It’s no secret that planning a wedding takes a lot of effort, and seeing your dream vision through from beginning to end can feel daunting! Many couples want a certain overall wedding day vibe, but they can’t always pinpoint exactly how to describe it or where to begin. I wanted to help you kickstart the planning process by giving you a solid foundation of inspiration and ideas to start with! Each theme comes with its own Pinterest board full of wedding inspiration you can pull from for your big day!
Please feel free to share your ideal theme’s board with your wedding planner and dream team vendors to create your perfect wedding day! You can also create your own wedding day board and pin directly from my boards to create your own inspiration board!
If you love all those dreamy Bohemian vibes, the best way to style your backyard boho wedding is by incorporating pops of warm colors with soft and creamy neutrals. Rattan and wicker details create a fun contrast against a wooded backyard setting and you can easily create an epic aisle by layering vintage rugs! Not into wearing a traditional wedding gown? Opt for an off-white white wrap dress with bell sleeves or ditch the white altogether and choose a fun color! This style of wedding is perfect for summer and fall!
Is your perfect wedding up in the mountains or at a campground setting? This is such a fun and unique wedding style that really lets you get creative! Set up your ceremony in front of a spectacular mountain view with an a-frame arch and some stunning florals. Offer your guests s’mores and summer camp-inspired games to play during cocktail hour. Then for your reception, dress up your location with macrame art, hanging pennant flags, string lights and maybe even a vintage camper!
Calling all beach lovers!! Coastal chic is one of those wedding styles that is always just so effortlessly beautiful! Whether your wedding is right on the beach or at a dreamy yacht club on the bay, incorporate shades of blue throughout your details and accent with a natural beige tone, reminiscent of sand or seashells! If you love that breezy beach look, consider a wedding dress with fun layers in the skirt or lots of movement! Certain lace patterns can also give off a super beachy and coastal vibe!
Thinking of tying the knot like a desert dreamer? Desert Western is such a unique and eclectic style that is great for adventurous couples! This style is perfect for incorporating those dusty and dirty browns, oranges, reds, and pinks that are SO on trend right now! Embrace the desert terrain and consider adding dried florals and feathers into your decor. Get you and your wedding party fun western style hats and spruce yours up with some more of those florals we talked about earlier!
If you’re into a more clean and classic look, a modern chic wedding might be for you! Start with a really straightforward color palette of black, white, and grey, then add in a warm metallic like gold or copper! To create some WOW pieces, consider using clear chairs at your ceremony for guests or create a cocktail wall with a sweet neon sign at the top. Wondering what type of dress you should wear? Go for a simple, square neck crepe gown and dress your girls in romantic drape-neck satin slip dresses for a fun and classy mix of materials!
This one’s for you city-loving, artsy couples! It’s always super fun getting to take a more industrial and urban space and transforming it into a romantic wedding destination! With an urban romantic style, you can get really creative with your colors and materials! Brick, brass, and other metals are your base here and you get to dress it up with stunning florals and greenery. Consider adding details with abstract art mixed in, from your invitation suite to accent walls. Not into a traditional bouquet? Try a golden hoop bouquet with pampas grass!
Is a whimsical forest wedding what you’ve always imagined for your big day? Channel your inner fairy tale moment and get ready to feel one with nature with a magical and woodsy wedding nestled deep in the forest. Greens and blues are perfect for complimenting the natural colors of your surroundings. Consider adding wood tones and pieces of greenery throughout your details to tie everything together even more! Give your day an organic feel by choosing a cascading bouquet or a wedding dress with floral details!
