When it comes to your wedding, what are you and your fiancé dreaming about the most? Stunning outfits? A mountain landscape? Top shelf bar? Whatever it is, that’s where you should start. To do this you can use wedding magazines. Print out photos, or do it entirely on a digital platform.
If your focus is the gown and you have a type of gown in mind, put that in the center of your board and expand from there. If you are dreaming of a floral boho dress for example, then you might want to consider reception locations that fit that vibe. The location could help to inspire your colors, which can then influence your flowers and cake.
Questions to ask yourselves:
Here are some things to consider
Try on dresses/suit and take in to consideration the time of year you plan to get married. Warmer months may opt for linen suits and colder weather couples may lean towards long sleeves dresses or to add a fur shawl.
A wonderful aspect of small weddings is the ability to take them almost anywhere. Location options for your small wedding are different from big weddings.
To start, those picturesque ceremonies with mountain backdrops are typically only obtainable for those with a slim guest count. That’s because access and space at the site are limited.
You can host your small wedding reception at a restaurant or in an Air BnB. Unlike larger weddings which are held at banquet halls and other facilities, there is no minimum requirement for the alternative locations. Meaning, you and your spouse can pick more unique spots to host both the ceremony and reception.
What type of flower arrangements are you going to have and what colors do you want them to include? Some couples opt for white, simple bouquets and others want large bouquets with vibrant colors and maybe even feathers!
The best part of a vision board is it allows you to see your dream wedding in advance! You can then see what fits and what could be adjusted in order to have your vision come to life in a cohesive way.
