We’re big fans of personalized weddings! So, now that you’re engaged it’s time to figure out your personal wedding style. Should you have a theme or is that too kitschy? How about your color palette? Is your Pinterest board too trendy or does it represent your true wedding style? All these decisions can get pretty overwhelming. We stripped it down to basics to get you started down the path of married bliss. With these easy steps, you can feel confident that your personality as a couple will be front and center the minute your friends and family enter your venue.

Choose decor you can reuse in your home

As you start your life together you can take this opportunity to start planning not only your wedding style but also your shared home style. Many aspects of your wedding decor can be displayed and used in your everyday life. Books, antiques, picture frames, fancy vases, lanterns, and birdcages are all wedding-style elements that can have a second life as home decor. That doesn’t mean that you should go out and buy 72 lanterns. If you need that many it’s much more cost-effective to rent them. However, a few well-placed design elements on your sign-in or memorial table can set the tone and elevate the overall ambiance.

Rent statement pieces

We’re lucky to live and work in an area with a thriving wedding and event industry. Event rental companies invest in statement pieces that can be yours for the day for a fraction of the cost. They’ll even deliver and set it up for you! Rental items can be anything from sofas, chairs, and lounge furnishings to rugs and expensive, jaw-dropping statement pieces. Many companies specialize in vintage, modern, or eclectic pieces. Keep decor items in mind when choosing your arch or chairs. You never know when you’ll find the perfect piece to round out your wedding style. Like a cherry on top!

Stay focused on your wedding style

It’s easy to get distracted by the latest trends when planning your wedding. Especially if you spend a lot of time on Pinterest. With each design element, ask yourself how that item fits into your overall wedding vibe. If it doesn’t but you absolutely love it, consider buying it for your home instead. A cohesive wedding style throughout the day goes a long way toward maintaining your personalized ambiance.
