Let’s cut to the chase. Wedding planning is HARD. With the invention of Pinterest, I’m sure we all have about ten million ideas for our weddings and it seems next to impossible to narrow it down to one cohesive look. Today I’m absolutely thrilled to have Stephanie Williamson on the blog sharing how to create a cohesive look and feel for your wedding with dreamy mood boards! She is a total rockstar when it comes to this so if you’re struggling with finding your wedding “vibe”, give her a call!
“Creating a cohesive look and theme for your wedding is something most couples WANT to achieve but might not necessarily know how to get there. Regardless of whether I’m planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower for my clients, the first thing I start with is a mood board. Mood boards are so crucial to the design process and offer a visual tool to share with your vendor team, family, and even yourself as you continue to make decisions!
To get your inspiration flowing, I thought I’d share four VERY different mood boards with you. From a mountain wedding to a clambake welcome party, there is definitely a design here for everyone! I don’t want to ruin the surprise but make sure you keep scrolling – a little birdie told me there is a free download for you at the end!
MOOD BOARD #1: MOUNTAIN WEDDING
Where are all of my adventurous, outdoor couples? This mood board is for you! Being one with nature and offering your guests a truly cozy experience is at the core of your vision for the big day. Whether your wedding is on top of a mountain in the winter or lakeside in the summer, this design creates a rustic, casual, warm feel for all to enjoy. Get your s’mores and cold beer ready!
MOOD BOARD #2: BOHO CHIC WEDDING
This mood board brings out ALL THE FEELS! From whimsical dream catchers and antique chandeliers to flowy dresses and bunches of wildflowers, this is nothing short of a bohemian fantasy. The turquoise adds a fun, bright twist to the design and provides the perfect color scheme for your spring wedding. Complete with plush love seats for your guests to sink into and the most intricate of details, say hello to the dreamiest wedding of the year!
MOOD BOARD #3: CLAMBAKE WEDDING WELCOME PARTY
For my couples having a weekend-long celebration and want to create an epic welcome for your guests? Look no further. This clambake welcome party is the absolute perfect way to kick off your wedding weekend and have some fun before your big day. This design is crafted for an outdoor summer soiree and your New England venue with that incredible ocean view will be a perfect backdrop. With this classic color palette, your guests will be excited to see what you have in store for them the rest of the weekend!
MOOD BOARD #4: BRIDAL SHOWER BRUNCH
Bridal shower brunches aren’t a new concept but this mood board adds some sparkle and glitz to the traditional celebration. Complete with a mimosa bar and donut cake (can I eat them all please?!), your guests will leave counting down the days to your wedding! Wispy whites, bright pinks and a little bit of shimmer will make any bride-to-be giddy with love and happiness!
