You’re hired to plan the biggest day of a bride’s life. The day when she walks down the aisle to marry the love of her life and celebrate the union among family and friends. The bride has an idea, but she looks to you, the wedding planner, to bring it to life. With arms full of vision boards, color schemes, inspirational magazines, pictures, and Pinterest boards, you’re ready to hit the ground running, and here are three ways to start.
Identify a Wedding Style
A bride may have a list of colors, images, and ideas, but it’s up to the wedding planner to make it into a style that reflects the overall aesthetics of the wedding. The colors, atmosphere, and overall look and feel will all contribute directly to the wedding style. Most importantly, it will help the vendors lead you in the right direction.
Pick a Wedding Theme
Similar to the style, but also very different, the wedding theme is going to incorporate specific details into the wedding day. In 2022, the theme of Bridgerton will continue to remain popular. Food, music and Tablescape™ are a few areas to incorporate this theme.
Focus on the Tablescape
Brides might start their “planning” by looking at the very specific details (such as place-card holder they saw on Pinterest), but it’s up to the wedding planner to focus on the overall look and feel as they incorporate these ideas. The reception tables play a key role in both the aesthetics and the organization. A centerpiece, plates, napkins and even the silverware play important roles. Wedding planners who provide the vendors with a clear-cut vision of the theme and style will witness a Tablescape™ transform into a true “wow” experience. As the wedding planner, you will first meet with vendors to create a sample Tablescape™ that aligns with the bride’s style and theme. Be sure to select a vendor with a showroom to inspire your ideas. Once a sample Tablescape™ is complete, invite the bride to the showroom where she can watch her dreams transform into realities.
With the right organization and vendors in place, a wedding planner’s job is fulfilling and fun! Cheers to a wonderful 2022 wedding season!
