Do you find yourself endlessly scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest, unsure of how to translate your inspiration into a cohesive wedding look and style? Relax. The answer lies in creating a wedding mood board.
A wedding mood board is a visual representation of your wedding style, capturing the colors, textures, and overall vibe of your big day. It’s a tool that helps you bring your wedding vision to life and communicate it with your wedding vendors. But how do you go about creating the perfect mood board that captures the essence of your dream wedding? Here are some tips from a millennial wedding expert:
Find Your Inspiration
Start by gathering inspiration for your wedding style. Check out wedding blogs, social media platforms, and even your own personal style to find images that speak to you. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and explore different design genres, such as fashion, art, and interior design. Create a folder of your favorite images to get the creative juices flowing.
Define Your Wedding Style
Once you have a collection of inspiration images, it’s time to define your wedding style. Are you a modern minimalist or a bohemian free spirit? Do you prefer a classic and timeless look or something more bold and daring? Look for common themes and elements in the images you’ve collected and use them to guide your wedding style choices.
Choose Your Colors
Your color palette sets the tone for your wedding day. Consider the season, your venue, and your personal style when selecting your colors. Do you want to go for a romantic pastel palette or bold jewel tones? Or maybe a neutral palette with pops of color? The options are endless, so choose what feels true to you.
Pay Attention to the Details
It’s the little things that make your wedding day special. Include details such as your wedding invitations, floral arrangements, and table settings in your mood board. These elements will tie your wedding style together and create a cohesive look and feel.
Refine Your Mood Board
Once you’ve gathered your inspiration, defined your wedding style, and selected your colors and details, it’s time to refine your mood board. Look for images that don’t fit with your overall vision and remove them. Make sure the images you’ve chosen work well together and convey the mood you’re trying to create. Use online tools like Canva or Adobe Spark to create a digital mood board or print out your images and create a physical mood board.
