There are SO many things to select and finalize when it comes to planning your wedding. From vendors, decor, and attire… the list can be long! But before you lock down any of these details, you need to choose your wedding day aesthetic!
If you’re one of those brides who has had their wedding Pinterest board prepped and ready to go (since forever) — with all of your inspiration, ideas, and different wedding vibes to consider — this may not be a hard thing for you to lock down.
BUT if you are one of those brides who has a hard time narrowing down details or can’t differentiate between themes, then confirming your aesthetic may be the next step in wedding planning.
What Is A Wedding Day Aesthetic Anyway?
Essentially, this is your overall theme or wedding vibe that you want to create for the big day. Are you feeling rustic wedding vibes? Classic black tie? Beachy boho wedding vibes?
Choosing a wedding day aesthetic is a great way to make sure everything flows and is cohesive — from your decor to the wedding venue. So, what are some ways to narrow this down? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
1. Consider The Wedding Seasons
While your wedding day style doesn’t need to be dictated by the season, taking this into consideration is a huge help. Consider the time of year to help select the smaller details like a seasonal color palette, in-season decor or florals, to even your venue selection!
If you’re getting married in the dead of winter, an outdoor location may not be top of mind. All of these little elements help bring together the bigger picture that is your wedding day aesthetic.
2. Take Hints From Your Venue
Is your wedding location a city vibe or located at a stunning countryside barn? Are you interested in a grand ballroom or a Mexican resort beach wedding?
All of these locations give good insight into selecting a wedding venue and decorating your wedding to align with the venue. From there, you can select colors, florals, and even a wedding dress that compliments your location.
3. Review Your “Must-Have” List
A bridal must-have list includes items or elements that are non-negotiable for the big day. If your list contains things like vintage details, mason jar floral arrangements, a grand seating chart or elegant chiavari chairs, then you are one step closer to determining your wedding day aesthetic.
4. What’s The Dress Code?
Whether your wedding dress code is a casual backyard wedding, a black tie formal event, or an elegant beachside party — your aesthetic should tie in and match the vibe!
5. Do What Feels Authentic to YOU!
At the end of the day, your wedding should be an extension of you as a couple! Stay true to your personal style and interests to tie into your big day. If you’re a laid-back couple or really into wedding trends, reflect that in your aesthetic!
