The guilty pleasure of brides worldwide, your hours of pinning can finally be justified. You’re curating the best details, dresses and décor ideas to have the best day ever – you have got a wedding to plan, after all!
We don’t dispute that it can be an amazing source of inspiration (with Wedding Ideas showcasing the best right here!), but making those pretty pictures translate into reality is often harder than you think…
Here are three top tips to make your Pinterest wedding dreams into a reality, because when your imaginary wedding looks that good, it just has to be shared, right?
Discover the possibilities…
While your Pinterest wedding board is likely packed with wonderful weddings, big and small, it’s probably also packed with different venues, times of year and budgets.
Before you get totally blown away by ideas that you want to recreate them yourself, it’s time to get realistic. What will your wedding date, venue and budget allow? Your venue in particular might have more specific rules. This is especially true when it comes to hanging decorations, open flames and even the throwing of confetti. If candles, drapes and fairy lights are essential to your day, pick a venue that can accommodate them.
Check what’s possible before you set your heart on something to avoid having it broken if the answer is no.
Show it off…
To your planner, stylist, suppliers. Dubbed a visual search engine, the Pinterest wedding board you’ve put together really is credible research for your suppliers to work from.
It’s far more effective to show someone what you want to achieve rather than describe it. There’s less room for individual interpretation on their part. This means you’re more likely to get as close a result as possible to the pins you’re inspired by.
Pay attention to the details…
The success of Pinterest-worthy weddings is attention to detail. From table linens to types of chair; lighting choices to colour schemes; flowers to stationery, everything is thought about and carefully matched.
Your colours, venue, theme, season and lighting must all work together to create the bigger impact you want. It’s okay to introduce some elements of challenge or contrast so long as you do so to make the overall look even more effective. For example soft candles and more industrial exposed bulbs can work together to create atmosphere and romance.
