Did you just get engaged? First of all… Congratulations! Depending on how you look at it, wedding planning can either be stressful or exciting. One of the best ways to make sure that it’s the latter is to stay organized and have a clear vision for your big day. If you’re wanting to do just that, then a wedding day vision board could be the perfect solution.
Creating a Wedding Day Vision Board
Having a wedding day vision board is an excellent way to make sure that all of your decisions are cohesive. From aesthetics to how you want your day to feel, there are so many different things you can include on a vision board.
There are a few different ways that you can get started if you’re interested in creating a wedding day vision board.
Be Sure to Prioritize
When it comes to planning and orchestrating your wedding, it’s important to know what your priorities are. Having a clear understanding of what’s essential to you will help you narrow down your options and know when it’s okay to compromise.
When making your vision board, consider adding what’s most important to you first. You can then build from those core things.
Possible additions to start with include:
- Your dream wedding dress
- An ideal venue
- Color scheme
- The overall “vibes” of the day
Pick Your Colors
Color is one of the most vital things to consider when planning your wedding. Making sure that your design options are visually cohesive is essential and color is a powerful way to do that. Making sure that your vision board has a color scheme will help you stay focused and make it more appealing.
If you don’t like your vision board, you won’t be likely to return to it, so only include your favorite things!
Make it Digital
Digitizing your vision board is a great idea. When you do this, you can easily share your board with vendors and make sure that everyone is on the same page. While it can be fun to make a vision board out of paper and other supplies (and that’s definitely still an option!), consider having a digital version that you’ll easily be able to return to.
There are a variety of different design options that you can use when making your vision board digital. Don’t be afraid to examine a few different options and see which one makes the most sense for your specific wedding day vision board.
Return to Your Board
Making a vision board is all about returning to it when you need to make big decisions. If you make your vision board one day and then never look at it again, you’re not taking advantage of the full potential of the tool.
Consider keeping your vision board in a place where you can easily see it. This can help you make sure that you’re staying motivated and completing what you need to on your wedding planning timeline.
