Tips For Styling Your Wedding Day…

Newbies to Wedding Styling…

If you’re a newbie to wedding planning (which I’m guessing most of your are!), the thought of designing and styling an entire wedding can seem pretty daunting!

I think it’s a common misconception that styling is purely about the visual look of the day itself. Your venue choice, music, food and even the invitations you send out, all play a part in tying it all together and help tell your own unique story. So today I’m sharing some tips on how to get those creative juices flowing,ย and some photos from aย shoot I recently styled to inspire Bride’s and Groom’s to be!

Use your venue…

Your location is a big factor when it comes to deciding the overall look and feel of your wedding.

Whilst we still had speeches, a first dance and cut the cake, we ditched pretty much everything else and I’m so glad we did. No favours, no formal sit down meal, no bouquet toss…and you know what? No one noticed or complained about a single thing!

2. Delegate, delegate, delegate…

Like a lot of couples, we didn’t like the idea of asking for help in the lead up, and even though we managed to get everything finished, I wish we had accepted those offers of help! I can guarantee that most of your friends and family will be more than happy to lend a hand, and will be thrilled to be a part of it.

This is especially true on the day; we had our reception at a village …
