When you think of your wedding day, what do you envision? How do you want your guests to feel? What atmosphere do you want to give off? Determining your wedding vision gives you a focus and helps your vendors understand the style you are going for. For example, if you tell your florist your wedding style is romantic and she has roses for your wedding bouquet, but you were really going for more of a modern take, there is going to be a disconnect!
It is so important to understand and determine your wedding style or theme before you start choosing your venues, floral elements, decor, etc... So what are some different wedding styles you may ask? Below we have listed 9 different styles with pictures to help you determine what vision you may be going for! Of course, once you have decided on a theme, then colors play a role, indoor/outdoor may be a factor, etc...
Soft pale colors, lots of candles, flowers galore!

Once you choose your style, then you would want to determine a color scheme. For example, take the tropical theme above, and instead of the pinks, you could do pops of orange and yellow. Or maybe you want a lavender or baby blue for a romantic theme wedding. Maybe you want a dark edgy wedding with black chairs, leather jackets, but really bright floral pops on the table! This is where you make your wedding, your own!
What style did you pick? Or are you between styles? Try combining styles for a modern beach style! I love it when couples put their unique touches on their wedding day!
