There are those that have dreamt of their wedding day since they were a little girl. A small box under their bed or in their closet, full of their wedding ideas just waiting for the right person to make their dreams come true.

And then, there are those who are still trying to figure out how he managed to slip that engagement ring on their finger! Aha!

I was one of those brides, I knew I wanted to get married and I knew I wanted it to be beautiful but I didn't know how to go about it. There are so many different themes and trends, it can be overwhelming. So here are a few tips on how you can get inspired and decide what your dream wedding actually is.


1. Your Fashion Style

Its true, your sense of fashion can tell you a lot. Do you lean towards the classy clean line midi dress? Maybe an uber chic monochromatic colour scheme would be your cup of tea. Can’t help to run to the ‘second hand store’, perhaps you like vintage? Dusty gold accents, birdcages, window pane seating charts with a collection of vintage suitcases. Are you swooning?  Or maybe you always like to stand out in the crowd with bright and vibrant colours, look into bright coloured peonies and dahlias for your bouquets. Look in your closet and see if your wedding style can be the same.


2. Previous Weddings

There is something that we love about other people’s weddings and there are things we question. Take an idea or two from other people’s weddings and see how you can make it into your own style.


3. Pinterest

You can find an insurmountable collection of images on different styles and themes for your wedding. I think it is a great starting point for brides to find ideas.  Although, DIY projects may look fun and easy, beware.  Sometimes its better to leave the work to the professionals, the last thing you need is to be creating wine cork place holders the night before your wedding. 


4. Event Designers

Unlike Pinterest, event designers can show you different styles but also do them for you. You might not have all the pieces together, but it is the job of the event designer to fill in the blanks. Look up some event designers in your area and see what ideas they can create for you.
