12 wedding planning tips: Tip 6 – Wedding theme

Sharing this post from Vintage by Ethel & Pearl:

Choosing a theme for your wedding can be a really helpful way of pulling your styling elements together. A theme can be as simple as one or two choice colors or a theme which runs through every element, e.g. Pop Art. A theme can be broad, e.g. Literary Greats, or specific, e.g. The Great Gatsby. Sometimes a theme emerges from one simple item like a pair of gorgeous bright blue shoes or a grandmother’s brooch that you want to incorporate into your outfit on the day.

A theme may be so subtle the guests are not even aware there is a theme threading the details together, yet it helps you select complementary elements to make for a beautiful and well styled event.

12 wedding planning tips: Tip 6 – Wedding theme.

Premier Bride Showplace Tips
You may find that the more time you can save in planning your wedding, the better. Our bridal show can be the one stop shopping experience you need to plan your entire wedding, especially if you go prepared. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of Premier Bride Showplace:

• Plan In Advance – Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.• Be Ready To Make Decisions – Bring the major decision-makers to Premier Bride Showplace with you. If you are the major decision-maker, bring someone with you that you can bounce ideas off of. Be ready to book your favorite vendors there at the show. Some exhibitors may even offer day-of-show booking discounts.

• Dress For The Occasion – Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Need we explain more on this one?

• Fashion Forward – Bring a notepad with you to jot down any dresses or tuxes you like during the fashion show. It will be much easier for you to remember which Bridal Salon featured the gowns you like. You’ll also want to be able to take notes when attending the seminars.

• Above all, have fun! Bridal shows may be useful and informative, but they’re also a blast. You’ll have a great time with your family and friends – planning your perfect day!
