Your Wedding Style is a reflection of you and the one you are choosing to spend forever with. Do you and your fiancé love going to the beach? Maybe a casual, outdoor wedding is best for you. Have you always dreamed of wearing a ball gown wedding dress? A formal, black-tie wedding might fit your perfect theme! When choosing your personal wedding style, there are many details, both big and small, that can be explored. The Reunion Wedding Team would like to help you determine your wedding style considering these four main criteria: Fabulous Fashion, Celebration Décor, Creative Cuisine, and Personal Touches.
Fabulous Fashion: Style isn’t created, it is who you are. Is your closet filled with flowing chiffon or fitted suits? On your wedding day, express yourself by choosing a dress that represents you. The location and season will help determine what types of prints, fabrics, and details will be appropriate for your wedding style. Complete the look by selecting your Wedding Party’s attire with your theme in mind.
Celebration Décor: Burlap table runners, chalkboard signs, Mason jar centerpieces, and wine barrels would be great accessories to accentuate a rustic, shabby-chic wedding style. Distressed picture frames showcasing table numbers, ornate brooch bouquets, and old-fashioned typewriters and luggage are beautiful ways to perfect the vintage-style wedding.
Creative Cuisine: Don’t feel as if you’re limited to the traditional plated banquet dinner. For a more fun and interactive way to incorporate your personal taste, try an Action Station Menu or a heavy Hors d’ oeuvre reception instead. Tie in cultural elements by choosing cuisine that compliments your family’s history or the destination in which you choose to wed.
Personal Touches: Guests should be reminded of you as they experience your day through the details. Homemade favors, signature cocktails, and monogrammed wedding party gifts are sentimental ways to tie in what is most important to you both.
Still looking for wedding style inspiration? Use these three helpful hints to determine the look and feel of your special day.
Log off Pinterest!
Don’t choose a style just because it’s the latest trend. Choose a wedding style that is realistic to your budget and who you are as a couple. The goal is to look back as you celebrate your 25th Anniversary, knowing you made the right decisions. Remember it is your wedding and you can choose to be as traditional or non-traditional as you like.
Take a Look Around You!
Wedding style should be determined by your personal style. The way you express yourself on your wedding day should reflect your own unique fashion and home décor. If your home has modern and contemporary décor elements, maybe an art gallery or museum would be a great fit for you. On the other hand, if your home is filled with vintage-inspired furniture and antiques, consider a romantic, garden wedding.
Commit to It!
From bridesmaids dresses and centerpieces to menu selection and location, there are many ways to incorporate your own personal style in your wedding. Whether you choose a simple wedding style, with natural wooden elements and colors or a full-blown renaissance theme, do not try to incorporate everything. Stick to the personal style you love and remember to have fun!
