It’s easy to see the picture in your head of your dream wedding, but sometimes, the idea you have doesn’t come across so easily when you’re trying to explain your vision to your bridal party, vendors or others involved in the wedding planning process. Enter: inspiration and vision boards. By putting together a visual collage of all your ideas, everyone in your party is able to truly see what you do, and then there is no room for debate from those who might want to take over your day with their own visions. In this day and age, it is easiest to create and share your inspiration boards using technology, such as making a ‘Wedding Day!’ board on Pinterest.

Pinterest allows you to save pictures, DIY step-by-step ideas and websites all in one place. You can create individual ‘Pinspiration’ boards for each part of your wedding season, or just create one big board for your big day. Then, once your vision is depicted on your account, you can share a link via text or email. 

While this may all seem pretty uniform, each bride has her own unique style that she should be able to express at her wedding.

A bride with a southern style might have the groomsmen wearing boots and jeans, magnolia flowers scattered as the table centerpieces, and custom wood stained signs showing off the story of her and her soon-to-be spouse. She may also search for a rustic venue in a homey location, whether it be an outdoor barn or a distressed brick building.

A bride with more of a taste for the classics may want a  traditional church wedding with muted colors to provide contrast to the wedding gown. She may aim for a more time-honored venue, such as a country club, with a black tie dress code and roses of multiple hues on every white table-clothed table.

A bride with a vintage style may choose to host her reception in a historic building with historical  significance to the area. She may wear her grandmother’s wedding veil or her mother’s dress, opting for  each of the flower girls to sport  crowns made of Baby’s Breath flowers. A vintage car could transport the newlyweds  from the church to the reception, with guests following on a trolley car.

Whether you prefer cowboy boots or platform heels, each bride can find all they need to visualize and design their day on an inspiration board. When the bride knows and can show what exactly she wants, every detail can fall into place with style and ease.
