Luckily for you, there’s a nifty little thing called an inspiration board! With so many crazy ideas running through your head, it can be hard to keep all of these creative thoughts in order. If you feel you are at the point of going crazy with all the floral arrangements, wedding dresses, and cake designs floating around in your brain, it’s time for you to sit down and put together an inspiration board… or maybe 5.

Benefits of Making an Inspiration Board

Inspiration Boards are the best way to create a guide to a theme for your wedding so that your ideas don’t go all over the roadmap. This will keep you from becoming more overwhelmed than you already are. Another reason to start organizing is to help your wedding planners and vendors understand your vision and how you picture your day. This board will help these planners make your wedding more like you than you even know. Without visual examples of your ideas and what you think is beautiful, how would anyone actually know how to plan your wedding?

What to Put on Your Inspiration Board

What you put on your inspiration board is totally up to you and completely personal, but sometimes it can be helpful to have a little guidance on how to make it. Wedding boards can cover ideas for every aspect of the wedding or just certain parts such as the dress or flowers.  Here is a list of topics to think about before making your boards

  • Dresses/dress styles
  • Color swatches 
  • Flower types/arrangements
  • Foods
  • Venues (Indoor or Outdoor)
  • Cakes/desserts
  • Fabrics
  • Wedding trends

Keep in mind that these are just a few ideas to guide you while making your board, but feel free to add anything that seems important to you!
