Although sites like Pinterest are a wonderful place to get inspiration for your wedding, you’ll find that many of the pins have been done over and over again. This means that the same colour selections, DIY projects, and other popular favorites from the site are frankly overdone and played out. Though this may seem like a non-problem for most, those that really enjoy the idea of having a wedding that is unique to them and their likes, instead of what’s easiest to find or what’s most popular at the moment, can mean all the difference between a beautiful and timeless wedding and one that sticks itself right in the timeline of internet DIY popularity.
One of the first things you should consider when you’re looking to make the most out of your wedding is to pick out inspirations. These can be overdone, but it’s all about picking out something you genuinely love, and that may signify something special to you or your relationship, so that there is a that unique timeless approach that will make all the difference. This can be done in a number of ways. You can collect photos and lists online, or you can make something that you can keep for the future, like a photo book of inspiration. You can take a binder or a even make a book yourself and print out and cut and paste things that inspire you. This can be done in a number of ways, but you don’t have to pick out obvious inspiration for your wedding. Picking out photos that appeal to you because of their colour coordination and tones and variations in shapes is a great way to re-think the process and really come out with something beautiful that you love. This goes the same for wedding dresses and hairstyles as well. If you find a hair style you like, make sure to save it and bring it into your hair rehearsal. You should also make sure they use fragrance free mousse so that way it doesn’t conflict with your perfume or the flowers.
The next thing you should consider when you’re picking out these inspirations is where to look. Though your first inclination may be to get wedding magazines or look specific at weddings, this is a great place to start, but should not be where you focus your efforts. Pick out pamphlets and look online at shops like Fossil, that take their colour coordination carefully, and are stylish in their own right. If you really love a certain brand like Fossil, you can even pick out small pieces to include in your wedding, like watches, or jewelry.
Something else you should consider for inspiration for your wedding, and to make it more meaningful is your family and friends and the memories you share with your significant others and them. As the old saying goes, a wedding is not just for the bride and groom. This is definitely true, especially when it comes to your friends and family. Though your relationship with your partner should be the main focus, it’s also important to understand and insert how your relationship with your partner intersects with your friends and family. Include things that make it most personal, pays homage to your family and friends, and brings together the biggest relationships in your life as a celebration of the road you have a head of you. This is important because sometimes weddings can mean bad blood between friends and family, especially if you tend to be attached to your significant other without realizing you’re spending less time with everyone else that’s important to you. Making your wedding beautiful on the inside and out is a way to ensure that it will be special for everyone involved.
