As you are exploring, obsessively pinning, and turning the pages of every wedding magazine that exists it’s inevitable that you will see a variety of styles. Developing your own style is very important to us as your wedding planners as we begin the design process. What is important is focusing in on your design tastes and preferences and then collaborating on how to bring those ideas to life through your wedding design.
In this style series, we will highlight a few different wedding styles to show what may work for your big day!
First up is Boho Chic.
We would say that this is currently the most popular style that we are seeing on social media and in wedding magazines. An airy, light, organic feeling is at the center of this design profile. Bouquets tend to have a loose shape, many textures, and long, trailing ribbons.
A cautionary tale, though: beware of combining too many trendy elements. You want your wedding to look timeless. You could achieve this by having a more classicly shaped wedding dress contrasted by looser bouquets carried by you and your bridesmaids.
Also, be sure not to have competing elements in your reception design. You want your guests to have visual interest, but overstimulating them could be confusing. They may not be sure where their eyes should go and may feel overwhelmed. Having consistent signage and printing will help bring all your elements together.
We have been seeing couples take elements of a boho look and combining it with a fairly classic overall aesthetic. Find pieces you love from a specific style and make it your own for your wedding day!
