There is so much that goes into a wedding, we all know that. And it doesn’t happen over night. Some brides (and grooms too, but let’s be real here, it all her) decide to take on this challenge on their own. Some prefer to enlist the help of wedding planners and decor specialists.
Are we going to have flowers? Or candles? What is our colour theme? Do we need chair covers?
And the list of questions goes on…
Having been on the scene during the set up of our Stylized Bridal Shoots, which you can view in my photography portfolio, it is crazy how much time and thought goes into making things “look nice.”
Everything is placed strategically, making sure that things are symmetrical, beautiful, and not a fire hazard.
While you don’t need 100 pictures of the center pieces, you do need a few artistically captured photos just for your memories, whether to appreciate your masterpiece down the road, or to laugh even at the disaster it was. (Red table clothes, what was I thinking?!)
So what’s your plan?
- Do It Yourself Venture! There are also amazing DIY decor inspirations on Pinterest that are absolutely stunning and great for the couple on a modest budget. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, but truth be told, it is a TON of work. So be prepared, and don’t wait until its one month before your wedding to start.
- Hire A Professional. You have enough on your plate, let the pros do their work. Give them some inspiration to work from (Again, Pinterest ladies, it’s the best!) and wash your hands of it. Just remember, you give them a budget, and they will try to work within it. But that is also given that you are realistic as to how far your budget will take you.
