. You will see how I made this motif come to life in the next few blogs.
Whatever you pick, just make sure it can be carried through to all of the decor. Be it with a motif, font, pattern etc. Your decor will not be cohesive unless the general motif can be seen everywhere. Have fun with this and let your imagination go wild!
