In a world with Pinterest, have you caught yourself losing focus on what you envision for your wedding day? We’re here to help make your wedding feel a little more like you! So you’ve pinned thousands of ideas -- now what?! We’re going to break down the moodboard building process so your visions can go from been-there-done-that to omg-this-feels-like-us!
1. Choose colors. When selecting colors, keep both you and your partner’s preferences in mind. A good way to do so is by taking note of the color in your home and closet. There are no rules to how many colors you should select, but we think it’s best to start simple and grow from there. Start by selecting 2-3 main colors and 1-2 accent colors. It’s always important include neutrals within the palette, too!
2. Gather non-wedding inspiration images. These can include interiors, patterns, textures, street style, art...anything! Choose images that inspire you and fit within your color palette. Take specific note of the way the images make you feel and start to understand what it is that attracts you to the photo. This can help when selecting vendors that match your style later on.
3. Select a few wedding inspiration images. Your wedding should reflect you and your partner, so keep in mind these are simply for inspiration and not to take exact ideas. You want to keep your moodboard pretty general in this way since the focus is on an overall feeling, so try not to get too caught up in specifics. Think about the feelings, photography, colors, and expressions when selecting wedding-related images. If you have your heart set on something specific, though, go ahead add it!
4. Choose fonts. Be as picky as possible! Look for a font that combines both you and your partner’s style while reflecting the kind of impression you want to give to your guests. This font will help set the tone of the event and can be used on all stationary goods and signage. Are you hosting a more formal event? Look for a serif or cursive font. Going for a more casual or laid-back vibe? Sans serif is a good way to go!
5. The final step is our absolute favorite! Add personal verbiage. Take parts of your love story and turn them into phrases. Pay close attention to the words you select so that they match your vibe. Thesaurus.com is your best friend here! If you’re having a hard time articulating your love story into words, start by doing a brain dump! Write down all inside jokes, significant locations, major milestones, and the timeline of your relationship.
The finished product should be something you and your partner love! Hang it on your refrigerator and look at it everyday for a week or so. If there’s anything that bothers you when you look at it, make changes. Once you’ve decided you love everything about it, move forward in selecting vendors that align with your vibe and decor (and a photo booth backdrop, of course!) that complement your style. Sending your moodboard to vendors from the beginning can help both you and the vendor determine if you’re a good fit!
