How to carry out your wedding theme

When you begin thinking about your wedding what do you visualize? Your colors, the flowers, your bridesmaids gown? Most likely, you see all the images that have been running in your mind since you were 4 years old. Those images may vary as you move through the process of planning your wedding. If you keep a journal of your thoughts, you can determine what you will and what you will not be willing to compromise on as your wedding elements take place. Deciding early on what parts of the wedding are most important will help you create a unified look.

To brand your wedding succesfully, it is always best to start with one element of your wedding that you are definately not willing to compromise on, such as your flowers or bridesmaids gowns, and develop from there. Example: If you have chosen pink and brown for you rwedding colors, but after looking at invitaions and their designs, you realize you MUST have the one with the green ribbon, you realize you are willing to make some adjustments in order to have that choice. If you can be more flexible with your fabrics, flowers and/or linens, for instance, you decide to make different choices in order to have that MUST have invitation.

Every element of your wedding shoulf tie back into your theme and the colors you have selected- even your wedding website (if you have one) If you want to improve your chances of matching your theme, try to choose a website service that allows you to select from a wide variety of schemes and templates. Or if you can take it one step further and work with a provider that will allow you to work with your own schemes like WeddingWindow.com, you can match your colors exactly! You will also want to try to find imagery that ties in with your theme. For example, if your having a beach wedding, you may want to incorporate water or beach images into your website. If you are having a city wedding, you may want to have a skyline shot. Either way, if you can include images that include the two of you, you will not only carry the theme of your wedding through to your website but also add the personal touch that reflects the two of you and no one else.
