Use Pinterest to Create an Ideal Image
You may have had an image of what you want your wedding day to look like for decades, or you could be utterly clueless as to what you want. Either is fine and totally great. Pinterest is an image sharing platform in which people upload amazing photography which is sure to help you get an idea of what you want your day to look like. Search key terms you may think would be great to look at, and before you know it, you’ll have the perfect image in your head of the big day.
Choose a Season and Set Your Date
Your theme and colors for your wedding will be determined by the season it is held in. If you want to have a winter wedding, then make sure to consider all of your options when it comes to venues. This is the same for spring, summer and fall weddings too. Often people choose a date that is special to them, and either has meaning in their family history or to the couple themselves. The date you set for your wedding is entirely your decision and should be decided between the two of you.
Consider Themes and Colors
Before going any further in the wedding planning process, you will need to decide on a theme and color (perhaps an accent and primary color) which will run parallel throughout your whole wedding day. Many couples will use the same theme and color for their invitations and save the date cards, so this is why it’s important to consider now. The season your wedding is taking place may affect the color you want to opt for. Darker themes work better in the winter time, whereas bright yellow and green colors look amazing in spring!
Design Your Save the Date and Wedding Invitations
You may want to hire someone to make the save the date and wedding invitations but if you’re creative then try it out yourself. You have a lot of time to change the design and edit it how you wish so don’t be afraid to design something out of your comfort zone. Mermaid wedding dresses are fashionable these days, and if you’re working with an underwater wedding theme, your invitations can be super fun and unique.
Search for a Venue
The venue is one of the essential elements of the wedding day, take your time to decide which venue suits you best. Visit as many as you need without worrying that you don’t have enough time. You want to ensure the venue and everything else is perfect.
