Wedding: Mood Boards


Being a designer, I approached planning our wedding very methodically.  I treated it much in the same way I would when I begin to work on a new collection.

Some would probably say my process is a bit over-the-top, but when you are going to throw this kind of party and spend this kind of money, you should be meticulous.  (it is fun too!!!)

After looking at a ton of bridal magazines, wedding blogs and Pinterest boards, I started to narrow down the ideas. Choosing Color & Theme come first - sometimes one will help dictate the other. Then, all the Details follow.

From hundreds of images, I made a Mood Board that could be shared with my vendors AND keep ME on track too.  It's important to be concise when it comes to the Mood Board as too many images can become confusing for everyone trying to stay on the same page for this event.

Our Wedding Mood Board: Hollywood Glamour, Sparkle, Art Deco, Jade, Fun & Warmth

After going through our photographs and putting together a collage of the real-deal party that was inspired by these images and ideas, I must say, it was a success.  Of course, it's important to remember that having fun and getting married to the love of your life are more important than the decor... but c'mon, we want the whole package.
