Planning your wedding day can be overwhelming and the most engulfing factor is the decision making process itself. The wedding industry is on eye candy overload which is a wonderful thing but while your eyes may be enjoying the view, your mind may be begging for some shuteye. First thing is first, selecting an overall theme can help simplify your decisions and ease the rest of the details into place.
Brainstorm about the type of event you want in way of style, atmosphere and size. These elements should be within both your personalities. If you are suffering from writer’s block, make a list of your favorite things. Take your ideas and create a wedding mission statement. When you find yourself on the fence regarding a particular detail, look back to your mission statement for guidance. With your ideas and mission statement fresh in your mind devise an overall theme. The key is to make your wedding day ‘A Reflection of You’. For example “Springtime in Paris” may seem eccentric if you have never visited nor have plans to visit Paris.
Here are some ideas:
If you and your beloved are wine enthusiasts, why not treat your guests to an event from the vine?
If you and your beloved met while at summer camp, why not send everyone back to camp?
If you and your beloved share a love for the ocean, why not plan an event worthy of the High Seas?
If you and your beloved enjoy BBQ, why not treat your guests to what made Memphis famous?
If you and your beloved become engaged while apple picking, why not plan an apple infused event?
If you and your beloved both share a favorite color of blue, why not go crazy with something blue?
