I have a feeling some of you reading this are newly engaged—CONGRATULATIONS!!—and perhaps you’re not exactly sure where to start with the wedding planning. It can certainly be overwhelming, but I always encourage my clients to start with the big picture: What do you want your wedding day to feel like?
Before diving into the nitty gritty of peonies versus ranunculus, letterpress versus flat printing, sit down and really think about what feels the most like you as a couple. A formal and traditional ceremony and reception or something more casual and relaxed? Do you feel more like you in a grand ballroom or a rustic barn? Do your tastes run toward the sleek and modern or more sentimental and vintage?
Books and blogs are a wonderful source of inspiration as you try to figure out what is most you, and to help you get started, we’re giving away a copy of The Inspired Wedding: Seven Handcrafted Themes for Your Big Day! This book was compiled by Emma Arendoski, editor of Emmaline Bride, and it’s chock full of photos and inspiration grouped together by theme.
It highlights seven wedding styles, including vintage, traditional, and beach to name a few, and shows you how to thread your theme seamlessly through every detail…bridesmaids dresses, hair styles, florals, decor, venues, and more!
(By the way, you’ll find our vintage invitations in the Boho Style section along with loads of romantic and creative styling tips.)
