The Fun Stuff: Wedding Decor & Design!
Now that the important (but slightly less fun) details are finalized like the date and venue - it's time to get into the exciting stuff - decor and design! Are you going for the boho, beachy vibe or more of the moody, vintage feel? Whatever you choose, it's always easiest to start with some mood boards from Pinterest! We sat down with #BrideToBe Lindsay to see what she put together along the planning process...
The guests will first be welcomed in by a custom sign that directs them to the backyard towards the ceremony space.
Lindsay is starting her walk down the aisle with a personalized doorway entrance, followed by a line of pampas grass in the sand, and ends with a gorgeous triangle altar complete with a flower arrangement. The flowers from the arch will be repurposed later to the front of the sweetheart table as well!
Don't forget to add seating signage and chairs that match your overall aesthetic. The #BrideToBe decided on wooden chairs with a white top to help with the summer heat on the beach!
During the recessional, the happy new couple will be showered with biodegradable confetti (completely beach friendly, of course) and held in customized cones!
After the ceremony, guests will be welcomed into the cocktail tent for refreshments. Lindsay had a custom "Cheers" sign crafted for the front of the bar and plans to have her signature drinks listed on acrylic displays.
Rather than passed hors d'oeuvres, Lindsay decided on a family-style charcuterie table.
After the cocktail hour, guests are ushered into the main tent. The #BrideToBe chose a sailcloth tent versus a traditional pole or frame tent because the fabric adds another level of design without spending the added expense on draping!
Personalized signage throughout the space will add a custom experience for the married couple and their guests.
Every good wedding needs a fun lounge space! Here's a few inspiration photos:
What's on the menu? The #BrideToBe decided on a more casual pizza food truck style instead of the traditional plated dinner, and the cake is a tiered option with florals to match the altar! The centerpieces continue the boho vibe with large flowers and a monstera leaf similar to the image below.
Next week, we'll be chatting about all things guest related - how to narrow it down, which platform to use for RSVPs and should you have gifts for everyone? Until then, check out our past #BrideToBe series blogs here or follow us on Instagram for more recent mood boards!
