Your wedding day is the one time in your life when everyone important to you is in the same room, so make sure you show them something that reflects you and your fiance as a couple! Always strive to incorporate your own personal style, regardless of what the current trend is. After all, you are the one who will remember the most about your wedding. When you look back on your photos in 15 years, you want to see a look that says “Classically You” rather then looking at them with the classic thought of “What was I thinking?!?!”


There are so many ways to incorporate a theme or color palette, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box. I always encourage my brides to focus on the elements of their wedding that is of the most importance to them, then think of how they would apply different themes into that design element. If you fall in love with one, then run with it!


Design tip of the week:

Be careful not to over-indulge in a wedding theme! Allow some elements of your wedding to be the focal point, and then design around it more simply to accentuate rather then distract.  More is not always better... sometimes it’s just more!
