Ready to dive into planning the dreamiest wedding Ireland has ever seen? I bet you’ve got ideas bouncing around your head like confetti. But how do you bring them all together? Enter the wedding inspiration board.
But how do you go about creating one that truly encapsulates your vision? Let’s dive in…
1. Begin with a Vision:
Start by understanding what you and your partner truly want. Is it an intimate beach wedding, a grand castle affair, or perhaps a rustic barn celebration? Understanding your core vision will help set the tone for your board.
2. Collate Visuals:
Gather images, swatches, and bits that resonate with your vision. Think magazine clippings, photos, fabric samples, and even snippets of poetry or quotes. As a wedding photographer, I often advise couples to consider including photographs of Ireland’s captivating landscapes if they’re tying the knot here. It adds a touch of authenticity and locale flavour to the board.
3. Go Digital or Physical:
Decide if you want a tangible board or a digital one. Platforms like Pinterest are excellent for creating digital inspiration boards. If you’re more tactile, get a corkboard, pins, and start arranging!
4. Categorize and Segment:
Divide your board into sections – attire, décor, venue, food, and entertainment. This helps to ensure no detail, however minute, is forgotten.
5. Stay Flexible:
Your inspiration board isn’t set in stone. As you approach your wedding date, your ideas might evolve. Keep the board flexible, allowing room for modifications and additions.
6. Share and Collaborate:
Share your board with your wedding planners and photographer. It can be an invaluable tool to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding your wedding’s aesthetic.
There you have it! You’ve mapped out a well-curated inspiration board that will act as a compass, guiding every decision and painting a vivid picture of your upcoming celebration. By following these steps, you’re not only organising your thoughts but also paving the way for a day that truly feels “you”.
