The principles of interior design really do translate to wedding design. I recently read an article on interior design that caught my eye, and here is my interpretation for weddings.
You’ll never get tired of keeping it simple. If you love to manipulate, sew, paint, glue and cut out then by all means do that for your wedding for place cards, favors, and programs. But if you are like most brides with a full time job you recently started, you will be so happy that you decided to keep it simple. That includes keeping the planning simple, getting things done in a timely fashion, not all at the last minute, and trusting your Wedding Planner to help.
You’ll never get tired of quality. This is so true for life and most certainly weddings. Quality service providers make all the difference in the smooth flow of your wedding day. Does your florist understand your vision and will he execute that vision in a timely manner? Is your wedding planner educated and experienced enough to deal with your needs, the schedule and all the service providers in a calm efficient way? Have you hired a quality venue with a quality caterer (this is huge)? Quality may come with a slightly higher price tag (or not) but you will never regret having gone there.
You’ll never get tired of great details. The special dance at just the right moment, the exuberant entrance of the bride and groom, the beautiful floral at the entrance to the room that says welcome, the special place card table, the guest table with a welcoming floral arrangement and lovely candlelight, the menu cards with the printed menu you so carefully chose in a style that suits your wedding. These are all details that abound at a high-end wedding but are not out of reach for any wedding.
Keep these three ideas in mind when you start the planning process. Hire a Wedding Planner to help keep you on track and in budget, and you will always remember that your day was your way with everything you dreamed it could be.
